Fear and darkness loom above the lives of the citizens of Ente Isla, as the Demon Lord Satan wages war against humans to rule over the world. However, just as humanity nears defeat, their champion, the hero Emilia, successfully brings Satan's conquest to a standstill. This quandary forces him to retreat to a random world known as Earth, alongside his most loyal general, Alciel.

Vowing to one day return, Satan decides to recover his powers in this new world. Unfortunately, Earth ends up being devoid of invaluable magic. Even so, he remains undeterred from his goal of world domination. To cope with the disadvantage this world brings him, he disguises himself as a human named Sadao Maou. Moreover, he starts to work part-time at a fast-food restaurant, while Alciel finds a way to restore their magic reserves. Soon enough, however, Satan realizes that he wants to conquer both Ente Isla and Earth.

Thus begins Satan's journey of becoming a full-time employee and climbing to the top of the corporate ladder. Yet, Emilia suddenly appears, throwing cold water on his plans once again, declaring that she's going to finish him off for good.

Preliminary (40/? eps)
Obligatory "It's my first review, reader-kun, please b-be gentle!"

That aside, I'll put aside the seller-style description of this story to get to the juicy parts. Just know that there will be very slight spoilers about the start of the story, but honestly, you can probably tell who's who and what'll happen at the start just by looking at the cover image.

This story is mainly about the Demon lord, Maou, and the Hero, Yuusha (In this case, Yusa). Forced to set aside their differences for the time being, they work in Tokyo to try and make a living, while they make a few friends, ...

The story is pretty gripping for this anime. It is a reverse isekai about fantasy characters with powers living life in a real world society. The story occassionally has some ecchi moments, and very funny villains that are usually played for laughs. The series eventually develops into a wholesome slice of life which was also great.

The art is pretty stellar. I enjoyed the character designs and battles a lot. Even backgrounds often have decent detail put into them.

The characters are my favorite part of the manga. It is what puts it as my favorite isekai story. ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (104/? eps)
Spoiler-free but some can vaguely figure out by reading between the lines.

I binge-read the manga after seeing one of my absolute favorite animes getting a season2 after 10years and the complaints around the ending in LN. This is obviously not the review for the anime or the LN. I wanted to give a chance to the manga as I do not regard an ending around otps can warrant such reaction to the story and the comedy quality itself.

Story- 3/10
Enjoyment- 8/10
Overall -5/10

Now, the manga is still ongoing compared to the LN, so my bad rating on the story has n o t h i n ...

Do you think Maou ended up with the wrong girl in the LN? Will we see an alternative ending in the Manga?
