The story revolves around a young man named Raul Chaser who dreamed of becoming a hero with his team of skilled heroes-in-training, but due to the collapse of the Demon Empire, the Hero Program was suspended. With Raul’s dream crushed, he was forced to find a new line of work and ended up employed at a small department store called Magic Shop Leon. Raul’s life since then has been busy but dull, when one day someone arrives at the store applying for a job. Raul finds out that the new hire is the Demon Lord’s child and also happens to be a cute girl.
It's an extremely fun, fanservicey series with a good plot and the anime adaption while good skipped over a lot and really left me wanting more.
I actually bought the full set of this one on Bookwalker (it was next to nothing from one of their better coin up thingamajigs). If I ever learn Japanese... I'll stare at the cover still probably since I won't have the time to read it between everything else releasing. xD
Of note, this one has 11 volumes, and I believe it is complete.
I like the Demon Lord department store idea, so I’ll thumbs up it.
The anime on this one was just too funny! I would love to read the LN and see how the story actually goes beyond the anime.
many situations reminded me of my days working a retail floor 20+ years ago(back when Circuit City was a thing) maybe more LOL for me than some because of that- but I liked the anime, gets my vote
The anime aired years ago, I feel old now. Please remedy my depression by licensing this asap. Thanks.
bumping as there was a new thread post (and I missed this a year ago)
I found the anime hilarious - perhaps because it reminded me of my 'youth' when I worked at Circuit City, when Circuit City was still a thing. I was amazed that some things just seem to be universal (Dealing w/ customers in a Magic land, dealing with customers in Japan, dealing with customers in suburban USA, workplace relationships, corporate politics, competitors etc)
would love to see this licensed
I would consider selling part of my soul to see this series translated. When I saw the joke they made on the jnc site for the stay home and read promo based on this series' title, part of me was seriously hoping it was some hint this got picked up.
Please Sam if you read this and you ever need part of someone else's soul, my offer stands just give me Fino.
