An online manga-styled comic created by Sean Boyle who both wrote and drew the comic stories. It deals with the story of an average set of high school Japanese students who get bonded to demonic beings who are being sought out by an alien race.Its basically about demons, angels, aliens, and more. Think Sailor Moon with more emphasis on the action, no filler or stock footage, and a gender-balance team.Click here to read
Armor-Piercing Slap: Naoko gives one to Ikkou when he tells her its none of her business what he does with his powers.
Art Evolution: From 1999 to 2003 Sean updated his art style so that it looks way more crisp and clean then before, in 2005 he started with full color pages every weekend or every so often and by 2008 full color pages were being done alot more.
Resigned to the Call: When Naoko is chosen to host Darkbolt, she's pretty much stuck with being a hero even though she doesn't really want it and steps up to the task.
Got Volunteered: Mariko and Yun. Both accept their role easier than Naoko does, though.
Jumped at the Call: Ikkou accidentally bonds to Destruction while trying to defend Naoko but later loves having powers and the chance to fight. Later zigged when he gives up his powers after realizing how out of control he is, and then zagged when becomes the host of Chaos.
Calling Your Attacks: DARK BEAM to WAR BLADE to the all infamous Demon Seal ...yes, everyone does it... except humans, who don't need to...
Crystal Dragon Jesus: The Holy Sanctuary, and generally any other faith aware of the Angels and Demons. Yun is a believer in its faith, and Mariko is sufficiently familiar with it to recognize a carving of the Angel of Order.
Gas Leak Coverup: One of Naoko's earliest fights is quickly claimed as a production stunt by several opportunistic film studios. However, the crown for this trope goes to the Genji Corporation's cover-up when a forty-foot tall image of the Angel of Order is seen over Tokyo:
"Credit for the 'hologram' has been claimed by the Angelic Imaging Division of the Genji Corporation."
God of Evil: Evil. The rest of the Demons also count albeit less literally.
The Mind Screw in "Elysium" between Lie, Ikkou, and Naoko and between Yun & Mariko.
Humans Are Special: The series opens with Yasha's plans to conquer the Earth, the only planet she hasn't conquered, now that the Angels no longer are around to protect the amazing power it contains. Despite prophecies which warn of doom for tampering with Earth, she moves ahead with her plans because of how powerless and disorganized humanity is. Turns out that humans are that power, and tampering with the Earth leads directly to the end of her reign. The true extent of humanity's latent power isn't revealed for nearly a decade, though.
Nose Bleed: All around for the guys after Shiori's "modeling" quasi-striptease at the school talent show. Bonus points for the twin gushers coming from the intended target and an Eye Twitch from one semi-intended other.
Obstructive Code of Conduct: Defied. The Time Elementals aren't supposed to act outside of their mission. That goes out the window quickly enough.
One-Winged Angel: Yasha/Evil in the Tenma arc, and (to a lesser but more literal extent) Genji in the Elysium arc.
Special mention goes to Chaos who was so dangerously powerful that the other sealed evils put him in his can first.
Shaggy Dog Story: A harsh reading of the "Elysium" arc. Satsuo had the power to stop Tatsuya all along. All waiting accomplished was to get Shiori killed. The heroes argue for to spare Tatsuya from aeons of torment for his crimes. This results in the Angel of Order turning her back on Earth. Tatsuya decides to take that punishment anyway.
Ship Sinking: When Ikkou kisses Naoko, thinking they may die. Naoko does not take it well, and it's the last straw for their friendship for a long time.
Speech Bubbles: The Demons and Angels typically have differently color speech bubbles and different fonts.
Stable Time Loop: How Naoko and Fushi met. Chou exists entirely within said loop.
The Starscream: Destruction, Evil, and so, so many Tenma to the point that some Starscreams have their own Starscreams.
