This series is definitely Angelic!
Jun 08, 2007 reviewed by Jettneko
Renji is the rogue angel of every girl's dream! This is a series you won't regret buying. You'll love the guys in this manga too! You've got two duos to fall in love with: First, there's Renji, the bad-boy angel who fights like a demon, but wants to be a good angel, and his partner Kaito, the straight-laced supervisor of Renji while he saves his 10,000 souls, who is the only fighter who could match Renji in strength. Renji thinks they have nothing in common but later realizes that Kaito has felt the same outcast feeling he has.
Next, there's the two devils you can't help but like, Vinny and Toi--Vinny is a super-dark, sadistic devil who has a special interest in Renji and that keeps them coming back for more battles with the angel duo, and Toi is Vinny's smart-mouthed, chain-smoking subordinate whose personality reminds me a little of Sanosuke from Ruruoni Kenshin. Both devils dress like Goths/punks, fight like the demons they are, and want nothing more than to make everyone (including Renji and Kaito) as miserable as they are in hell.
The storyline moves well, the action is clean (not too muddled up with screen tone or sound effects like some tend to), and there is quite a bit of comedy and romance in this manga as well. Therefore, shojo, action, fantasy, and comedy fans will all have something to like in this series. The best part is with 10,000 souls to save, readers can spend a lot of time watching the exploits of Renji and Kaito.
