Daisuke Niwa is an ordinary, if slightly unlucky, middle school student. On his fourteenth birthday, he comes down with a 'condition' that has plagued the men in his family for three hundred years. When he sees his crush, Risa, he transforms into his alter ego, the phantom thief Dark Mousy. Unfortunately, when Dark Mousy sees his crush, Risa's twin Riku, he transforms back into Daisuke. The only cure for this craziness is if Daisuke can get Risa to fall in love with him...

I first saw the anime, and then the manga, compared the manga to the anime, the manga is way by far much better.
the story is very rich, the mystery in the story is so deep and fascinating.
the art gets better by every chapter into a outstanding art, the eyes, the clothes the scene actions with the flowing of emotions of the characters, is just amazing,Yukiru Sugisaki is one of the greatest artists I ever seen.
characters, in development is just very good, personalities so unique in each way, and gets a better developmeng in every chapter.
I enjoy a lot the manga, because his mystery,story and
characters, and the art being so amazing.
so yeah in general is brilliant from what I have read vol.20 stage 3, the most recent chapters from monthly Asuka magazine.
I've to admit when I read the first two volumes of D.N.Angel I didn't understand the story very well, but the drawing style and all of the characters which were introduced so far were amazing. I stopped reading D.N.Angel back then and later started to watch the anime, which is also very good, and tried to read the manga again. I managed it and here goes my first review~
The character design is very well, Yukiru Sugisaki has managed to create awesome clothes for Daisuke and his friends. Moreover the background is also drawn very well and one can say that Sugisaki has improved a lot
during her work.
The story is amazing but confusing at the beginning. It's much easier to get into the whole thing while watching the anime, but after some time you're also able to get into the story while reading the manga. The plot is easy (I won't go much into detail) and very well outlined. There are a lot of things happening which you haven't expected, but a lot of things happen you've expected, too.
Furthermore I would say that D.N.Angel is not only my favorite manga, but also a very, very good one which should be read by all of you who like mystery and all the other topics D.N.Angel is related to.
Think if it like this(by the way im trying to reveal as little as possible)
this is d.n.angel the anime with couple of tweeks and no ending :D
well in english at least. The last volumes are out in japan i believe but not 100% sure.
the writer never finished until recently. if you loved the anime of dn angel you are guranteed to love this. the mood of the story is better and there are serveral things in the manga that isnt included in the anime. Like wise the anime has some stuff the manga does (like an ending). the art is very nicely drawn and the
story is much like the anime's story.
i definitely recommend it to all those that love romance dramas with bits of action on the side.
if you've seen the anime for d.n.angel. think of the manga as an alternate retelling instead of a clone.
This was a very enjoyable manga. It had a very well thought out plot and characters. Although it seemed that the main character and rival had something for each other (unfortunatly, I don't know why some anime's do that, but it's kind of funny, since they're both guys, still nothing happens btw) it was still a very good manga. The action and circumstances that the main character, Daisuke finds himself in are quite tricky and it was wonderful to watch him figure things out. The action was wonderful too, they had different realms and all sorts of wonderful fantastic things. It was very wonderful, but
unfortunatly they had to end it in the middle of a very important end battle. I was so dissapointed. ALso, when I learned that there was an anime, I sadly found out that it was so different from the manga, it was almost as if it wasn't the same story (almost). they added characters, jumbled things up, and also, ending things in the middle. Maybe they ran out of money, but hopefully they'll fix things? the words that my friends said were "what the crap." same goes here.
still, if you want to read the manga and get cut off at the best part, go ahead. Maybe it's because they haven't translated it in english yet and maybe in japan they DO have the ending? hopefully. well, I hope you like it as I did,(not the unfortunate end though)
