Plot summary: (animenewsnetwork)
Niwa Daisuke is your average teenager, until his fourteenth birthday. He tries to declare his love to the girl of his dreams, but fails. Suddenly, whenever he thinks about this girl he turns into the legendary phantom thief known as Dark Mousy. Daisuke’s mother, very much aware of this, makes him turn into Dark and steal valuable works of art for a purpose unknown to Daisuke. As the story unfolds, he learns why, and about his classmate who seems to have the same ability.

I Say…

DNAngel is a shoujo anime with a male as the lead. As expected of shoujos they’re going to give you this giddy feeling while or after watching them. It’s really entertaining, and the 26-episode series will really make you want for more. It instantly turned into one of my favorites. (And this is an old one… jeez… where was I during the DNAngel fever was rampant?)
Niwa Daisuke is sooo cute! He is really kind to his mother and to everyone! From the beginning I’ve always thought he was extraordinary minus the fact that he’s turning into Dark Mousy! I think it was great that he ended up with Harada Riku instead of Harada Risa whom he originally liked and thought of as his Holy Maiden.
The story seemed a bit slow though (at least for me), because the explanation on why Dark lives in every Niwa male and the existence of the Hikari family was all told on the 25th episode only. And it kind of made me sad that Dark has to be sealed, even though the ending was happy enough (*sighs* ).
Oh, and I also love the BGMs… they really make me feel the characters’ emotions.
