I love Hataraku but it's best not to compare this new show with it.


I don't understand the need to compare any comedy show with a remote connection to 'the demon lord' to Hataraku Maou-sama. Sure it was a great anime adaptation in its own right, but comparing this show with Hataraku is just comparing apples to oranges.

And it's just shallow minded. I don't know if its a edgy trend by anime watchers of recent, but when a Blood Lad adaptation was announced people were immediately comparing it to Hataraku before airing thinking Hataraku's setting the standard for new fantasy comedies with slight romance touches to it.

Seriously hope this doesn't happen to Yuusha ni Narenakatta.

To be honest, the similarity between the two series doesn't look like being more than superficial.


Exactly. Except for the words "Demon Lord", there's nothing in the synopsis that seems remotely close to Maou-sama. I'm expecting something like Working/Servant x Service with much less slice-of-life and much more moe, plus some superficial demon/hero background. Doesn't seem really interesting to me.

What bothers me is there isn't a pv yet.

Edit: Oh wait.

Not too happy about that ecchi, I could really do without them flaunting their tits around every 3 seconds.

I read one chapter of the manga and it was excellent.

Granted it is only one chapter but it had amazing art and there was a lot of chemistry between the MC and the female lead. It also had some fanservice that was nicely balanced with the comedy.

I am very excited about this one.

Why are all light novel titles so ridiculously long?
We know that sometimes an editor could even force a longer name on the novel if he thinks the title provided by the author is not descriptive enough. To stand out from the myriad of light novels lying around and given the short attention span of the young readers, it makes sense to use the title as a kind of short synopsis. The idea is to get the potential buyers to take up the book so that he would look at the illustrations and read the actual synopsis printed on the book cover. If the titles fail to catch the attention, then the battle is lost already.

Because it's supposed to tell you what the story is about, I say it's ridiculous as if you want someone to read it, put a cute female on the cover as that's already the bait needed to lure in a reader.


But (almost) every light novel has that.

Animation looks good for ecchi anyway. Maou-sama was great but i'd prefer something that wasn't a carbon copy and this doesn't look like it thankfully.


I doubt there will be much ecchi in this anime.
Oh, but there will be a lot of "plots" going around :P

Hagure Yuusha.


Where are you getting that from? This guy isn't the one who defeated the demon lord. And I seriously hope this series isn't about a guy going round sexually abusing everyone he meets.


"The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord."
It's probably quite a commonly used thing in anime, but when I read that sentence Hagure Yuusha was the first thing to pop into my head. There will probably be people trying to defeat the daughter of the demon lord, and the guy will have to protect her, sort of like Hagure Yuusha. I don't want to assume though.

The premise sounds kind of like if Maou-sama met Hagure Yuusha. Interesting.
