Angel Sanctuary Vol 1 & 2 by Kaori Yuki
Anyway, as suspected the manga has all the details the original OVA did not. This story makes a lot more sense. So here's the run-down : Satsuna Modo is a normal highschool kid except he finds out that he's actually the reincarnated soul of Angel Alexiel. Alexiel and he twin brother Rosiel got in this huge war eons ago and both were trapped in a sort of stasis until recently due to some meddling underworlders and low ranking Angels. The war is back on but Alexiel's conscious hasn't completely awoken in Satsuna's body. But Satsuna has problems of his own. He's in love with his sister Sarah. Twisted right? Don't you love manga. I feel like I'm back in a VC Andrews book, but it's way better.
The thing about Angel Sanctuary, on top of the diverse characters, is just how beautiful it is. It's sooo pretty. When I was a teenager, I use to think Clamp was the epitome of pretty manga until I saw Angel Sanctuary pictures online. I suspect that all my follow-up posts will be fan-girl gushing over characters as if they are real. I rarely do this... I will be doing this with Angel Sanctuary. Warning, I will be all gushy and annoying from here on in when talking about this series. I love Rosiel. He's so insane, vapid and lusty. The opposite of an Angel. He's practically the devil himself. He'll stop at nothing until he either wins his twin sister back at his side or destroys her utterly. Yeay!! I love a good renegade!
