    Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist by Takadono Madoka & Yukihiro Utako



    Title: Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist
    Alternative Title: Hell Prince - Devils and Realist
    Author: Takadono Madoka
    Artist: Yukihiro Utako
    Year: 2009
    Publisher: Ichijinsha
    Serialized in: Comic Zero-Sum
    Scanlation: On-going @ The Zero Alliance
    Genre: Comedy, Fantasy, Historical, Mystery, School Life, Shoujo, Supernatural

    Summary:
    William Twining is blessed with both brains and wealth. He attends a prestigious school and lives in a huge mansion with his uncle and butler. But when his uncle's business endeavours fail, the Twining family is left bankrupt.
    While searching in a storeroom of his home for objects to put up for sale, William stumbles upon a secret room. This room contains a magical seal, with which he unintentionally summons a demon. This demon, Dantalion, tells William that he wields sole authority in selecting the "substitute ruler" of the demon world! So naturally, the candidates for the throne will pursue the bewildered and annoyed young man...

    Personal Thoughts:
    I love how this manga can be hilarious sometimes, with William insisting not to believe in magic, though he's been seeing evidences of it in front of his eyes. William is not a typical hero (oh, how he loves money... ), which makes him really interesting. The other characters are intriguing as well, especially Dantalion. (Not to mention, how good-looking all of them are. ) The thing I love best about this manga is the reference to Solomon and the 72 demons in the Lesser Key of Solomon (though only a few demons show up in the manga). I don't really like how demons are shown in a good light and angels in a bad light, but.. it's just a story after all. *shrug* I'm also a bit disturbed with hints of shounen-ai but since nothing actually happens, I tolerate it.
    Oh, and there's going to be an anime adaptation soon! I'm really excited for it.

    I was going to say "Hey, this looks interesting!" but then I saw the word shounen-ai...

    Well, given how I seem to be easily bored with lectures and spend time reading manga instead, I may decide to pick the series up soon. The summary looks quite entertaining, with comedy and fantasy element. Just not sure about that special word. :|

    Nah, just ignore it. As I said, nothing really happens. I think it is inevitable that it has the vibes of shounen-ai because of the lack of female characters.
    The plot and characters are really worth it (though sometimes you might get exasperated at William), you should check it when you have the time. And since it's going to have anime adaptation, you might be more prepared when you want to watch it. The cast is full of good seiyuus.
