%% * HotForPreacher: Kosaku for Angela.

to:

%% * HotForPreacher: Somewhat subverted, in that Kosaku for Angela.doesn't really understand Angela's situation and doesn't see her as ForbiddenFruit--just a very attractive young lady he'd like to go out with, but everybody else (including Angela herself) doesn't want to encourage the relationship, as Angela would eventually have to decide between Kosaku or Jesus.



%% * NunsAreFunny

to:

%% * NunsAreFunnyNunsAreFunny: Kosaku not understanding what being a nun would mean for Angela is a RunningGag, and the very straight-laced nuns having to deal with the chaos typical of Takahashi works is also repeatedly PlayedForLaughs.

a boxing rival for Kosaku, and Kosaku considers Jesus a romantic rival for Angela (a misunderstanding not helped by nuns being called "Brides of Jesus" and the ritual for taking the veil resembling a marriage ceremony).

A manga and OVA series by Creator/RumikoTakahashi, ''One Pound Gospel'' is one of her shorter and less-known works, often overlooked in favor of the classic ''MaisonIkkoku''.

** The two leads resemble those of ''MaisonIkkoku'' quite uncannily. Kosaku is actually very similarly drawn, disregarding [[OnlySixFaces the rounded style Takahashi uses for her characters.]] Also, Taro Matsuzaka resembles Shun Mitaka when not wearing his 'work face'.

* BelligerentSexualTension: It would hardly be a RumikoTakahashi's series without it. Kosaku is an InnocentlyInsensitive UnluckyEverydude, very similar to Yusaku Godai, but Angela is less likely to explode than a traditional {{Tsundere}}. This is most likely her faith and training talking.

Most fans of Takahashi's work tend to overlook this charming entirely realistic (a rarity for the mangaka) comedy in favor of ''MaisonIkkoku'', which is both longer and contains stronger distinct personalities among its protagonists. Also, as boxing and the Christian faith is an integral part of the series, this isn't to everyone's taste. However, the result is a pleasing mix of near-shonen fights and the traditional romance, this time - another rarity - with an actual resolution to the couple's {{UST}}.
