Tanya Degurechaff is a young soldier infamous for predatorial-like ruthlessness and an uncanny, tactical aptitude, earning her the nickname of the "Devil of the Rhine." Underneath her innocuous appearance, however, lies the soul of a man who challenged Being X, the self-proclaimed God, to a battle of wits—which resulted in him being reincarnated as a little girl into a world of magical warfare. Hellbent on defiance, Tanya resolves to ascend the ranks of her country's military as it slowly plunges into world war, with only Being X proving to be the strongest obstacle in recreating the peaceful life she once knew. But her perceptive actions and combat initiative have an unintended side effect: propelling the mighty Empire into becoming one of the most powerful nations in mankind's history.

Imagine if Hitler was 9 years old, a girl, and A GODDAMN MAGE.


Evil loli against the world without mercy, psychotic thrill ride of exhilarating madness, needs a second season!


I love it. My only real complaint is that despite the name the first episode is the only time Tanya does anything that can be called “evil”.


Hyperbolic and savage, a wicked sense of humour and a keen sense for human nature allow for a thoroughly entertaining show.


When Hitler is born and is a small girl


я без шуток захотел пойти в армию после этого


Never really felt much of connection with our lead or anyone else in the show for that matter. Cool idea but, not much else.
