Yuusuke was just a normal kid going to high school. Then one day, the cute and behaloed Noelle fell, quite literally, into his life, naked as a baby and every bit as innocent. Before he can even fathom what's just happened, Yuusuke is inducted into a rather odd family of otherworldly beings.

Papa is a Frankenstein monster with a taste for calisthenics. Mama is a gorgeous lady with a penchant for "round objects" -- really! The eldest sister, Sara, is literally invisible; the brother, Gabriel, is a teenage vampire with an attitude problem; and the youngest sister, Ruka, loves inventing things. There's a disapproving Grandma, who's a witch to the nth degree, and her vulture familiar. All Yuusuke wanted was for the beautiful Natsumi to even notice his attention, but now he has an angel-in-training to follow him wherever he goes. And Noelle, too, has a guide on her path to being an angel, the mysterious Michael.

Tenshi ni Narumon! is not what I expected, and it's not what you expect if you only watch the first 13 episodes. A typical romance comedy anime about "girl meets boy" and that is what you get, a cute MC who wants to become an angel for her beloved mixed with love triangles, shenanigans, flamboyant villains getting in the way. That's what it seems like really.

It's not that. Tenshi ni Narumon! is an Utena-type anime. Without spoilers it's hard to explain, but it's not what you expect. It turns physiological very fast thanks to characters who aren't the protagonist, Noelle. It reuses ...

Tenshi ni Narumon! is an anime series that doesn't really seem to know what it wants to be. It starts off with the premise of a clichéd shounen romance, (boy meets girl in a perverted way, she falls in love with him even though he is interested in another girl) but quickly falls into bizarre, almost childish humor (girl's family is essentially the anime version of The Munsters; an odd villain sends even odder minions [think giant darumas, toy houses, and rice cookers] to capture girl). The series also incorporates serious character drama, families being torn apart and pulled back together, and yaoi. Oh, and ...
