When Seikichi Kuroda—self-proclaimed "guardian" and head thug of Hekikuu High School—hears rumors of a first-year transfer student named Seiichirou Kitano terrorizing his entire class, Seikichi tries to intimidate him through authority. However, things go awry when he witnesses something horrifying—Seiichirou has a face so dreadful and haunting that even Seikichi hurries away in fear.

But despite his menacing appearance, Seiichirou has a heart of gold. Inhibited by his poor communication skills and fear-inducing looks, he has never managed to convey his true self to his terrified peers, resulting in his lifelong ostracization. Now the new guardian, Seiichirou discovers that sometimes friends can be found in the most unlikely places and through the most unusual circumstances.

As the manga progresses the artwork gets a bit better however. That being said I would recommend watching the ...

Recommendation: Skip it.

Angel Densetsu is an exercise in how long you can run the exact same joke into the ground before it becomes tiresome. As it turns out, 2 episodes seems to be the far upper limit.

That's not to say Angel Densetsu has no redeeming qualities. The comedy isn't awful and it looks nice, with pretty strong animation and character design for its era. But mostly, you are treated to one joke over and over again, that the protagonist has a scary face and all the tough guys are afraid of him even though he's actually very nice. Occasionally they find a fresh way to ...
