Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist
 

The wraparound jacket band on the sixth volume of Utako Yukihiro and Madoka Takadono's Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist manga is announcing on Tuesday that an anime adaptation is in the works.

Source

The story revolves around William, an aristocratic family's progeny with rare intellect. One day, his uncle lost his possessions after his business failed. Fearing that his family's name has been tarnished, William returns home and searches with his family's butler for anything that can be converted into cash. A search of the premises yields an underground room left by an ancestor. In the room is a magical seal, and William unintentionally summons a devil. The summoned devil tells William his name Dantalion, and reveals that William is the designator who can choose the acting ruler of the demon world.

I'm pretty sure they're unrelated....I think. I haven't read the manga so I'm just assuming.:heh:

MUAHAHAHAHAHA 2012-12-24 10:09

Great news! I really like William as a character. He is not a pushover, and plenty of LOL moments whenever he tries to rationalize anything that seems supernatural. I can't wait to know who will be voicing him. The artwork is one of the manga's strongest point, so I hope the anime will do justice to that.

I haven't read the manga but it looks nice enough, I hope the anime will get a good character designer and a nice animation budget. At the very least it can be my seasonal pretty boy fix...

Happy to see more joseis adapted! Really wondering on the seiyuu cast and how much they'll adapt

There's only this image for the anime teaser site

As for the seiyuu, after having read some of the manga I kind of hope it's not going to be the "usual suspects"... :heh: At least not all of them. I dunno, as much as I like hearing Ono Daisuke & Co, with them this show may be a bit too cookie-cutter. (And some fresh blood never hurts.)

kuromitsu 2012-12-28 08:47

...having read some more of the manga, now I want this show to air in the same season as Yondemasu yo Azazel-san 2. xD Even better if the two share some seiyuu.

Staff and cast announcements are going to be made on 3/28.

William Twining: Eguchi Takuya
Dantalion: Terashima Takuma

http://makai-ouji.com/staff.html

I don't really mind Eguchi Takuya as William but the choice for Dantalion....

Don't underestimate Tershima, he voiced character like Dantalion before. As long as he don't raise his keys to high, there should be no problem.

I'm very sure Dalian is a Mikumo Gakuto/G Yuusuke only character...

mistress_kisara 2013-03-28 02:49

Ugh..Kon Chiaki as the director, after the mess she made with Arcana famiglia..

Arcana famiglia is fine for Chiaki Kon work.Meaning she is one of the worst directors currently working.Now that we now who director is,we can easily conclude this anime will be a piece of shit.

kuromitsu 2013-03-28 05:11

Hmmm, well, not the "usual suspects" so far, that's good.

Terashima is talented and pretty versatile, so I'm not worried about him, he'll do a fine job. (Maybe he'll even make me like Dantalion more!) I didn't expect Eguchi, I wouldn't have even thought of him for this role, but hey, why not. I wonder who they'll get for Kevin.

By the way, in the meanwhile I've read up to volume 4, and I'm pretty disappointed with the direction the story took. I liked it when it was funny, the serious turn just made it like every other pretentious "angels vs demons" thing ever. :/ If anyone has read further: does it get funny again or is the gloom permanent?

Bern-san 2013-03-28 07:14

Guess I misjudged Terashima.

I don't really know what to make of Chiaki Kon to be honest because she made those terrible adaptations of Umineko and Arcana Famiglia (Higurashi in terms of adaptation wasn't excellent but you can enjoy it if you haven't read the VN unlike the other 2).
OTOH I liked Otome Yokai Zakuro and the problems I had with Sekaiichi Hatsukoi were related to the source material itself.

Since this isn't a visual novel she has possibilities of not making Makai Ouji a complete disaster but I don't have high hopes of being wonderful either.

At volume 5 some of the comedy returns again and there's a new character introduced which I like (the translations and raws end at the first chapters of volume 5 so I don't know if they get serious again).

I really really really hope he's not going to use that faux-deep voice... x__x) (Oh well, at least it's not Miyano.)
