If I were to describe this anime in one sentence, it would be: "Pokemon with Battle Dolls!"

Story: 6/10
We follow little Mizaki, a little girl wanting to see her mother after years and years of being away from her. Upon arriving in the city where her aunt lives, she sees a jumbo vision screen that has two little battle dolls (known as Angles) fighting one on one. She is intrigued by them and decides to try it out for herself, unknown to Mizaki her mom is actually much closer than she thinks. This is the base of the storyline, along the way she meets new friends read more

A doll used in the Angelic Fights is usually treated by her (or rarely, his) owner (deus) as though it were a dear friend, with concerned cries going out when they are injured. Unlike most competition shows, however, Angelic Layer isn't treated as the be-all-end-all of life. Characters who take it read more

I saw this anime recently, and I must say the story was alright, but It's kind of boring if the main character always wins, and you know who will win as soon as fight starts. I'm not going to bother writing what this anime is about since you can read that in the summary at the top of this page.

The art was alright, CLAMP is well-known, and has "ok" art in my opinion, its not the best out there, but not bad. Also, this show is NOT widescreen, so that kind of disappointed me a little, but that doesn't really have read more
