"How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord" Adds Three More Magical Maidens (NSFW-ish)

Japanese broadcast schedule revealed for upcoming TV anime based on harem fantasy light novel series

 

Three new cast members and the Japanese TV schedule have been revealed for How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord, an upcoming TV anime based on the series of harem fantasy light novels written by Yukiya Murasaki and illustrated by Takahiro Tsurusaki about a young man who finds himself playing the role of a powerful fiend after being summoned into a magical world resembling his favorite video game.

 

The new cast members include:

 

 

Atsumi Tanezaki as Klem, a little girl who loves cookies. A portion of Klem's memory is missing.

 

 

Sayaka Senbogi as Celestine Baudelaire, a human and chairman of the Sorcerers Association. Her group maintains the magic barriers that prevent demonic entities from invading the city of Faltora.

 

 

And Yūka Morishima as Mei, a signboard girl who works for the "Anshin-tei" store in Faltora City. Mei is always ready to flash a cute smile, but she's scary when she gets angry.

 

 

Known in Japanese as Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo Dorei Majutsu, the original How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord light novel series is published in Japan by Kodansha under their Kodansha Lanove Bunko imprint. An English language version of the series is also being published by J-Novel Club, who describe the story as follows:

 

 

In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to a world outside his own-- but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon... but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability <<Magic Reflection>> activates! Instead, it is the girls who become enslaved! Though Takuma may be the strongest Sorcerer there is, he has no idea how to talk with other people. It is here he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game! “Amazing? But of course... I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!” So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!

 

 

The How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord TV anime is directed by Yūta Murano and features animation by Ajiado Animation Studio. The series will broadcast in Japan according to following schedule:
