The series follows Iruma, a 14-year-old boy whose parents sold him to a demon for money and Iruma finds himself dragged against his will into the world of demons. The demon that kidnapped Iruma asks him to become his grandchild and attend a demon school.
To make matters worse, his adoring owner and self-proclaimed “Grandpa” is the chair-demon at his new school. To survive, Iruma must deal with other students who don’t like humans. Iruma lives in a fair that eventually, someone will find out that he is a human, and he will either be kicked out of school or worse, eaten by demons.
