In the preview, I already put this show in my anishit list. The kind of comedy portrayed in the synopsis is never really what I look for in anime. So I'm gonna watch this with that knowledge in mind and perhaps I will be biased towards this shit. I do hope that they managed to prove me wrong though just so that I can feel that joy of watching anime with good honest humor.

And guess what, it is rare that an animu can proved me wrong. This show however, did it. The start of the first episode already grabbed my attention with the blood and killing and what not. Then comes the characters who look so badass and then so normal few minutes later but the transition was smooth and was explained in quite satisfactory details that it suddenly made sense.
Maou and his servant Ashiya are demons. Maou is the Lord Satan. They were forced to retreat by Hero Emi and swear to seek revenge. When Maou opened the portal, it somewhat brought them to Japan and their badass personas were gone, replaced by human-like form. Well at least Maou looks like a delicious shouta so you won't hear me complaining about that XD
I like the fact that the show showed how they tried to get used to this world. The foreign language made me LOL and from then on, it was good all over.
Having said that, I'm not sure about Hero Emi just yet. I hope she won't ruined this show too much.
I am glad I decided to check out all the anime before dismissing it. It's when you enjoy a show that you have no hopes or expectations for that made all the difference.
This show is getting an upgrade. It is no longer in the anishit list.
