Premise: Takuma is a shut-in gamer who has poured countless hours into creating his persona Diablo, a Demon Lord in the MMORPG Cross Reverie. As one of the game’s top players, he’s easily defeated all who oppose him, at the cost of having no social skills. Until one day a summoning spell transports him to another world as his avatar, Diablo. The two girls who summoned him try to perform an enslavement ritual on him, but the spell backfires and causes them to become his slaves instead. With the situation now becoming more awkward than ever, Takuma decides to accompany the girls in finding a way to unbind their contract while learning to adapt to his new existence as the menacing Demon King.
TheAwersome’s Thoughts: The epitome of why people don’t like the Isekai genre these days. That’s what this show is. OP Protagonist transported to a world where, thanks to having spent his life on video games, all the girls (who lack much personality and intelligence) want to bang him. And I don’t just mean that metaphorically. There’s enough standard fantasy plot and action to make you not want to completely give up, but by the end I still wish I had.
The amount of pointless ecchi in this is absurd. Boobs do not work like that. People do not wear that to bed. Nobody is that clueless about what is and is not a sexual situation. Those outfits are not practical for any use outside of a strip club, let alone a battlefield.
TLDR: If you don’t want to admit to yourself that you really just want to watch hentai, go ahead and watch this. Otherwise, your eyes are going to be doing 300 RPM in your sockets, both for rolling because it’s so dumb and for checking to make sure nobody sees you watching this trash.
There is a second season called How Not to Summon a Demon Lord Ω.
