Angel Tales is a variation on the popular formula of multiple magical babes pursuing an unlikely nerd. In this case, the nerd is Goro Mutsumi. As a mysterious fortune teller discerns, he's never had a girlfriend, has no job, and is two months behind on the rent. "The Goddess" dispatches multiple guardian angels to break his string of bad luck, all of whom are the spirits of pets he once owned: Kurumi (hamster), Ran (parakeet), Tsubasa (goldfish), Tamami (cat), Mika (rabbit), Nana (dog), Akane (fox), and Ayumi (turtle). (Goro apparently kept a small menagerie as a boy.) In their eagerness to repay his former kindness, the angels squabble over who gets to protect him. Goro's luck doesn't change, and a mysterious gray-haired man with supernatural powers begins stalking him. This featherweight comedy will appeal primarily to adolescent girls. (Rated 13 and older: minor risqué humor and cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

If you like the harem show dynamic, there are quite a few better choices.

I know there are a ton of anime out there having to do with a young guy who comes to live with a bevy of beautiful girls and women and all the comedic romantic entanglements and conflicts inherent in the situation. Well, I haven't seen any of them, so Angel Tales' isn't really as much of a retread of old material to me as it would be for fans of series such as Love Hina. I thought this first volume was very funny, at times touching, a tad too sweet at moments, and a little disturbing.

Goro Mutsumi is a young man trying to make it in the big city on his own. The problem is that the company he worked for went bankrupt, he can't even find a part-time job, he's had to beg for money from his parents, and besides that, he's never had a girlfriend before. Just when he's decided he can't take it anymore, a strange fortune-teller appears next to him on the street and tells him that his luck is finally going to change. He goes home not believing a word of it. When he gets out of the shower, to his amazement and shock, he finds three nice-looking young ladies in his house.

It turns out that the three are guardian angels sent down by a mysterious goddess (the fortune-teller?) to make Goro's life better . In another twist the angels were once pets and if they accomplish their mission, they will be allowed to return to their masters. There's Ran, who used to be a goldfish, Tsubasa the Parakeet, and Kurumi the Hamster. All of them have a phobia based on the manner in which they died. For example, Kurumi escaped from her cage as a hamster, and became lost and starved to death, so now, in human form, all she wants to do is gorge herself. It's actually kinda disturbing to know that all these spirits died a pretty horrible death as an animal, whether it was being shot, suffocation, etc.

Being an avid fan of anime, through the course of many years, I have always been willing to give a new series a go in the hopes of discovering something worthwhile. This was how I came upon Angel Tales. How can a series that includes little plushies with the first DVD box set be wrong? I did not see the storyline as following a harem theme, as these guardian angels that come to Goro, obstensively to improve his luck, come to the realization that in past life each was a loyal pet treated admirably ("sweetly") by him. Watching the opening four stories of the series for the first time with my two best friends, we found ourselves in cycles of smiling, awwwing, humming along, and shedding tears throughout. Tissues at the ready for anyone who wonders about what happens to those we love when parted at death or for those who have an appreciation of the bond between people and companion animals. I can't wait for Volume 2 --expected in August. Angel Tales is sweet, satisfying, and sentimental.

this review is basically for all 4 dvd's. the whole story is around the worlds most unlucky guy and how the animals he has lost in his life come back to help him. it can be a harem story line at times but most of the time it is just fun to watch them get in and out of trouble. the opening song is really nice and the art work is done well. the one thing that was VERY repeitive in the story was the harmonica playing. yes it did bring back memories for all the female characters but could he have known more than one song.

Angel Tales is yet another of a long line of anime harem shows being released in the US. (A harem show, for the uninitiated, brings one guy in proximity to a number of girls, all of whom have some kind of interest in him.) The quirk in this one is that all of the girls are the reincarnations (as angels) of various pets that main character Goro has had over the years. In one sense, it's no sillier than many of the other excuses these shows come up with to have girls piling into one guy's life, but it's almost disturbing, as these girls all retain memories of being animals, yet are interested in Goro.
Despite that one oddity, Angel Tales is simply harem show formula. It lacks the zaniness of a Love Hina or Happy Lesson, and the sweetness of an Ai Yori Aoshi. It just sort of is--not bad, not good, sometimes funny, sometimes not. The focus of the show seems to be bringing in new girls/pets--up to eight at the end of this disc, with more seemingly on the way. The show doesn't really do anything with any of these characters, beyond introduce them and identify their animal past. It is as if the whole show is on autopilot. Oddly, the English dub falls into this same trap--some of the better voice actors are in this, yet the show sounds like everyone just wanted to get in, read their lines, and get out.
It would be hard to recommend Angel Tales. While it's not bad, it's not much of anything. If you like the harem show dynamic, there are quite a few better choices.
