Reviews - What do customers think about Angel Diary, Vol. 1?
YOU SHOULD... NO YOU WILL READ IT!!!!!! Jul 9, 2007
This is one of the best Manga I've ever read! (Best for Korean, for manga in General, DNAngel rox a little more)It's funny, scary, and completly messed up! Perfect for any beginner, because it has almost all points, just not super powers, half animal people, and... that's about all it's missing! I LOVE IT!!! Buy it or face the consiquences! ^_^
Cute, but not ethralling. Jun 27, 2006
The art is nice, of course, but I'm left wanting some of the chemistry between the characters as in DD. The characters get more interesting in the following volumes, but a little to fluffy for my taste. I'll still read it though, since it IS kara ^.^;;
*also, a correction to the above spotlight review: TWO of the guardians are searching for DY; the other two are protecting her.
Cross-dressing, romance, angels, devils, spirit possession and er... (have I forgotten anything?) May 30, 2006
Yaay!!!!!!! The artist duo Kara and writer Lee Yuh-Hee of the glorious must-read Demon Diary series have created this Angel Diary series. However, although both series have similarities in artistry and style, Angel Diary is unconnected to the world and people of Demon Diary.
Chun-Yoo-Nim, the cute but not beautiful daughter of the royal family of heaven, is engaged by her father to the young king of hell. In order to escape her wedding she runs away to earth and poses as a normal teenage boy called Dong-Young. In the first volume of the series there are a few issues left unexplained, for example where is she living, if anyone is posing as her parents, and where does she get her money from. Four guardians from heaven who, would chance have it, are also posing as humans in the same school and vanquish evil spirits, are charged with finding her and bringing her back to heaven.
While trying to hide from the four guardians, Dong-Young also has to cope with being constantly possessed by ghosts and the strong advances from Bi-Wal another boy in her class. Of course Bi-Wal has a hidden idenitity and secretly knows that Dong Young is in fact a girl. Apart from the unanswered questions, the first volume also suffers from being slightly disjointed in places and not being as laugh-out funny as Demon Diary. The creators admit that they were rushed into finalizing this first volume.
However, the plus points far outweigh the minuses. The strory is funny and very very cute; Bi-Wal looks like a young version of the OMG gorgeous Eclipse from DD; there are echoes of the first volume of Eerie Querie with the spirit possession; cross-dressing elements; and a strong romantic theme throughout that was missing from DD. Indeed it is almost worth buying the volume for a copy of gorgeous half-dressed Bi-Wal picture at the beginning of the book.
If you are a fan of manhwa (Korean manga), the Demon Diary series, or Eerie Querie, this series is a must-buy. Hopefully the story will become stronger in the next volume and I can give it 4 stars.
For fans of the fantastic Demon Diary Mar 8, 2006
Demon Diary was one of the best manga series i've ever read. I just loved it so much, from the story to the characters it was pure gold. And though Angel Diary isn't connected at all to that wonderful manga, I'm seeing the greatness these creators possess shining through once again. All the things treasured in Demon Diary, are back here in Angel Diary. The story thus far is one of pure hillarity. But even so, I can't help but wonder what will happen down the line, it's turing out to be quite an inchanting plot. The characters, of course, are to die for. Their personalities alone are just amazing, they are so easy to instantly fall in love with. Even without Demon Diary, Angel Diary can stand alone as what is sure to be a great new manga. I can't wait to reach the climaxes the story is sure to have. Hopefully we'll get to spend more time with these characters then we did with Demon Diary's short (but amazing!) 7 volumes.
awesome Feb 27, 2006
It's fantasy but also some reality and the characters are completely realistic as well. Great buy, have read it several times myself in a few days. I can't wait for the next volume!
