Yep, those tattoos indicate rank! XD
So, Reiji is basically a mid-level Archangel :3
we'll get to meet others...but I don't think they'll be as nice as Reiji! O_O;

@HanaHime: Taisuke has no rank! >_>;
He's not an archangel so is just a "grunt" as far as status goes ._.;
But that doesn't mean he can't be useful in other situations! XD
Thank you so much for supporting this manga!!
I hope you will continue to read it in the future!!

@PoynterJones: That is what they mean, yup!! XD
Glad you like the idea!! :D
Though, I'd hardly call it clever >_>;;

Yeah, it really was quite foreboding!! O_O
the others...aren't over their prejudice like Reiji is ._.;
So, I don't think they will be a pleasant bunch at all if they ever run into Hiro! >_<;

@snow crystal: Wah! O_O
So many questions!! >_<;;
Well, I'm not going to go much in depth during the story so I'll just answer you here!! XD
Tattoos are always under the eyes and done as dots in rows, makes it easier to be absolutely sure of an archangel's rank that way and that it's not just a regular tattoo.
To become an archangel you have to show your capabilities in combat, strategy, and loyalty to heaven. You are reviewed by a council of four High-Angels who determine if you are worthy. Once you are an archangel, rank one, you move up in rank by having a supervisor recognize your improvement and they will recommend you to the council for a promotion.
While the family you are born into can have a pretty big influence, those who are already archangels can easily try and persuade the council to consider their offspring, blood-ties have no direct and resolute effect in the outcome of the council's decision.
The tattoos are given by the council members themselves and it is a law that no other is allowed to distribute the designs.
(kinda like how in China no one was allowed to wear yellow except the emperor)

We won't get to hear much about HIro's dad for quite some time! XD
Right now though, he is sick and so sent Ryo to bring Hiro back to hell :3
He does care, but he is preoccupied at the moment because hell is very chaotic at the moment (we'll learn more about this later)
So he does care, which is why he sent Ryo, but he can't do anything at the moment :P

phew, lots of text!! XD

@JayRayne: Two more ranks is still quite a hard thing to reach!! XD
But, glad he's at least a little badass :D

Oooooohh... So THAT is what they mean?
That's very good.. I like that!
Such a clever idea :D

And I don't like the sound of meeting others... That sounds a little ominous the way that you're saying that you don't think they're going to be as nice... ;_;

Oh okay, so it was that. Well there are still a lot of questions popping up, for example if all the tattoos are at this place under the eyes or if you can choose the place or if it's chosen for you - and if that was the case, does the place of those tattoos have a meaning as well? That would be interesting.
And how can one get those dots? By doing angelic things, like rescuing someone or being kind to someone you don't like or something? Or is it by fighting with demons (that would be pretty interesting especially in Reiji's case)?
And, yeah. Does it have anything to do with in which family you're born? And do the signs always look like dots, and are they always drawn in a row, or are there other constellations, and do these constellations have a meaning? Oh and does the size of the dots mean anything? And who does the tattoos? Is it a job you can learn or are there "special" Angels that do it? And who decides when you get more of them? and do you have to listen?

Oh, and I wanted to ask you if you could write a bit more about Hiro's dad and the causes of his actions or why he doesn't act. I'm wondering because it seems like he totally doesn't care if his successor (is Hiro his only child???) comes back to hell or not.

Alright, so he's somewhat badass. Two more ranks and he'll be top rank badass :)
