A Mini Shrine to Angel Sanctuary

CAN LOVE SURVIVE THE WRATH OF HEAVEN?

Ok i havent been here too long but still I haven't heard anyone talk about Angel Sanctuary!

I fully believe this is one of the most bad @ss animes ive ever seen. I just wanted to make a place where peeps could come and put their two sence on this hella cool anime! Im calling this the Mini shrine so people can pretty much talk, do what ever as long as it has to do with AS...


What it's about: ***Some small Spoilers****






This is a very complex and tragic story. It is set in the pre-apocalypse of 1999. Long ago an angel, Alexeil leads the demons to challenge the angels of heaven lead by her twin brother, Raziel. However, Alexeil was defeated but with her remaining power she seals her brother within Earth so that he will be imprisoned forever. For this Alexeil is punished by infinite reincarnations which each dying a tragic death. Then the story starts with Setsuna Modou, a young disorientated boy, who is Alexeil's reincarnation. WIthin him lies a hidden desire to love his younger sister, Sarah. Sarah too loves him. But their love are doomed from the beginning. With Demons reincarnating into bodies of their friends, their sole goal is to awaken Alexeil to lead them again to challenge the heavens. However, Setsuna don't care much except for his love of his sister but fate is cruel when Razeil is freed from his seal. He then plan to kill Sarah. He feels that it's her fault for taking his beloved sister away from him. This time, Setsuna has no choice but to awaken the Alexeil inside him to protect the one he loves.


So now that you know what its about... or maybe you already did...

Have fun and enjoy!

I really love the Angel Sanctuary manga. It's got the best manga art I've ever seen...which serves to make up for anything lacking in the story...God how this series reminds me of CLAMP.

When, oh when, will some daring company buy the translation rights to this lovely manga and release it in the US?! I'm stuck on vol. 11 and I've had to resort to reading really vague spoilers. Ugh.

Anyhow, er...I like Alexiel and Kira a lot, though I can't say I particularly dislike any of the characters (well, Setsuna has his moments, but he's pretty so he's forgiven). Whee.

Yeah Setsuna is a very odd guy... you want to love him but the he is played out it is so up and down! I also believe the art is amazing and am really into the manga right now!

I've been meaning to pick it up, but I've been short on cash lately. I heard the manga was really good and I've seen some of the art. Very nice! Is there just one AS disc, or is there an OVA collection?

Does anyone here know when more episodes are going to come out? Right now I'm rather stuck on where Setsuna goes to Hades (is that right?) to go get Sarah... and I'm dying to know what's going to happen!

Never. That's it. The OVA is basically an advertisement for the manga. The creator of the manga has stated that she doubts a TV series will ever be made either, as her manga story is much too controversial, even for late-night Japanese TV.

The artwork of Angel Sanctuary is so beautiful~

i've seen the OVA series, enjoyed it - but it was just TOO, way TOO short. the main storyline is very interesting also, but i have yet to read the complete manga series.

^FallenAngel^ is another AG Angel Sanctuary fanatic....i'm still surprised she hasn't posted here yet

:matsu looks left, then right....wondering where ^FA^ is:

X is a lot like it in atmosphere, plus the length of the story and the general sense of confusion from having like 80 important characters @_@

(*cough* Yes, that was an exaggeration, but sometimes it feels that way.)

Angel Sanctuary is like FLCL to me in that it is so weird that its good. I enjoyed the hell out of seeing the 3 eps at Otakon last year.

I haven't seen this thread, cos I haven't been online for ages!!
Unlike ya matsu!! crazy nut!


Another AS thread!! It's good to see there's alot of ppl out there that actually like this anime/manga!!

Angel Sanctuary's my all time favourite with great artwork and storyline!! Abit confusing though, but original!! 3 OVAs are just intros with was well done (my opinion) and 20 vols of manga, well they were beautiful!! hehee..... I like the last vol, but the ending.... well... i think it lacked abit of something.....

I wish there's more eps though, cos it has some good music as well, eg: Messiah, Sanctus!! Very dark, gothic!
