Distributor: Geneon Animation
[Kyo Kara Maoh!]
Yuri Shibuya is an average baseball-loving high school student. When he decides to take a stand against some local bullies, they decide dunk him in a toilet and Yuri finds himself sucked into another world! He lands in a strange new world populated by warring humans and demons. When the demons announce that he is their new "Maoh" (Demon King), Yuri's convinced that they must have got it wrong. He's not alone in that opinion and some of the other nobles who are eyeing the throne for themselves are already taking action.
