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.

User Reviews

Better than it needs to be.
17 September 2018 | by invisibleunicornninjaSee all my reviews

Animation - Everything from the character designs to the fight choreography, to each bounce of a titty clearly had a lot of thought put into it. The overall look of this show is very well done, and I applaud the animators, who clearly had a lot of fun doing their jobs.

Characters - I was expecting the cast to just be a bunch of cliches and was pleasantly surprised to find that everyone had unique personalities. The lead guy is actually quite likable.

Plot - All jokes aside, this show actually does have a plot. While its not that complex, and the overall runtime is most dedicated to fan service, fight scenes, and just straight-up comedy, there is some interesting stuff going on here. Its not brilliant but its fun and serves as a nice framework for all the jokes. This is not a show you are going to enjoy if you take it seriously.

Voices - The voice acting in this show is pretty good, the actors are clearly into their roles, and it makes the show fun to listen to as well as watch.
