Within the world of Cross Reverie, two maidens in dire need summon the fearsome Demon Lord Diablo to save them. But Cross Reverie is just a virtual reality game, and Diablo is Takuma Sakamoto, an elite player with social issues. Sakamoto is shocked at his situation, even more so when the maidens Shera and Rem become magically enslaved to him, but he decides to rise to the occasion and use his Diablo persona to help out the girls and survive in the new world.
Sakamoto Takuma spends his days playing a computer game; he has got to such a level that fellow players call him 'Demon Lord'. Then one day he finds himself summoned into a world very similar to the world of the game. In this world he appears as his game avatar and has all the powers from the game. He was summoned by two girls who immediately cast an enslavement spell on him... unfortunately for them he has the skill 'Magic Reflect' so end up his slaves. The girls are Shera, a busty elf, and Rem, a petite pantherian. The trio soon get into a series of adventures and The Demon Lord is soon defeating everybody he faces; of course they gradually face tougher foes until they find the real Demon King and must battle to save the mortal races.
The idea of a character somehow being caught in world that is either an actual video game or just like one is hardly original but that doesn't matter as this series is quite fun. The fact that Sakamoto is ridiculously overpowered compared to most people he fights provides some laughs. The story is simple enough but, thanks to the likeable characters, it is a rather enjoyable. There is quite a lot of fan service which might bother some viewers even though, at least in the broadcast version, we don't see too much. The series comes to a solid conclusion which wraps up most plot details in an enjoyable way. Overall I'd say this might not be a must-see series but it is worth watching if you like the genre as it provides more than enough laughs and a decent story.
