Summary

The manga follows the adventures of Angel, an actual angel with the mission of helping people with her special abilities. She travels with her special suitcase in search of people who are suffering a problem: youngs who can't deal with real people, men who have a real lolita complex, people that have lost their will to live, criminals that may be saved, sportsmen who have lost their touch, monks that have perverted their teachings, women who have been mistreated, etc. But those who have acted with a true evil intent may receive the visit of Black Angel, the dark counter-part of Angel who delivers divine punishment just as Angel brings true happiness.
