My third readthrough, and just got to the Kitano family portrait... My very first thought was "Awww the cutest family!!!" Clearly, I have been brainwashed by the demons. <3 Best manga.

tbh I enjoyed this much more than Claymore

Seriously one of the best manga i have ever read, i would give it a nine out of ten, just because of the way it ended. It was not at all what i expected when i was looking for manga in the "martial arts" genre.

This was so great! I wasn't sure what to expect, but once there was some understanding within the other characters I was really into it. The top panel of this page was probably my most favourite part: http://bato.to/reader#5be099ccc624011e_17

24 years since it started and 16 since it ended and still one of the best manga i ever read, no drama and very objective.

I will recommend this any day for a good read.

seriously i still hope there will be extra story about grown up kitano :3 

at first i thought this was a junk cuz  the drawing at first page was so shocking but later wooowwww!!!!! i fell in love...hahahahahaxD

Darn you! I saw someone commented on this masterpiece and now I have to reread the entire thing for the umpteenth time. You have robbed me of my spare time over the weekend!!

I was recommended to this, and I seriously fell in love with it. The art may be a bit crude, but dang is it not good. He draws some hyper realistic faces some times. And holy shit this was claymore's artist? Really hope to see some more adventures one day... ha ha ha....

An awesome and really unique read. The chapters about Kitano's parents and (mainly) Takehisa take the icing on the cake to me. We never really got much insight on Takehisa and I never saw anything wrong with that, since everyone was pretty much the same. He was basically the loyal thug to Kitano and I was okay with that, but what he did at Ch. 81 pretty much sealed the respect I had to him.




Well, at the start I didn't like how Kitano only got tangled up with the delinquents, but by the time Heizo's SATAN INCARNATE happened I was enjoying all of it throughly.

It's a little big, so...

This quote by a highly idiotic person http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/angel-densetsu-r460"I never realized ignorance could be so idiotic" Well ignorance is what you don't know where as stupidity is your inability to grasp what you do know, but this is still funny :P


And this was funny too http://bato.to/read/_/6861/angel-densetsu_v3_ch13_by_manga-sketchbook/35

If he's such a nice guy, how come hes willing to watch some poor guy get dragged away in class, hell for the whole class to sit by and allow that is pathetic. Not the first time I've seen this kind of thing in a comic either. Do japanese schools suck this bad or is the comic just being dramatic?

Great series and definitely worth the read but I really hate this type of ending. I get the author's intention but I'm getting kinda sick of manga series having next to no closure in their endings.

This manga was such a joy to read


i like the way the author views this story..like each page of his book is just a window wherein the readers are able to peek at the lives of the characters of AD. and even tho he already stopped making these windows, the lives of the characters just continued on and on. it's a really nice way to view things.

I was just re-reading this and when I got to the "I was born like that" talk with the teacher it suddenly reminded me of Face a poem by Steven Jesse Bernstein:


Obviously the direct comparison are limited...


Anyway, I do really like this manga simply because of how far it strays into the absurd whilst still being full of straight playing earnest characters. One wouldn't work without the other.

Last time I couldn't get past chapter 6, just because I found the lack of depth of humor to be annoying, and because I found myself sympathizing with Kitano more than laughing at the absurdity situations he finds himself in.


After many chapters and someone understanding who Kitano is, I can actually laugh.  I never thought I'd laugh so hard in a chapter called "A morning jog".

yes kuroda is annoying as hell, and the MC is dumb as fuck. overall i found it a bit too long/repetitive. But it was interesting to see the author of Claymore perfecting his art.

Kuroda is so annoying, i'm always rooting to not see him in the chapters -_-

Man I had goosebumps all over while reading this. It's really sweet, funny, and heart warming.

Thank you.

You know, this series has one of the best final chapters ever.  Such a great ending.  It's hilarious, touching in places, and it has so many great bits that kind of remind you of all the great stuff through the series.  Everyone gets little in character moments, and as a gang of friends/badasses, it sort of finally brings everyone together and shows you what Kitano has, mostly accidentally, built over the series.  


My favorite character is Takehisa.

When claymore finished, i demand angel densetsu remaster ! ! !

voldemort in his school days

he's so nice that made me shed tears '-'
