Following an injury that prevents him from further pursuing baseball, Yuuhei Kishimoto, a normal high school student, now has too much time on his hands. On the upside, this allows him to finally pay proper attention to his pet—Satan. Despite his seemingly difficult personality and the fact that he is, well, the devil king, Satan doesn't bite. In fact, he is a caring, shy, and quite easy to understand pet. Yuuhei, therefore, takes care of his pet as he would any other—he feeds Satan, takes him out for walks, and showers him with affection. As a bonus, Yuuhei sometimes has to keep Satan from going berserk or summoning creatures from the underworld, as well as maintain Satan's status as the devil king.
Full of light-hearted charm and humor, Uchi no Maou Kamimasen yo follows this unusual owner and pet duo through their daily lives filled with both ordinary and supernatural events.
After reading this I desperately wanted to have my own pet Satan. How difficult that is to explain to my devout Catholic mother.
In any case, this, my friends, is a gag manga. They're be some unexpected things that honestly made me laugh my boot out loud. You can say my expectations weren't high at first, but I was intrigued by how messed up the plot was. Which explains why I didn't give it a perfect ten.
There are still some holes. For example-- they never do explain why they have supernatural pets. It's just some normal phenomenon. The author seemed to be more intrigued
with the relationship between pet and owner, which is to be honest a worthy plot on it's own. I adored it greatly.
The art itself was high quality. Nothing to scream about, but it's expected quality. You know whose physically attractive and whose not. I think I have to give props to the maganka for drawing a skeleton in so many panels. God knows how difficult that is to draw every single rib. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at Satan and Mizuchi.
As for characters-- There was surprisingly no one hateable. I love them all. Unfortunately, I don't want to spoil anything, so you'll have to make do with me being vague and all. Yuuhei, owner of Satan, is relatable. He treats Satan like a brother, rather than a pet, and supports him no matter what. He unfortunately got into an accident that stopped him from playing baseball. Satan is an adorable cinnamon bun whose too good for this world (ironically.) We also have the remaining family, which also surprise, surprise! Isn't tragic at all! The mother is sweet, the sister is a cunning mastermind, and the father is best left unsaid.
We also have the four remaining divas, however, it seems not all of them were revealed. But let it be known that they hold a dear place in my heart. They all have their quirks that make them really memorable.
I thoroughly enjoyed the very wrong romance. (not what you think.)
Actually I just enjoyed pretty much everything. I've always been more of a satire-comedy kind of person, saw this kind of raw comedy is refreshing to me. The readability of this short manga is pretty high. It's adorable as hell.
This isn't your typical demon manga! Our story starts off with Yuuhei, a boy with a troubled past, giving his shy and sweet-adoring demon king pet for a walk, oh did i forget to mention this pet is literally Satan?
The story contains cute and interesting characters that keep you hooked until the end, mix in some great art and some goofy situations, and you have a great afternoon read.
The one problem with this manga however is that there is very little actual story for the first 25 or so chapters, so if your looking for constant action and brutal fighting straight from the beginning,
i'd stick with blood lad.
