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!


Hataraku Maou-sama! has been published in English as The Devil Is A Part-Timer! by Yen Press since March 24, 2015.

Manga: Ore ga Akuma de, Aitsu ga Yome de
Different stories but they're both gag manga having somewhat similar universe and comedy, where demons and angels stay/visit the human world or more specifically in japan to lay low until they gained more power to go back to their original world for Hataraku, while for Ore ga Akuma to create contracts and consume souls. Also their jokes and quite similar. The only difference is, Ore ga Akuma is more of a lolicon RomCom and mostly focuses on demons contracts while Hataraku has mild romance and more on the perks of a part-timer.

Similiarities: •The protagonist of both manga is a ruler of a kingdom in another world. Dissimiliarities: •The protagonist in one manga lose his magical powers, while in the other one did't •The protagonist in one manga can't go back and forth between worlds •The main female in one manga is a heroine with a holy sword

Manga: Maou-sama Chotto Sore Totte!!
-demon lord about to take over the world
-hero stops demon lord
-hero and demon lord get transported to another world
-some (forbidden) love (of a sort) between the two, but nothing really happens between them (yet)

Yeah, the premise is pretty much the same.

Manga: Momomoke Restaurant
* Both main characters are working in restaurant * Both series including supernatural creatures who disguising themselves as human * Both series has MC with similar hairstyle, a man with blond shoulder-length hair who's clingy to main character, and a genki twin-tailed girl. The difference is, while in Hataraku the main character is a devil lord who works in human's restaurant, in Momomoke the main character is a human who works in a youkai (demon)'s restaurant.

Manga: Noblesse
If you like the humour of Hataraku Maou-sama!, you'll also enjoy Noblesse (and vice versa). Both deal with supernatural creatures trying to adapt to a modern day society, while still battling the concerns of their own epic quests. Both make use of the absurdity of modern life to create humourous situations.
