In regards to the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Sakamoto Takuma boasted an overwhelming strength that was enough for him to be called the Demon King by the other players. One day, he gets summoned to another world with his appearance in the game. There, two girls insist, "I am the real summon master." Takuma gets slave-turning magic used for summoned beasts cast on him by the girls.

However, the peculiar ability "Magic Reflection" is invoked! The ones that were turned to slaves were the girls!

Takuma is bewildered. He's the strongest magician but, he doesn't have any social skills. Panicking, the first words that come out are the ones that he used inside the game role-playing the Demon King?! "I'm amazing you say? Of course I am. I am Diablo... The one feared as the Demon King!"

This is the story the Demon King (acting) that would soon inspire the world and his other world adventure that he plunges through with his absolute strength, raise the curtain!

Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu

This series tells the story of Takuma Sakamoto, the player nicknamed Maou in the MMORPG he played. One day he was carried to another world which was very similar to the MMORPG he played by two magical girls who wanted to master him. But Takuma turned out to have the ability to reflect magic and the two girls were now slaves. He inevitably had to continue to pretend to be a Maou when adventuring in this new world.
This novel was written by Yukiya Murasaki, and published by Kodansha. And has released eight volumes, the ninth volume will be read more

Anime series that solely exists for the boobs, butts and fanservice?
What type of a pathetic person would even watch such a thing?
Not me at least.

*I saw the uncensored version, this review is aimed for adult audience only, just like the anime.*

Ever since Sword Art Online landed, the anime industry has been trying their hardest to do clones of it. Clones which go beyond all the things that made SAO an ironic masterpiece. When Death March aired few seasons back, I thought no one would dare to take any more ridiculous self-insert isekai harem route. Apparently, the exact opposite happened, and Isekai Maou to read more

Personally, I love these types of shows and I promise it isn't the fanservice. I love overpowered MC's. It's just a matter of what personality they have. And this is one that I like a lot. The MC has been socially disconnected his entire life and has to interact with other NPCs(?) using his game persona. This leads to funny moments and surprisingly cool reactions that aren't standard for typical lead male roles (don't get me wrong there are moments like those in this).
It really is the MC that determines if the show is good or not.
On its surface, this is simply another power fantasy read more

If you want a good Overlord clone of a show, look no further than this show. At first, the LN-harem combi cliche of a genre has been overplayed almost EVERY season, and in fact I was close to dropping this show due to the ecchi, but some people told me that this looks like Overlord, and I was glad that with that in mind, I was able to enjoy the show.

If you haven't watched Overlord, go watch that one first then watch this one and see the similarities: an OP MC who is revered as the Demon Lord with outstanding and fearing strength, gets summoned read more
