Akuma Kun (2023) Anime Series on Netflix: A fun anime series with lots of demons (and food)

Akuma Kun is an anime series directed by Junichi Sato, and Fumitoshi Oizaki. The series is set to be released on November 9 on Netflix. It’s based on the manga by Shigeru Mizuki.

If you’re in the mood for a enjoyable Japanese animated series with a “retro” vibe, then you’re in luck because here comes Akuma Kun. He’s not the friendliest or funniest guy, but that’s why he’s quite amusing.

He has come to Earth to confront demons through pentagrams, curses, and more, but neither the demons nor society will make it easy for him or his assistant, Mephistopheles, who complains all day long.

This is a very entertaining series featuring the star Yuki Kaji, a true gem in Japanese voice acting who once again showcases his talent and versatility.

More than a “scary” series, it’s a delightful, pleasant series to watch that goes down as easily as demons devour food: quickly and in bite-sized episodes that always leave us wanting more.

Highly amusing and recommended!
