When the lord of demons and his horde waged war against the humans in their realm, a hero vanquished their army. Cornered, the Devil fled through an interdimensional portal to Earth. He vows to one day reign again, but until then... he needs a job!
|The Devil Arrives in Sasazuka|
|Romaji||Maō, Sasazuka ni Tatsu|
|Translation||Devil King, Standing in Sasazuka|
In a world different from our own, a Demon Lord named Satan and his four generals waged war on the humans, looking to conquer all known lands. Unfortunately for him, a hero rose up to destroy his armies and eventually face Satan himself at his castle on Ente Isle. With nowhere left to turn, Satan escaped into a magic portal with one of his generals, Ashiel, and ended up in modern-day Tokyo.
Unfortunately, Satan and Ashiel discover that this world is very different from the one they left. Magic barely exists here, and being an evil Demon Lord won't help them survive now that he's been transformed into a human body. With few other options, Satan takes on the name "Maou Sadao" and gets a job at a nearby McDonalds to help himself and Ashiel establish a base of operations from their rent-controlled apartment.
After dealing with a small crisis at work, Maou manages to earn himself a promotion, but on the way back home he discovers that the hero who nearly defeated him has come to the same world.
