Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu

Synopsis

When it comes to the fantasy MMORPG Cross Reverie, none can match the power of the Demon King Diablo. Possessing the game's rarest artifacts and an unrivaled player level, he overpowers all foolish enough to confront him. But despite his fearsome reputation, Diablo's true identity is Takuma Sakamoto, a shut-in gamer devoid of any social skills. Defeating hopeless challengers day by day, Takuma cares about nothing else but his virtual life—that is, until a summoning spell suddenly transports him to another world where he has Diablo's appearance! In this new world resembling his favorite game, Takuma is greeted by the two girls who summoned him: Rem Galeu, a petite Pantherian adventurer, and Shera L. Greenwood, a busty Elf summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual in an attempt to subjugate him, but the spell backfires and causes them to become his slaves instead. With the situation now becoming more awkward than ever, Takuma decides to accompany the girls in finding a way to unbind their contract while learning to adapt to his new existence as the menacing Demon King.

Ever wanted to know what it feels like to own someone? I’m not talking about people who you hire or a business partner. I’m talking about if you actually hold ownership of someone like a slave. Taking on the role of a protagonist in a fantasy world is no easy task. Even for a guy like Sakamoto Takuma, he may be an experienced gamer but he’s never been equipped to deal with a life changing event such as being transported into the very game he played. After becoming “Diablo”, he learns that the hard way.

Isekai Maou no Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu (otherwise known as How Not to Summon a Demon Lord) is exactly what it looks like – a show about a demon lord who gets summoned into this fantasy world. The juicy part of the show is that the main protagonist possesses a “slave-turning” skill that allows him to enslave others. True to its form, this anime sets off so many damn red flags that it became of those cases of being so bad, it’s almost good.

I’m not going to lie. This show glorifies fan service at any chances it gets so be prepared for a whole feast of them. The first few episodes makes it clear that the two main girls – Shera and Rem serves as Ms. Fanservice. It doesn’t help with the fact that around their neck are collars standing as proof of their enslavement status. As a guy with poor social skills, Diablo have trouble building a connection with his two slaves at first. My early impression of Diablo is that he is a joke of himself. Being a Demon Lord with such power is like an unholy gift but he doesn’t truly know what to do with it. Furthermore, Shera and Rem doesn’t know anything about him and vice versa. However, it does show that Shera adores Diablo and is “impressed” by his skills. Then, there’s Rem who shows little respect to Diablo at first but does warm up to him as they get to know each other more. In a stereotypical manner, they grow closer together and seems the two main girls even develop feelings toward their master. Yet, Diablo still has to hold his urges of lust whenever he gets caught into compromised positions. If you’ve seen any Isekai series of similar nature, you’ll know what I mean.

As I watched more and more of this anime, it seems the show does take on a more emotional side once it decided to focus more on the characters. Despite his poor social skills, Diablo shows a genuine caring side towards his two slaves. This is shown in later episodes when he decides to risk everything to save Shera. He even begins to enjoy his new life as a Demon Lord and make the best of it without jeopardizing others. His main goal transform from ruling the world to being a trustworthy master to his slaves. By nature, it’s a peculiar sense to develop a character but somewhat works this way because of Diablo’s personality. He’s a haughty guy with a lot of pride on his side but sometimes drops his guard when it involves his two slaves. On the other hand, I think it’s a cheap ploy by the creators to get the audience to like Diablo. Because let’s face it, Diablo is still a generic character that adheres to wish fulfillment fantasies. So many isekai series pulls this trick from the book and it’s impossible to overlook this show’s pitfalls.

Unfortunately, I also have to proclaim that it’s very easy to overlook the other characters outside of the main trio. We got characters like the Fallen (Demonic Being) Edelgard making her debut early on. Does anyone actually care about this character? She speaks broken sentences and plays more of the role of a combatant. Oh and I can’t forget how absurd her personality changes from time to time depending on who she faces with. Other characters like Sylvie and Alicia represents archetypes like the guild master and honorable knight you can find in almost any video game. And of course, they had to add Glebsklem into the show so that the cast would be complete with a half-naked loli. That’s not even the worst part. If we look at the antagonists of the series, they are what really holds the character cast back. Every villain in the show are one dimensional characters with their own self-interest and greed. Some even have other sins that pushes the line of the show’s censorship. I can’t fandom how these antagonists were made except perhaps to tests the limits of Diablo’s powers. The obvious result is that Diablo overcomes his obstacles because how overpowered he is. It’s lack of creativity 101 that hardly takes any effort for anyone to make these type of characters.

Ajia-Do worked on a variety of genres before but this is their first full TV anime adaptation based on a light novel. By technical standards, it looks vibrant and matches with what an isekai world should look like. The high fantasy elements of the magical creatures and archaic structures are within expectation. Plus, some of the action scenes carries sufficient details to prove what Diablo is capable of. However, be aware of the show’s fan service. In some episodes, it really pushes the envelope with the “action”. Scenes that includes fingering, sexual power restoration, and tentacles made this anime look like a cartoony porn. It’s also impossible to not take eyes off of Shera’s body. The camera plays around her breasts like they have a life of its own. Clothes are also blown off constantly for specific “reasons” that puts Rem to shame. Character expressions often include their screams of passion in moments of ecstasy. Thanks to the talents of the VA, they make those scenes look more lascivious than they should.

