"Angel's Hill" is a fantasy story depicting the stormy life of a mermaid princess, Luna.

Luna is put into a seashell and floated out to the sea because she breaks the rules of the Angel's Island. She is then rescued by humans aboard a ship but sold as a slave. She loses her memory and is treated very badly. Then comes Eiji, the son of the rich Kusahara family. He saves Luna and takes her to Japan. Surprisingly, Luna and Eiji's younger sister, Akemi, look as alike as if they were twins. Akemi, who has a perverse nature, turns into Luna on a whim. Akemi is kidnapped and taken to Angel's Island with Eiji. There, Akemi is almost offered as a sacrificial offering by a female shaman, Pyoma. Meanwhile, Eiji meets Soleiu, Luna's older sister, and together they get involved in the secrets of the island.

Such a waste! Especially considering how awesome the first volume was.

Note: This review is based off an amateur translation.

Story: The story started out pretty solid, surprisingly. It's not until the second volume where it starts going down hill. Tezuka introduces new characters at a rapid pace, only to use them as a cheap plot device.There's not a single chapter in the second volume that doesn't rely on a cheap Deus ex Machina. I have no problems with using Deus ex Machina, but these are just horribly executed.
There's zero suspense in the manga, considering Luna runs into an old friend every time she's in danger.
