"Angel Sword" is all about dark shoujo manga Angel Sanctuary 天使禁猟区 (tenshi kinryôku), published in Japan between 1995 and 2001. It's been written and drawn by the prolific Kaori Yuki. The prepublication began in July 1994 in the magazine Hana to Yume #15. The manga was adapted in 2001 in a short OVA of 3 episodes which follows story of the 4 first volumes only, and contains a notably superb ethereal OST. Blending Western cultural references and Japanese trends of the 1990s, this story of epic dimension takes us in a race without rest to save the loved one, foiling madness, manipulations and the fall of angels. The story is served by characters with a deep psychology, and by a very fine, delicate and detailed graphic style.
In France, Angel Sanctuary has been published between May 2000 and July 2003 by Tonkam. The series even got its Deluxe edition in 10 volumes in 2007 with a different translation; finally, starting from January 2014 (around the same time as the merging between the two French publishers Tonkam and Delcourt), a new edition in 20 volumes with new covers was published and uses the latest improved translation of the previous standard edition in 20 volumes.
