Come on, how dense can you get…
Even Lucifer is less oblivious than Maou! This show can deliver some really sharp commentary on the idiocy of other romantic comedies.
I mean, seriously, the guy living in a cardboard box can see what the main character can’t. That’s pretty harsh.
Speaking of Lucifer, I like what they’ve done with him. He lives in a box and doesn’t leave home, but at the same time, he’s probably the most well-adjusted to modern society of any of the characters from the other world. Which is a pretty depressing statement about our own world.
The one thing in anime I will never get sick of: Higurashi faces.
Agreed, this girl is way scarier than all the demons combined.
Ahhh these faces! More please! Also, here we have the classic misunderstanding that romantic comedies are so fond of. But in this case it actually works, because a) it’s a reasonable misunderstanding, that even the viewer is unsure about, b) the show doesn’t beat us over the head with it or make it seem like either character is an idiot, and c) the misunderstanding is resolved in a timely manner.
We’ve seen all this confusion on entering the modern world before in this show. But it’s still funny because Suzuno reacts in a completely different way than the other characters did.
I like where this is going. Really looking forward to the McRonalds and Sentuky Fried Chicken turf wars in the next episode. Let’s witness the beginnings of Maou’s glorious conquest of Earth.
