The two have long abided by an uneasy peace treaty, but its time is almost up, and a new one has to be negotiated. Now, two agents--a top human agent and a beautiful assassin from the other world--must protect the only man who can seal the treaty from dark world renegades or die trying!

Heh... Wicked City would probably be the darker side of the Angel Sanctuary storyline. Wicked City is far more graphic in violence and content, but shares a similar story of love gained, love lost, love reclaimed. Recommended if you don't mind the extra gore in Wicked City or the incest in Angel Sanctuary... 0_o

Kasho no Tsuki

Kasho no Tsuki

Kasho no Tsuki is a tale of devotion between two companions -- Arimasu, a shunned shaman born of a human father and a demon-fox mother, and the one he saved as a child: Kagetsu, a member of a mountainous feline tribe, who can choose which sex to become once it mates. After years of lost contact, the two meet again, followed by Kagetsu asking to bear Arimasu's child. The problem? Kagetsu is currently in his male form. Things are complicated when Arimasu is set up for murder, causing the duo to escape back to the mountains of Kagetsu's birth.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Evangelion is an anime with messed up minds as well, though it is longer and thus has a better story than Angel Sanctuary

Now and Then, Here and There has the same kind of desperate feeling you find in Angel Sanctuary, but it is much better. Thus, if you liked Angel Sanctuary, I really recommend that you check out Now and Then.

Angelic bishounen involved in a conflict is the basic idea behind both Angel Sanctuary and Angel's Feather. Both are somewhat disjointed due to fact that the original formats of manga (in the case of AS) and game (in the case of case) contained too much information to be fully explored in these OVAs. A dramatic romantic involvement that includes incest (much more obvious in AS but heavily hinted in AF as well) and a supernatural element that relies very heavily on wings/angel-related imagery make these two anime a perfect match.
