i really hope that she and Maou end up together tho!! they have my support!


Chiho is way too damn cute for you, that's all. Her voice actor's vocal quality makes me swoon whenever Chiho talks.

I could laugh at this for hours.



But she is really cute when she's serious.



If there's any shipping going on I'd assume:

Chiho x Sadao (Satan).
Emi x Shiro (Alciel).
Suzuno x Hanzo (Lucifer).

They all just seem to match somehow.

You know there has got to be a moe element for contrasting characters .

All the characters in this anime are all very different but the pairing above seem to work for Emi and Alciel and Suzuno and Lucifer

chiho just seems like too flat (oh, ironic wordings) of a character. the only purpose she serves is as a romantic interest to Sadao and rival for emilia. pretty much nothing more.

or I guess you could say.. she's the "moe" element of the show that doesn't even need a "moe" element.

I think Chiho makes the show in a lot of cases where Sadao and Emi kind of struggle to fill their "main character" shoes, quite conversely. Especially in Emi's case. She's the hero, probably the most important secondary lead character but we've seen very little development out of her. In the meanwhile we see a lot of Chiho and she's too adorable to watch as she crushes over Satan. Flat is the last word I'd use to describe her (figuratively or literally).



Also, I think her role is actually pretty unique. She's the one single completely human character who knows that he is the devil and at this point various details about the whole Enta Isle cast, yet still has a crush on him and happily befriends the others. She sees past all the dirty and dark business of yesterday and loves him for who he is now. She's a pure hearted soul, it's ridiculously cute. Despite how cute she is, she still has a competitive, testy, and just plain silly side that we see very frequently with her random faces. She's one of the most hilarious characters to watch when she is flustered or nervous. She's an element of comedy the show would definitely miss if she weren't in it.

To be honest this show is shaping up to be in the all time top 3 for me when it comes to comedy anime, the injection of sci-fantasy with the whole satan x hero stuff is done so perfectly in my opinion. I love the animation and the characters to me are all so very unique and well fleshed out as individual characters which is actually quite uncommon for an anime to achieve.

indeed Chiho's role is definitely the inbetween character among the two parties and of course they made her a moe character with the Big chest. I feel she a has a key role in all of this.

JUst by listening to the conversation and interactions , I am noticing things that shows that this anime is really written well with its comedy .The timing is just right. The contrasting characters are blending very well in the orchestra of comedy.

I too feel the characters in this anime are all very interesting and engaging which is one reason whiy I liked this anime a lot. Plus no one os realy annoying to me.

So this show really is just SoL isn't it.

Albeit a unique twist on it but I keep waiting for something to happen.

Well clearly we're in a bit of lull, but I think there's a pretty clear exposition made. The devil is in modern day Tokyo working at the local fast food place, the angel hero is call support in the same city, and there's a bunch of people from Enta Isle who now want them both dead so the enemy of my enemy is my friend, yada yada.

We just had a fan service episode so understandably things are quiet but I think it's pretty clearly building up. Especially since they did that reveal at the end of episode 10, and some decent character building on Suzuno's part in regards to her impression of Maou.

Yeah for last 2 epsiodes , we are definitely going to see some action becuase of Mr Sentuky manager aka you know what...

but the way I see this anime , its more like a hybrid slice of life comedy magical anime since its all about the working Maou sama and his new life which he find refreshing comparing to his warring, destroy them all Demon King persona in Ente Esla.

And I said before, the characters are engaging and for a 12 episode anime, not all characters will be developed fully to a very deep level but to me its good enough.

I mean I would like to see an OVA here and there about the characters more if there is a chance especially on Maou sama himself becuase his transformation to a laid back human was done lighting speed and I want to know more what he was like before that could give us a clue on his personality how he can accept his current life so easily ,. .

.. eventually the question is if and when he gains enough power to go back . will he go back and what would he do if he does?
Or will he go back and forth as he please ,since he love the humans in this world ?

and or maybe conquer the world via MgRonald which what he said and ..with some demon power to spare ...lol

Actually, this process mostly occurred after his arrival to Tokyo, the show just skipped it. If you'll recall in the first episode he was still very much "other-wordly" in nature. Moving towards episode 2 they pretty much skipped the whole transitional process. I think it's fair to assume that previous to this he was as devious as the other characters are seemingly impressioned that he was before they realize he has changed. Remember though that he wasn't necessarily "evil" per say back on Enta Isle, the war was presented as an equal aggression war, where both sides were just simply unable to coexist with one another. Maou wasn't like a flippant Hitler type character. Think Horde and Alliance in WoW. Neither were bad, they just couldn't get along.

I have been rewatching or just listening to the anime while I am working on Maou sama cape and I am rediscovering new things here and there.

but I still want to see an OVA or an episode just about Maou past , as I assume he has lived for a very long time , leading all the demons and monsters , minions and taking over the world and in Emi's words , he was ruthless and didnt care about human lives ..... so it would good to see his past and what about him that made him who he is now.

and then the humans have there secret weapon, the half angels , magicians etc and started a war against and

For him to be defeated also makes me wonder , how that that happened,not unless there was threachery from within.

well back to work
