Devil 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!

“At the moment, the tide favors the enemy. But is bound to turn in our favor before long! That is the moment we must wait for. And as we prepare for that glorious moment... Let the windows be cleaned!” — Maō Sadao

Unholy burger and fries. I would sure love to try them.

Supreme comedy. That’s what Hataraku Maou-sama is. I like to split the comedy genre into two types when it comes to it and the anime series in general: the first one is the comedy flow that is present through the entire series. It is there to make the series a tad lighter, to bring read more

Hataraku Maou-sama! (I will shorten it to HM) is personally the best comedy anime this season for me. I started watching it when a friend of mine told me it's about a demon lord drifted to the modern-day Tokyo and started working at McD*n*ld's (becomes MgRonalds in this anime). Just by that description I could already imagine how outrageous and hilarious this anime can be, and I'm glad it is!

Story :
Every episodes is executed nicely and although sometimes the pacing can be a little too slow, it doesn't really affect the overall enjoyment of the story. New characters are added every few episodes to read more

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.
reportRecommended by Lyfa - Add to favorites

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 ..
