What the Hell is DNangel?

DN Angel is a manga (comic) created by Yukiru Sugisaki. So far there are ten volumes out, an anime, and it runs monthly in ASUKA. Just recently, English translated volumes have been published by Tokyopop. DN Angel is classified as shoujo (girl genre), but it's more of a combination of the two genres. There's not only romance and an emotional story line, but lots of action mixed in. Her artwork has a shounen (boy genre) look to it also.

The story starts off with a 14 year old boy named Daisuke Niwa. Today is his birthday and he finally has enough courage to tell the girl he likes about his feelings. Risa Harada, his crush, though doesn't harbor the same feelings towards him. She promptly tells him that she can't accept his feelings and wishes they could still be friends.

He returns home depressed and heartbroken because of what happened. To make matters worse, he transforms into another person's body. The transformation was triggered by thinking about Risa. Only after the transformation does his family tell them about the Niwa family legacy. This legacy is turning into the legendary phantom thief, Dark-Mousy on their fourteenth birthday. The only way to change back is to steal the St. Maiden's Tears statue, or so they claim. No only that, he finds out that his pet, With, isn't all what he seems. He's actually Dark's partner and serves as his wings.

When trying to get the statue, he meets up with Satoshi Hiwatari, a schoolmate who happens to be the commander in charge of getting Dark. Satoshi pins him to the ground with causes Daisuke to freak out from the prospect of getting caught. This causes a chain reaction which awaken Dark who takes control. They manage to steal the statue and get out unscathed.

Of course this isn't the end for Daisuke. His life only gets more complicated from then on...

Niwa Daisuke. 14 years old, attending Azumano NO.2 Junior High. A pretty normal kid, nice, hard-working, a bit shy around girls.... At least, Daisuke would like to have people believe he's just a normal kid. Even if he couldn't pick locks with a somewhat uneasy skillfulness, or leap over high fences and traverse the obstacle course that is his home, Daisuke would be far from normal. Of course, you probably already know that Daisuke turns into the famous Kaitou thief Dark anyway, so Daisuke's lack of normality is hardly surprising. His mom has been training him up ever since he was a little kid so that he would be ready to enherit that which is the Niwa family "curse" (If you could call turning into a dark-haired bishy with wings a 'curse'...)

But one of Daisuke's big problems is love. That and the fact that one blonde haired-bishy is trying to kill him. He confessed his feeling for Risa, only to get knocked back, and then find out that she's fallen head-over heels for his alter-ego Dark. To make things worse, he starts to like Risa's twin, Riku, and while she does return his feelings, she has less than amicable feelings toward Dark. Ehe, trying to convince her that he and Daisuke are the same person is going to prove a little difficult -_-;... But despite Daisuke's problems he always tries to put on a smile or a brave face, and for all his spiky red-headedness, he's not some hyper genki kid. He has problems and he tries to deal with them as best he can, while not falling into a angsty gloom of despair. In other words, Daisuke is one mature but cute kid~
