The 3 episode OVA is just a tease to what a TV series would look like. The OVA is rushed and incomplete. The story is there and so is the passion of the characters, but the lack of motivation to finish it was not. The manga of Angel Sanctuary, on the other hand, was phenomenal. Kaori Yuki's artistic ability lures you into the characters life and the plot of the story. The main story is a bit much to get over at the beginning, but the story about heaven and hell is quite impressive. While the story is not only wrong (the incest), sacrilegious, and a questionable theory about the after life, it is also, beautifully drawn, well thought out, and well researched.
The Plot of Angel Sanctuary
The Characters of Angel Sanctuary
There are the character's from Hell, which usually dress in darker clothes. Belial is the most beautiful of the Seven Deadly Sins. He/She is always in different clothing that is elaborate or barely nothing. Kurai is the princess of the Gehennan Royal Family. She has control over dragons. Boyz and Noyz are twins that also are from the same race. Kurai also has a cousin, Arachne, which is a cross dresser. Lucifer is obviously in the manga as well. He has very little to do with the story until you get hit with the most amazing twist ever!
In Heaven the characters are more brighter with their clothing. Mostly you have Nazi looking uniforms, but then characters such as Michael wears goth like clothing while Raphael wears suits and womanizes people. Heaven is more corrupted than Hell at some points. With the perversion of Angel experiments and many other things, Heaven has untrustworthy people.
