Summary : Meet Galt Luzen, the Demon Lord. Well, the Demon Lord of his own continent, anyway. After his wife passed away, he gradually withdrew from his social life and started to do more of whatever Demon Lords do.
Enter Angelica, the Hero. Heroine. Whatever. She’s a paladin of goodness, who wants nothing more than to defeat the Demon Lord. However, she is no match for him and is utterly defeated.
As Galt is not a completely evil Demon Lord, he takes Angelica, still unconscious, as well as the other members of her party, back to their families so they can rest their wounds. As he is bringing back Angelica to her home, however, he meets her mother, Reitia - who is the splitting image of his former wife. As he and she bond over tea, Galt’s feelings get the better of him, and he proposes to Reitia on the spot. Surprisingly, she accepts.
How will Angelica cope with a literal demon for a stepfather? Can Galt take care of someone who has taken a blood oath to kill him? Just what are Demon Lords in this world, anyway, for them to nonchalantly treat the battles of good and evil as if they were sports? Read and find out.

Just read this one yesterday, and it was the most wtf pretext I have seen in a while.
Need this in my life, lol.
Sounds fun. Though Shogakukan is unfortunately a major obstacle.
@tgquan67 Your comment kind of sums it up for me as well..
I'm always in for stuff with central adult characters.
Keep feeling like a weirdo reading stuff about people young enough to be my kids
Killing Slimes is a fun series with a well-done grown-up MC, so this gets my vote.
It is an amusing concept, I wonder where the author will take it.

This is an interesting concept and wouldn't mind it getting licensed.

What’s the point in suggesting licenses from publishers like Gagaga Books? Yes! We’re allowed to want licences like this, but sadly we have to be realistic here, only a lot money and a change of attitude toward the Western market will see any possible chance of this ever getting licensed.
@caramelwithoutthesalt You never know when circumstances will change and a publisher that was previously thought as unapproachable opens its doors. Shogakukan/Gagaga, for example, just recently allowed Yen Press to start selling its books (Oregairu, ImoSae) digitally, meaning they're no longer against international digital sales like they used to be, and considering that was one of the biggest hurdles for JNC licensing stuff from them, we're now that much closer to having all these Shogakukan request threads suddenly becoming relevant.
Sure, money is an issue, but more so for longer, established series. A series like this with only a few volumes out is much more accessible.

@stardf29 I would like to apologise for my post if I came across as aggressive or negative.
Personally, I want to see JNC licence Shogakukan/Gagaga titles since everyone will benefit, opening doors to more license that’ll appeal to everyone. Browsing the suggestion forum, I’ve seen several titles from Shogakukan/Gagaga that piques my interest including this one. (Gonna be the Twin-Tail!! is my most desired title from them.)
I’m not against Shogakukan/Gagaga Books, but frustrated with them.
