A Portrait of Jade by Justine Camacho-Tajonera

Jade Alverio is dying to get to summer art camp in Baguio, far away from her demanding parents and her ultra-perfect sister, Ruby. She thinks it will be a haven of likeminded spirits until she gets her first critique from Alexander Santamaria III, who seems to have converted all female camp members into his groupies.

Things get worse when she's paired up with him on a major project. Will she survive dream-turned-nightmare art camp, or will she go running back home, the very place she wanted to escape in the first place?

Excerpt:
“I’m the semiprecious stone in the family,” Jade thought as he climbed up into the bus. She was still affected by the car ride conversation she’d had with her dad, who had interrogated her on the courses she planned to take when she went to college.

Review:
I started watching this anime without any expectation, I was just bored at the time, but unexpectedly I was easily captured by it. The animation is wonderful, the soundtrack is truly great. All in all I really love D.N. Angel anime, I also love how it ends.

I've read that some fans mean that the manga is better than the anime version, but I haven't read the manga so I can't comment about it. But now I'm interested to know if they're right. Still, all I can say is that this is a great anime.
