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.

Entertaining, but probably ment more for male eyes
25 July 2018 | by christian-schenk987See all my reviews

I have to admit, that at this point people are just milking the into another world action harem idea and hardly have any original ideas anymore. Kono Suba was beyond great, Issekai no Smartphone was complete garbage (still unnecessarily famous) and this is something in the middle.

It's good in the sense that it makes me laugh from time to time and I keep coming back to it because of the entertainment factor. This is probably also due to my love of overpowered characters.

It's bad in the sense that except for the main character you can only see ecchi lolis throwing themselves at the Demon Lord. This is not creativity, it's very questionable softporn.....so basically what all teenage boys watching it long for. If I am completely honest, this anime would probably even be better without any nudity at all and adult women. Sadly, this is not what the current anime community craves for.

Main Character, plot and comedy is above average, everything else is over the top. It gets a solid 6 from 10.
