Daisuke is separated from Dark in a strange world; Krad battles with Satoshi for control. If Krad get controls, then heíll almost certainly go after Dark. Is this confrontation is really the result of fate? Or is someone manipulating events from the shadows.
Volume Seven is the final volume of DNAngel, which means the three episodes on this disc are story rather than filler. The speed of the story slows right down, as Daisuke deals with the impact of the world of the 2nd hand of time. Though itís nice to see Daisuke really contemplate his situation, itís a little frustrating to see him mope around when events are moving around him.

Whatís also nice is that a lot of plot points which have been hanging over characters are resolved, as several get clued in as to whatís been going on, whatís especially nice is their reaction evoking Ďthe warm and fuzziesí. Special mention probably has to go to the character of Mio Hio who was added to the anime version; this disc really finds use for her character involving the twins far more into the story.

This DVD like much of the series talks much about relationships especially family and friendship. Though it manages not to lecture but rather create a strong and exciting story, using the relationships to drive the story. Thereís also a sweet message about the relationship between an artist and their work, a theme at the heart of the story. The animation on this volume is superb, there are some absolutely love compositions aided strongly by the series top quality music.

DNAngel has a firm ending if a little predictable, it still manages to be hugely rewarding. The ending scene will tug at the heart strings so much, that even the most hardened fan will enjoy it. The only down side was that the show how to end at all, but rest assured that it does it with style.

The extras continue to be strong with the final part of the production documentary " 3D Scene Production", a live musical performance that uses the music videos from a pervious volume as background, as well as commentary from Greg Ayers and Illich Guardiola.

The whole series is hugely enjoyable, itís nice to sit down and watch such a sweet show. Much like Pretear I heartily recommend sitting down and watching with a bucket of ice cream. Whilst a little girly for some, this series exudes such charm that it has wide appeal and can be enjoyed by a vast array of people, and would make the perfect series with which to introduce fans to anime as well as an enjoyable experience for veteran fans.

Rating: 8/10
