OP: 「EVERYBODY! EVERYBODY!」by Yuu Serizawa with DJ KOO & MOTSU
「大主神官」 (Dai Shushinkan)
I’ll be honest, I had forgotten about Isekai Maou until now. While this was a series I liked when it aired (mostly for the comedy – I swear!), its version of good natured ecchi ribaldry sort of fell by the wayside after the likes of Ishuzoku Reviewers and Kaiyari made their grand debut. Now though? Well it’s right back into the thick of things, and oh boy how quickly the mind remembers.
Although ostensibly a sequel, the latest Isekai Maou has arguably done a good job with refamiliarizing those like me with whom it slipped the mind. What RC previews don’t describe this episode did well enough, bringing back all those fond memories of
slutty buxom elves and cat girls giving magical birth to loli demon girls with unsatiable lusts for biscuits. Also, yes, social anxiety Diablo (Mizunaka Masaaki) in all his hilarious (and ever so slightly relatable) glory to remind us what this season will continue featuring in abundance. Frankly nothing too surprising if you can remember back: Shera (Serizawa Yuu) remains as hilariously scatterbrained and mass endowed as ever; Rem (Waki Azumi) continues the long tradition of washboard tsunder-isms; and little Klem (Tanezaki Atsumi) is as adorably deadly as when we left her. Even some other cast members were kind enough to feature in a cameo or three.
The main crux of this season, however, will be with new girl high priest Lumachina (Itou Miku) who definitely won’t be out of place in this ragtag party. Besides meeting the weekly full length image requirements (and then some), she’s pretty much stage three in Diablo’s social education thanks to her glorious refusal to accept he’s anything either than God or husband material. Sure, Diablo might’ve escaped the conundrum for the moment, but don’t think for a second that bluff will last – not with two other girls quite literally nipping at this priest’s heels. While helping Lumachina with her churchly problems is unfortunately removing Klem from the equation for the moment, I wouldn’t expect anything other than similar levels of Diablo-based hilarity once we start getting into the thick of things. After all, with drag queen tentacle titillation already on the table and Lumachina throwing off purity vibes like no one’s business, I don’t think it’ll take long before we get some really tasty (read: crazy) situations to dig into.
One way or another, I don’t think this season of Isekai Maou will prove disappointing in the slightest.
