The story of “The Devil Is a Part-Timer!!” revolves around the Devil King and his general who, after being defeated by the hero Emilia, retreat to a parallel universe and end up in modern-day Tokyo. Lacking the magic to return home, they assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. To make ends meet, Satan finds employment at a nearby fast food joint, aiming to work his way up the management food chain.
