This one is for all you fantasy fans out there. Kadokawa made an announcement last year, on March 29th, promising another installment in the ‘Demon Lord’ anime category. Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero (Reberu Wan Maō to Wan Rūmu Yūsha) promises to be a mix of slice-of-life and action-ish. Those of you who feel the devil is a part-timer will be in good hands with this.
The announcement was accompanied by a teaser promotional video, a teaser visual, additional cast members, and the main staff of the show.

The anime adaptation will debut this year and will be based on the same-named manga, which began serialization in 2016. It follows a shut-in ex-hero who lives with a demon lord. Unfortunately, no specific release date has been announced, but we can expect it sooner rather than later.
The Cast and Staff Involved
From the minds that brought us gems like Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya and The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody, the studios Silver Link and Blade will collaborate to bring us this series.
The direction of the series was handed to Keisuke Inoue (My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom). It also features Toshiya Ohno (THE PROMISED NEVERLAND) on the series composition. In addition, Yoshihiro Watanabe (The Testament of Sister New Devil) handling character designs.
The Castings are as follows,
- Yoshiyuki Matsuoka plays Fred, a companion of the hero Max
- While Hiroshi Shimono plays Leo (Kirito in Sword Art Online)
- Ami Koshimizu plays Yuria (Zenitsu in Demon Slayer)
- Yuichi Nakamura (Gray Fullbuster in Fairy Tail) plays Max
- Naomi Ozora (Hana Uzaki in Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!) plays the Demon Lord.
The visuals and PV depict Max, Fred, Leo, and Yulia.
Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero’s Plot
Max, the hero, defeated the Demon Lord ten years ago. The inhabitants of this fantasy world thrived greatly as a result of the peace that followed.
The Demon Lord fell into a deep slumber in order to reclaim his power. Ten years later, he awakens from his slumber to exact his vengeance. However, his awakening was premature, and his body is only a chibi version of its fearsome form. The Demon Lord, curious to see what his adversary is up to, decided to pay a visit to Max. He was shocked to discover that the mighty hero has turned into a NEET and is living in a filthy one-room apartment. The Demon Lord decides to live with Max and assist his old adversary in becoming a formidable opponent once more!
The series will explore the interactions between the two characters and the world in which they live. As the two characters learn more about each other and the world around them, it will be an exciting journey of adventure and discovery. Can the forces of evil triumph over a shut-in slob?

Frequently Asked Questions
The NEET character is a common trope in anime for good reason: they’re lazy, unproductive, and socially awkward. They are portrayed as intelligent but not applying their knowledge to anything useful (or even taking part in society at all).
