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, there are two people that 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 was bewildered. He's the strongest magician but, he doesn't have any social skills. Panicking, the first words that came out were 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!
Are you tired of the same old isekai shit you see every season?
Pissed off over OP as fuck main protagonists?
Want to just burn an anime that depends on fanservice to make it popular?
If your answer to all of those questions was yes, then don't bother watching this anime, because it's the same old shit.
This one, this is just almost all the isekai you've watched rolled into one cringy mess.
BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE!
Of course, the huge selling point of this anime is the fanservice (perhaps the underlying plot that goes unnoticed as well). And by golly, it's one of the best fanservice you've ever seen. An
elf with huge tits, a loli neko, a loli bunny girl in revealing clothes, the list goes on and on.
If you're into that kind of shit, go and watch it!
to be completely fair, Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu is an a very underappreciated, and often criticized, series among op character fans. many call it a an overlord clone, or state that it has a poor plot/development as a whole.
however, i respectfully disagree - moreover, i'm going to review the anime adaptation of manga . although i have a different approach to this series, being an avid fan of its characters, i really do suggest reading the manga before watching the anime.
but with that out of the way, here's my initial take on the starforce anime:
character: as far as
character development goes, the anime adaption is fairly good. the main character, Takuma Sakamoto , is still afraid of talking to girls ,aas expected from neet otaku gamer & find him self taking the prsona of his character demonlord diablo to interacte with grils.
as for the side characters, nothing really changes, nice oppai girl & tusnaderi loli, god i love me some loli big oppai fanservis
story: the adaption is fairly good
art and sound: the art is, well, mediocre. its nothing impressive at all, and at times, looks rather bland.
Really enjoyable series. Takuma Sakamoto was not as annoying as other anime character in ecchi anime. The fanservice is nothing too crazy, which is good. I really like the character designs. The registration scene was a lot of fun.
"Like Overlord but better" That's how I got roped into watching this. Looking back I have no idea what that person thought was good in Overlord if this is the improved version.
To be fair to the show, I recognize that I proceeded to watch it in completely wrong mindset with that introduction, but the show itself doesn't really help with title and premise.
Let's be completely clear: whatever image you may have of title "Demon lord", go ahead and completely disregard it in this anime. There is much boasting and talk how the MC is Demon lord and acting the part, but really it's all talk.
He is basically just another Isekai good guy protagonist, and naive one at that. His actions aren't particularly demonic and he doesn't really lord over anyone. His "slaves" mostly tell him what to do. This is best exemplified when reveals to this summoners that he is "Demon lord". Do they recoil in horror, terrified of having summoned enemy of the world itself? Nah, they basically react like they've just pulled super rare gacha summon. That's in the context of them being completely enslaved to this summon.
That said, Isekai Maou does some things right, the harem cliches I've grown to despise in Isekai genre are at least more toned down than some of the more egregious offenders. That however not enough to salvage this one, because the cliches are still there and show does nothing to rise above the level of mediocre story-wise.
Now, perhaps the show will get better but judging by what people have commented about the source novel, I am not expecting it.
