On a trip to the library with her mother, she manages to accidently liberate a handsome young magenta haired demon by the name of Set from an old book in which he had been sealed, and as a thankyou he decides to do something for her - whatever she wishes....

I figured since there isn't a review for this yet, I'd just whip one up.

Angel's Coffin is, to sum up in a word: ridiculous. Not because of craziness, but because the plot and characters are so hackneyed and dull placed in a rough "historical" setting.

I feel that the plot fell flat. There was so much more that could have happened. Marie a baroness falls in love with Prince Rudolph. Marie is a goofy, cheerful, blundering character.

One day she manages to set free a god who has been imprisoned within a book. Seto the god who is released, ends up being released as a demon, under the control of Baphomet. Baphomet's only command is that he needs to read more
