There were also two sequels (Little Princess and Angel's Present), as well as a majhong and puzzle game, none of which have been [[NoExportForYou released outside of Japan]]. However, these games laid the groundwork for ''LaPucelle'' and, eventually, ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}''. GameFAQs translations of Little Princess and Angel's Present can be read [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps/576455-little-princess-maru-oukoku-no-ningyou-hime-2/faqs/43034 here]] and [[http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps2/580294-tenshi-no-present-marle-oukoku-monogatari/faqs/45630 here]]. Additionally, it gained a SpiritualSuccessor in the form of the Japan-only '' Princess Antiphona’s Hymn: Angel’s Score Op. A'' which includes a Marl Kingdom prince and Marjoly.

* MagicMisfire: Happens twice to Marjoly.
