SynopsisDevil King Sadao is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As "conquering the world" are the only skills the Devil King possesses—and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation—he must work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses!

Characters & Voice Actors
This tale is one of a tyrant whose palm holds,
The malignant fury of gods olde,
He was struck from his throne,
And pays bills for his phone,
Now he works full time at MgRonald’s.
But the tyrant he has a great wife,
Who does laundry and is good with a knife,
He does dishes and chores,
And scrubs all the floors,
(But was Demon General: Ashiya in his past life).
Then hence came the hero named Emi,
Who wanted to kill the tyrant; her enemy,
But love played her a fool,
Now she’s under his rule,
So she stalks him in hopes for the D.
Now sit down and pour a cold scotch,
We’re gonna kick it up one more notch,
Because these birds of a feather,
Call even more queers together,
And god DAMN is it well worth the watch.
Erh-em... holy crap, you will laugh your ass off while watching Hataraku Maou-sama! I want to start off by saying that these series are one of the best for outburst laughs, and they do the job for just-that extremely well. From the sadistic jokes, to embarrassing moments, you cannot help but crack up - well, I sure did.
The whole scene is set up really oddly for us to enjoy: The all-powerful Demon Lord gets defeated by the Hero in his home world of Ente Isla, making him and his Demon General, Alsiel, fall back and escape to Earth through the Gate, promising that they will return to rule Ente Isla once again.
After all the action and seriousness is gone, bang! The fun starts.
The thing is that the whole setting of the Demon Lord trying to get used to the modern life in Japan and getting a job isn't what makes the show so grand. Of course, it does set up the points to work on, but what really brings the excitement and fun are each separate scenes. Clumsy, embarrassing, dumb, sadistic, sarcastic, cute and idiotic as they are.
Getting a place to live in and survive, no, not without anything to laugh at. Being followed by the Hero to the Earth and trying to settle things there once and for all, no, not without anything that couldn't make you crack. Betrayed and attacked by their comrades, no, not without anything that wouldn't make you laugh your ass off.
On short, these series are really worth watching just because of the comedy already, but let us take a look at other parts as well.
The story is there basically to set the comedy in action. However, I've always liked the overpowered becoming totally weak but still owning in their new position, so I can say that the story is light and easy-going, but nice. The characters are amazing. They all have quite straightforward personalities and it is really fun to see how they want to adapt to their new life that is not filled with only them being the top and being the leaders all over. I'll say it this way, it is extremely hard not to love them and sympathize with them on every wicked and stupid move they make.
The art is really good and attractive. The way the terrain and the characters are displayed is amazing and seeing more series with such art would be great. The sound is really necessary at some scenes to add extra effect of fun, especially from the Demon Lord's side, and it is done extremely well. You can feel the anger, jealousness, boredom, or simply how one is annoyed through the series.
Enjoyment is... fully over 10/10! Sadly, that is not an option, but I really enjoyed watching Hataraku Maou-sama!, being the series that made my days so much better. What can I say, I like to have a good laugh on every so, and I just couldn't resist while watching this awesomeness.
Overall, I guess these series make you really healthy. I mean, laugh is half of the health already, they say, and if you won't die because of going too hardcore, it will just help you. Extremely advised series if you are a fan of Comedy as a genre in general. read more
both main leads are very powerful demons
both are your typical shounen leads they're even voiced by the same seiyuu
the comedy is kinda and overall setting is kinda similar
in both, there is a small romantic subplot that doesn't really go anywhere ..
Both anime's main character is the leader of a world or territory that has tons of followers. and they love japan; the genres of these animes are very alike and the female lead develops feelings for the male lead little by little.
In both series, there is a main male protagonist who seems to playing the role of a leader/ruler. However, they come in contact with something new and unexpected.
There is a lot of comedy in both series. Despite the main male protagonist portrayed as being powerful, they also seems to lack common sense and often or not seems to need help with logic of the real world. Both series also seems to make fun of popular culture and has references as well. There is also action that are sometimes exaggerated. The main female character in both series are a bit different but has an awkward relationship with the mc throughout the series. On the other hand, Fuyumi (Blood Lad) and Chiho (Hataraku Maou-Sama!) has some similarities.
Strangely enough both these anime is really similar. Similar kind of art style if that is what attracted you, but also similar humor.
