Do you use those two words separately on the situation?
Is there a difference between a demon and a devil?
I didn’t wonder about them until my sister asked me when we were watching “Angels and Demons”.
Both of them are generally translated 悪魔(あくま)in Japanese.
I’d appreciate it if you could help me with this.

Well, I’ve told only my sister that I’m using this site and I can ask English native speakers about English.
She recently asks me about English casually, even though she isn’t interested in learning English at all.
I understand your explanations about my questions, but it isn’t easy for me to translate them into Japanese and explain to her in Japanese the way I understand in English.
