When it comes to the fantasy MMORPG Cross Reverie, none can match the power of the Demon King Diablo. Possessing the game's rarest artifacts and an unrivaled player level, he overpowers all foolish enough to confront him. But despite his fearsome reputation, Diablo's true identity is Takuma Sakamoto, a shut-in gamer devoid of any social skills. Defeating hopeless challengers day by day, Takuma cares about nothing else but his virtual life—that is, until a summoning spell suddenly transports him to another world where he has Diablo's appearance!

In this new world resembling his favorite game, Takuma is greeted by the two girls who summoned him: Rem Galeu, a petite Pantherian adventurer, and Shera L. Greenwood, a busty Elf summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual in an attempt to subjugate him, but the spell backfires and causes them to become his slaves instead. With the situation now becoming more awkward than ever, Takuma decides to accompany the girls in finding a way to unbind their contract while learning to adapt to his new existence as the menacing Demon King.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Based on the light novel series written by Yukiya Murusaki.

Here we have another isekai-harem LN adaptation, as is though shared with many similar series of the kind, and this season alone, This is the ONLY Isekai LN adaptation that you should watch this season (and going forward) as it's largely competent on the likes of Overlord (similar but different)?

And also, just go for the uncensored version of the anime, that always helps if you love insane amounts of fanservice with boobage, ecchi shots and whatnot! You can thank me later.

Here we go again...yet another "transported into another world" (more like self-inserted) fantasy series of some random dude who managed to beat the game, know read more

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to own someone? I’m not talking about people who you hire or a business partner. I’m talking about if you actually hold ownership of someone like a slave. Taking on the role of a protagonist in a fantasy world is no easy task. Even for a guy like Sakamoto Takuma, he may be an experienced gamer but he’s never been equipped to deal with a life changing event such as being transported into the very game he played. After becoming “Diablo”, he learns that the hard way.

If I had a choice to kill off a genre it would be Isekai. Out of all the anime genres, the Isekai genre seemed to be the one to annoy me to end due to how poorly written and pandering most of the shows of the Isekai genre are. Say all you want about ecchi + harems but least they are for the most part dump fun shows that respect its own target audience not to mention most of the ecchi + harems anime are self-aware of how cheesy and for the most part bad they are. However, this self-awareness rarely happens in Iseaki as read more

Summer 2018 had been a ride of an anime this year. From the unexpected Season 3 of Overlord, the return of a massive anime Attack On Titan, to the anime where summer is all about the fun as well as isekai shows that needed to be judged alot. This summer, we have plenty of isekai to judge on and one of them is "How Not To Summon A Demon Lord." where at first it looks like it is another isekai trash with uncapable of a protagonist, although at least it is not like that. Also, for some reasons, I call this show a lite version read more
