What a great series this turned out to be. Very funny, great characters (the Teddy Demons are definitely mascot of the year for me) and nice world building. I hope we get more animated in the future =D

They're using the same names as the Viz manga releases, so they may not have had much choice.


Except, apparently, the succubus character. In Japanese she’s Sakkyun. In the Funimation subs she’s Cubey. In Viz’s translation she’s... Bussy.


Sigh, I thought we had gotten past these name changes years ago.

All the demons tend to have "what I am" names so if you transfer Cubey's name directly... she's Succy/Sucky.

I choose to call call her Cubey. Bussy is just odd really.

That was a good series, I want more. I really can't say why I want more of it but I think it's the equivalent of anime hot chocolate. It's not soothing, it's warming. Nothing complicated about it but you know when you want it.

What a fun ride up until the very end.

I know the chances are very slim, but the Queen's "See you soon" got my hopes up for a second season. There's so much more material left to adapt! Here's hoping Japanese viewers did not sleep on this show, and that eventually it becomes a sleeper hit over here as well. Okay, I'll stop.Laughing

A buss is an archaic word for a kiss, which could be what Viz was going for.

It is also, unfortunately (spoilered for extremely NSFW) spoiler[a slurring of "boy pussy" and slang in the gay community for a receiving anus].

Note: mods, if this is too much, feel free to get rid of it

Oh, so THIS is why they skipped Poseidon and went for Succyun instead. They better make up for it if there's a S2. They would have to backtrack a couple dozen chapters though.

It took me a long time to realize it come from the "bus" in succubus.
It's already an unsafe demon species so might as well succ it up and keep the start. Or just leave it as Succyun since even in English it will make about as much sense as Cubey or... Bussy.

EDIT: oh lol at Bussy being actually more problematic than Succy would have been.

Interesting to learn that despite the fantasy setting, if what the shopping channel hosts said was true and not just marketing nonsense, then they've got more advanced tech than we have Laughing


The shopping channel hosts were named Flora and Bianco, with incredible resemblance to Flora and a male gender swapped version of Bianca, the hero's two bridal candidates in Dragon Quest V. That amused me, probably a very obvious joke to Japanese viewers.
