It seems that most people who have read the manga are disappointed with the series, and that's completely understandable. I usually like to read a manga and then ignore the anime version of it, or possibly try the first few episodes. It's sad but true: the animes just don't quite live up to their manga counterparts.
That aside, I have never read the manga, so take into account that my review is written without knowledge of the story manga-style.

Fantastic! This anime is truly amazing! I want to start by telling you this:
The reason that this anime is so great is the innocence and purity of the read more

Just watch the first episode — that’s all it should take. There are plenty of lengthy reviews for D.N.Angel, so I'll try to be concise to save you some time:

What makes this anime truly stand out is how the story, the characters, and the romance are all serious and pure. This is not another silly anime where the characters degenerate into loons or crack stupid jokes. They take their lives seriously, which in turn allows you to take them seriously, and eventually get sucked into their world.

Though most episodes are captivating and fun, the show does stagnate in places. read more

Let me lead of by first saying that I love D.N.Angel and its an amazing anime, however, I just feel that it had the potential of being so much better than what was presented with the final product in the anime.

The story of D.N.Angel is relatively original as you don't see other anime shows adopting what D.N.Angel has - an angel stealing artwork in hopes of preventing world destruction, if you put it in very simple terms. In a nutshell, the Niwa family has long been the bloodline that holds the dark-winged angel, Dark, in their male children and every 40 years or so, read more

CHARACTER/STORY:
The plotline of DNAngel is really one of a kind. There are so many unique twists throughout the story that there is rarely a dull moment. Basically a boy named Daisuke Niwa falls in love with a girl names Risa Harada. On his fourteenth birthday he is basically rejected by Risa and later when he is thinking of her his DNA has some kind of reaction to Risa and he changes into the phantom thief Dark Mousy every time he thinks of Risa. To make matters difficult, Dark has the same reaction to Risa's twin sister Riku. But there is a problem- Risa is the read more

well both anime has romance... both main character steals art works for reasons and in both show's another main character comes in and falls inlove
Nurarihyon no Mago shares with D.N.Angel a crucial premise: your average teenager dealing with his first crush that can transform in a supernatural, fascinating and strong being. Reason and plot are different, but the feeling the shows both give are similiar.
Sukisho is similar to D.N.Angel because they both have the 'alter ego' plot.

It kinda reminds me of D.N.Angel... I think its because of the atmosphere? And I think Loki and Daisuke both have an adult form...
Both anime are about a legendary thief who took upon themselves their predecessors identity.
Both main characters steal valuables for different purpose (D.N..Angel: to prevent a fearfull event | Magic Kaito 1412: to learn the truth about his father death, and both have a childhood friend with them.
D.N.Angel is more supernatural and shoujo since the MC can actually transform into another being and the reaction is based on romance, while Magic Kaito 1412 is more about finding the real reason for his father murder and foil the organisation plans.
Both are about a phantom thief stealing things while being hunted by the police. The main characters act a little similar during the heist but their motives are a bit different. In both, however, the life as a thief runs in their family.
Both shows involve romance but it's more of a subplot in Magic Kaito and plays a more important role in D.N.Angel. They have supernatural elements as well, though more so in D.N.Angel.
D.N.Angel is a bit darker while Magic Kaitou tries to be more comic.
