Anime revolving around demon characters may not seem interesting to most viewers but you’ll be surprised at how amazing ‘Mairimashita! Iruma-kun’ can be.

Despite having simplistic designs, its the personalities of the characters that grow in the original story. They’re all bold, likable and are very distinctive from each other. Overall, ‘Mairimashita! Iruma-kun’ is not driven by consequence-heavy conflicts and can only be enjoyed by those who are looking for something light and entertaining.
