After the climactic battle to decide the fate of humanity, the hero Max, alongside his party, emerges victorious against the formidable Demon Lord. As he draws his last breath, the defeated Maou vows to return more powerful than ever to take his revenge.

Ten years later, although Maou has resurrected, the process is incomplete, resulting in him taking on the form of a child. Nevertheless, not wanting to waste another second, Maou pays his nemesis a visit—but the hero who once gallantly protected humankind from the demon's clutches is now a pitiful slob bearing no resemblance to a man of his former caliber.

Despite his disappointment, Maou moves in with Max in hope of building him back up into a worthy adversary. But as the demon learns more about the events that transpired in the decade of his absence, he realizes that there is a story behind Max's downfall that he knows nothing of.

In a sea of isekai and "ordinary Japanese schoolboy" anime, this series stands out as a breath of fresh air. Its story is not just unique but captivating, with characters that are both well-written and original, setting a standard for character development in the genre. The lore and storytelling mode draw a delightful parallel to "Isekai Ojisan," yet manages to surpass it with its depth and engagement. Visually, it shares a similar art design with "Meikyuu Black Company" and "Sentouin, Hakenshimasu!" which adds to its charm. Each episode has been a joy to watch, consistently delivering quality content that keeps viewers hooked. This anime is ...

Mixed Feelings
After defeating the demon lord 10 years ago, the great hero Max is now a deadbeat leaving in a tiny apartment.

The demon lord having now been reincarnated as a little demon girl is disappointed to find the hero they once respected in this current state.
They decide to stay with the hero and help him regain motivation in his life.

The demon lord has a very funny personality especially when compared to their original form.
Max is fine. He's just the guy trying to mind his own business but gets dragged along for the ...

Preliminary (5/12 eps)
Ever heard of comedy revolving around a once decorated person, only for them to laze around, aimlessly reading shounen jump and unwilling to do any work and lives in poverty? Yeah, the creation of Max clearly drew inspiration from Gintoki from Gintama.

The problem is how absolutely unfunny and lacking in action most scenes are. While the beginning is kind of funny, 99% of the jokes in the series become lewd/perverted jokes or it's some rom-com setup. They miss the mark completely. Max becomes friends with Maou, a demon he killed, and somehow, the Maou becomes very feminine in nature and personality to further facilitate the ...
