Are they really the supreme children of God? Do they really exist? In this story by Shoko Hamada. You get a chance to see that "Angels" are not what religion depicts them to be. They are beings that exist in our everyday society, most hidden from fear of being discovered while others use the power of the media to their advantage. Meet Shea, a young quiet boy that lives a simple but happy life. Enjoys making clothing for his friends and little sister Pearl. But that soon changes with a ache in between his shoulder-blade, a protruding bump that seems to grow with every passing minute. When the media discovers his oddity he is taken in under the protection of the public welfare and discovers that there are others just like him. He soon meets "Angelaid," the hottest band in Tokyo. They're gorgeous, sexy and have WINGS!! Everyone on the street are wearing them, it's the hottest trend, or is there more than what meets the eye? This book gives science fiction a big plus, it reminded of "Clover" by the popular girls mangaka CLAMP. A must read for all science fiction fans.

Another amazing manga series that's been ignored in book stores.
I was pleasantly surprised that this series didn't cater to the typical young audience with just "pretty boys with wings" as its selling point.

Instead, this series takes on issues on discrimination, ways to overcome it, abuse, illness/extinction, and ultimately procreation.

Since this series is only 3 volumes long, you'd get to see Shea grow up & get to the point with each book. (which is pretty refreshing compared to other series that extends tention, conflict and drama by dragging their feet and keeping their characters ignorant/naive for an unrealistic amount of time).

I highly recommend this for those who are tired of the typical shoujo high school drama, love triangles, and magic power gimicks.

And have high hopes for Aurora Publishing and their choices for released titles with substance, rather than "eye candy".

I was first hooked by the title of the book, "Flock of Angels".
And apparently this is one of those rare treasure mangas.

The first book lays the grounds for the short running series. There is a raging fan base for a music group that call themselves "Angelaid". The actual intentions of this group are to help hide 'angels' in plain sight since nearly every young adult and teenager has purchases wing accessories and wear them freely out in the open. The 'angels' that are hiding in the open have a virus that causes the individual to grow wings. And these wings mature enough to become fully functional, letting them fly. To protect the 'angels' and help them understand what is happening to them among other concerns is a sort of MIB group. This group is the mastermind behind Angelaid.

Shea is the main protagonist. Immediately it is revealed that he has the virus, and the reader follows his development from awkward, anxious teenager to a well-informed and eventual icon for the viral status 'angelosis'. But it's not without hardships. He becomes the victim of a sick collector of 'angels' and must use hit wits to break free, comes face to face with animosity and discrimination, and is duped into 'performing' for a high class group of people. And in the background he is researching the very dark history of the angelosis virus.

It's definitely a very intriguing and unique approach to the existence of angels and worth the read.

Okay, so I was skeptical at first with another angel manga, but I was pleasantly surprised with this volume. I really got into the struggle of Shea having to deal with his new-found world-wide fame as being the spokesperson for bringing the news of the Angelosis virus, which is what makes the humans grow wings. It deals with different moral issues, but not so much in a cheesy, child-like way.
