What is Seiichirou Kitano, a boy with the heart of an angel and the face of a devil, supposed to do when he starts his new life as a first year high school student? Accidently defeat the school "guardian" and become the most famous and feared gang leader in the town, of course! With his "henchmen" Kuroda and Takehisa in tow, Kitano turns a simple act of good will into an all-out war with Hakuun High!
This is sadly one of those anime that would have been really great if they had finished it, instead we are left with nothing more than a teaser of what "could have been". Too bad really this had really great promise for it's time, but considering it's so old I doubt they will ever finish it now.
"Angel Densetsu" - A Quirky Tale of Misunderstandings - 6/10 Story: 6/10 "Angel Densetsu" centers around the life of Seiichirou Kitano, a high school student who bears an uncanny resemblance to a delinquent despite his kind-hearted nature. The story explores the comedic and dramatic misunderstandings that arise due to Kitano's appearance, as well as his interactions with his classmates and others. While the premise offers a unique twist on the high school comedy genre, it relies heavily on the recurring gag of mistaken identity. This can make the narrative feel repetitive at times, though it does provide occasional moments of heartwarming character growth. It earns a story rating of 6 out of 10. Animation: 5/10 The animation in "Angel Densetsu" reflects the style of its era, with character designs and visual aesthetics that may appear dated to modern viewers. While it effectively conveys the characters' emotions and comedic expressions, it lacks the polish and fluidity of more contemporary anime. The animation quality remains consistent throughout the series, but it may not stand out as a particularly strong aspect. It receives an animation rating of 5 out of 10. Sound: 6/10 The sound design in "Angel Densetsu" complements the comedic and dramatic moments of the series. The background music and sound effects effectively enhance the mood, particularly during comedic scenes. However, the soundtrack may not feature particularly memorable tracks that leave a lasting impression. Voice acting is proficient, with characters' voices suiting their personalities. While the sound quality meets the standards of its time, it doesn't significantly elevate the viewing experience. It deserves a sound rating of 6 out of 10. Characters: 7/10 The characters in "Angel Densetsu" are the driving force behind its humor and heart. Seiichirou Kitano's contrast between his intimidating appearance and gentle nature provides the central comedic element. The series introduces a range of classmates and characters who contribute to the misunderstandings and character growth. While some character development occurs, the episodic nature of the series limits the depth of exploration for supporting characters. Nonetheless, the character dynamics and interactions are engaging and contribute to the series' charm. The characters receive a rating of 7 out of 10. Overall: 6/10 In summary, "Angel Densetsu" offers a quirky and comedic take on the high school genre, centered around the theme of mistaken identity. While it can feel repetitive due to its reliance on this recurring gag, it manages to provide moments of humor and character growth that make it enjoyable. The animation style reflects its era, and the sound design complements the mood effectively. If you appreciate comedic series with unique premises and don't mind the older animation style, "Angel Densetsu" is worth considering. With its mix of humor and heart, it earns an overall score of 6 out of 10 in my assessment.
I guess this was supposed to be a 40+mins ad for the manga and it worked,these 2 episodes really made me want to read it.The anime starts by introducing us to the creepy looking main character Kitano who despite his devilish look has the purest heart ever.We then go through his daily comedic yet sad adventures of being misunderstood and falling into trouble while having the heart of an angel,even if it's for a short period it still made me love the story and got me emotionally invested.It's too bad the manga didn't get a newer adaptation because these 2 episodes already show a lot of potential,more stories to be told and more characters to be developed
