Manga-Mania May: Hataraku Maou-sama!

The demon king Satan has declared war on all of the humans, and wish to dominate them. But after almost being slain by the humans champion, the hero Emilia, he has to retreat with his most loyal general; Alciel. They travel to our dimension by  the use of magic, but soon realize that this was a mistake. You see, magic does not exist in our world, so the demo king and his general are now powerless, and without magic, they turn into human-like creatures. They are now stuck in our world until they can find a way to restore their demonic powers and open a new portal home.
Until then, they must take the identity of humans, and try and fit into society as best as they can. Satan takes the name Sadao Mao, and becomes a part-time employee in a fast-food store (insert joke of own choice), while Alciel, who goes by the name Shiro, takes care of their very, VERY humble home.
After living as humans for a couple of months, they learn that they have two great problems: A) The demon king finds himself feeling pretty comfortable in this world, and like his new life as burger-flipper. And B) They are not the only visitors from their own world...
I normally dont do this, but I would HIGHLY recommend that you watch the anime instead. It just has a better flow, and the story is just told better as anime instead of manga. Not that the manga is bad, the anime just does a better job at telling the story.
This is a odd little combination of everyday life and magical adventure(even though it focus more on the first than the later) and I freaking loved it! It's surprising how lighthearted this story is, considered that SATAN is the main character.
And that is all I really have to say: This manga is good, but he anime is WAY better.
That's all for today, 23 to go.
I'm Waezi2, and thanks for wasting time with me.
