Quebec adapted the manga into a 26-episode anime series which aired in Japan on TV Tokyo from April 3, 2003, until September 25, 2003. At the story's opening, Daisuke declares love for his crush, a girl named Rise Hard, on his fourteenth birthday.
He is told calmly by his mother Mike that, because of a strange genetic condition, all the males in Daisuke's family gain the countenance of Dark Mousy, a famous phantom thief. The transformation occurs every time Daisuke has romantic feelings for his crush or whenever he thinks too long about her.
The aforementioned commander of the police is a classmate of Daisuke's named Satoshi Atari. Dark steals certain artistic objects of value, works made by Satoshi's ancestors, because they contain dangerous magical properties.

The art gets better by every chapter into an outstanding art, the eyes, the clothes the scene actions with the flowing of emotions of the characters, is just amazing, Yukiru Sukiyaki is one of the greatest artists I have ever seen. Characters, in development is just very good, personalities so unique in each way, and gets a better development in every chapter.
I enjoy a lot the manga, because his mystery, story and characters, and the art being so amazing. So yeah in general is brilliant from what I have read vol.20 stage 3, the most recent chapters from monthly Asoka magazine. I've to admit when I read the first two volumes of D.N. Angel I didn't understand the story very well, but the drawing style and all the characters which were introduced so far were amazing.
I managed it and here goes my first reviewable character design is very well, Kirk Sukiyaki has managed to create awesome clothes for Daisuke and his friends. Moreover, the background is also drawn very well and one can say that Sukiyaki has improved a lot during her work.
The story is amazing but confusing at the beginning. It's much easier to get into the whole thing while watching the anime, but after some time you're also able to get into the story while reading the manga.
The plot is easy (I won't go much into detail) and very well outlined. Furthermore, I would say that D.N. Angel is not only my favorite manga, but also a very, very good one which should be read by all of you who like mystery and all the other topics D.N. Angel is related to.
Think if it is like this(by the way I'm trying to reveal as little as possible) this is d.n.angel the anime with couple of weeks and no ending :D well in English at least. The mood of the story is better and there are several things in the manga that isn't included in the anime.
Like wise the anime has some stuff the manga does (like an ending). I definitely recommend it to all those that love romance dramas with bits of action on the side.
Although it seemed that the main character and rival had something for each other (unfortunately, I don't know why some animes do that, but it's kind of funny, since they're both guys, still nothing happens BTW) it was still a very good manga. The action and circumstances that the main character, Daisuke finds himself in are quite tricky, and it was wonderful to watch him figure things out.
The January issue of Monthly Asoka went on sale on Tuesday and confirmed that Kirk Sukiyaki's should manga. N. Angel will end in three chapters. This year's May issue of Katakana Shorten's Monthly Asoka magazine has announced that manga. N. Angel will resume serialization.
