Just imagine a world where you can have supernatural pets. No not just unicorns, but zombies, Satan himself, Arthur, but also rubber duckies of doom (not really though). You have to walk these guys and girls, you have to take care of them, you have to teach them how to do things.
And thus welcome to the world of Uchi no Maou Kamimasen. Our main lead is Yuuhei, and he is the owner of Satan. Yes, that Satan. Though well not the red guy you always see in pictures. Oh no, this Satan is a pretty hot, trained, and sexy guy, who is seriously shy and binge-eats everything that is food. And for some magical reason doesn’t get fat.
We read about Satan on how he got in the family, what Yuuhei did to get such a close bond to him, to hilarious situations between sister and Satan. How Satan reacts if he has to step over a storm drain, or when he has to defend his territory (yes, these supernatural creatures love to defend their territories).
Satan and Yuuhei (and his family) aren’t the only ones we see in the manga. We also find out about Louis and Bifore. A guy (though according to him he is a maiden in the wrong body) and his zombie. Yes, zombie. You can kind of imagine what will happen if you try to pet her, or if she is fond of someone (for instance Satan).
The manga is hilarious, funny, and you will truly roll around laughing. This world is just so weird, but also so special. The bonds between the creatures and their owners (and families) is brilliantly done.
I also love that supernatural creatures can do a job change (yes, even the demon lord of all), though that there is a lot more to it than just a yes and a change. You have to be compatible and all that.
The art is pretty great, I love how the characters are drawn, they fit perfectly with how I would see them based on their conversations and story. The backgrounds are pretty too.
All in all, I will be sure to read this manga further as I want to know what will happen in the next volume (we end on a slight cliffhanger), and I want to see how this supernatural creatures are a pet manga. What kind of pets will we see in the next one, and how much more character backstory can we get!
I also just adore the chapter titles. Here are a few of my favourites for the first volume:
My Demon King Can Speak!
This is My Pet Demon King
My Demon King’s Changing His Career
And checking the other volumes, it seems these chapter titles will only get more funny and cute. 🙂
I would highly recommend this manga to everyone.
