The LN won the Silver Award in the 17th Dengeki Novel Award. It is about the demon Satan who somehow got trapped in an ordinary neighborhood in Tokyo and had to work a part-time job in a fast food restaurant to make ends meet. In his struggle to become a full-time employee he had to deal with neighbors, colleagues and also the warrior who came to Japan in order to defeat him.

This novel has long been on the list of LN most likely to be animated. I am glad that it finally gets anime adaptation.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Meh, sounds decent enough, also I love when mangas have an exclamation mark at the end of the synopsis to make their average plot sound interesting

Is it just me or are Light Novels always about demons and shit nowadays? White Fox is the only reason I'd watch this.

I don't like this kind of demon in modern day and etc.

But since Ohsaka Ryota is in here, I might give it a try :D

This will be interesting if they don't make it generic, like harem. But by the promises the main character is giving I don't think it would be a problem

Very nice. I really like the characters in this series. Hope it'll be good.
I'm also filled with pure-hearted ulterior motives.

It probably won't be a master piece but it could be quite interesting at least that's what I think after reading the manga^^

I would say that the music by Ryosuke Nakanishi, who also did the music for Highschool DxD, is as much as point of great interest as ED by nano.RIPE

And that just goes to show how much you have missed. Nothing more.

Read a couple of chapters, quite an enjoyable read and a strong cast of characters. Nothing spectacular but I'm definitely looking forward to this one.

After reading it, it's feels average at best.. maybe because i've been reading too many of these school life/slice of life/romance lately but i dunno..

Well, might as well watch it when it comes out, though i can see myself dropping it after around 6 episodes..

The full PV looks decent. I love how much they put focus on those struggling youngsters stuck in part-time or temporary contract jobs:
