First Impressions – Hataraku Maou-Sama



Devil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As “conquering the world” are the only skills the Devil King possesses—and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation—he must work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses! (Source: MAL)


Maou Sadao is too good to be a Demon King.

The show started with the war happening in the Demon world. The animation is good and is such a treat to the eyes. It was action-packed until the Demon King and his underling, Alsiel, decided to leave and escape. Then, they arrived at the modern day Tokyo. This is where the fun starts. They tried to adapt in a world where magic is limited. The duo was so serious familiarizing with some stuffs. The fact that it didn’t make me laugh, like it supposed to do, should be a good reason for me to drop this one. However, from that point onwards, I can’t help but smile. It was entertaining and it didn’t bore me. Their reactions and actions are so appealing, being so serious and – good. They’re supposed to be demons/bad right? Giving umbrella to a girl, working earnestly, not accepting petty cash and stuffs like that… cute.

By the way, here’s my favorite scene. (Credits to the creator)

whatta face!

Then here comes Hero Emilia. She followed them to the modern world, for… We’ll know. But she can’t use much magic as well so let’s see what will happen between her and Maou Sadao.


First episode was entertaining at its own caliber. One of the shows that I’ll follow this season.

    Man, the prelude so freaking surprising. I was not expecting a backstory like that. However, it was okay for a first episode, but like you, it was not making me laugh as I was expecting. Worth keeping around for a few more episodes, though.

Have a cup of tea and let's discuss!
