Anime name: The Devil Is a Part-Timer! (also known as Hataraku Maō-sama!)
Genre(s): Comedy, Fantasy
Lauren’s Like Rating: 10/10 (LOVED it! This is grade A comedy, this is gold, not just cheap laughs like so many other comedies out there. This entire anime is brilliant and well written. Also, the characters, especially these two, are complete dorks (I mean that as a good thing), I love it.)
Character (s): Satan Jacob/Sadao Maou, Alciel/Shiro Ashiya
*Mild Spoiler warning*
Satan Jacob/Sadao Maou is the demon king of Enta Isla. He has sent his army to conquer much of the humans’ land, and as the person who gave the orders, he is responsible for thousands of deaths, if not more. He is forced to retreat when the Hero, Emilia defeats his generals and storms his castle, so he creates a portal to Earth, winds up in Japan, and discovers that he actually really likes humans. So he adopts the name Sadao Maou and gets a job at MgRonalds. He takes this job very seriously by always being super polite and efficient, and also by teaching and rescuing employees as needed. He would do everything within his power to protect and help the humans, even if it was to his own detriment, behavior that is quite odd for a demon king. This perplexes many of the other characters.
Alciel/Shiro Ashiya is a demon general who is very loyal to Satan and would do anything for him. Once they arrive in Japan, he adopts the name Shiro Ashiya and finds other ways to serve his king… He does laundry, cooking, and any task requested, no matter how insignificant. He takes all of this very seriously and is prone to getting emotional if he feels he has failed a task.
