OK, since no one mentioned it, here the cast list from the PV above:
  • Miyu Tomita as Gabriel White Tenma
  • Saori Ōnishi as Vignette April Tsukinose
  • Naomi Ōzora as Satanichia McDowell Kurumizawa
  • Kana Hanazawa as Raphiel Ainsworth Shiraha

Commenting about the cast, I could imagining Kana Hanazawa as Raphiel already . But I really didn't have any idea about the other. The one that I know is Vignette's VA has been voicing Eriri from Saekano before. But dunno, there's no way she will voicing the cute, gentle, and kind Vignette like how she voicing Eriri.

It seems like French according to webster dictionary.

Episode 1

This was cute. We got Gabriel debuting and her fascination with games in this slice of life/fantasy series.

I've read the manga before and I think the series captures the comedy so far. Studio is by Doga Kobo so the animation style feels familiar. Satanichia's personality is amusing as well, how can anyone ignore her contagious laugh?! That lack of common sense though.

Regardless, I think the episode was funny. Hope they adapt as much as possible even if it's 1-cour. The theme song was also pretty catchy.

Why was there a game which she obviously hadn't been playing already running on her computer?

Geeze, drama queens in this game.

Ah, there's my sweet Vigne. I have to wonder if someone totally got her and Gab's alignments swapped somehow.

Taking the last of the toilet paper from a bathroom stall... whoever did that was the true evil here!

Oh Raphi... it's not nice to toy with the simpleminded.

Good start. Aside from some anime-original setup in the beginning it was pretty much a direct adaptation. Everybody's cute.

Ep 01

Definitely another excellent example of how Doga Kobo really "gets" how to adapt this genre - they are remarkably consistent in their success in doing so!

So much so that it strongly reminded me of how the source material for this particular story is kinda "meh" and the humor is extremely average at best - at least for me.

Why? Not sure. But I do think that those who like the source manga will thoroughly enjoy the adaptation. ^^

Might give one more ep a try, though....

Not massively impressed, but will give it another episode to see if it grows on me or whether they do only have one joke per character.

Episode 01

So we have a bad angel, a good demon, a try hard demon and a sadistic angel. Wtf is up with these angels first of all? And why was there a game opened in her laptop for no reason? She wasn't even playing that game before that. Was that even her laptop? Lol Gabriel teleported her panties by accident and then thought of blowing the trumpet to end the world. That was too much lol. Lol Satania threw in the bottle with the cap on. So evil. And pulling someone's chair out from behind them is so evil it can get you kicked out of hell itself. And Gabriel's room was dirty as hell to the point that she was sending the roach to heaven by killing it lol. The comedy was pretty spot on consistently here.

Doga Kobo have always been inconsistent when it comes to comedy in my view. Gekkan Shojo, New Game, Love Lab were hilarious but then there was Gj Bu, Mikakunin, Sansha Sanyo, Yuru Yuri (height of inconsistent comedy). This episode was pretty hilarious which is a good start. And then there's the cuteness Doga Kobo rocks at. I think I might end staying here.

A demon trying to help an Angel get her life in order and an Angel that enjoys toying around with a demon. Definitely not what you think of when demons and angels come to mind.

Feels like The Devil is a Part Timer, but not as amusing. Dunno why but this just didn't click with me, I'll watch a episode or two more because this is something I usually enjoy

Very nice show. I went in blind and laughed myself silly!

I was also pretty impressed with Naomi Ōzora voice work as Satanichia here, especially since it seems this is her biggest roll to date.

As a Christian who spends much of his God-given time on anime and fanfiction, I can somewhat identify with Gabe. The initial part was both cringey and sympathetic, both for Gabe's disturbing original neatness and her fall from grace. The characters are rather fresh and amusing, but perhaps don't have the charm of classic SOL such as Kinimoza. Definitely giving this a watch anyway.

Calvinist 'Once saved, always saved' churches often view Christians who recant or fall into serious sin in Gabe's terms; they were never truly saved, but 'failen' hypocrites from the start. This can easily happen when someone serves God without joy, until they find something that seems more attractive; but a pillar of the Christian faith is that neither games, good works or anything else is so utterly satisfying as knowing and loving God. Whatever state we're in, God can save us from it.

She'd clicked on a pop-up ad that took her into a web game? Or the devil did it?
