Saint Beast: Kouin Jojishi Tenshi Tan 1: The Beginning (起源)

This prequel Of Saint Beast follows the life of six tenshi or angels, who are all pretty males.

One of these angels, is shown to train a bunch of youngsters. From here, things truly go downhill...

Another angel is shown to protect two brothers from bullying due to their half-breed. And yet another angel is shown to play around with cats.

The later part of the episode shows the angels spying on the human world, where a marriage ceremony is under way. Later on, the mirror that was used for this espionage activity, land the angel into a small trouble because he "borrowed" and forgot to return it. And that brings us to the end of the first episode. -_-

Opening theme: Divine Love by JAM Project featuring Hiroshi Kitadani
Ending theme: Kouin Jojishi Tenshi Tan ~ Ending Chronicles

As far as I can tell, the story mostly revolves around the daily of the main characters, and possibly lay the background for the old Saint Beast series. Unfortunately, their life does not seem to be interesting at all. If you like to watch the daily life of six pretty boys though, you might actually like this series :b
To put it mildly, this is a show that I have the least interest in watching out of the spring lineup that I have seen so far. Probably the only redeeming factor is the opening song, which I think is not too bad. From the opening, there might be some actions in future episodes, which should inject some badly needed excitement.

Still, there must be a point to the series that I am missing in a big way, since they did managed to obtain funding for this prequel. Surely the money is better spent to continue other better series...I want more Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou! ehmm....
Has anyone watch the original Saint Beast? What is the worst series you have seen from the spring lineup?
