    Once respected as the Demon Realm's second greatest authority, the Demon King's aide, Jahy, ruled her subjects with fear. But when a magical girl attacks and destroys a mystic gem containing massive power, the Demon Realm is destroyed.

    Although she survives, Jahy has lost almost all of her powers and finds herself stranded in the human world with a childlike appearance. In order to gather more mystic gems so that she can permanently restore both her original form and the Demon Realm, Jahy will have to adjust to her new life and deal with everyday problems that she has never experienced before. From working to pay for living expenses to arguing with her landlord whenever her rent is late, the great Jahy will not be discouraged!

    Episode 1

    The Great Jahy is a Part-Timer!

    And so it begins with Jahy living the poor life having been defeated and her homeland destroyed by a magical girl. And in this new world, she's living with the absolute minimum and working part-time as a waitress at a tavern owned by the landlord's sister. Furthermore, she's just a small fry for the most part as she doesn't have much energy to transform into her true form for very long. She tries to hide the truth from her boss, but even so the manager just loves her diminutive form. And then her landlord is quite persistent in making sure Jahy pays her rent, even going as far as to pin her down and chase after her after she skipped out on it, only for her sister to pay for it. Pretty crazy stuff that was as Jahy's attitude sure is a sight to behold, though she's not exactly in an ideal situation. It will be interesting to see what happens when the other characters arrive. I would have thought this would at best get one cour seeing that the manga is ongoing and hasn't gotten relatively far, but it's getting two cours, although it's 20 episodes instead of the usual 24 that explains the late start for this show.

    As usual, the trial period rules are in effect, though this one has a shorter leash due to the late start this show got.

      Episode 2

      She's got everything, while she has nothing.

      Here comes Druj, who is Jahy's right hand man, and while she also ended up on Earth after the Demon Realm collapsed, she's a successful company president and has wealth beyond anybody's imagination. Druj has a ritzy condo, a high-tech security system, and luxury that Jahy could never afford that includes buying a gemstone that Jahy doesn't even realize is not a mana crystal, quite the contrast to Jahy's impoverished life. Pretty funny stuff there, but I just don't get why Jahy can't just live with her, or at the very least Druj could buy her some clothes seeing that running around in an oversized t-shirt isn't exactly getting Jahy anywhere. At the very least, she got a mana crystal in a forest behind the apartment, but it came at a great cost, at least given her terrible financial situation. That was quite a nice introduction to Druj as she makes the show more balanced.

      I'll give this show one more episode before making a decision as due to its late start, I will only give it that.

        Use mana crystals wisely.

        After finding a large mana crystal, Jahy quickly wastes all of its power for menial tasks. While it was a great star for her, unfortunately she ought to know better than to use it like that. And then Druj just so happens to pass by the restaurant and Jahy treats her to a meal, and Druj eats quite a lot of izakaya faire there to run up a bill worth three days of salary. As motivated as she is to make in this world, Jahy continues to be an idiot there as her air of superiority is getting her into a lot of bad situations, and it doesn't even cross her mind to ask Druj to just live with her seeing that they are both extremely close acquaintances and Druj is more than willing to help, but Jahy's pride prevents her from doing it.

          She'll always be #3.

          Here comes Saurva, who has played third fiddle to the demon lord and Jahy, and she doesn't exactly have the brightest mind. She's trying to ruin Jahy's reputation by posing as her, but she inadvertently helps it instead not realizing that she doesn't pay rent, and that she ends up covering for Jahy when she ends up oversleeping. While Jahy is quite the klutz, Saurva is even more so, and it was quite hilarious to see her attempts at bringing Jahy to her knees backfiring so badly.

            Beware of magical girls.

            And here comes the one who destroyed the demonic realm. No, not that crossdresser that ends up being taken into custody by the police. But the magical girl with quite the mean streak there as she found Jahy sick and in bed when she detected a mana crystal there. And while Jahy is a demon, even she catches colds. But while the girl claims to be there on behalf of justice, she doesn't realize she intruded, which the landlord doesn't exactly take very well. Things sure are blown out of proportion there when the magical girl, who is supposed to be on the side of justice, looks far more like a villain than the villain she was tasked with stopping.

              Drinking the night away.

              The magical girl's luck sure is a sight to behold there, whether it be falling into manholes, getting struck by a falling flower pot, or getting pecked by birds it's down in the dumps. But when it comes to taking mana crystals that's another story entirely as she sneaks up on Jahy seeing that her real life appearance is quite different from her magical girl form. So with that mana crystal gone, Jahy is just chugging down on booze and drowning in her sorrows. But the landlord really cheers her up, and the two party as if nothing's wrong. Then they fall asleep on the floor on the tavern with the owner amused at everything that just went down. Quite a silly resolution here, but in any case Jahy really needed that, but more than anything she needs to start thinking things through as her own pride and thick-headedness got her into this mess.

                Getting into shape.

                And now, Jahy is exercising as the Manager is looking to get herself fit, at least until she reaches her diet goal. As much as Jahy would love to get into shape, this is not quite something she can handle in that body of her's. Then there's some jam session going on next door and Jahy gets caught up in it. And then Jahy makes a great friend with the grade schooler Kokoro while searching for mana crystals. Kokoro sure has established something great with Kokoro as those two were meant for each other. Pretty crazy stuff once again as Jahy will need everything she can get given her situation and self-inflicted wounds.

                  Bathing in luxury.

