At the turn of the 21st century, the Maou (Devil) figured out that Kami-sama (God) could be weakened by possessing the pure souls of humans through beautiful works of art in the human world. The beautiful souls of humans are the roots of Kami-sama's powers, and by possessing these souls, Maou would become stronger than Kami-sama.
The only person who can save the world is 16 year old high school student, Kusakabe Maron, who is the reincarnation of Jeanne D'Arc (Joan of Arc). Maron, who received Kami-sama's power in her former life, is able to seal the evil within the paintings and bring the possessed people back to normal. But what happens when she falls in love with the handsome and flirtatious Nagoya Chiaki, who turns out to be the devil's advocate, Kaitou Sinbad?
