Japan still trying its hardest to go over the longest title for a Light Novel...I'm personally no fan of all those "Ore" titles, I prefer something short/concise rather than a whole sentence...but I guess it's the trend at the moment. As long as the contents is good, I can go with a nickname like Oreshura, Oreimo, Haganai, etc...
Anyway, I hadn't heard about this LN, but the synopsis looks stupid enough (in a good way) to get some laugh, so why not. And since it seems to be already up to its 5th volume there is far than enough materials for a anime adaptation. Furthermore having already quite a number a volume can speak (if only a little) about some qualities (considering the tons of LN that are published these days, I would tend to think only rather interesting ones can still continue...or so I hope)

Pretty soon, the book's cover will be wholly filled with a paragraph! Laughing

The titles are getting so long you can't even fit them in the Forum Topic titles.

Wasn't there already a light novel-adapted anime with a long-ass title like this getting made? Something about a demon lord working at a fast food joint?

That is just your imagination. There is no such trend. Nope! None!

I like demon girls too, but I get the impression that Japan just likes girls being called maou more than them being actually demonic, because I just went trough more light novels with maou in their title than is healthy, and I found only one cover where the titular female maou has horns and one where she has slit pupils. Otherwise these girls of supposedly demonic origin don't differ from other light novel heroines in their looks.

Okay, I had to use google translator just to get some idea of what the titles were. Some I had noticed were already adapted into an anime but one of the titles (and it may have just been poorly. I don't know and I DO NOT care what the accurate translations are) translated to, "Satan does not Pay the Rent"...............................................LaughingLaughingLaughing What da f*** is with these light novel stories?!!

It's like Hollywood. When one studio adapts a theme, everybody else goes, "Shoot! I gotta do that too!" (Like Sleeping Beauty.) Laughing
