The teenaged demon-lord, Laharl finds himself rudely awoken by a Heaven-sent Angel, after having been poisoned, sealed in a magic coffin and then dumped in a rubbish heap of a cemetery. Flonne, an apprentice Angel assassin tells him that two years have passed since his father, the demon King Krichevskoy’s death. Laharl learns that he was attacked to keep him out of the running for his father's now vacant position as the Great-Dark-Lord. So together with Flonne, and Enta, a cute demon follower, Laharl decides to set forth for the royal castle to reclaim the throne that is rightfully his and to really hurt those who ambushed him and attempted to seal him away.

The series wasn't bad, though I'm guessing fans of the game would get more out of it than most people. There weren't quite enough action scenes but it made me laugh a couple times so that was good.

I expected better more from the promo I saw, but it turned out completely different sadly. Still its not bad for a chuckle or two.

This is a really light hearted and silly series, but I am enjoying it. It is well worth watching if you want some mental cotton-candy and are in need of some silly laughs.

If ya want more, then you will probably have to buy and play the associated vid-game. But for a thoroughly fluffy, empty, frivolous and entertaining distraction .... this is pretty good bet!

Now I watched this in Japanese and thought it was cute, the R1 English is pretty awful. Not as bad as Di Gi Charat but it shows that the director was not in tip top shape that week.

More IF I see more.
