The Devil Is a Part Timer anime series is coming back this year after a long wait of almost 9 years, but that is not the only thing that fans are excited about. As it turns out, the author of the light novel series, Satoshi Wagahara will be bringing back the series for a sequel.
This new project will be titled “Hataraku Maou-sama – Okawari!!”. This sequel series will continue the story where the previous light novel left off. As you may already know, there were lots of controversies regarding the love triangle between Maou, Emi and Chiho. Needless to say, most light novel readers were not happy how the author handled the love story.
“Hataraku Maou-sama – Okawari!!” is illustrated by 029, and scheduled to release in July 2022. Hopefully, Satoshi Wagahara will address the romance relation of Maou, and who knows, we might see Maou getting his own harem in the sequel.
Season 2 of The Devil is a part timer is also scheduled for July 2022 release. It will be animated by Studio 3Hz. Marina Horiuchi performs The Devil Is a Part-Timer!! season 2 anime’s ending song, which is penned by the nano․RIPE band members!
Yen Press describes the story as follows:
After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo! Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?!