-Both have quirky "demon lord"
-Both are in==enticed by the human world, in one way or the other.
and plus, both are very funny and im hoping for more funny situations and stuff with Blood Lad
the CV of both protagonist is same..
both protagonist is supposed being a bad guy,, but actually they are a funny, crazy, good guy
the story has a 2 world..
both has a great action..
the comedy is great..
Both involves big bosses who goes to the human world and live a simple life, both have the same action, fantasy and comedy genre.
The second i started watching Blood Lad, i Immediately got struck by that 'special atmosphere', so typically experienced back when watching Hataraku Maou-sama!.
Already from the get-go, the series share's 'alot' of serie-elements and strikingly similiar plot-twists.
Many of the reasons behinde this common Atmosphere they share, can be easily explained [[see below]]
The very moment you're introduced to the Main-Protagonist Charlie Staz, you'll immediately start seeing that he has some clear similarities to Hataraku's; Maou-sama.
1. Staz is just like Maou, a type of demonic creature. Staz being a Vamp and Maou the Devil in own high person.
2. Staz and Maou are both very high-ranking individuals, and both have right-hands and helpers at thier service.
3. They're both a bit Lazy in nature but have also shown that they both; when challenged or motivated with the various tasks or goals, are able of performing exceedingly well.
4. Staz has a tendency (just like Maou-sama) for not taking his helpers nor other people's feelings: into full consideration when tasking them around or engaging with them socialy.
5. They both come from another world/dimension (usually demonic in nature,) to earth through some kind of teleportation device or portal. Though they split on the fact that Staz actually wants to go to the Human world, whereas Maou did not.
6. They're both "Masters" at unconsciously getting girls to fall in love with them. Though Staz is (like Maou-sama) simply way too self-centered to really notice anything,.. (Anything meaning Chiho/Fuyumi-chan)
7. Staz and Maou are both adapt very fast in the face of mayor plot-twists (many which they cause themselfes, often without thier knowledge).
8. Lastly, i wanted to enlighten those whom have so far been too blind to have noticed it,.. it being the fact that Staz and Maou-sama both share the same Voice-actor: Ohsaka, Ryota
+ I'd also like us all to welcome Mr. Komesu Taichi, on his debute and i hope well be seeing himin further series down the road.
The same entities from the underworld wanting to live in the human world, a lot comedy, except one is a bit disgusting.
They have a similar ambient, are comedic and funny, and also have interesting fights and characters.
Both Main Male character are demons (vampire count as a demon). Both started at the demon world then the human world and both have a gate to enter/leave the human world.
Same category (Comedy) has underworld
Both are shows about demons, they're both packed with comedy and action
Both series involve a demon lord and a hero to take a job,
In Yuushi they are still in there own world thought cause no hero's are needed anymore,
In Maou-sama they went to the human world cause they had no other choice.
Hataraku Maou-sama! and Yuusha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shuushoku wo Ketsui Shimashita (Yuushibu for short) not only have similar starting settings but also have the same comical scenario: Comedy at the workplace. By making the demons work in a regular store (McRonalds in Hataraku Maou-sama and Lawson's in Yuushibu) and assimilating to the workplace, both shows create hilarious comedy. In Maoyuu's case, from adapting too well to climbing the corporate ladder and penny pinching and in Fino's case, from lacking common sense and etiquette and scaring customers.
Both involves supposes legendary warriors and a head demon, who found themselves washed-off and working part-time jobs. Dissimilarities: One has an extra ecchi genre, whiled the other has action as its extra genre.
Demon King gets Kicked, and the plot's centred about protagonist working at a store. Be it selling papasonic stuff, or selling MgRonald burgers
about hero and demon lord working
Both about (would be) heroes and demon lords who know have to work in human society.
- Involves a hero and a demon entering the human world for the first time
-main character must adapt to the new world and get a part time job
- both have a fantasy, comedy, romance genre
- both series are very funny
The same situation were high ranking entities have been demoted to work as freeters.
The same situation where washed-up legendary warriors and demons now live simple lives.
Let's Put it simple.... Both involve Heroes and Demons working at a Part time job... :) although there is a slight difference.. Just watch it to fing out..btw Yuushibu is still ongoing...
In both series, demons somehow end up in the human world and they get a job. In Hataraku Maou-sama!, it's the demon lord, while in Yuushibu, it's the daughter of the demon lord.
In both series, there are heroes who also get a job in the human world. In Hataraku Maou-sama!, there's Emilia who comes to the human world looking for the dark lord. In Yuushibu, there's Raul and his friend Airi who end up getting a job because they couldn't become heroes.
