The trending power sees no end, and surpassing the realm of light novels and comics, the second TV anime series is set to start in October 2015!


"Let's begin. The battle that will decide the future of this underworld----"

Defeating Zorugia that came after the previous devil lord which Mio possesses, Basara and company seemingly regained a moment of respite. In getting ready for the school athletic festival with Mio and Yuki, Basara and the others enjoy the busy everyday life, but one day they are suddenly assaulted by humans that are controlled by magic...

To protect his family, to become stronger, Basara and company strengthen their master-servant contract in a more erotic, more passionate manner. But with Maria's older sister Lukia showing up before them, they become involved in a fight that shakes the entirety of the underworld...

There is a desire to protect dear family until the very end.

The battles and eroticism go beyond the critical point! An ecstasy battle action that breaks heaven and earth! The door to the underworld opens here!!
