Goro's down on his luck. He keeps losing jobs and has little money. One day he meets a fortune-teller outside of a pet store who predicts that his luck will change. That night three girls appear in his appartment claiming to be his guardian angels. Soon a total of twelve girls appear to help him, each one a reincarnation of a deceased pet once owned by Goro.

This seems to be an underrated series.

Of course it is not really original, but it is cute and well developed, with beautiful art and really good voice actor/actresses, and nice humor as well. The romance in the series is cutely done and the lack of real violence is a nice turn if you are in the mood of something cute and nonsensical but not outright silly and childish (something the series is not).

It is a cute series without being brainless, and with nice and cute characters. A sure watch to lighten up and relax.

I sure recommend it.

This is a review of the dubbed version.

Tenshi no Shippo, or Angel Tales as the dubbed version is called, is a supernatural, harem, romance series that is the least bit original. However despite the low score here on MAL and an seemingly ugly artsyle, I did find it to be a decent series in the end.

Story 6/10
The story starts off with this typical loser-guy Goro, who has no job and little money. A rather unlucky young fellow, who doesn't seem to have any promising future. Then suddenly he meets a fortune teller, and before you know it there are three angel girls coming to serve read more

Well, talk about another underrated series.

Angel Tales, is a very simple anime. It's just that. No huge plot-twists, no useless drama, useless elements, nothing. It's just a king of a harem anime.

Shortly put, our story starts with Goro Mutsumi, a young man with a bad luck. In his past, he took great care of lonely, stray, wounded pets, (in total 12 of them) and they wanted to repay his kindness by being his guardian angels. Simple, no?

Art is nothing outstanding, since it was a 2001 anime, still it was not outdated for it's time. Bandai Visual was lovely again.

Sound, this is where read more

The show itself is so cute and I fell in love with some of the characters. Having said this, it’s good to note that this show is pretty much a copy cat of every other harem out there. The story line is not that much different then all the others and it gets hard to keep things in line with 12 girls all over the place. It was hard to keep them all straight though because it seemed that there were more characters coming out of the wood work as the story went on. I don’t want to have to have a list with every read more
