Whether its Maou Sadao turning into a beast or Sentucky Fried Chicken causing trouble for MgRonalds, Hataraku Maou-sama! never ceases to be funny and entertaining.

Hataraku Maou-sama! Episode 8 Impressions

Poor Chiho.

LOL. He’s sleeping in boxes now.

Lucifer in the background being annoying as usual.

He did not just…

Sasaki Chiho hataraku

Poor Chiho :(

After the sudden end from last episode, Chiho isn’t just going to succumb to the lunchbox that was given to Maou. And while we’re on that note, I must say that Hataraku Maou-sama! really likes to end the episode at the weirdest times. But anyways, you can really only expect the most “normal,” yet hilarious situations in this anime. From simple things like meals, the characters like Urushihara make this different from similar situations show in other anime. I have to admit, however, that it’s quite tiring seeing Maou Sadao be completely dense towards how Chiho feels towards him. It’s just… Agh.



Sasaki Chiho confession


You better give a proper reply.

Sasaki Chiho blushing panicking

Wow. Chiho just plainly declared her love for Maou. Maou’s reaction towards it is actually quite like him and I’m glad that he doesn’t become all flustered. We’d all expect a response, of course, but we all know that such a convenient scenario would not happen without something getting in the way. Still, Suzuno’s reaction to Maou’s actions is the same as Emi’s except a bit amplified since she just came from Ente Isla. Who could blame her? A demon overlord getting some love from humans and being kind towards them? Who wouldn’t be taken aback by that? I guess it’s good that she did a terrible job at “assassinating” him, but I’m still not sure how I would feel if she becomes a love interest. Though, by the looks of things, it doesn’t appear to have anything going in that direction.

Emi Yusa and Suzuno Kamazuki


Now that you mention it…

Emi Yusa

Cristia Bell angry


Suzuno Kamazuki TV


Yes, I’m sure that’s the case.

Oh man. That misunderstanding. I knew it was going to happen, and it plays out… nicely I suppose. The way they’re just yelling in the middle of the station and how everyone must be thinking “oh my, it must be boyfriend problems” or something like that is just like how arguments over misunderstandings have been portrayed in the past. And while Suzuno may be not innocent in the sense of the word, she is really clueless about everything which makes it even stranger how Emi and Maou, and everyone got used to the modern world so quickly. Good times.

Sentucky fried chicken


Next season, Maou and Ashiya move to Greenland.

Oh God. Oh God.

Sarue Mitsuki creepy


NO. SENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN WILL NEVER PREVAIL OVER THE GLORY THAT IS MGRONALDS. God dammit. As if MgRonalds will lose to someone like James. He needs to blast off right now and annoy some adventurers elsewhere. God he pisses me off. He’s not nearly as awesome as James actually is so he should just be buried in a desert on the other side of the world. Then again… it may be interesting to see Maou and everyone move to Greenland and- NO. MGRONALDS WILL PREVAIL. YEP.

Emi Yusa crazy face

I think you’re being really unfair.

Yuusha emilia hataraku hero angry


Great, even Suzuki is misunderstanding the situation. At this point It’s probably better off that she’s actually in love with Maou or something to get rid of the misunderstandings. But damn that manager dude is creepy. I’m surprised that no one has filed a restraining order or notified local police officers of this creepy, creepy… extremely creepy person. I can’t even tell if he’s genuinely a creep or just pretending. Nah, no one can be that creepy by willing oneself to do so.


Ashiya Shirou and Maou Sadao hug lucifer

*Sniff *Sniff

Oh my God fucking Ashiya is the best character in this anime and probably this year except ERU ERUFU from Valvrave or something. He’s just so amazing. Standing up for his Maou, sacrificing himself for the survival of the household. How amazing. HOW MOTHERLY. Tears should rightfully fall. Urushihara is a heartless person for not even feeling affected at such a heartwarming embrace between the two at such a time of distress.


Ashiya Shirou


Maou Inc. Construction

Oh man.

Yusa Emi construction worker Sadao and Ashiya failure

LOL. Just eating takoyaki and she just shows up.

LOL. Just eating takoyaki and she just shows up.

LOL. That one employee’s voice is just… Hataraku Maou-sama! really likes to insert random things here and there. But anyways, we can’t overlook what seems to be the perfect story of the battle between Ashiya and Maou in the face of the terrible tyrant known as Emi who overtook all their construction work. What a touching story. One of survival. One of FIGHTING THE BITTERNESS OF LIFE. Please make this a side-story, WhiteFox. That would be absolutely amazing to watch and I’m sure many would agree.

That guy with the thick lips. OH GOD.

Maou Sadao battle begin

Ooooo yeeeeehh

Tch. As if they could actually compete with the almighty fast food restaurant known as MgRonalds. Not with Maou Sadao in charge anyways. AND GOD DAMMIT THAT EMPLOYEE’S VOICE. Employee of the month after Maou please. Anyways, as if the person who took over almost Ente Isla would lose to a second-rate, James imposter. Heh, don’t understimate the demons from another realm HUMAN. But I guess they’re basically human now too. Uh. Whatever. Oh yeah and then there’s Suzuki and her stuff, but who really cares? It’s all about MGRONALD’S COMEBACK. But looking at the end, and the weird aura along with the craze, I’m almost certain that magic has something to do with it. Well, we’ve had enough humor, it’s time for some seriousness.

Hataraku maou-sama! Episode 8-9 Review

I’m just impressed at how Hataraku continues to be entertaining with all the different stuff thrown in here and there. Just the little things like how Ashiya overhearing Emi’s slander, the employee’s voice, and so on really help the anime overall. Even the characters, while the new one is creepy, gives a lot of flavor to the episodes. I find it easy to just be taken by the pace of it and the episode ends extremely quickly leaving me wanting more. I honestly don’t even have any complaints. The more serious elements that some people are looking for will probably come sooner or later, and even if it doesn’t come, I’m sure it’ll be entertaining enough to warrant a watch. Great episodes and I’m looking forward to how this anime goes up to it’s conclusion!

    What’s the chance that the purple aura comes naturally from the so-called fengshui arrangement of some bamboo trees? I’ll just bet James got something to do with it though

      It could be, but then I don’t know if Emi and Suzuno would still be looking around suspiciously.

    Friday is the best day of the week this season, so much good comes out that day. not mention it already is the best day of the week ~! nice review, do u read the light novel by any chance ?

    • http://www.entravity.com/ Entrav

      For me it’s Thursday. Different time-zones :) It’s been busy on the same day last season too with Zetsuen no Tempest, Psycho-Pass, and so on airing all on the same day followed by Shin Sekai Yori the day after. Was a busy season, but very fun.

      I don’t read the light novel, but I will try to if I get time to since I enjoy the anime quite a bit.
