First half of the episode was cute, pretty much fine. Second half was meh, and rest of the series is set to be like the second half or worse.
The premise could have worked, but they seem set to unfold the series like any other love comedy. Could be worth a 6/10 or so if it really tries, but doesn't look like it's going to be anything new...

Yeah, pretty fun so far.
I don't really know how it will turn, but the setting seems good enough to make a great comedy series.

I decided to pick this one up after seeing some screenshots of the first ep.

Loving it so far! The first half before Maou got a job was especially hilarious. The overly serious comedy they had going was the best, hopefully they don't abandon that for a more generic sol type comedy.

Second ep was pretty good. Though it looks like they'll enter the old harem "let's all live together in one house because of some weird circumstances" setup. Hopefully the remaining two characters are awesome enough to pull this all together, or that
Spoiler :
the person that was shooting at the two turns out to be an actual villain for the story. Keeping some action in this show would be pretty nice.

I LOVED the first two episodes!! <3 Especially the second made me laugh so much :D
I have high expectations for this series. Hope that they won't bring too much romance between Maou and Emilia...don't want it to turn out as a romance-comedy-thing

Pretty awesome ep this week! Perfect blend of comedy and angsty, supernatural stuff. I'm glad it's not going the typical rom com harem route just yet. :up:

To be honest I think that the end of episode 3 was a perfect start for the harem stuff... :uhoh:
That being said, I do enjoy the show a lot. Maou is an awesome character. :)

I have a feeling it's going to be be a rom-com soon enough. I'm enjoying this one though, the comedy is nice and the main character is very likeable. Decent series (Y)

Woah, angst AND feels? This show is really breaking expectations.

New character #1 appears! Can't wait to see everyone else come into this world and whether good vs. evil will have another war in the human world.

MIKI-T WITH THE INTENSE ENTRANCE D=

Mage girl and meathead incoming. This'll make it 3v3 if Lucifer doesn't end up becoming the main villain.

These guys are hitting all the genres in this anime and they're doing it really well so far. Super excited to see what unfolds in the next few eps. :up:

Loving it so far, one of the best shows of the season. I just hope it stays a comedy instead of taking a turn for the serious in the final episodes like a lot of these shows do.
