The Dark Lord Satan attempted to take over another dimension… It didn’t go well. He was forced to flee, with the fabled hero Hero Emilia Justina hot on his tail, through a portal that dropped him off in modern-day Japan. Deprived of his magical powers, Satan must adopt a human persona — and get a part-time job at a fast food restaurant — in order to survive in this fantasy-comedy anime series based on the light novels written by Satoshi Wagahara.
