Sate sate sate, we are back with a new list for our fellow otakus, best anime about demons. When it comes to the anime world, no fantasy is ever exaggerated, well unless you are watching Isekai genre of course. Some of these demon animes have got everything you need. Great fights? Check. Oppai? Check. Mighty protagonists? Check. Let’s start the list!
This world is rotten, and those who are making it rot deserve to die. Someone has to do it, so why not me?– Light Yagami, Death Note
PS…The list is not ranked. Its neither highest to lowest or vice versa.
1. Death Note
Death Note is by far the best strategic anime about demons I have ever seen. It is an anime that showcases the duels of two of the sharpest minds on Earth. They have but one motive, to be two steps ahead of others and own the game. That itself is a boon to the fans, with the existence of Shinigami being the cherry on the top. It is a story of a normal boy leading a healthy life who stepped out from being one of the brightest students to one of the most vindictive criminals and murderers in the history of Japan.
Light Yagami is one of the brightest students with his excellent scores and career set out to be shaped in the form of an Administrative Officer. It all changes when one day he finds a notebook with Death Note carved on it. The notebook had been mistakenly forgotten there by one of the Shinigami (Death God) named Ryuk. Trying to figure out the purpose and functioning of the book, Light accidentally kills a criminal. Woah! It is a death notebook, and it does kill people if you write their names on it. With the new fire of self-righteousness and the will to become the God, “Kira”; Light Yagami sets out to do his charades. Only to meet someone who can even outwit him, another genius and the greatest detective on Earth, named L. Yes, I promise you this is not of your day to day shonen anime about demons. Death Note is something people like to call a masterpiece.
2. Goblin Slayer
Goblin Slayer is yet another a short anime about demons, but it is worth it. The anime has a lot of cool and dangerous battles against one of the most vicious creatures, and has a lot of thrill in it, even though the name might suggest otherwise. Ya ya, I know what you folks have been thinking, it is an anime about demons, and the protagonist slays only Goblins. Goblins are the weakest. Well, that is what I thought; on the other hand, there is something much more in goblins than you can imagine. They can always catch you off guard, right? That is what happened to me.
It is a story set in somewhat old Japan, a world which is about to be taken over by Demon Lord, and vicious monsters like Dragons and Giants and whatnot. The only protection is few guilds and heroes that take on quests for slaying these monsters in exchange for money or such stuff. It is a story about a guy who might be one of the most skilled adventurers there is and his quest to slay the most dangerous monsters, Goblins. But how can goblins, those teeny tiny monsters with practically way less strength than other monsters can be the most dangerous? Well, that is the catch, the goblins can adapt, every time they fight they grow stronger. Living in colonies just like humans, these tiny monsters might pose a significant threat to humanity. And it is up to our Goblin Slayer and his team to rid the humanity of Goblins. It is undoubtedly one of the best anime about demons, and indeed, our personal recommendation.
3. High School DxD
High School DxD is a fantastic anime about demons and for those who like to have a little fun while watching anime if you know what I mean. Kuoh Academy which was an all-girls school and has recently turned co-ed. The best part is, unknown to most that this academy comprises of not only humans but angels and devils as well. Hyodo Issei, the protagonist of the anime, is a student in the academy with exceptional love for breasts.
One day, after being asked by an apparent beauty for a date, Amano, Issei is a little too happy for the best day of his life. But it is little known to him that she is a fallen angel looking to kill him after having little fun. Though that is not the wrong thing. Why? Because Issei after getting supposedly killed, wakes up on his bed with one of the most beautiful girls of the academy, Rias Gremory, naked by his side. What just happened? It seems that Rias is herself a high ranking devil and the heir to the Gremory family, and has saved Issei’s life by making him a devil.
4. That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime
That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime is an anime about demons and monsters filled with craziness, adventure, fun, and the might of an overpowered slime. Wait…what? Slime? Overpowered? Yes, Rimuru Tempest is the sworn brother of a Heavenly Dragon, Veldora; and he is a slime. Interesting, huh? Well, the fun has just begun. It is the story of how this slime became the centre of that world. This anime has everything you can ever ask for from typical day to day monsters to the Demon Lords. From basic fighting skills to deadliest magic, this anime about demons is a dream come true.
But how did it happen? How did I slime has so much authority? Satoru Mikami(now Rimuru Tempest) is an average 37-year-old guy living in Japan, but one day his death changes everything. While giving marriage advice to his students, he meets with an accident and is about to die. Surprisingly, Satoru is not panicking. The phenomena happen to only a few among millions; he connects to an AI or something, the Great Sage. The Great sage grants him powers for every problem he states, soon he dies and is reincarnated as a slime in a world of monsters and demons.
5. Seven Deadly Sins(Nanatsu no Taizai)
Nanatsu no Taizai(Seven Deadly Sins) is the best anime about demons. Honestly, if you have not watched it, you should not call yourself an otaku. Elizabeth Liones, a descendant of the Goddess clan and the third princess of the Kingdom of Brittania, decides to find out a group of one of the most vicious criminals who were once the heroes of the kingdom. But why? Ten years ago Nanatsu no Taizai, the heroes of the realm supposedly betrayed the King and were then supposed to be bested by the Holy Knights and their Commanders. But now the situation has changed, and the Holy Knights have shown their real face. The King has been captured, and the Knights in command have started a military rule in the kingdom, so the princess sets out to find the Seven Deadly Sins and their leader, Meliodas.
It is a group of the kingdom’s most dangerous criminals, and each of them has supposedly committed a grave crime. Hence they have the emblem on their bodies based upon the seven deadly sins from the mythology. On her quest, Elizabeth crosses paths with the captain of Seven Deadly Sins, Meliodas itself. Meliodas, Dragon’s Sin of Wrath is supposed to be a very dangerous man with the power to annihilate a whole kingdom single-handedly. How will it turn out? Go and watch!

Norman and Emma are two bright kids who have been living in a home from a very tender age waiting to be adopted by someone.

It all changes one day when one of the orphans named Conny gets adopted. She forgets to take her toy, Little Bunny.
Norman and Emma are left with two choices, whether to sit in the home or break the rule of not going outside the gate to give the gift to Conny. They choose the latter, but to their surprise, they find no one but a truck with their friend Conny dead inside. It turns out that the world has been taken over by the demons who eat humans as food. And the orphanage itself, the children have been living in is just for the production of food for the demons.
