In a world where most manga can be summed up in a sentence or two, Angel Sanctuary is a breath of fresh air. It is the only series that I can with confidence give perfect 10's across the board.

If you like weird and dark stories that are convulted which make you question the difference between good and evil, coupled with great art, then this is a series for you.

The premise of this series is about a boy(Setsuna) who is a reincarnation of a rebel angel named Alexiel whose crimes against heaven have her reincarnated until the end of time. Each of her lives ends in tragedy until her brother Rosiel is awakened which also in turn drags Setsuna into the middle of things. Confused yet? Just wait, it gets more convulted with political intrigue in Heaven and what is happening in Hell.

Both stories are about the reincarnation of troubled love and the questionable value of "holy" gifts, and both have some very nice art with similar ornateness.
The main characters really remind me of each other, and the overall atmosphere is really similar, at least in the first half. But AS is much longer.
