Basic Description: Krad is a character in the anime/manga series ‘D.N. Angel’. He is considered a villan to most, but others can see him as a very complex character and not so much a villan. He is to Satoshi Hiwatari, what Dark Mousy is to Niwa Daisuke. Though there is a big difference between the two relationships.

Krad is a very complex character, in my opinion. The way i see it, is that he is insecure with himself and his relationships with others. This is probably why he is so possessive over Satoshi. I think Krad just wants to live a normal life. Even though it would probably never happen.

Anime/Manga Differences: The first thing you notice if you have read the manga and watched the anime, is that Krad is not nearly as insane in the manga as he is in the anime. He is fracking nuts in the anime. Nuts as in needs-a-LOT-of-therapy. Krad could be considered less violent in the manga, depending on how you look at it. In the anime, as soon as he is released from Satoshi he charges at Daisuke or Dark, swinging swords around or trying to blow shit up. While in the manga Krad takes on a much more subtle method of attacks and even is released at one point and shows no violence whatsoever.
