Haha. There's a lot to explain. Starting with Koisuru Tenshi Angelique is probably what's causing you the most confusion since that takes place last in the timeline (excluding Neo Angelique). Angelique Etoile was the last game in the series to feature the regular cast.
Oh. I actually asked in a different thread that I created asking general questions about the anime and OVAs (maybe that I added the word List in the thread title made that hard to understand) about what order I should watch them in, and it was recommended that I watch Koisuru Tenshi Angelique first because it gives more of an overview of the contents of the game in anime form whereas the OVAs that came before it were more like continuations of the game and would require some prior knowledge. I didn't realize that Etoile is the last game. I actually thought Trois was, though looking at the list on the Wikipedia page, it very clearly says that Etoile was the fourth. (>.<)
In the games, Angelique Collet was never in a coma (just in the Koisuru anime), and it's only in the Etoile game that you have to recruit Guardians. Before that, it was the same set of characters already established Angelique Limoges's Guardians (Julious, Clavis, Randy, etc) in the Shinchou Universe.
Oooh, I see. It's her last name. I guess that makes sense since all of the queens have been named Angelique. So then, in Etoile, are the main love interests the new 9 Guardians or is it all 18 Guardians? XD
In Angelique Special 2, Angelique Collet and Rachel were chosen for an examination similar to the Queen examination that Angelique Limoges and Rosalia underwent in the first game. In this case, though, Angelique Collet was the ultimate winner and created the new Seijuu Universe or 'Sacred Beast Universe.' This is because during the examination she was assisting the Will of the Universe which took on the form of a cute, pink, little furry animal named Alphonsia. Alphonsia would tell her what the new universe was in need of, and she would ask the Limoges's Guardians to send Sacrea to it.
The Will of the Universe is different than the Spirit of the Sacrea monster thing that was ripping apart the Seijuu Universe in Koisuru Tenshi Angelique, right?
This video is the opening to Special 2. What you see happening is that pink orb descending (the Will of the Universe, Alphonsia), selecting Angelique Collet. After Queen Angelique Limoges tells everyone that they need to select a new queen for the other universe, you'll see a line-up of Victor, Sei-Lan, Timka, and Mel; they were first introduced in this game as instructors (and Mel as a fortune teller) to help guide Collet and Rachel toward becoming a proper queen as well as learning what the new universe would need in a leader.
Mel is really young...and kind of girly.... Is he really an obtainable character in this game? f(^^; ) That almost seems kind of creepy.... That's really neat though that the opening sequence is completely animated like that. (^_^) Are most of the cut scenes animated as well? And how much less was Etoile animated than the others? Was Neo Angelique animated as well?
