The Devil is A Part-Timer Season 2 Details

the devil is a part-timer season 2


The Devil is a Part-Timer came out with a Season 2 after nearly 8 years.


The previous season of the anime thrilled and amused the fans. It was a brilliant blend of humour and entertainment.


Hataraku Maou-Sama! as it was known, in Japanese was a reverse Isekai anime. Are you wondering what “Isekai” means?


It’s a genre that involves the “other world” or “outer earth”. Isekai anime plots are centred on an earthly human who leaves this planet or realm.


The Devil is a Part-Timer is reverse Isekai as it involves an outsider visiting a human’s realm.


If this genre or this anime is new to you, you probably have a lot of questions.


Who came to the human dimension? Why did they come? What did they do here?


How did they remain alive? As you continue reading the article, you will learn more.


Let’s start with what we know about The Devil is a Part-Timer, right now.




Everything we know about The Devil is a Part-Timer so far


The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 1 was an adaptation of its light novel written by Satoshi Wagahara.


The anime was released on April 4th, 2013. It consisted of 13 episodes in total.


The last episode was aired on June 27th, 2013. Back then, the viewership for it was very low.


Netflix added The Devil is a Part-Timer Season 1, later on to its anime library.


It was after this point, that anime became popular. It even went on to create a cult following which would wait for the next season.


Let’s get into a brief recap of what happened in Season 1. The plot shows 2 protagonists – Satan Jacob, the Demon Lord, and Emilia Justina, the Hero.


Satan Jacob is an ambitious conqueror who sets out to capture Ente Isla. It’s a continent that was coveted by many – humans and demons alike.


Unfortunately or fortunately, Emilia Justina comes in to stop Satan Jacob in his mission. Emilia’s father was believed to be killed in a raid by Jacob’s army.


She ends up defeating him with the help of her comrades and Sariel. Satan, who is helpless, retreats with his General – Alsiel.


She follows him vowing to finish him. Satan Jacob uses a trans-dimensional portal. He believed that it would take him back to his realm.


However, he lands back in the same human world – in another part of it.


He finds himself stranded in Tokyo – which is a modern city. Satan Jacob vows to capture Ente Isla and realize his life’s goal.


But, he realizes the difficulties which stand in his way. He seems to have lost his hold of magical powers.


This made him helpless. He decides to stay in the human world, temporarily. He assumes the identity of a human and calls himself Sadao Maou.


He then joins for work at a fast-food stall named MgRonald. This is where he gets introduced to the corporate world.


He realizes that Ente Isla was too small a dream. Therefore, he realizes that he must conquer the corporate world to win over Earth.


He gets ready to work hard – do any job (including odd jobs) for progress.


At times, he appears to be helpless and overworked. The most hilarious parts of the anime are those when he tries to learn the ways of humankind.


He’s unfamiliar with serving, eating, and behaving as a good human.


Later, he tries to imbibe all the qualities of a good corporate leader like – Learning dining etiquette, paying the bills on time, being a good professional at his work, etc.


The anime is named so because Satan Jacob works part-time to accomplish his goal.


One day he discovers that Emilia is also in Tokyo. She’s also powerless like Jacob, in the human world.


So she is disguised as Emi Yusa, who works as a call centre agent. They both meet many times at the café where Jacob works.


Eventually, Yusa loses her job at the call centre. She’s forced to work at MgRonald’s – the café where Satan Jacob also works at.


The plot goes through strange ups and downs – shocking twists and turns as well.


Later, there is a revelation that Emi’s father is still alive. Meanwhile, she’s busy working at the café.


She also gets close to her colleagues – Maou and Chiho. Maou meanwhile sees an ideal partner in Emi.


He appoints her as the Demon General of the Demon Army. Though she opposes it, she is forced to accept it.


She’s now gone against her ally – Sariel. The anime ends on a different note than the ones which fans would expect, initially.


The duo discovers where Alsiel works while they visit a shop after being conned. The first season ended with Emi giving an umbrella to Maou.


Though it does not signify any romance, it ended unpredictably. Fans would have a hundred speculations in their minds – What’ll happen to Maou and Emi’s relationship?


How will Sariel react to Emi’s change? Will Maou conquer the world? And so on…
