William Twining is one of Stratford School's top students, but despite attending a religious school, he does not believe in God or the supernatural because he is an emphatic realist and a proponent of modern science.

Although the Twinings are one of Britain's most prestigious noble families, William's missing uncle accumulated a lot of debt. One day, desperate to find anything valuable in his manor that he can sell to pay this debt, William stumbles upon a secret room in which a stranger inexplicably appears. This intruder introduces himself as Dantalion, Grand Duke of Hell.

Dantalion claims that William is the "elector" who can choose the representative Emperor of Hell, and furthermore, this authority is inherited only by descendants of the ancient wise king Solomon. William's mindset does not allow for the existence of Heaven or Hell, so naturally he denounces Dantalion as a fraud and declines to support his candidacy for Emperor. However, the demon refuses to take no for an answer, even if he must enroll at Stratford as "Dantalion Huber" in order to stay near the elector and convince him. How can William fend off this unwelcome hanger-on, and the others that are sure to follow?

Makai Ouji is absolutely incredible and is one of my favourite manga of all time. This series means everything to me. Gorgeous art and great characters. The ending has me in tears everytime I read it. Highly recommend it to anyone who wants a manga with great art, BL themes that aren't gross/fetishization, awesome worldbuilding, lovely character designs, or all of the above. Though if you want a series with a large and active fandom, you're unfortunately out of luck. In my opinion it's still worth it, though. If you're here from the anime then please read the manga from the beginning, the anime does read more

A fascinating story I got around to read thanks to pure coincidence, but as of late I've seen myself grow more and more addicted to this little pasterpiece.
The art is fabulous, to say the least, and the story is so colourful, deep and full of mistery. The characters are nicely developed and I like were the story is currently headed. Overall, a fine manga that I can proudly call one of my favourite. No way in hell I give it less than 10.

I find it odd that while the anime had a lot of bad reviews this manga isn't known at all.

Story: 8
Let's just say that the plot isn't the best I have ever seen, but it has a lot of originality in it, like as other works from the same authors, the fact that demons are actually less evil than angels in the end is one of the points I liked mostly. Even though the series is quite new, it needs more time to fully develop.

Art: 10
This was absolutely, the most gorgeous, magnificent, and most elaborate manga I have ever read, you should definitely take a read more

This is, in truth, one of my absolute favorite mangas of all time.

Now, I'm VERY picky when it comes to manga. With anime, I'm typically not as critical, however since the mangas are (usually) the original version of whatever the anime may be (unless it doesn't have an anime adaption), I have much higher expectations. I watched the anime first, as I usually do, because I like to understand the whole story and basic plot of the series before really diving deep into it. This was exactly the case with Devils and Realist. The anime adaption was OK, the animation was pretty choppy in some read more
