As the commander of the Imperial Army's Third Legion, the Royal Empire's princess has led humanity to countless victories against the demonic Hellhorde. However, she has now been captured by the enemy and confined to the dungeons, with her sentient sword, Ex, as her only company.

Due to her royal status, the princess knows invaluable secrets that would help the Hellhorde achieve dominance. To have her reveal all the information they need, the demons do not hesitate to subject the princess to the most vile forms of torture—that is, tempting her with delicious food, lasting friendships, adorable animals, and the most enjoyable experiences imaginable.

Mixed Feelings
The greatest merit of this anime was its ability to depict ordinary scenes from life in great detail. Ep.1 managed to describe ordinary food in such a delicious and imaginative way; something as simple as toast could evoke golden wheat fields - the creator must be very good at enjoying small things in life. Watching late at night, it made my mouth watering - so looks like the audience are being interrogated as well!

The story (if we consider it as a story) was very simple: the captured Princess was repeatedly tempted by demon for until confession. In the first two episodes, I was concerned on ...

So... this was boring.

The idea itself has merit. A princess is captured and being "tortured" by demons in a (kill them with kindness) sorta way until they get the info they need out of her.

The trouble is how empty and flat the show is. Here's the format :-

Princess is in an ugly CGI prison cell, demon walks in with something nice, princess folds like a cheap suit & they're all best buds now. Repeat three time per episode.

There is no variety, the characters flat, the humor dies after the first episode because of the endless repetition.

It doesn't help that the demons don't ...
