The Devil Is a Part-Timer! (はたらく魔王さま!, Hataraku Maō-sama!, lit. "Working Demon King!" or "Demon Lord at Work!") is a Japanese light novel series written by Satoshi Wagahara, with illustrations by Oniku (written as 029). ASCII Media Works has published 18 volumes since February 2011. There have been two manga adaptations published by ASCII Media Works in Dengeki Daioh and Dengeki Maoh. A 13-episode anime adaptation produced by White Fox and directed by Naoto Hosoda aired between April and June 2013.
Devil King Satan Jacob is only one step away from conquering the world when he is beaten by Hero Emilia and forced to drift to the other world: modern-day Tokyo. As "conquering the world" are the only skills the Devil King possesses—and are obviously unnecessary in his new situation—he must adopt the name Sadao Maou and work as a freeter to pay for his living expenses!
