I want to protect my little sister (family).

Make them obedient to become stronger! An ecstasy battle action that goes beyond the critical point! Based on a light novel written by Tetsuto Uesu and illustrated by Nekosuke Okuma (Nitroplus), the series started publication in 2012 under the Kadokawa Sneaker Bunko label and has released 6 volumes to date. As the “ultimate desire-action that surpasses the limits of the light novel” filled with stylish and classic action, extremist ecstasy portrayals within the series became the talk of the town, and the novel has been comicalized in magazines “Monthly Shōnen Ace (art by Kashiwa Miyako, published by KADOKAWA's Kadokawa Shoten) and “Young Animal Arashi” (art by Fumihiro Kiso, published by Hakusensha). Currently, the total circulation of novels and comics put together is over 800,000. The trending power sees no end, and surpassing the realm of light novels and comics, it will finally turn into a TV anime series come January 2015!


“Hey – you said you wanted a little sister, right?” Basara Tojo panicked to the sudden query from his father. However, his unparalleled father declares getting remarried, and after bringing over two beautiful girls that were to be his stepsisters, he was gone in the wink of an eye to go work overseas. However, the true identities of the two girls Mio and Maria were the daughter and succubus for the previous devil lord!? Basara narrowly escapes from being forced to a contract as servant, but mistakenly creates a contract in reverse – where Basara becomes the master. On top of it, one sexual situation after another befalls Basara thanks to the contract. Meanwhile, Mio is in danger as other devils and the hero clan are after her life–!? An ecstasy battle action of the most powerful contract servant!
