Angel Densetsu is a two episode ova about a pure and honest angel like guy. That sounds boring right? After all, watching an anime about an angel doesn’t sound interesting. So the mangaka came up with a great idea to entertain the audience. He gave the angel a demon’s face and made his voice sound like the howl of an animal in pain.
Despite his looks and sounds he really is a nice and kind guy. Don’t feel like believing me?
At the beginning of the anime, Kitano gets transferred to a new school. The principal freaks out when he sees his face. The students are scared of him and he doesn’t know what to do. He wants to make the students understand that he is not a scary guy but everything he does backfires.
The anime is about Kitano and his failed attempts at trying to be friendly. The story is predictable. The situations are unrealistic and exaggerated. The music isn’t remarkable. Despite all this, Angel Densetsu still manages to be entertaining. Even though we know that a certain character will get scared when he sees Kitano’s face, watching his reaction will still be amusing.
We’re used to watching good looking or plain protagonists. So watching this anime felt like a nice change. The most amusing thing about this anime is how wrong Kitano is every single time. He is simple and he misunderstands everything. He ended up being the school don because he tried to pick up the trash around the campus and he caused a fight between two schools because he wanted to return a lost wallet. Does any of that makes sense?
Angel Densetsu is a comedy but it might not make you laugh a lot, especially if you have not read the manga. It can however make you smile a few times and it can also make you like it. So if you have 47 minutes to spare, give this anime a try.
See you next time ^^/
