    Episode one was actually quite good! If nothing else this promises to at least be a funny, entertaining show. Ashiya was particularly funny, particularly his attempts to use magic in the human world. The funniest part was how enthusiastic Maou-sama is about working for Mcdonalds. Good show, well worth watching.

    Re: Hataraku Maou-sama!

    I never saw a demon lord happy about working at a fast food restarant...
    The first episode was very funny and I'm definitely will continue watching this.
    The relationship between the Maou and the female hero will be very fun to watch...

    Re: Hataraku Maou-sama!

    Within about half of the first episode, I start to doubt if he really is the demon lord. >.>"

    I mean, it's just so funny how he's so enthusiastic and devoted about working at a fast food restaurant! (I mean, yeah, I lol'd so much when he thought of using the little of what's left of his magic to do something about the broken fryer~ XD ) By the end of the episode, for some reason, he seems so much happier and excited with being promoted as a permanent employee in the fast food restaurant than when he was a demon lord...XD

    Someone at NicoVid even made a vid with him in the real McDonald's CM! LOL

    It's quite rare for any anime to get me this hooked in a single episode though, but this one really pulls a great one off. Am really looking forward to the next episode.

    I laughed so hard when they were acting all evil and just a few weeks later they're perfectly fitting in and enjoying their time in the human world It has barely started but I already love Maou and how he changed from an evil overlord to a kind and funny guy XD

    My favourite scene probably was this:



    "Is this Supersize me?"

    Maou is the ambitious sort. It doesn't matter whether he is seeking to conquer the human world, or sell pepper fries, he approaches everything with the same zeal and enthusiasm.

    Episode 2:

    The 100 Yen Hero...

    The demon lord works at a fastfood restaurant and the hero at a call center... Oh god...
    And did she cry because she couldn't get in the appartement?! How cute! X'D

    Though Ashiya and Maou are both big retards...

    And Chiho is an airhead... Oh god... So adorable...

    Yusa asking Maou to stay overnight.,..

    Someone shot at them though... I wonder who and why... And what's with the earthquakes... :O

    I didn't read the synopsis before beginning to watch, so, in the first few minutes I was like "Meh, I think I will just shut this down before even the first episode ends". Thankfully, the things that followed it up were what I'd look for in the first place: Fun!

    Oh, by the way, Maou thinks he can get to the top from scratch. Way to go, Dark Lord! Fight against the power of capitalism with all your might

    But isn't he actually working FOR capitalism...?
    I mean he thinks a full time job is the first step to world domination...

    Yeah, that too. But in capitalism, to get power and money, you need.. money
    If they are undying humans as of now, they could actually make it one day

    One sentence...I've never seen a hero who's that cute. Period. XD

    I loved that scene, so funny and adorable. Emi is an incredible character, her presence really elevated episode two. Emi and Sadao make a great pair. Hikasa Yoko's voice work was brilliant, she did a great job making Emi sound like more than a caricature. A good mix of strength and vulnerability. The other scene I really loved was when they were being questioned by the police. I loved how mad she got that they were mistaken for being a couple.

    Though I think it's more like...it's just how Hikasa is already as well. Probably the first time I can clearly hear Hikasa as being so Hikasa in any anime (partly because I end up watching anime where she voiced serious character...not this cute type who always makes some fuss). >_<"

    But...the contrast between the prologue and second episode is really...I do wonder if Maou-sama can really get back to his power through becoming a full timer in MgR though...XD

    Re: [Featured] Hataraku Maou-sama!

    Episode 3:

    Chiho is too adorable... Maou... You're such a lucky guy...

    The hero is somewhat the demon lords guardian... Bwahahahaha :'D
    And Maou's reasoning for calling Emi... Excellent...


    How was Ashiya able to be a demon lord btw...? He is... a bit pathetic... Getting worked up over groceries...

    My favourite lines were the talk about how advantageous small breasts are... Cheaper plate armor and such... :'D

    Furthermore the catfight was very fun...

    The plot got a dark touch... I wonder who wants the Hero and Satan dead? Maybe a thrid party from Ente Isla? And who was talking to Chiho? Why have Maous powers returned?

    So many questions...
