A Demon Lord returns to take revenge on his nemesis, only to find himself disappointed. ‘Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero’ is a comic take on the Demon Lord’s unfinished business with the hero, which would only work when the latter returns to his prime.
So, it is up to the Demon Lord to get his enemy back, leading to an unlikely alliance. Only time will tell how long that will last and if his efforts will bring results.
On Friday, the official website for the ‘Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero’ anime released a new promo and visual. The video previews the ending theme song for the anime and unveils the release date of July 3. It will also stream on HIDIVE.
The video starts with Max, the hero, in his room when the Demon Lord arrives with groceries. Zenia, the demon secretary, also joins them. Later, Fred, the monk, and Leo, the warrior, are shown fighting each other. They are also allies to Max, who tries to stop them from fighting.
Nenne has performed the ending song “Mirai=Teleport” in the background. The opening song was also previously revealed, which is “One Room Adventure” by MADKID.
The visual below also shows the moment from the video where Max arrives to intervene Fred and Leo’s fight.
The following cast members were revealed on the official website:
|Character||Voice Artist||Other Works|
|Max||Yūichi Nakamura||Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail)|

The overall theme of a ‘Demon Leader allying with a hero to fight him again’ sounds too familiar. However, the part where Max’s former allies are fighting is something different. The animation and the designs are good, so this seems a worthy comedy series.
