Mephisto Bart Kucabara is a devil lawyer. In order to return to the demon world that he was exiled from, he needs to collect enough Dark Matter. To do so, he creates a plan to claim the Dark Matter from the souls of sinners sentenced to hell; prove the soul's innocence and the Dark Matter becomes his.

Defense Devil was a huge disappointment for me. It starts out strong, but you can almost see the point where the authors just stopped caring and started blatantly trolling the readers.
