Angelic Layer #1, by Clamp, is the story of twelve-year-old Misaki Suzuhara. She has recently discovered a new sport, Angelic Layer, where players pit their angels against one another in a game of wit and strategy. Misaki is already captivated by the game, but she doesn't have the money or experience to build her own angel. So, with the help of a crazy scientist named Icchan, Misaki will give it all she's got to build a winning angel.
She's already showing incredible talent, but what will happen when Misaki goes against an Angelic Layer champion...who just happens to be a five-year-old? With Icchan and her school friends backing her 100%, can Misaki still win the Angelic Layer Crown?
This graphic novel was okay, but it wasn't as good as some of the other books I've read by Clamp. I don't think I'll be rushing out to get the next ones. Even though I was disappointed by this book, I'm not going to stop reading books by Clamp.
