volumes. In 1996 it was adapted into a 45-minute OriginalVideoAnimation.



Angel Densetsu is a story about Seiichirou Kitano, a kind and naive boy with the [[AllLovingHero heart of an angel]], but [[FaceOfAThug the sinister looks of a devil]]. This causes many (hilarious) misunderstandings, leading people to assume that he is a villain or heroin addict, and results in him unknowingly receiving the title of being the head thug, or "school guardian" at his new school. This causes him to become [[ShroudedInMyth a legend]] that brings many thugs to challenge him (which leads to even more misunderstandings that further his {{Badass}} image). Kitano, for pretty much all of the series, remains [[SelectiveObliviousness blissfully unaware]] of his reputation, and is frequently confused by the odd behavior of his classmates and teachers around him. At the same time, a group of friends steadily gathers around Kitano as they realize the good person that he is on the inside.

* NoSocialSkills: Kitano. Much of the series is driven by his misunderstanding of basically everything. His inability to communicate very well with other often leads them to assume terrible things about him and run away. Likewise, Kitano seems only vaguely aware of his own frightfulness.


Added DiffLines:

* ToxicFriendInfluence: Inverted with Kitano. All of his friends were at one point obsessed with fighting but after spending time with him mellow out.


Added DiffLines:

* UnskilledButStrong: Kitano doesn't know how to fight, but years of getting beat up have helped him hone an ability to [[StoneWall take punches like a champ.]] In fact most of his fights are won by him just letting his opponent tire themselves out. His double palm strike is also just a really strong shove, nothing special.

* CassandraTruth:
** Ryoko will tell anyone who will listen that Kitano is an innocent, normal guy, but nobody believes her because they have already been convinced by the rumors of his delinquency. This is especially true of Kitano's delinquent friends who are certain that their "guardian" is a dangerous badass. The principal also ignores his subordinate who suggests to him that Kitano is not necessarily bad just because he looks that way.
** Kitano cannot get anyone to believe him when he protests that he's not a hoodlum or explains that he's only trying to help.
