The Devil Is a Part-Timer! (also known as Hataraku Mao-sama!) is a light novel series written by Satoshi Wagahara and illustrated by Oniku. The series debuted back in February of 2011 on ASCII Media Works and has 24 volumes so far. The story revolves around the demon king named Sadao Maou who seeks to conquer the world of Ente Isla. He is confronted by the Hero Emilia and he is forced into a corner. In order to escape, he opens a gate that transports him to modern-day Tokyo, Japan. In order to get back to Ente Isla, he must first learn to survive in this new and strange land. What's a demon lord to do? Get a part-time job, of course. Satan, The Great Demon Lord... finds part-time employment at a fast-food restaurant called MgRonald. An anime adaptation of the manga was produced by White Fox and was directed by Naoto Hosoda. The anime series aired from April to June of 2013 and ran for 13 episodes.
Given that the premise of the series is quite... out of this world, you'd be forgiven to think that it would not be received well. In fact, the was quite well-received by fans and critics alike. It was quite a fresh take on the established Satan being the ultimate evil trope. This show revels in the mundane and the ordinary and does a great job of doing so. It's funny, well-written, and despite being such a short series, managed to pack a good punch. That said, being such a short series, some were expectedly left wanting more.
