I've read this manga for a total of 2 times. Honestly, the second time I read this manga, all it took was the 1st page to kept me reading on to the last page (84 chapters) within a day or two. This is really one of the most amazing works I have read, apart from being somewhat fictional and exaggerated (due to lack of explanation for some feats) at times.
This is quite an interesting manga because, as per what the mangaka wrote in the last few pages of his last chapter, do not look at the story as "Angel Densetsu", but instead look at it as the characters living their likes in Heikaku town. So even after the end of the manga, the characters live on ... in our hearts.
This is mainly about school life, slice-of-life, drama, romance and lots more. What's particularly striking to me on my second time reading it is that I begin to feel for the main character Kitano Seiichirou. And I begin to liken it to the real life, and think that this manga is quite realistic in its view towards discrimination. And also, if you work hard to understand people, eventually others will understand you, even if you are discriminated badly against, like Kitano.
One drawback about this manga is the lack of Kitano's past, which was only slightly revealed as a side story near the last few chapters, the explanation of Kitano's skills and the cramming of some character development in the last few chapters. It made the manga seem a bit rushed towards the end.
The art in the beginning chapters was quite inconsistent, especially for Kitano. But other than that, most of the background, characters and action scenes were drawn quite well. One thing to note is that the art used is the REALISTIC style. Not manga style. Which is good, since it makes the manga look more realistic.
For the most part, the characters were consistent and the interaction between them is golden. There were some archetypes present, but overall the characters feel quite original and fun. The unique thing about this manga is that although the school- and delinquent-style of Angel Densetsu reminds me of Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, there is a totally different feel of the comedy aspect due to the contrast between characters inside Angel Densetsu.
And Kitano has got to win a prize for one of the most original character designs EVER. You've heard of discrimination because the person looks like a delinquent (ToraDora)... has psychic powers... looks like a wrestler, robot, gorilla, etc. (Cromatie High School), has a baby on his back (Beelzebub) and so on... but have you ever heard and seen the DEVIL? Lol, actually the main point of this is not his looks, but rather his and other people's reactions to things. Now, there is a problem with Kitano-kun, and that is inconsistency. Somehow, he learnt to speak properly after the first few chapters, but still, this does not make it less funny XD.
Personality-wise, I think that the characters do fulfill their role well, except to me, maybe Takehisa and Ogisu, who seem to fade out at quite a number of chapters.
I'm expecting a third read soon :D.
Words are hard to describe how funny this manga series is. Too bad it was only made into a 2 episodes OVA. Pity how this manga was not recognised well enough, I figured that this manga should be a good read for people who are discriminated or want to learn more about discrimination. Yes, at times the comedy due to discrimination might seem sad, but because it is so exaggerated, it is bittersweet.
