one of the better animes I've seen lately..., 29 July 2011
Author: joelherro from Australia

this was pretty funny and all-round likable. I found myself smiling and/or actually laughing a bit, which is unusual for me, especially when it comes to anime...but thats a good thing...

Set in the future, where magic and science co-exist, Sai Akuto is heading off to his first day at the Constant Magic Academy (its not called Hogwarts!). He is a benevolent type of guy who just wants to make the world a better place and help everyone. So when he is told his future occupation (by a talking bird who is never wrong, like the hat at Hogwarts...) is going to be a Demon King, he is not ready for that or happy about it. The rest of the students don't exactly welcome this news either and he is either feared or hated by everyone. Some of the girls though, decide this is sexy and start to get close to him.

The comedy elements come when he tries to do right by people, but no matter what good he does, everyone always thinks that he is pretending or just doing what a demon king would to confuse or trick them. How long can he fight his fate, or will he give in to his destiny? Especially when the girls are throwing themselves at him!

Very ecchi, with lots of pantsu and nudity and a reasonable amount of action,there's definitely fun to be had here, even if it gets confusing towards the end...the production values and animation are great, all the characters have distinct looks and personalities and Akuto is no wimpy main man, even some of the guys love him...worth a watch
