Angel Sanctuary: Vol. 1 by Kaori Yuki

Setsuna is struggling with his life, his unreasonable temper and feelings for a girl who, although she is his blood sister, he rarely sees. He feels like he is a terrible person, but can't seem to change! It turns out that the problems may not all be his, as he is the reincarnation of an angel who defied God and was cast out. He is trapped in a battle of good and evil spanning lifetimes, but he can't tell which side he's suppose to be on.

The back of this book made it sound more like an examination of good and evil and the grey area most of us are in, however it is definitely a "battle of Good Vs. Evil" book. This is very typical of fantasy and an overly common plot. There really wasn't anything in the initial book that made it stand out. Even the art is very typical (might even go so far as to say unoriginal) for early 1990's manga. This style might be more eye-catching in today's market, as it is different then most newer manga.
