Suzuki Iruma has been sold to the demon by his irresponsible parents in exchange for money. Surprisingly, next thing he knows, he is living with the demon and has been transferred into a school in the Demon World...
Started reading this one a whim the other day since it doesn't have many chapters so far. Demons and stuff aren't typically my thing, so I didn't expect for it to really catch a hold of me, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The artwork seems a little sloppy an clunky at times, aside form more detailed panels, but it's not really a problem since in a way that just adds to its charm. The characters are super creative, fun and easy to like, even the ones that are supposed to be the "bad guys." The humor is well-timed and genuinely funny. There's no lack
of touching moments, despite there being only 12 chapters at the time I wrote this review. On top of all that, the hints of an underlying plot keep you wanting more. I'm very excited to see where this is going. I definitely recommend this one if you're looking for something fun and lighthearted.
The story depicts the original and unique plot . A human boy who was unlucky sold to a old Demon Sullivan. It is very fun to read and interesting to repeat again.
Every chapters day by day gives a hype and excitement that probably one of the good traits of this manga. Even though, the characters potrayed are very not good at all yet the author shows a lot of funny reactions and jokes that slightly find in other mangas.
Nothing can be done, a first human who settled in the Demon World. The first human who gets a first servant who is the number 1
in the rankings of freshmen. The first human who gets a familiar. And the first human maybe a candidate for Demon Lord's Throne.
Everything in the story are hilarious and very much appropriate for kids, adults and also for anyone.
I thought I'd write a new review for this manga, since an anime adaption is on the way, and the other reviews are a few years old. I'll begin with a short spoiler-free summary, and then move into a deeper review.
Mairimashita Iruma-kun! is a fun school-life style comedy. The art style is somewhat simplistic, the comedy lighthearted and innocent, and the characters are bold and likable. The story is comprised of short arcs, episodic in nature, and there is little to no overarching plot. Characters still maintain the development they received during said arcs, however, so all good. Recommend for a light read, lots of
potential for the future. 9/10
More in-depth (still mostly spoiler free):
As mentioned previously, Mairimashita Iruma-kun is a comedy manga, and a school-life manga; however I was pleased to find that it is somewhat free from the more annoying tropes associated with the pairing. No major harem plot or perverted misunderstandings here; just a school-life finally free from the ecchi tag. The arcs occasionally follow the typical school-life formula, but just as occasionally deviates.
There is little to no overarching plot, however this does not hinder the manga significantly. Characters who learn and develop as they go maintain their development as the manga progresses, giving a sense of time passing within the story. World building is slow, but consistent, and hints are dropped at a larger, overarching story in the works for the future.
Art is consistent and well-proportioned. The art style is is somewhat distinctive and soft in areas In coloured pages, characters are often well-defined by singular, distinctive colours. Expressions are well-drawn and evoke emotion. The art could be better however, as it is a little simplistic at time, and uses a lot of blocking.
Characters are simplistic, bold, and likable. Even the villains are enjoyable to watch, and every character is distinctive from each other. Despite being simplistic in design, the characters are often expanded upon gradually.
This part is more a personal opinion, and I think this part is heavily dependent on the person. Some may think that the lack of consequence-heavy conflict is boring; I however, enjoyed this manga as a light read quite a bit.
A well-rounded manga driven by excellent characters and lighthearted humour that works well in the supernatural, school life and comedy genres.
