Anime Hataraku Mao-Sama! (The Devil is a Part-Timer!)is adapted from light novel series by Wagahara Satoshi. The story follows demon lord Satan who is on the verge of conquering his alternate world when he is whisked away, transported to modern day Tokyo. Now, under his earth name Sadao Mao, he finds himself working part-time at a fast food restaurant. He has plans to conquer this new world of Japan but must over-come his first challenge – move up to a full-time employee. Additionally he must content with Heroine Emilia who has also arrived in Japan in pursuit of the demon lord Satan. (ed. plot sounds very funny if not a bit like Ika Musume (Squid Girl) meets Wagnaria!! (Working!!) – looking forward to it!).


The anime is produced by WHITE FOX and stars Ryota Ohsaka (Eita in Oreshura) as Satan/Sadao Mao and Yoko Hikasa as Emilia/Emi. The anime begins airing in Japan on Tokyo MX late-night April 4th 2013. No information yet on if it will be simulcast outside of Japan but check our Crunchyroll updates page for possible updates.

Minami Kuribayashi will provide the opening theme for the anime with her 31st single “ZERO!!” – more details.

Single “Sankaku ep” comes on one CD-only edition with 3 tracks so far planned. No cover jackets or possible bonuses yet revealed so come back to Comtrya Sugoi for updates.
