The music reminds me of when I used to play the old Kirby games Smile .

Other than that, this just looks like the usual lame-o kinda anime that just seems to totally flood every season.
Other than my being a tad shocked that the main chick doesn't have a huge chest, it really just looks like your usual and generic same old same old which will probably just turn into another harem show eventually... I don't know...

I could be wrong though, I mean, I don't know alot about the story itself. But even the animation looks meh.

The guy's supposed to be Satan... yeah.

But, it does say this won an award so- Maybe i'm just judging this way way too soon.
Though I'm not exactly sure just how big of an award that is (I totally know next to nothing about that kinda stuff)...
Perhaps I'm just a tad depressed that, imo, this Summer's season kinda sucked, and there's only a handful of ones worth watching this Fall...
These kinda shows are getting a little old Anime cry , and I used to be a huge fan of em'.

I think the premise is cute, it's the exact opposite of the old "boy gets sucked into fantasy world and ends up defeating the demon king"
premise.
Could be funny. Not expecting anything though.

Sounds like a typical chapter of Sunred, and that's good enough for me.

It's pretty humorous. The beginning is sort of like Coming to America with demon kings instead

I'm looking forward to this adaptation ever since I found out about the series a few months ago (the cover of a Dengeki magazine had Maou-sama on it with his fast-food outfit holding a burger and I was intrigued).

In the story, a demon king named Satan is one step away from conquering his alternate world when he is transported to Tokyo of our world. He ends up having to work part-time at a fast food restaurant to make ends meet. In order to conquer Japan, he has to first move up from a freelancer to an actual employee. Meanwhile, the heroine Emilia has arrived in Japan also, in pursuit of Satan.

Okay, that in NO way sounds like a light novel adapation. It sounds more like a pitch for an American tv sitcom or an Adult Swim cartoon! Laughing

Looking forward to the fast food setting. I don't think he is supposed to be THE Satan.

If others enjoy this, good for them. I'm happy for 'em. But as for me... I can't even summon the willpower to care, its harem-esque, forgettable as all holy hell premise just bulldozed over me. Rolling Eyes

It might turn out stupid but the promo art has 2 guys and 2 girls. I am not exactly getting "harem" from that.

This one is nice, but why with all these light novels getting animes Mahou Rettousei hasn't gotten one yet. I mean it already has two mangas out, not to mention it just seems like a nice change of pace from these mostly goofball series, which I do like by the way.

Premise looks interesting, but if LNs have taught me anything, it's that most of them have interesting premises and then fall straight in the abyss of gerenic harem stuff.

I'll still keep my out, though.
