When it comes to the fantasy MMORPG Cross Reverie, none can match the power of the Demon King Diablo. Possessing the game's rarest artifacts and an unrivaled player level, he overpowers all foolish enough to confront him. But despite his fearsome reputation, Diablo's true identity is Takuma Sakamoto, a shut-in gamer devoid of any social skills. Defeating hopeless challengers day by day, Takuma cares about nothing else but his virtual life—that is, until a summoning spell suddenly transports him to another world where he has Diablo's appearance! In this new world resembling his favorite game, Takuma is greeted by the two girls who summoned him: Rem Galeu, a petite Pantherian adventurer, and Shera L. Greenwood, a busty Elf summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual in an attempt to subjugate him, but the spell backfires and causes them to become his slaves instead. With the situation now becoming more awkward than ever, Takuma decides to accompany the girls in finding a way to unbind their contract while learning to adapt to his new existence as the menacing Demon King.

Encoder's Notes

Simple descaled encode of VULCAN’s BD remux which includes JPBD video, UKBD audio and subtitles from Asakura and Astral. Both tracks are included so feel free to pick whatever.

Man, remuxers make my work as an encoder so much easier by compiling all the best sources. Respect++

It’s like a budget version of Overlord


Waiting for a hentai spin-off


A master class in collecting all the overdone and boring cliches into one place.


Another trashy isekai show, except its a bit self aware and just enough over-the-top to be this seasons guilty pleasure.


Why am i not surprised that this one is just another borderline hentai show…


Its pretty entertaining.

    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