                  And Jahy gets to experience luxury thanks to Druj as she has amassed quite a fortune, and then she brings in Jahy to speak, though with the number of interruptions going on that it was all about Druj rubbing it in. And then Jahy goes into a bathhouse seeing that a dirt cheap apartment like that in Japan generally doesn't have a bath, and to save a bit of money she can conveniently shrink and go in as a kid. And then Jahy is invited to a party where Druj makes it look like how it was in the demon realm, and while it wasn't the real thing, that really got Jahy motivated to gather up the mana crystals and to try and resurrect her home, though she doesn't realize how difficult that is. Another amusing episode there going to show that Jahy is thinking big, but she's getting played for a fool.

                    Episode 9

                    Can't be a magical girl on a budget.

                    Saurva is back, and she's just as dimwitted as ever, though at least she gets some great enjoyment out of it as she takes in the bathhouse experience and that got her mind off of Jahy. And then Jahy sets up traps in her apartment to protect herself from the magical girl not realizing that she's actually just trapping herself, and not to mention the landlord would do a much better job than a bunch of simple-minded traps. And then Jahy goes on a shopping trip hoping to buy something to fight back against the magical girl, but she's being sidetracked by all sorts of deals for things she doesn't need at all. And when she finally gets serious about buying something to defeat the magical girl, she gets a toy lightsaber as while it looks cool, it's nothing more than a glorified glowstick. Quite a nice episode that was, especially with Jahy's shopping trip as she doesn't know the first thing about pushy salespeople, and not to mention a place like that probably won't have anything that can stand up to a magical girl, especially not after squandering all her hard-earned money on stuff she doesn't need.

                      Get them before they're gone.

                      The magical girl is back, and Jahy is on the defensive again as after Kokoro is saved from getting bulldozed by an oncoming truck, Jahy is worried that she would lose her best friend to her most hated enemy. And then Jahy follows the magical girl into her school where she's experiencing misfortune at every turn, and it is revealed that the mana crystals are the cause of her bouts of bad luck seeing that they were not meant for humans to possess. So the magical girl decides to destroy these crystals and spare everybody misfortune. Quite an amusing chat those two had in the nurse's office seeing that after all they are enemies in a place where fighting isn't exactly appropriate. But nevertheless, it goes to show that Jahy's dream of restoring the demon realm are ever so fleeting, and she would be better off focusing on making it in the world she is in right now.

                        She reaps what she sows.

                        With the pub manager growing her own vegetable garden, that gives Jahy an idea to grow her own plants to save on food costs. Of course, this is something that doesn't immediately pay dividends as plants require time and love to grow. So after taking her plant she names Tomarou around for a ride and all other crazy things, it finally sprouts some food. Just one problem in that she didn't grow tomatoes, but habanero peppers. Next time, check the label more carefully, Jahy. And then the landlady gets in an argument with her sister over something as petty as her wearing her shirt. So she stays in Jahy's place under the agreement that she does housecleaning, but did none of that. While Jahy is out, she bumps into Druj again, and makes the mistake of assuming that the magical girl is her underling. And in the end, the landlady made up. Pretty stupid that was, but it led to some pretty hilarious moments.

                          It's not a doggone trap.

                          It's Jahy's lucky day as she found a mana crystal right on top of a manhole, but she's overthinking things there like crazy. While she has every reason to believe that it would be a trap, it wasn't as it's merely coincidence that a mana crystal was just lying there. It wasn't until the manager came by that she was convinced that it wasn't a trap. And then Jahy decides to make Kokoro happy putting her quest to acquire more mana crystals aside. While that's going on, Saurva creates a potion meant for Jahy to turn into the dog, but there's just one problem in that she drinks it, mistaking it for her tea, and that leads her to being cuddled by Jahy. And then there's that crane game segment where Jahy just doesn't realize that the game is rigged, and that it will probbly take more than 100 yen to get all those snacks. Pretty crazy stuff once again going to show that Jahy is really overthinking things.

                            No day at the beach. Only bad luck.

                            It's off to the beach, but not for a vacation as far as Jahy is concerned. Nope, she's there to work at the beachside cafe that is run by the pub manager's uncle. Jahy couldn't care less about work, but when free food is involved, she just couldn't resist. Of course, there weren't many customers coming as a series of unfortunate events happen one right after another with the jellyfish-infested waters, the unexpected rain, the rough tides, and all sorts of other things to keep would-be beachgoers at home. But for Jahy, she hit the jackpot as there were a bazillion or so shards of mana crystals on the ocean floor, though she would end up having to rescue a lot of people from danger seeing that she can't get them with those guys in the way. And then Druj approaches Jahy as while she had made quite a big fortune, unfortunately for her she misses being Jahy's slave going to show that she's a masochist. Next time, Jahy squares off against the magical girl again, though I'm not so sure she wants to fight her seeing that even with those mana crystals, Jahy still doesn't stand a chance and would be nothing but a waste of time for the magical girl from the look of things.

                              Let's all be friends.

                              The time has come for Jahy to face off against the magical girl, and she really through everything she had at her. But in the end, the two made a deal and now these sworn enemies are now friends. Seeing that the mana crystals are nothing but bad news for her that she hands them over to Jahy in exchange for being friends. So now that they are no longer fighting each other, Jahy is taken to the magical girl's house that has fallen into disrepair thanks to the mana crystals where she meets up with the Dark Lord, and she has quite a big appetite there as she quickly devoured all the food on the table leaving Jahy with nothing to eat. And then Jahy learns how the magical girl ended up becoming one as she was saving a cat, and fell in where she became the magical girl with the mission to defeat Jahy. Of course, with Jahy weak and powerless that it doesn't matter anymore. Quite a bizarre turn of events there and it's really ironic that the magical girl is letting the Dark Lord stay with her, but it's good to see them getting along so well.
