Summary: Gabriel White Tenma, a honor student from Angel School, turns into a video game-obsessed hikikomori after she was sent down to Earth (which is required in order to become a fully-fledged angel).
As she lives life as an apathetic slob, she makes three friends: Vignette April Tsukinose, a kind demon; Raphiel Ainsworth Shiraha, Gabriel’s classmate from Angel School who has a sadistic streak a mile wide; and Satanichia McDowell Kurumizawa, a clumsy demon who’s terrible at being evil and basically acts like a full-blown chuunibyou.
This show is basically about four demons and angels failing to understand or care about what it means to be either demonic or angelic.
