The Devil is a Part Timer

Story by Edgardo Sanchez

“The Devil is a Part Timer” is a slice of life/fantasy anime about the Devil, ‘Satan,’ having lost his world and his hellish army in the realm of Ente Isla and now finding himself and his only servant in the human world, where he struggles to regain powerful magic that is necessary for him to return home. 

Now reborn into a human body that requires food and shelter, Satan has little choice but to obtain the necessities that all people need — money. For him to possess money, he must apply for a part-time position at a local fast food establishment of McRonald’s.

The title tells you exactly what to expect from a story like this, and boy, is it fun. The “slice of life” element is the heart and soul of the anime, especially with characters like the heroic yet short-tempered Emi Yusa, the Devil’s general and right-hand man Ashiya and the loyal and supportive Chiho. 

Each of these characters is great in their own right, but where their presence shines is in their relationships with the leading man –Sadao Maou, AKA Satan. 

Once the ruler of the Dark Realm is king, he is now described as the “perfect McRonald’s employee” in the eyes of his colleagues, except for Emi, who sees him as her enemy and will stop at nothing to destroy him.

This was a delightful show and one where anyone can kick back and enjoy themselves.

Verdict: 8.5 /10
