Before airing, no one was really looking forward to this series. The first episode's great humor changed everyone's mind. As the series continued, everyone enjoyed the humor, action and characters. It was popular enough to get 9th in Newtype's most popular anime for the year of 2013. See more »
Ah! This is how I wish Blue Exorcist had handled itself. Make it to wear you have action, humor, and not feel woefully incomplete. The Devil is a Part-Timer! did all those things very well. It knows what it's trying to do, so it doesn't try to create some epic plot line or anything like that. All it does is bring some nicely animated action scenes and plenty of humor. This show is not very deep, so if you are looking for something with a little more meat, you might want to look elsewhere. This is something you would either turn on in the background, or watch when you want to use zero of your brain cells, and I really have no issues with that. There is some minor stuff that bugged me, like "why did the bad guy just say screw it and live with the good guys" and "why did the good guys even think that was a good idea in the first place", but I can't complain too much. It did what it set out to do, which was to simply entertain me. I give this show a 7/10.