There’s an unwritten rule where people drop episodes for a show after three episodes or less. For Isekai Maou, it will most likely take one. It’s a break or take for first impression and if you’re coming in with low expectations, then do yourself a favor and hit that drop button. If you make it beyond those passionate screams of our slave girls, then this may be a sexy rollercoaster. The main trio of Diablo, Shera, and Rem carries this anime so get used to that. Does that still make this anime an enjoyable experience in the end? Hell no.

Here we have another isekai-harem LN adaptation, as is though shared with many similar series of the kind, and this season alone, This is the ONLY Isekai LN adaptation that you should watch this season (and going forward) as it's largely competent on the likes of Overlord (similar but different)? And also, just go for the uncensored version of the anime, that always helps if you love insane amounts of fanservice with boobage, ecchi shots and whatnot! You can thank me later. Story: Here we go again...yet another "transported into another world" (more like self-inserted) fantasy series of some random dude who managed to beat the game, know its innards, specs and whatnot, and then suddenly finding himself IN the actual game! With a bunch of girls that are reverse-magical slaved and self-locked into our MC with boob touches and physics, follow the Demon King Diablo on his every step of the way, going towns, encountering allies and enemies, showing off his OP skills and "tactics" every so often while finding a solution to rid those chains! And who doesn't want to watch a perverted MC have his subconscious way with "hit-and-miss" intentions of the harem? The only difference in Isekai Maou: there's actual progressive story and subversion plot points that are oh-so-predictable yet satisfying to watch. It's like you're watching an actual playthrough of the game itself! You probably thought that the usual Isekai cliché troupes will work against it, but nope! With decent execution, and the overtime boringness that sets in (your tastes vary, I'm not gonna judge), at least it manages to keep the investment level of the series high like the Almighty, and best of all? It doesn't feel cringeworthy whatsoever, even with the forced humor. Characters: For a cheap knock-off of the most OP character (reference to a certain Death March), Sakamoto Takuma a.k.a Summoning Master and Demon King, Diablo, is both a visual treat and a sight to behold. Other than his OP skills which have the "woah" factor, at least he has the audacity to act with the "sensitivity and righteousness" behaviour while playing the Demon King act. And for that, he gets a thumbs up for not being the (fill in the blank)-AF character like so many other mediocre series does with the archetype. Anyone who has been burnt out with Diablo's character will appreciate that he stands out in the most fitting way possible. On to the girls then: Shera the Elf with giant boobs. What more could you want with her EVERY movement with oh-so-jiggly boobs that always make Diablo cringe at the thought of it? More or less, all the subversive moments of squeezing boobs just makes it more worthwhile to watch this far none. Rem the flat-chested Neko. As if someone with large boobs isn't enough, how about one with a flat chest, but also "smooth to the touch" that makes you wanna cringe so hard? Not to mention, her lolicon look and the cat-fested ears just made it so that she could orgasm at the sight of sucking and caressing her gentle ears with hot blemishes! Klem, the TRUE Demon Lord of Cross Reverie, looks menacing at first glance, but here comes another loli girl with the love of biscuits (or most likely any satiating food HAHA), kinda liked her character for the most part, even with the eventual full-power release. The other characters are reminiscent of the vibes that are founded by the ironic SAO-ish quirks: Alicia, working for the Imperial Army, she comes off as being an aloof female warrior. At first, her attempts of working with Diablo, Shera and Rem come across as just another insert-yourself-into-the-harem cliché, but once the "true" Demon King is unleashed, her "ignorance is bliss" attitude starts showing with intensity. So much so that even the OP scenes outlined this (if you looked hard enough). Keera, the evil brother of Shera, the S&M specialist. No words can describe him, as per to a certain mad scientist on the other side. He is truly despicable to the point of no return. "All I wanted for family is you"? Yea right, you degenerate piece of shit! Every troupe here clearly exemplifies the conglomeracy of it all, with this one character. Art and animation: Ajia-do Animation Works is an obscure studio that has a long history like veterans Toei Animation or Sunrise, but their repertoire of works are subpar, with the only well-received series being Pierrot's follow-up of Emma Season 2, and that was back in 2007. So if you're an anime studio nut like myself, think of this obscure studio as the equivalent of Pierrot in terms of animation quality, just mildly better. However, with Isekai Maou, there is the Ajia-do trait of limited animation quality (especially with noticeable long-distance/range backgrounds), but it is vastly improved and the 2D artwork doesn't disappoint. Along with the action sequences, it doesn't give off the feel that the producers cheaped out on both the art and animation. To quote an example, check out the catchy OP sequence where Shera's giant "knockers" boobs slap each other for an insane 2 second-cut (near the chorus part). Now that is attention to detail. Overall, good art and animation, and props to the production staff. Music: The OST is one of the tolerable ones this season: An all-star female VA casting for the OP and Yuu Serizawa with the help of HoneyWorks' CHiCO for the ED. Just knowing that the veteran seiyuus all sound so good, you can't help but to be immersed in the OST. From the battle scenes that are full or intensity to the action that keeps pumping non-stop, honestly I enjoyed myself with all that is to offer here. Overall, Isekai Maou is a series that at least does the tri-factor (Isekai, LN-harem, ecchi) genres some justice, and with the original source material comes criticisms that many people will pass off as some unnecessary filler. But to be quite honest, while I don't love this anime, the enjoyment factor is really where it's at to see these characters mingle with a story that's so stupid, it's entertaining much. To the haters, at least give this a second chance or something, I promise you, it's not as taxing as many mediocre isekai series out there.
