The story revolves around William, an aristocratic family's progeny with rare intellect. One day, his uncle lost his possessions after his business failed. Fearing that his family's name has been tarnished, William returns home and searches with his family's butler for anything that can be converted into cash. A search of the premises yields an underground room left by an ancestor. In the room is a magical seal, and William unintentionally summons a devil. The summoned devil tells William his name Dantalion, and reveals that William is the designator who can choose the acting ruler of the demon world.

Let's cut the chase, and go to what really matters:

Story: one of the most curious plot I've seen in my anime watching life. A rock headed realist with the power to select the new ruler of Hell. A meatheaded demon and his companions/rivals wanting to be selected as the new ruler of Hell. A Victorian England set. Angels in the middle of it. Wait...what? That was my first good impression, the setting was good, the time was good (personal opinion, I love the Ol' England times) and, well, I didn't got disappointed. The plot was amazing, even though sometimes it was quite slow-paced (again, personal read more

Makai Ouji is definitely something you would probably on first impression be like: This is so unoriginal, the story is boring, why would anyone make this.
But once you actually finish the first episode, you become enticed and deeply connected with the whole story and it's characters, honestly worth your time.

Story: The story is great. It's action packed with jocular/jovial relief. The story centers around a young high-school teenage boy named William Twinning, and the setting is around the same as Black Butler, I would say. William turns out to be the descendant of the great demon tamer Solomon, and William is now forced to balance read more

I really wanted to like this anime. Unfortunately after sitting through 12 episodes all I could think about was how it was a complete waste of my time. I haven't read the manga myself so what ever that I say in this review I say it for the anime only.

Basically the entire show was a flatline, nothing special and nothing particularly interesting. At the beginning it shows some promise by leaving a few mysteries here and there which is why I actually stuck with it for 12 episodes, only to find a wall at the end of the tunnel. The story revolves around main read more

So here comes my review. I'll make it as short as possible~

I did really like the idea of Solomon and William, who is the "Elector". It was a nice idea to put it like that. Also I like this whole bunch of demons and contracts-stuff. It's really interesting. Although it's kind of critizing the church a lot. So if you have a problem with that, don't watch. I have no problem with this, but maybe they've got a bit too far at some point... And also I suppose there will be a second season because the end was ...not ending this, hm?

The art is kinda read more

Anime: Kuroshitsuji
Both have the same elements: butlers , "bochan", bishonens, elegance, demons, contracts, fanservice with shonen ai background tones, even the fonts of the titles are almost alike, the same setting and feeling, with dark aura but with comedy very funny, the story in both are almost alike because of the contents. But I found Kuroshitsuji a little darker.

Anime: Kamigami no Asobi
Both are supernatural fantasy anime with some comedy. Both anime have bishounens surrounding the lead character. However, Makai Ouji's protagonist is a male while Kamigami no Asobi's is a female. 
reportRecommended by epicrevenge
Anime: Ao no Exorcist
Both animé involves demons and the supernatural. The main characters have powers and skills that are yet to be mastered. They have the same dark but also light atmosphere, in Makai Ouji's case and in Ao no Exorcist, that has characters that relieve the tension. Both has its funny moments as well. Although William Twining is an elite who is born to a prestigious family and possess above average intelligence, Rin Okumura is the opposite. Both have an interesting plot that I would watch again and again, so I would definitely recommend if you like the concept of demons.
