Beautiful artwork, but wasn't too well written.
This manga was beautifully drawn and very detailed. While the story concept isn't exactly new, the first few pages certainly drew me in enough to purchase the book. The story is well written up until the middle, then I got the feeling I was missing some major background information somewhere and things started jumping all over the place. His powers weren't explored and characters that originally didn't have anything to do with each other are suddenly sacrificing themselves for half cooked reasons or suddenly developing hard core 'passion' for someone without proper explanation. Not to mention the merest hint of a in depth background on what allows the main character to do what he can, but is brushed aside without much thought. I believe if this manga was expanded, it could have been a hundred times better. Rather than losing much of it's story, they shouldn't have crammed this potential 5 volume long series into one volume.
3 stars for the potential and beautiful artwork.

The first thing was that because of it being only one manga, I expect the story to be INCREDIBLE. The story came off to me as "okay".... The "gist" of the story was very clear, but the storyline didn't make it very clear. There were a few characters involved that I had no idea their names, and I even got character names mixed up, because there was a lot going on. Towards the end of the manga, ALOT began to happen all at once, and it was very overwhelming, especially after struggling to keep up with everything throughout the whole book. The artwork however was very captivating, and you could tell that the illustrators took their time with the details. This could've easily been a 3 or 4 volume series, and that would've allowed the readers to have more time to get to know the characters, and their backgrounds. I hardly knew anything about Angels or Ash's past, or anything of the sort. If this is your first time reading manga, I would NOT recommend you read this.
