Angelique (アンジェリーク, Anjerīku) is a Japanese media franchise based on the video game series. It is somewhat popular with overseas import gamers, who have started petitions in the hopes of English-translated releases of various games in the series.
A fair queen rules a Cosmos by balancing elemental forces with the help of nine Guardians, keeping the various planets in her domain stable and her people content. However, the powers of the Queen and the Guardians fade over time, and successors must be appointed. The protagonist is a 17-year-old girl named Angelique Limoges who has been chosen by the current Queen and her aide Dia as one of two candidates from the Royal Smallney Girls' Academy to become the next Queen.
Upon her final examination, each of the candidates is given a land to populate and whoever finishes populating their land first wins and becomes the next Queen. It is done with the help of nine Guardians who use their powers to make the people of the candidate's land happy, or to devastate their rival's lands. While the candidates can befriend or fall in love with the Guardians, they can live happily ever after, but it also means abdicating their chance to become Queen.
