Seven Seas Entertainment announced on Thursday that it has licensed Naoto Fukuda's How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord (Isekai Maō to Shōkan Shōjo no Dorei Majutsu) manga. The first volume is slated for print and digital release on March 13.
Seven Seas describes the story:
An elite but socially-stunted gamer finds himself in another world, inhabiting the body of his character Diablo. But despite his powers, his awkwardness keeps getting in the way–so he decides to pretend to be a Demon Lord and soon finds himself with a pair of slaves: a well-endowed elf and a cat girl. Together, they struggle with everything from interpersonal relationships to diabolical beast battles!
The manga is based on Yukiya Murasaki's light novel series. Kodansha published the first novel with illustrations by Takahiro Tsurusaki in December 2014 and the eighth volume on August 2. Fukuda launched the manga adaptation on Kodansha's Suiyōbi no Sirius (Wednesday Sirius) section on the Niconico service in June 2015. The manga's fifth compiled volume shipped in Japan on August 9.
