Hataraku Maou-sama!

Hataraku Maou-sama! or Demon King at Work! just got an anime announcement for 2013. To be produced by White Fox....



Story, cast and staff lifted from MAL

Quote:
Devil King Sadao is only ong step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As "conquering the world" are the only skills the Devil King possesses - and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation - he must work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses!

Series Composition: Yokotani Masahiro ("Beelzebub")
Character Design: Ikariya Atsushi ("Fate/Zero")

This would be good....

Anyway, based on the PV, did he lost his memory as a demon Lord?

He didn't. None of the characters lost their memory.

Synopsis looks intriguing and the visuals are pretty well-endowed and pleasing too. The idea of having a demon king working as a fast-food worker looks unique too. Will give it a shot.

This looks like fun, plus Ohsaka getting a leading role that isn't in some stupid brocon harem! \o/

This looks much more like the kind of Yoko Hikasa fantasy role I can get behind. The concept of a villain and a hero in a world that doesn't need either also looks appealing.

The premise sounds like it could be cute but anime comedy is always very hard for me to get into.

I am more interested because Ohsaka Ryota is the lead. He was great as Yuki in Tsuritama and I am definitely happy to see he is getting more lead roles.

Been done before:



The potential for cross-over fanfic is huge.

Yeah I did the same the other day, it won't be anything special but it could end up being entertaining enough, which is all I can ask for.

So if the green haired guy is the Demon Lord and the red hair girl is the Hero set out to destroy him, who are the other two?

this will be on my watch out list but I'm still not sure on how the story will work. The pv and synopsis doesn't provide much help on the story itself.

Not really a spoiler since it says what they are as soon as you see them.. but just in case.

Just read the first 2 chapters of the manga. If the anime adaptation is good this series will be amazing.
