Plot Summary


In regards to the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Sakamoto Takuma boasted an overwhelming strength that was enough for him to be called the Demon King by the other players. One day, he gets summoned to another world with his appearance in the game. There, there are two people that insist "I am the real summon master." Takuma gets slave-turning magic used for summoned beasts cast on him by the girls―

However, the peculiar ability "Magic Reflection" is invoked! The ones that were turned to slaves were the girls!

Takuma was bewildered. He's the strongest magician but, he doesn't have any social skills. Panicking, the first words that came out were the ones that he used inside the game role-playing the Demon King?! "I'm amazing you say? Of course I am. I am Diablo... The one feared as the Demon King!"

This is the story the Demon King (acting) that would soon inspire the world and his other world adventure that he plunges through with his absolute strength, raise the curtain!

It sure would be nice if Crunchyroll actually updated their calendar BEFORE shows aired.

Episode 1

This is pretty much what I have come to expect out of an isekai show. MC is grossly OP upon entering the world, and hitting it up on the cute girls in the other world. In this case, Diablo is OP because of that ring that can reflect magic, which is what he used to turn those girls into his slaves when the reverse was supposed to happen. Pretty stupid show this is, but it does a good job in being funny in doing so. Shera sure has the bust, all while Diablo sure is taking advantage of the situation. And a note to others, don't try to take him down with a level 30 summon as that's no match for somebody who is level 150.

LOL. Oh God, this episode.

I knew what I was expecting already because I read parts of the LN before. The anime kept it more tame but the "cat playing" scene is pretty much as lewd as they tried to get on TV.

Elf girl is annoying so far while the cat girl wants someone to trust in. Diablo is super OP at level 150!

Also, the ED theme song is not safe for work lul

Hikikomori wish fulfillment. But since I am not averse to that type of show I will keep watching.

I did get a laugh out of the whole "She has a secret that's important to the storyline..." bit.
That sort of thing always bites you in the ass in RPGs.

They really would be easier to deal with if you found out about them before the big bads come and kidnap the person for their evil plans.

It's kind of a pain in the ass how much of a waffling herbivore the guy is, but at least his "summoning" netted him a cat girl and three elf girls.

It's hilariously stupid, and I'm probably gonna watch it solely as a turn off my brain and laugh at the silly pictures kinda deal.

Jesus... and here I thought Hanebado blew their budget on jiggles... stacked elf puts them to shame. :blink:

It seems like a good show for spawning memes. Diablo using explosion magic and a main character named Rem.... they're already setting the meme templates up.


All jokes aside it came off as on par to most of the other isekai shows of late. It spent the minimum amount of time setting up the "this is me, now I'm in another world" portion, which I think was for the best. It does seem like Diablo has room to grow as a person and learn social cues. He was going to comfort Rem when she was upset, but good ole hover hand and retreat.

I'm not expecting a 10/10 with this, but it seems fun enough. It will be nice running alongside Overlord, but I don't know enough about this series to know whether world domination will be Diablo's goal in the end.

Don't think this one is for me, aside from the one bit I found funny it's just too much creepy "shut-in Wish fullfillment"

So let's look at the checklist:

- Overpowered main character
-- who is pulled into a generic fantasy world
- The main character quickly assembles a harem
-- including cute slaves
--- who are happy in bondage
- The show exists mainly for fanservice and wish fulfillment fantasy

Well, I think I'll be staying well away from this series. Unless perhaps it has very good humor that is NOT related to fanservice and relationships; or it inexplicably has a solid and compelling adventure plot.
