Reviews - What do customers think about Flock Of Angels Volume 1 (Flock of Angels)?

Angels Among Us.  Sep 6, 2008
I was first hooked by the title of the book, "Flock of Angels". After reading the back, I thought it was an interesting enough story that I'd read it. I'm glad I did.

The foundation of the story is definitely a unique one. A virus that causes wings to grow on a person's back, and has been on the world for decades. And, like in today's society, there are those who fear and misunderstand those who succumb to it, treating them like less than human.

I think any individual will find some connection with the characters in the story. I did, and I love the book. I recommend it to anyone! Especially angel lovers!
Wonderful shoujo that's a bit more grown up, plus sci-fi & moral aspects.  Sep 5, 2008
Another amazing manga series that's been ignored in book stores.
I was pleasantly surprised that this series didn't cater to the typical young audience with just "pretty boys with wings" as its selling point.

Instead, this series takes on issues on discrimination, ways to overcome it, abuse, illness/extinction, and ultimately procreation.

Since this series is only 3 volumes long, you'd get to see Shea grow up & get to the point with each book. (which is pretty refreshing compared to other series that extends tention, conflict and drama by dragging their feet and keeping their characters ignorant/naive for an unrealistic amount of time).

I highly recommend this for those who are tired of the typical shoujo high school drama, love triangles, and magic power gimicks.

And have high hopes for Aurora Publishing and their choices for released titles with substance, rather than "eye candy".
Angelosis  Mar 18, 2008
Okay, so I was skeptical at first with another angel manga, but I was pleasantly surprised with this volume. I really got into the struggle of Shea having to deal with his new-found world-wide fame as being the spokesperson for bringing the news of the Angelosis virus, which is what makes the humans grow wings. It deals with different moral issues, but not so much in a cheesy, child-like way.
What are Angels?  Sep 13, 2007
Are they really the supreme children of God? Do they really exist? In this story by Shoko Hamada. You get a chance to see that "Angels" are not what religion depicts them to be. They are beings that exist in our everyday society, most hidden from fear of being discovered while others use the power of the media to their advantage. Meet Shea, a young quiet boy that lives a simple but happy life. Enjoys making clothing for his friends and little sister Pearl. But that soon changes with a ache in between his shoulder-blade, a protruding bump that seems to grow with every passing minute. When the media discovers his oddity he is taken in under the protection of the public welfare and discovers that there are others just like him. He soon meets "Angelaid," the hottest band in Tokyo. They're gorgeous, sexy and have WINGS!! Everyone on the street are wearing them, it's the hottest trend, or is there more than what meets the eye? This book gives science fiction a big plus, it reminded of "Clover" by the popular girls mangaka CLAMP. A must read for all science fiction fans.
