    魔王様、リトライ!

    A show where the administrator of an MMORPG is isekaied into the world of the game after it goes offline for good, and he becomes an overpowering demon lord.

    Airs: Wednesday, July 3, 2019

    Studio: Ekachi Epilka

    Oono Akira, a working adult that can be found anywhere, was transported to a different world while logged into a character known as the "Demon Lord" in a game he manages. There, he meets a girl with a disabled leg and they begin to travel together, but there's no way that others will leave a "demon lord" with such overwhelming strengths alone. While being targeted by countries and saints that are trying to subdue the demon lord, they cause turmoil wherever they go.

    Demon lord on the outside, normal person on the inside, a misunderstanding type fantasy!

    Episode 1

    A Demon Lord from now on.

    So it begins with Akira being isekaied into the world of the game that just went offline much like in Overlord, except that he's an admin rather than a player, and now he's expected to be some sort of savior as the demon lord Hakuto. There he meets Aku, and she certainly has been through a lot. Seeing that he is the demon lord that natrually there will be others gunning for his head, and that's exactly wh happens there at the end. Pretty much, the first episode is a lot of setup there, and it just comes across as being generic with Hakuto getting a girl, being overpowered, and other stuff. I wasn't expecting much seeing that a no-name studio is animating this, but at least it's holding my interest for the time being.

    So as usual, trial period rules apply. This was low on my interest list, but it's my obligation to give all shows a reasonable shot.

      Episode 2

      There's no such thing as a good demon lord?

      And here comes Luna, a Holy Maiden who isn't exactly acting like one. Hakuto made quick work of her, and from that embarrassment, she comes after Hakuto. As nice as Hakuto is, he's still a Demon Lord, the natural enemy of a Holy Maiden, and Luna's reactions are quite funny. Luna sure doesn't have her head on straight seeing that she came to him when things went wrong.
