How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Characters

How not to summon a demon lord characters

Isekai anime, a genre that revolves around someone being summoned into a fantasy world and overpowering everything in their way. This particular series is based on light novels written by Yukiya Murasaki and illustrated by Takahiro Tsurusaki under the Kodansha Publishing brand. It has also been adapted into manga by Naoto Fukuda under the name How not to Summon a Demon Lord, The King of Darkness Another World Story: Slave Magic, or Isekai Mao to Shokan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu.

The series was a hit and has cracked the top 10 of Crunchyroll’s most popular anime list. It’s a must-watch if you love isekai and magical fantasies.

One day, Takuma Sakamoto, a player of the MMORPG Cross Reverie is summoned into a new world in the appearance of his character, the Demon Lord Diablo. He meets two girls, a Pantherian and an Elf, who claim to have summoned him as their Summoner and demand that he make them his slaves. However, their attempt fails due to the ring he wears that acts as an absolute attack reflector against any magic cast on him.

Despite his strong will and overwhelming power, the Demon Lord is still a novice when it comes to the art of manipulation. While he attempts to charm the girls, Shera and Rem are not easily fooled and call him out on his bluffs. As a result, Gregore is determined to kill the two. Fortunately, they are saved by Shera’s friend Horn who defends them with her spear.
