Daisuke Niwa is an ordinary, if slightly unlucky, middle school student. On his fourteenth birthday, he comes down with a 'condition' that has plagued the men in his family for three hundred years. When he sees his crush, Risa, he transforms into his alter ego, the phantom thief Dark Mousy. Unfortunately, when Dark Mousy sees his crush, Risa's twin Riku, he transforms back into Daisuke. The only cure for this craziness is if Daisuke can get Risa to fall in love with him...

I've to admit when I read the first two volumes of D.N.Angel I didn't understand the story very well, but the drawing style and all of the characters which were introduced so far were amazing. I stopped reading D.N.Angel back then and later started to watch the anime, which is also very good, and tried to read the manga again. I managed it and here goes my first review~

The character design is very well, Yukiru Sugisaki has managed to create awesome clothes for Daisuke and his friends. Moreover the background is also drawn very well and one can say that Sugisaki has improved a lot read more

D.N Angel is yet again another one of those well known Shoujo mangas that are popular for all the wrong reasons.

Following along on the heels of the popular concept of master thieves such as Lupin the Third, Saint Tail or Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne, D.N Angel follows the adventures of a 14 year old schoolboy and his alter ego, an immortal art thief.

Mixing magic, romance and stock bishounen, this is your very typical Shoujo manga that fails to rise above the over hyped expectations and the inflated, bias reviews from fangirls.

★ Story (4) - The main problem with this manga is that the "plot" read more

This was a very enjoyable manga. It had a very well thought out plot and characters. Although it seemed that the main character and rival had something for each other (unfortunatly, I don't know why some anime's do that, but it's kind of funny, since they're both guys, still nothing happens btw) it was still a very good manga. The action and circumstances that the main character, Daisuke finds himself in are quite tricky and it was wonderful to watch him figure things out. The action was wonderful too, they had different realms and all sorts of wonderful fantastic things. It was very wonderful, but read more

Manga: Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne
Both series have a phantom thief who steals artwork, with some romance along the way. However, they're not simple repeats of one another (even though they seem like it at first), so you can still enjoy both without getting bored.

Manga: Kannade
Both are fantasy mangas about a kid who has to work as an art thief. Both deal a lot with art. Kannade is a bit darker than D.N.Angel. The artwork style is pretty similar.

Manga: 20 Mensou ni Onegai!!
I really think that some of the concepts that Yukiru Sugisaki used for the creation of DNangel and their characters are from this cute manga, check out the similarities!

Manga: Code Geass: Hangyaku no Lelouch
Not a very likely pair i know, but both the main characters in these manga have a secret identity that deals in crime

if you like D.N.Angel and you're looking for something more serious i'd give this a try

Manga: Samurai Deeper Kyo
Both of the stories contain characters with two different persons/personalities in one body. When that is said, the stories themselves are quite different from each other.
