How Not to Summon a Demon Lord
After a botched demonic summoning ritual brings Takuma Sakamoto into the fantastical game world of Cross Reverie, he is transformed from a lonely shut-in into the powerful Demon Lord Diablo.
Or at least, he’s changed on the outside. On the inside, he’s still a self-conscious mess with social anxiety and little to no experience with women.
Regardless, he sees this new twist of fate as an opportunity and decides to dive full-in on his new demon lord persona. He’ll take on any challenge, and with luck, will help his two would-be summoners with the problems they summoned him to solve.
A surprise hit of 2018, How Not to Summon a Demon Lord blends the harem and isekai genres beautifully. Its characters will have you laughing one minute and heartbroken the next, all the while building up a world you won’t soon forget.
