The devil is a part timer is a new release by Netflix is of the old series with a different plot setting. It is a popular series which feature the demon and the king and they both are loved by the audience. In this edition, the characters are introduced as school students who are struggling to live through their student lives. Chiho is also included and as usual, she has a crush on Maou.
Introduction to the story
In the first volume, we get to see that Maou wants to hold a good position in the school and also dreams of staying at the top in the high school which he is currently studying. He has a self-centred nature and all that he can think is about himself. Maou being a student of the high school thinks of getting elected as the president of the student council and this way he will be able to rule the students of the school and also everyone will listen to him only, and thus he will also be able to rule the whole world by dominating the people.
To achieve his dreams and get through his desire he does a lot of things to please everyone around. He takes a number of responsibilities and also helps at the school stores so that the teachers get impressed by his actions and he would also become popular amongst the students.
Emi is also a student just like Maou and she is introduced in the play. Out of nowhere, to everyone’s surprise, she just enters and claims Maou that he is the devil king and that she will not leave him and also promises him that she would slay him one day. Just because the setting is of a school so Emi is being understood as the crush of Mahou by the audience and also they think that Chiho will help them both get along together.
Chiho and Emi together started to follow Mahou everywhere and this puts him in a situation where we get to know about the good side of him as a human. While they were on a field trip Emi falls off a cliff due to her carelessness, and the devil king Satan without thinking even for a second for his life tries to save her by jumping off too. After the scene Emi, Chiho and Mahou realize that they are going off track and far from their class and must find their way.
This release of the series The Devil Is A Part Timer Season 2 is quite different and brings in a great twist for the audience, the characters manage to keep their personalities as it is the only difference that is being found in the setting of the play. Maou and his servant are found living in the Janitor’s closet and they are not found living in the apartment in high school.
Ashiya is also working there as a Janitor and in return, she is being given free room and board. We do not see much change in Vol. 1 as this is close enough to her role in the series as a housewife. Emi is also found as cantankerous. Chiho’s character is found just as it was and she is always found disturbing the relationship of Emi and Mahou.
This part is set in a bit fast pace and people will enjoy reading it if they are already familiar with the series. This part is highly recommended since it is being presented with some great twist moments keeping the important elements on their place and thus making the series enjoyable than ever. This will definitely keep you interested in its next part that is Vol. 2.
