During my first trip to Japan, I would frequent many video game shops and I remember one title that I saw plenty of and that was "Angelique".

At the time, I didn't know anything about the series and when I looked online when I arrived back in the US, there was not much information (in English) about the series. But over a decade later, the Angelique franchise has since grown and even attracted video game fans worldwide.

"Angelique" a dating sim which has appeared on various consoles since its first appearance on the Super Famicom back in 1994 and most recently the game "Angelique Duet" on the Nintendo DS in 2006. In April 2008, the series received a reboot with a new storyline and new characters and aired on television with the title "Neo Angelique ~Abyss~" and aired on TV Tokyo for two seasons. The first season has been released in the US courtes of Sentai Filmworks.

"Neo Angelique ~Abyss~" is directed by Shin Katagai (who has worked as episode directo for "Eyeshield 21'), series composition by Yuka Yamada ("Mushi-Shi", "Himawari!", "Saint October" and "Harukanaru Toki no Naka de ~Maihitoyo~" movie). Original character designs are by the original "Angelique" manga and TV series Kairi Yura and character designs by Maki Fujioka ("Itazura na Kiss", "Corda D'Oro") and anime production by Yumeta Company ("Angelique" OVA series and known for their inbetween animation work for many popular anime series in Japan inc. "Fullmetal Alchmeist", "Eureka Seven", "Gurren Lagann", "XxxHOLIC" and many more titles).

For "Neo Angelique Abyss", the story takes place in the world of Arcadia.

While I haven't watched the anime series to the end, I found it quite adorable. It starts out that, Angelique after suffering a tragedy of her own, at a young age, is at an all girls boarding school. She is called into the office where she meets the handsome and rich Nyx, who asks her to join him and purge the evil from their lands with her 'ability' calling her the Queen's egg, after reading an article about her miraculous healing ability, with a patient. At first she denies her abilities, but soon comes to terms that it is her duty to protect/save/help those in need.
After an attack, where she uses her ability against the evil Thanatos creatures, she joins the band of purifiers, and decides to do what she can to save Arcadia from their attacks. So starts their adventures into saving those without abilities. During their adventures they meet and gain other allies against the Thanatos, making new friends along the way.
A very cute anime about making friends, standing up for what's right, and finding the strength within to do what needs to be done, and coming of age.

I love this for well developed characters that grow and change, switching their beliefs around as they all come to rely one each other. These twists just go on and on right through to the ending which did feel a little abrupt. It is unfortunate that there will probably not be anymore with these characters.

Hard to get me to watch action anime, and while rough in places, this one stole my heart.

That Amazon.com has this with original soundtrack and all the voices music and song go together with each character's personality so well just takes it over the top for me. Poor english dub this is not! A rare find at amazon. Kudos!

Good animation and Japanese voice acting. The development of the characters and revelations are good too. But I couldn't quite get into this one. It's a harem anime with a woman surrounded by men. I usually like these, as they're much stronger than the male-centered versions. But this one really seems made to satisfy a female audience, so it's a bit off putting. The designs of the males is a bit too glamorous, the dialogue is a bit too baroque. I am glad that animation like this gets made, but getting through it can be rough.

No experience with the video games nor anime, but taking a look now that we have a ROKU. I suspect that if you watch enough anime, it'd get pretty hard to differentiate characters since everyone seems to be using the same template for the most part. I'm assuming it has more to do with production costs than talent and creativity on the part of the artists.

About the series, though, I was truly surprised by the quality of the writing. I didn't expect to find so many layers and so much "philosophical" depth. For example, considering its complex origins, "Erbos" is especially interesting; not just a "rogue entity", but the result of human beings' propensity to thoughtlessly "demonize" others. Considering Erbos' feminine nature and histories of protective intent, perhaps the initial response to a child's pleas for help was more than just an evil thing looking for a residence?

To cut to the chase, I truly enjoyed watching the series.

For Amazon Instant Videos: It would be nice if you could upload the full season to your watchlist, rather than having to hunt down individual episodes that are out of order and mixed in amongst other videos. It appears that this is the case with a lot of TV Series listings.
