Eniale and Dewiel are an angel and demon, respectively, who are often at odds with each other on borrowing one another’s makeup without asking, or gathering souls for their employers. In one of their apocalyptic fights, they find a baby and search for its mother using means that send humanity into a panic. After destroying their clothes in another fight, the two travel to Paris to replenish their wardrobe, and an exorcist discerns and chases after Dewi relentlessly. A little girl summons both the angel and demon to help her sick mother recover, and it’s a competition to see who can win the little girl over to “their side.” After Eni pisses her friend off completely, Dewi “helps” Eni build the “perfect” hot springs and vows to drain Eni’s seemingly endless supply of money.
There are quite a few fan service moments when the ladies try on clothes and they are frequently drawn with revealing tops, but that isn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be based on what I've read about the series. There is some slapstick comedy as Murphy’s Law wrecks havoc on the two ladies, especially if they’re trying to do something actually helpful. The stories are ever so slightly related but mostly seems to be following a bit of the slice-of-life trope.
The illustrations are extremely beautiful, as one might expect from Shirahama, the mangaka behind the extremely acclaimed Witch Hat Atelier, but, ultimately, the story is not supremely engaging or compelling.
