(愛天使伝説ウェディング・ピーチ, Ai Tenshi Densetsu Wedingu Pīchi
?, literally "Legend of the Angel of Love: Wedding Peach") is a shōjo manga by Nao Yazawa and Sukehiro Tomita that was originally serialized in Shogakukan's Ciao
magazine. In North America it is translated and published by VIZ Media in its entirety, comprising six volumes.
The manga later was adapted into an anime television series that was directed by Kunihiko Yuyama and ran for 51 episodes on TV Tokyo from April 5, 1995 to March 27, 1996 and spawned a 4-episode OVA sequel (Wedding Peach DX
) in 1996.
The anime (which is co-produced by KSS, TV Tokyo and NAS) is licensed for distribution in North America by ADV Films, and they have released both the TV series and OVA series onto a total of ten DVD volumes.
In 2004, Wedding Peach: Young Love
was released, a compilation of Wedding Peach stories made specifically for the monthly magazine Shogaku Sannensei
("Elementary School Third-grader"). To better fit the magazine's target audience, the "Young Love" version of Wedding Peach features younger-looking characters, less complex storylines, and simpler dialogue.
