The Devil is a Part-Timer! is an anime adaptation of the light novel series of the same name originally created by Satoshi Wagahara. The anime is directed by Naoto Hosoda, written by Masahiro Yokotani, and produced by Studio White Fox.


For audiences outside of Japan, FUNimation is legally streaming the anime series. Its simulcasts air every Friday at 1:30PM Eastern Time and 2:30PM Central Time starting on April 5, 2013.


In a world different from our own, the Demon Lord Satan sought to conquer all known lands with his army of demonic creatures. However, a brave hero with a small party of adventurers led a counter-attack and drove the demons back, eventually fighting Satan himself at "Ente Isle." With no where else to go, Satan and one of his generals escaped through a magic portal into another world.

Unfortunately, the two of them ended up in modern-day Tokyo, in our world, and being an evil Demon Lord by itself doesn't pay the bills. So while Satan bides his time, he takes on the name "Sadao Maou" and works a part-time job at a local fast-food restaurant. However, it soon turns out that he isn't the only visitor to this world.
