Da Capo

Da Capo

On an island where cherry blossoms bloom all year-round, love seems to always be in the air. It is in this magical atmosphere that Asakura Junnichi lives, and when he dreams he travels to the dreams of others, rather than have any of his own. In everyday high-school life, he is accompanied by his adopted sister, Nemu, and an eclectic group of friends including a j-pop idol-in-the-making and a girl they knew from their childhood. Promises, and magic, and love -- Junnichi seems to dream about every girl he knows, but which girl dreams of him...?

Both of these animes deal with an issue which the society does not tolerate. Sibling love. Not sisterly or brotherly love but a love between a man and a woman. You get to see how these characters deal with this forbidden love and eventually accept it instead of running away from the feeling and that feeling eventually leads to incest. But incest is not the big issue that these two animes deal with but rather how they deal with the feeling of love towards their brother/sister (even though they themselves believe it is wrong to have these feelings). I would also like to point out that incest in only implied and there's nothing explicit. One thing to note is that angel sanctuary is only a 3 part ova so it deals with the issue rather early on while Da Capo is 26 eps so it doesn't really deal with the issue till later. So if this sounds intriguing, I suggest you give it a try.

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.
