Flying with Her Own Wings (Italian: Volare con le Properie Ali) is the first episode of the first season of the animated series, Angel's Friends. It was originally broadcasted in Italia 1 on October 12, 2009 and U.S.A. on September 27, 2010.
Raf had come of age and left Angie Town along with her childhood friend, Uri to be and reach on her own for the first time at the Golden School. She encountered her rival devil adversary, Sulfus and quickly tried to learn his weaknesses and strengths through a challenge. The challenge was necessary to find out which of them will first encounter their "earthly one". A guardian angel was responsible for guarding the soul of their "earthly one". When one made a mistake in judgment, the adversary won. Humans must always be aware of their own free will to choose between good and evil.
To decide which of the two had approached first, Andrew will compete in a surfing race, during which Sulfus pretended to be drowning. To save him, Raf took his hand and breaks the V.E.T.O., lost his balance and fell into the water below. This challenge was then won by Sulfus, who transforms into an Earthly One convinced Andrew to disobey his mother. Meanwhile, a mysterious hooded man and Reina's servant, Maliki haunted the school.
Raf discovered her powers one by one. She also learned the rules of transforming into a guardian angel as she worked to accomplish her goals. One major rule remained constant that adversaries should NOT touch. Unfortunately, Raf took his hand again, and we were to learn of her fate later in the series. Her "earthly one" was a selfish boy named Andrew. He was charged with caring for his baby sister. When he was tempted by Sulfus to play video games instead, Raf broke a rule, and failed in her first mission to protect Andrew from Sulfus' temptations.
Teaching that following all the rules of the game leads to success.
