Tenshi ni Narumon!

(Wanna be an Angel!)

Rating: 3½ Rampages the whole freaky family

One day, a student named Yuusuke runs into a girl named Noelle while offroading with his bike. Actually, fell on top of her would be a more appropriate description. Noelle, who's unbelievably hyperactive and has disturbingly wobbly cheeks, begins calling Yuusuke her husband and starts following him around; she even joins his class. Later that day, Yuusuke finds his house to be replaced with a new house..one that looks like Lina Inverse designed it. Noelle's family, which resembles The Munsters, has moved in as well (he used to live alone). It seems that this "husband" business was more serious than he first thought.

Just when things couldn't get any stranger for Yuusuke, even weirder people start showing up to kidnap Noelle. Yuusuke really wants to have a relationship with another girl named Natsumi, but she doesn't give him the time of day. Even after expressing his affection and comparing Natsumi to an angel, she still brushes him off. Upon hearing this, Noelle decides she will become Yuusuke's angel, even though she has no idea what an angel really is.

Thus, Noelle begins her quest to become an angel and be together with Yuusuke. Although constantly told by many people that she can't have both, she continues to strive for this goal.

GAAAH!  DON'T POINT THOSE THINGS AT ME! Iiiiitai. Our dear friend Ruckus recommended this title to the Elf and I, and despite the frightfully cute pictures I'd spotted of it on some pages and CD covers, I decided to sit down and watch a few episodes. Now...I'm not even sure words can describe the sheer off-the-wall insanity of this show, but I will say that this is probably the WORST thing you could possibly use to introduce someone to anime, short of "That show whose name shall not be spoken" as it would likely leave the poor newbies twitching on the floor from Noelle induced seizures, or huddled in a fetal position mumbling things about cheeks made of Jell-O and rice-steamer robots. As it stands this is one of the most bizarre shows I have ever seen; kind of a cross between Tenchi Muyo, Samurai Pizza Cats and the Munsters (if you can even imagine such things being put together...). After watching the first episodes, I have really no idea what the hell is going on other than the horribly freakish Dispell-sama (the sight of whom causes just about everyone in the room to avert their eyes, cringe, and whimper like a frightened child to make the bad man go away) wants Noelle for his collection because she is imperfect...I think. Oh, and Yuusuke really, REALLY wishes he could find some way to get the hell away from the bizarre people that keep finding their way into his life...can't say I'd blame him. Apparently the show starts to develop something vaguely resembling a coherent plot around episode 10, so I guess I'll have to wait a tape or two to figure out what the hell is goin on in this seriously fucked up show. Like Fairy Princess Ren before it, this show really doesn't make much sense, but is still entertaining if senseless, zany and outright insane antics are your thing (it has recently been brought to my attention that senseless, zany and outright insane antics are NOT everyone's cup of tea. You people are advised to leave the page immediately, douse yourselves in Honey, and go rob a bank. Trust me, you'll get away with it.

Herself the Elf sez: At first sight this show is almost too scary to deal with, but once you get over the seizures it's lots of fun. There are even a couple bishounen for those who don't want to look at Noelle...^_^
