The Devil is a Part-Timer, known in Japanese as “Hataraku Maou-sama!” (はたらく魔王さま!), is a hilarious manga and anime series that blends elements of comedy, fantasy, and slice-of-life. Created by Satoshi Wagahara and illustrated by 029, The Devil is a Part-Timer follows the misadventures of Satan, the ruler of the demon world, as he finds himself living and working in modern-day Tokyo.

The story begins with Satan, the fearsome ruler of the demon world, being defeated by the hero Emilia and forced to flee to modern-day Tokyo through a magical portal. Stripped of his powers and resources, Satan adopts the identity of Sadao Maou and begins working at a fast-food restaurant called MgRonald’s to make ends meet.

As Sadao navigates the challenges of working in the human world, he encounters a variety of eccentric characters, including his loyal demon general Alciel (Shiro Ashiya) and the quirky angel Emi Yusa (Emilia Justina), who followed him through the portal to ensure he doesn’t cause trouble on Earth.

Despite their initial animosity, Sadao and Emi find themselves forming an unlikely alliance as they navigate the complexities of human society and confront various supernatural threats that arise in Tokyo. Along the way, they encounter otherworldly beings, eccentric neighbors, and comedic misunderstandings that add to the chaos of their daily lives.
