Average Rating

Striking fear into the hearts of mortals, the Demon Lord Satan begins to conquer the land of Ente Isla with his vast demon armies. However, while embarking on this brutal quest to take over the continent, his efforts are foiled by the hero Emilia, forcing Satan to make his swift retreat through a dimensional portal only to land in the human world. Along with his loyal general Alsiel, the demon finds himself stranded in modern-day Tokyo and vows to return and complete his subjugation of Ente Isla—that is, if they can find a way back! Powerless in a world without magic, Satan assumes the guise of a human named Sadao Maou and begins working at MgRonald's—a local fast-food restaurant—to make ends meet. He soon realizes that his goal of conquering Ente Isla is just not enough as he grows determined to climb the corporate ladder and become the ruler of Earth, one satisfied customer at a time! Whether it's part-time work, household chores, or simply trying to pay the rent on time, Hataraku Maou-sama! presents a hilarious view of the most mundane aspects of everyday life, all through the eyes of a hapless demon lord.

The dark lord Satan works at McDonalds. Oh Japan, how I love you.


The Devil exists in many forms, he can be your boss, the mailman or a worker at McDonalds.


Comedy with a lovely cast of idiots centered around the demon lord working at McDonalds. I’m a sucker for isekai and reverse isekai.


Ahhhh this one was lovely, wonderful characters, great comedy!


Can’t call it memorable, but it’s a lot funnier than I remember it being.


This is an unexpected mash-up between action and comedy where comedy is focused on. It’s great and I’d rate it 8/10


I didn’t expect this to be a good anime to be honest. I actually liked the characters and the humor was amazing.
