Big news out of Japan this morning as we have a brand new TV anime adaptation to tell you about!
According to the third compiled volume of the manga series, An Angel Flew Down to Me! (Japanese title: Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!), a TV anime adaptation has been green-lit at studio Doga Kobo (Monthly Girls Nozaki-Kun, Gabriel Dropout).
Along with the production studio, we also have some key members of the staff already!
Director – Daisuke Hiramaki Character Designs – Hiromi Nakagawa Series Composition – Yuka Yamada
The series’ main character is a shy, otaku, female college student named Miyako who has a younger sister in elementary school. When this younger sister brings a friend home to visit, Miyako falls in love instantly. Yeah, there’s a reason why I waited a bit before I told you about the story.
The series was originally launched in 2016 in the magazine Comics Yurihime with story and art by Nanatsu Mukunoki and, as mentioned, has three compiled volumes to date.
I’m not going to lie to you, that story synopsis isn’t filling me with vast amounts of hope for this one. I could always be surprised but until I see a promotional video that shows me otherwise, I have to chuck this one in the ‘possibly creepy’ bin.
Yep, it’s another isekai series filled with demons and magic and stuff.
Earlier today a brand new promotional video and key visual was revealed for the series set to premiere on July 5th, How NOT to Summon a Demon. In the video (which lasts for almost two and a half minutes), we are given a pretty good idea of what to expect from this one. I’m not going to comment specifically about what I think of this one (that’s what Twitter is for) but I’ll let you see and judge for yourself.
At the very least, we at least get to sample the opening and ending theme songs.
J-Novel Club is releasing the light novel series in English via their website and describes the story as:
In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to another world – but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They had performed an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon… but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability “Magic Reflection” activated! Instead, it was the girls who had become enslaved! Though Takuma may have been the strongest Sorcerer there was, he had no idea how to talk with other people. That’s when he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game!
“Amazing? But of course… I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!”
So begins a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!
