The seventh episode of Maou-sama, Retry! is dedicated to Zero’s awesomeness. The student seems to surpass the master and I sense that, sooner or later, Demon-Lord will be envious of his own creation.
Satanists are outraged that their little toy got wrecked by Kunai and they’re determined to finish him and the whole city once and for all. So, they’re summoning a Demon Prince in order to take revenge. Though, Demon-Lord has other plans and, after Holy Maidens’ failure in stopping evil, he orders Zero to return and save the day.
Zero makes the ladies go crazy and he’s awarding the audience with some cliche -but hilarious to watch- moments. His battle might be visually poor, but the comedy elements recompense us. Kunai was absent for most of the time and no one seemed to wonder about where he might be… Hm, that’s odd!
Fangirl: Killer Queen… killed it when she started mumbling Zero’s name. Because of her excitement, she couldn’t even spell correctly, reminding me of all the original fangirls (and fanboys) out there. I have to admit that I literally laughed out loud during that scene!
Themes & Trivia
Dracula: Demon Prince is basically Dracula. He’s fancy, white as the moon, he transforms into a bat, and he sucks blood to remain fresh and strong. Let’s take a closer look at the real Dracula! Dracula has been assigned to many literary genres including vampire literature, horror fiction, the gothic novel, and invasion literature. It’s an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker. It introduced the character of Count Dracula, and established many conventions of subsequent vampire fantasy. The novel tells the story of Dracula’s attempt to move from Transylvania to England so that he may find new blood and spread the undead curse, and of the battle between Dracula and a small group of men and a woman led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing.
This series is genius and, to my humble opinion, it trolls the majority of isekai anime. Even though it’s full of cliche and fanservice, it’s not cringe and it’s pleasant to watch. The story is actually good and the cheap artwork somehow makes everything even better. Yet, I would like to mention that manga’s artwork is actually astonishing and one of the best I’ve seen, give it a look!
In conclusion, the excitement is alive and I’m looking forward for more punchlines and jokes. I suggest to watch this show with your friends if you want to have the time of your life. It’s a comedy gem and I rarely have a sincere laugh with anime, so, it’s a YES from me!
