Ashiya gets more bonus point for 1) fitting Maou with the appropriate clothes for the ocassion, and 2) tailing Maou from the distance on the latter's date.

Ok. Maou explains the technical aspect of the magic that enabled Chiho to hear two nights ago a strange voice; a voice coming from both Emi and Maou's world, but Chiho is able to understand the language. Mhhh.....

I think Chiho would be made used by the unseen assailant in latter episodes, but for now we have grounded the root that causes the earthquakes, magic. And, it happens a big one turns at a bad timing when Maou and Chiho are dating.

After the earthquake subsides, Emi and Chiho were more or less make ammends or putting themselves in a temporarily truce, but the heroine warns the gullible child not to get drawn to Maou, unless she'll suffer badly.

But, guess what happens? Maou not only returns to his demonic form with all and magic, but he's actually sacrificing himself for others and taking care to have Chiho rescued, much to Emi's shock and denial.


Poor hero! What's going to happen to her role as Hero, if Maou completely turns to the good side?
I have a better question: What will happen to her sanity when it turns out he was never the bad guy?

It wasn't clear to me how Maou looked when the light went dark but I felt suddenly he was all bishified and the glowing red eyes looked kind of secshy. Or maybe I just saw it wrong. Regardless, the moment when he turned around with the glowing red eyes saying he would save the world (or something along that line) made him look secshy.

I really like the music in the show. The piano playing when Maou and Chiho were talking about the quake was great.

The quake caught me by surprise. I thought it'd just be a tiny shake. I'm interested in who the other guy attacking them last week was.

I like the part where Maou got more buff than he ever was in that flashback when he ruled as the demon lord. Also, I think it's pretty obvious at this point who the culprit from episode 2 is. (The only other remotely humanoid demon general briefly introduced in the flashback) Hopefully I'm proven wrong on my suspicion and it turns out to be one of the hero's allies, because that sounds pretty neat on paper.

it seems maou is never the bad guy after all..its just like the state of two country in the war in each other, there is never a bad guy, each side is just as "sinful" as the other side, beside who knows the fate of demon race to make maou to attack the human, are they being oppressed? or the human attack first secretly?chastised them like every good church do? is the decision is pure maou's will or is it the will of the masses, he just basically being "forced" to as the leader?

as the murderer of the yuusha's parent, in war casualties always exist, no leader can fully control each of their soldier like a chess piece, there will be always soldier who pillaged, kill, rape civilian, since in this case demon have a lot of animosity with human, kill any human they can find...regardless of the order...it;'s basically just wrong to solely blame it all in the hand of maou's, when yuusha dont even know the reason of war, and just assume he's some kind of mad tyrant like hitler

Yeah for some reason, Anime likes their Maou to be good guys.

Western fantasy stories are more straight forward- 'Evil Gods/Demons/Kings' are evil.

It's a Death Note meme. Headset + triumphant face = just as keikaku.

Don't worry, nobody actually translated it like that.

It's really more like Japan finally caught on to the fact that the straight Evil Demon Lord archetype is overused especially in the realm of fantasy stories and games (something which Japan loves way too much), and so now they can do something different by having the Maou's actually be misunderstood good guys instead.

I have to admit before watching anime I wasn't very familiar with seeing the Demon Lord/Satan in any story good or bad.

A most I saw him in possession/horror stories like the exorcist. I was terrified of being possessed as a kid. I also remember a really scary devil in the movie Legend (with a very young Tom Cruise)

Now maybe if Satan looked like this I would not have been so afraid.

Also I have a feeling in this situation it's partly a result of different mindsets. When you're a powerful, near-immortal being, why would you care about a people who, at most, would live only fifty years if they're lucky?

What was it that someone else said? To understand the perspective of a human, you have to spend time AS a human. And that's exactly what happened in this case; in his time as a down-in-his luck bum, Maou's now experienced what it's like as one of the people he likely didn't even give a thought about. Rather than get bitter and angry about it, he's picked up sympathy and a bit of compassion.

Unrelated: Wouldn't it be funny if Chi-chan turned out to be a better overlord than Sadao?

I doubt he has the compassion. He does less damage due to his reason. I think his logic is: He doesn't believe causing damage has the benefit. As some people point out in episode 3, he does something very noble. He does it because he concerns about economy(resource scarcity) and the cost benefit analysis.

Some Christian doujinshi interpretation puts these two names as one antagonist. Later, it became a popular idea.
It is stated in ep 1, Lucifer is one of four general of Satan (Maou)

You are completely missing the point of the show. The business manual obviously teach us to be kind towards customers He is in the service industry, of course the guidelines are going to include stuff about being attentive & well receiving, at least on the outside, most business promote a faultless, honest disposition.

So, basically as his bible is the rules of his workplace; he was taught to care. He is not helping anyone based on economy, numbers or profits, but merely is an extension on what he has to practice every day; he is basically taking his work ethic outside the job. He is planing to use work ethic to climb the ladder as a worker & conquer Japan after all
