Spring 2013 was really important anime season, and it had a Big 3. They were Attack on Titan, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (Oregairu), and The Devil is a Part-Timer!. The first two went on to have very successful multi-season runs beloved by fans. Unfortunately, the other member of that Big 3 never even had any second season despite popular demand… until now. During the first day of the “Kadokawa Light Novel Expo 2020” event, they finally announced that Satoshi Wagahara’s The Devil is a Part-Timer! light novel series will have a second TV anime season! They even released a new PV:
Much of the cast will be reprising their roles for the new season, and they are:
- Ryota Ohsaka as Sadao Maou/Demon King Satan
- Youko Hikasa as Emi Yusa/Heroine Emilia
- Nao Touyama as Chiho Sasaki
- Yuki Ono as Shirou Ashiya/Demon General Alciel
- Hiro Shimonoas Hanzou Urushihara/Demon General Lucifer
- Kanae Itou as Suzuno Kamazuki
They also revealed the new anime’s key visual:
Expect the staff to reveal more details about the second season in the days to come. Here is how MyAnimeList describes the first season’s story:
Striking fear into the hearts of mortals, the Demon Lord Satan begins to conquer the land of Ente Isla with his vast demon armies. However, while embarking on this brutal quest to take over the continent, his efforts are foiled by the hero Emilia, forcing Satan to make his swift retreat through a dimensional portal only to land in the human world. Along with his loyal general Alsiel, the demon finds himself stranded in modern-day Tokyo and vows to return and complete his subjugation of Ente Isla—that is, if they can find a way back!
Powerless in a world without magic, Satan assumes the guise of a human named Sadao Maou and begins working at MgRonald’s—a local fast-food restaurant—to make ends meet. He soon realizes that his goal of conquering Ente Isla is just not enough as he grows determined to climb the corporate ladder and become the ruler of Earth, one satisfied customer at a time!
Whether it’s part-time work, household chores, or simply trying to pay the rent on time, Hataraku Maou-sama! presents a hilarious view of the most mundane aspects of everyday life, all through the eyes of a hapless demon lord.
