Discussion topic for what's probably the only good tournament anime out there.

Feel free to talk about anything related to the anime or manga.

On an ephemeral evening, I tell a story to my friend.

Reflected behind my closed eyelids is a sweet field. Dauntless, I embrace you lovingly. I am together with you.

Out of love, I forge a pact with you. Like a breath, the wind will envelop you. You and I will be together wherever we go.

The heart of red will be enfolded in wind and forge the contract.

Angelic Layer fell into one of those rare categories for me in enjoying the anime series MUCH better than the manga. Story aspect was different, especially the ending which the anime's version to me made more sense. I'll explain more via spoilers in later pots.

The Manga and Anime were both good, but the Manga got confusing since in the manga they changed Suzuhara's age and grade.

But other than that; the tournaments weren't that bad though I would've preferred more fighting. Though the annoying squid is another matter entirely :P

IIRC the anime came out while the manga was still being written, thus the inconsistancies between the two, especially toward the end of the series.

Can anyone verify this?

Well.

In the anime, Misaki found out about her mother when she bellowed that out just before the last match - which promptly freaked Misaki out.

In the manga, Misaki out out about her mother after the match was over (and she lost) and ran her mother down, claiming she knew it was her all along because 'she's her daughter'

And we have the couple thing. In the manga it was Misaki and Kotarou while in the anime it goes towards Misaki X Ojirou and Kotarou ended up with Tamayo.

I love Angelic Layer, it;s one of CLAMPs most funniest Amine's. I mean who cannot laugh at Icchan's actions?
I kinda think the Misaki x Kotaru couple is kinda cute
Do NOT under estimate the powers of strawberries

For us who collect and read the U.S. version of Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle and don't look ahead at the scanlations (like me!) I was surprised to see Hikaru in Book #20. Though I always was kind of underwhelmed at CLAMP's style of art in much of TRC, I have to admit they drew Hikaru pretty good in her (its?) attacks against Syaoran. Nice homage to Angelic Layer :)
