“Hararaku Majo-sama! was published in February 2011, and it is the debut work of Mr. Soji Wagahara, who won the Silver Prize in the 17th Dengeki Novel Awards.
It is the debut work of Mr. Soji Wagahara, who won the Silver Prize in the 17th Dengeki Novel Award.
At the time of submission, “The Demon King’s Castle is a six-mat room! but the title was changed at the time of publication to the current title.
Before the first volume was released, it was titled “Shirokuro Nekuro,” which won the Grand Prize, “Seishun Lariat” which won the Gold Prize, and “Idle Rising! and “Idolizing! but Hataraku Maou-sama received high praise on the internet after the first volume was released, and recorded outstanding sales.
029-sensei’s cute character designs were also well received by many readers, and the manga became an instant hit.
Due to the strong sales, at the end of 2011, the manga was published in the monthly comic Dengeki Daioh and the series was started.
The manga version, which was created by Hiiragi Akio, also gained popularity and the momentum grew even faster.
Then in October 2012, the long-awaited TV anime adaptation was decided.
It will be broadcasted in the spring of 2013.
It was made into an anime in 2 years and 2 months, which is pretty fast for a light novel.
Other works that became an anime in 2 years and 2 months are “Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai”, “Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai”, and “Re:Zero kara Hajimaru Isekai Seikatsu”, there are only a few works that became an anime earlier than this.
It can be said that these works gained popularity quite early on.
Then why did Hataraku Majo-sama become such a popular work?
Needless to say, the main reason is the interesting setting and content, and the cute illustrations.
The story is about a demon king who has been transferred to an alternate universe in modern Japan and decides to settle down in Japan in order to find a way to recover his magical power, and lives a part-time job while getting used to the country.
Most otherworldly fantasies are based on the pattern of “ordinary people transitioning from this world to another”, but the novelty of this story, which is the exact opposite of that pattern, seems to have struck a chord with many light novel fans.
029-sensei was still a newcomer at the time, but at the time of the first volume, he had already drawn pictures that grabbed the hearts of readers and led him to adapt not only this work, but also “Enninou Battle ha Nichijo-kei no Naka de” and “Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear” into an anime.
It goes without saying that the female characters are cute, but the character design of the main character, Maou Sadao, who has a complicated situation of being a “commoner despite being a demon king”, is also easy to relate to, and this is probably one of the main reasons why the work was a hit.
At this time the genre of reincarnation/transference was gradually spreading around the internet, and at the same time “Log Horizon” and “Mondaiji-tachi ga tachi ga xenobi shojo sasu yo yo? and other works began to be published and gained popularity.
As a result of the interesting content, the centripetal force of the illustrations, and the trend of the times, Hataraku Maou-sama became one of the most popular light novels of the early 2010s.
