'''''Flower Angel''''' is an English adaptation of the 1979 Magical Girl anime ''Lunlun the Flower Child ''(花の子ルンルン, ''Hana no Ko Runrun''), produced by Harmony Gold in 1985. It was compressed into a movie for TV and covered 6 of the original 50-episode series. The episodes that were featured in the film were episodes 1, 7, 24, 29, 49 and 50. The 37th episode was also covered, but it was only the intro to coincide with the beginning events of the 49th episode. The 95 minute compressed film was licensed by Ziv International, whom did an [[Angel (partially found Ziv International English dub of "Lunlun the Flower Child" anime series; 1980)|earlier English dub]] in 1980, and received a new music score by Mark Mercury under the name The Bullets. <ref>http://www.markmercury.com/composer/credits.html</ref> In 1987, the dubbed movie was released on VHS in the UK by Kids Cartoon Collection and two years later by InterVision Video under their PlayTime banner. <ref>http://www.retrojunk.com/content/child/trailer/page/41932/intersound-incintervision-video/2#/content/child/trailer/9770/show</ref>
Along with the new score, the dub received a new voice cast differing the original Ziv dub and the characters were renamed to Angel (Lunlun), Lily (Cateau), Periwinkle (Nuveau), Princess Wysteria (Togenishia), Ragweed (Yabouki) and Stefan (Serge Flora). The biggest difference between the dub and the Japanese original is with the ending of the 50th episode. In the dub, Angel goes to Lumia where she learns she is to marry the prince. The King relents and lets her return to Earth to her family and Stefan. In the Japanese dub, the King passes the crown to his youngest son, Stefan's brother. <ref>http://central.gutenberg.org/articles/eng/hana_no_ko_lunlun</ref>
