Gods and demons wage a neverending battle with the mortal realm as their battlefield. As with most longstanding feuds, the reasons are no longer important--hatred is a way of life. But it is foretold that one would arise who could restore harmony between gods and demons. Enter Raenef...heir to a set of demon royalty, he is hardly courtly material. The demon king assigns Eclipse to be his tutor, to mold Raenef into proper demonic shape. The two begin a journey of discovery and are soon joined by a human knight and a god-blessed priest.

Initially bursting with potential, Demon Diary appears to be the result of what happens when writers are changed during the progression of the story, when plot line sort of either disappears or emerges to have as much sense as a can of beans.
Likely to be this manga’s weakest link, Demon Diary begins with a simple plotline of Raenef’s education to become Demon Lord. Slowly, characters are introduced and relationships are established. This all turns to hell halfway through when ‘revelations’ are made which are about as believable as claiming that pigs could fly. The change in authors appeared to have resulted in a plot that read more

I consider Demon Diary on of my favorite manwha's. The story and characters are funny, enjoyable and adorable. To be honest I didn't think I would like Demon Diary that much but I found myself completely loving the entire series.

Yes, the authors did change(Lee Ji Hyoung had high school entrance exams and was busy) but the new author(Lee Yun Hee) took the story and made it something that you could find yourself reading again and again.

The art, story, and pretty much everything else was very enjoyable. It first caught my eye at a used bookstore...the cover looked interesting enough so I bought it. I'm quite happy to say i was NOT disappointed at all…in any way. Well, except one…i wish it had continued. Mostly because I was…dissatisfied with the ending. Quite frankly, it could have been better. It seemed to almost be a cliffhanger in a way, if I'm remembering correctly.

This manga wasn't BAD, per say. It was just very, very flat. If not for the canon-ghey appeal, there would be nothing left to this, not even to fangirls. It takes the uke-seme stereotype and plays it up to cardboard. I just got bored and gave up on it after a few volumes.

If canon-ghey in-of-itself, regardless of good story or character, is enough to hold your attention, then by all means. You may enjoy this. If you prefer shounen-ai with character, read "FAKE"; it's a good old standby.
