Twelve Days of Anime 2013 – The brilliance of Maou-san and his bid to take over the world one MgRonalds at a time
December 24, 2013 8 Comments
Hataraku Maou-sama turned out to be a very good series, despite having a slightly odd setup that jumped from fantasy world filled with magic and demons to everyday life in Tokyo. What I particularly loved about the series is the way Maou-san continually claimed he was biding his time, waiting for the perfect moment to take over the world, all the while working a minimum wage job at MgRonalds, with Ashiya playing the role of housewife. A nice twist on the classic scene of working husband, and faithful housewife, with the rebellious child coming in the form of Urashihara; throw in Chiho, Emi, and Suzuno and we have the perfectly dysfunctional family and friends.
