So far, there have only been 5 chapters of the first volume released. I approached it after having recently read Overlord and Re:Monster, wanting a bit more of telling the story of the other side, in Maou no Hajimekata I found a new refreshing take on the tale.

Where to begin, the start of this jumps right in to forging yon necessary 'make follower x server you' macguffin and the start of setting up his power base. So, spoilers incoming.

Loved the fact that we were treated to some actual xxx rated stuff in some of it's glory, without it going over the top complete read more

(Spoilers) I'm not really good writing a review, but I found this manga so infuriating that I had to right something.
Don't get me wrong, I do like the approach with a character that is your perfectly Hero type, but the MC isn't a Anti-Hero, here is a Villain, it doesn't matter why he is doing what he is, if he does the same thing as Griffith from Berserk, he is in the same level as the worse villains out there in any story, with that being said, he isn't a good MC at all, the idea of the show is great, but a MC has read more

So, this manga has been an interesting read, however not a particularly good one. While the story reveals in its own grimness, it doesn't give me much of a reason to care for it. Just as a warning, let me say this: You will need a level of "sick" curiosity if you want to put up with this manga. As a video gamer who was always intrigued by the possibilities of an evil playthrough, but never had the guts to pull it off, this story peaked my interest.

The biggest problem with the story is its own weightlessness, which is a direct result of the fact read more

A story told from the villain's side, something not usually done. I didn't know the source material but I had high hopes for this manga since is rare to see a something like this. But as chapters were released my interest plummeted pretty quickly.

The plot is linear, most of the chapters consist of the mc tricking girls into sex to turn them in cumdumpsters, being a sadistic fuck and boasting how powerful he is, rinse and repeat. Using smut should be an additive to a story like this not the other way around.

Characters are not better than the ones from an hentai manga, even the read more
