Review:
Zeus has a problem, whenever he uses his divine power to charm angels in heaven to have sex with him, Hera finds out and all hell breaks loose. He’s not a man to go without his sex though, and an examination taking place on Earth is about to afford him a splendid opportunity. Three angels are heading down to help out as many humans as they can over a three month period, all without using any of their magical powers. Little do they know, not only will evil forces working for Hades be watching their every move and working against them, but Zeus has decided to get as much sex as he possibly can out of them. His plan is to take over the body of men when there’s an opportunity for mischief, but as fate would have it one poor man keeps getting continually taken over, screwing him out of actually getting to experience any of the sex his body has. You can’t help but feel sorry for the guy…
 
The first thing you’ll notice about Angelium is the striking background designs of palace interiors and Greek-style buildings, something quite rare for a hentai title. This is just a taste of the quality to come as we are introduced to some very interesting and solid looking characters with surprisingly fluid animation to back it all up. So as this feast for the eyes continues we follow three angels who’re on a quest to help the people of the human world with all their various problems. Hesperis, Euproshne and Aurora first arrive at a flower shop that’s under attack by a pair of street thugs who’re trying to get its poor owner to give up her business. Needless to say, our three heroines don’t take too kindly to their strong-arm, flower smashing tactics and quickly show them what for. They decide to stick around for a short time to help her out with the store while their generosity scores them a place to live for the time being. After establishing a base of operations they each assume various little jobs, with Hesperis putting on a play for children, Euproshne giving swim lessons, and Aurora helping out the flower girl with running her store. While Aurora just has to put up with holding off those gangsters, in all probability a byproduct of her being rather loli and thus not involved in hardly any of the sex scenes, the other two have quite the special encounters as events unfold. 
 
The foremost of which happens at the pool where Euproshne is teaching. She’s working with Yorishiro, one of the part-time instructors who happened to deliver a package to the flower shop the day before. After sneaking a peak at a nipple slip of hers, Yorishiro practically drowns himself as he tries to cover up his inability to control his lower expansion. After they get themselves out of the water Euproshne notices his excited disposition, a situation which she’s prepared to remedy. This situation plays right into the hands of Zeus, who promptly takes over Yorishiro’s body and enjoys her feminine wiles for himself. That’s only the start for this luckiest of unlucky guys as he subsequently visits Hesperis after she’s done with her play and again gets taken over by Zeus as he goes all the way with her. The guy just can’t catch a break, but Zeus is willing to throw him a bone. After a sex demon shows up in the middle of their fun Zeus promptly flees leaving Hesperis and Yorishiro to battle it on their own… what a guy! The demon beast is one of Hades’ monstrosities presently being used by Persephone, a sexy demon whose been ordered to disrupt whatever the angels try and do. She’s a little nymph who’s quite interested in having a little sex while she spends her time on the human plane, although her plans always seem to get interrupted by the angels she’s working against. As the OVA continues they carry on with their little side jobs, including a sexy swimsuit raffle and a shrine maiden job, as Persephone not only tries to screw up their plans, but Yorishiro as well.

The culmination of which leads to the greatest crime perpetrated by Angelium, the sex scenes are not only few and far between, but they’re incredibly short to boot! These highly detailed, well animated scenes only happen a couple times each episode and only last for a minute or two. It’s such a shame that a title that could have been comparable to such stalwarts as Another Lady Innocent and Bible Black has to fail in the one area a hentai title shouldn’t. That’s not to say the scenes are bad in any way, because they surely aren’t. The little we do get are great, even throwing in a bit of tentacle play for good measure, which is why their being so short brings a tear to one’s eye. That’s the only reason the sex rating is so low, otherwise one can only imagine where it may have ended up.

With a comedic and lighthearted energy to it, Angelium is as fun to watch as the wonderful sex scenes, even if they are too short and infrequent for a hentai title. Its life was cut down before its time, ending before any sort of actual conclusion, but you shouldn’t let that keep you from watching it. The little we do have shouldn’t be missed.

Miscellaneous:
Persephone knows the proper way to give a blow job, with your pinky extended out. What a classy girl!
 
Run from the English dub as fast as you can.
