The demon king and his underling get sucked into the human world. He gets a part time job in fast food.
Yes, this premise has been done to death before. But I thought this episode was great.
Part of what made it so enjoyable is how it continues treating the human world with all the tension and dramatic music of when the kingdom was being overrun by the forces of good. For example, the demon king enters the realty agency and talks to the landlady like he’s entering the final battle. Jokes are funnier if you deliver them seriously.
The other thing that made this show funnier than others with similar concepts is that the demon king and his sidekick didn’t understand Japanese. This allows for more believable miscommunication and jokes like the Katsu Dum.
Of the shows I’ve seen so far, this is what I’m currently looking forward to most. I usually try to avoid blogging comedies though…
