A devil-girl with the face of an angel and a heart of gold, blond Betty falls in love with an earthbound gangster, Danpei Kimogawa, when they meet in a rainstorm. They end up living together in a Tokyo highrise apartment, though Danpei has trouble coping with his new witch and demon in-laws dropping in at inopportune moments. Betty has actually been sent to the human world on a mission to defeat the demon Lutan. While Betty continues her task, her skeletal grandmother sends nubile nymphs to tempt Danpei and see if he is suitable husband material.

It seems that the story is disjointed because they're trying to compress the manga into a 50 minute movie. There's no development of the characters and we can't understand their motivations at all. Why does Betty fall in love with the male lead and marry him within 3 minutes of their first meeting? Why does he immediately cheat on his "beloved" wife other than his being a stereotypical 80s dude? Even on the plot level nothing really makes sense. People are fighting each other because of... reasons?

This is interesting as a historical look at the art of its time, but not for anything else.

ok this anime is a complete mess were the characters are just fascinating enough that if done right there might be something there. with that said the time given while entertaining there is not much to the characters. the plot is a complete mess and less a plot and more a very messily told journey. the animation is average and really outside of the nudity there is nothing worth noting about it. really the main reason to watch this is for those looking for something so bad it is good. there were seven times i just stated what because of how rush ...
