What is The Devil is a Part-Timer plot?
The title is quite a bit of a giveaway. Satan initiates his plan to conquer the domain of Ente Isla with the help of his generals. But as in every fantasy world, his plans are thwarted by the hero Emilia and her companions. Satan and Alciel use a portal to escape to earth and reach modern Tokyo. Ente Isla being rich in magic supported their true forms but earth could not sustain it.
They both transform into humans and try to do regular human things while trying to figure out how to deal with the situation. Now called Sadao Maou, Satan takes up a job in a parody of McDonald’s and quite enjoys working there part-time. Soon after, Emilia locates him and Alciel that actually begins a series of hilarious events instead of a battle.
