How Not to Summon a Demon Lord: Most Astonishing Addition of Plot
What do you get when you combine a isekai genre series about a cat-girl and elf who summon a shut-in demon lord and accidentally turn themselves into his slave? All the while having various articles of clothing compromised or flat-out falling off? Would you believe me if I said you get an engaging plot and multi-dimensional and interesting characters? No? Well, I wouldn’t blame you. But that’s exactly what How Now to Summon a Demon Lord has give us! I was about to give up on the show until Anime Q and A convinced me otherwise! I was having such a hard time processing the show going from Diablo going from rubbing Rem’s ears until she orgasmed to him pledging to support her against a demon curse that basically isolated her from the rest of the population — and earning her tearful, heart-felt gratitude in the process! That’s a lot to process for an isekai show! But this show’s done an amazing job of maintaining its balance between well-animated fan service (Shera L. Greenwood is probably one of the sexiest elves like, ever) and realistic politics and world building. Yes, I used the words “realistic” and “world building” non ironically in this context!
