I like how they animate/draw the glutton ring spirit, it's kinda cute. A lot of things in this show are cute actually, like the demonitors.

Clara's sexy pose is truly amazing.

Her '10% power' moment is the cherry on top.

Also, the demon world is lucky she's an idiot with no ambition for power. Making it rain vending machines would be a pretty top-tier power.

I binge read the manga after watching ep 3 and I'm excited for so many scenes to get animated. I'm also impressed with the amount of effort the anime production is putting in the show, from the quality of the art to the extra details being added to set up future episodes. If only a certain other supernatural slice of life anime had that kind of dedication...

If you were described the setting elements, you wouldn't be amiss in thinking this would be some sort of supernatural battle shounen where everyone has a gimmick power as they fight their way to the top. Instead, it's a school comedy set in that sort of world.

My only issue is that if it's been passed down for generations, why does it looks like a manga that's not older than the 80s? Unless it's a magical collection that keeps adding to itself (which is possible I guess)

zatch bell is a shonen battle manga that doesn't have a single original bone in its entire body but is still one of my favorite battle shonens because the execution is so incredibly on point the entire way through and all the characters are wonderful.

the same goes for iruma-kun, but for the high school hijinks genre.

I just binged all the available episodes throughout yesterday, and this is a super promising show.

- Opening is catchy
- Iruma's parents are just the worst
- Pretty sure Iruma and Asmodeus have launched plenty of ships already
- Clara is amazing, and I love her
- Angry teacher is also amazing, and I love him too

Regarding the latest chapter and some previous ones, it's pretty cool that Sabnock has actually learned quite a bit from interacting with Iruma et al. His first appearance was trying to fight a teacher to establish his power, then taking the 'this will kill you' route in the flying test, which would have were it not for Iruma. Typical meathead 'fighting power is everything I need to be Demon King' attitude.

Then we see him joining the Demon King Club, and when he learns it's about researching previous demon kings he's still all-in on it. His apology to the teacher was genuine, and a sign of growth, and now he's in the smart-half of the class. Some real progress for the rowdy boy.


Pervert Owl is gonna need quite a bit more than that to be redeemed though. Still the worst class member.

Im loving all the classmate interactions. Something as tiny as Clara trying to explain things with sound effects and Sabro jumping in with his own sound effects was funny to me

So when reading scanlated stuff is it normal for there to be a few chapters way later on translated after the mass of contiguous chapters? Iíve been enjoying Iruma kun and so started the manga and finished the sequential chapters available. I have to say though that I am stumped as to whether should wait for the like 50 chapter gap to fill in or not. What are peopleís thoughts on this?
I was wondering what people more familiar with the story thought too.

No it's not normal and looking at the chapters ahead they all seem to be in the middle of arcs so it feels pointless to read them right now, but apparently this is someone trolling? Weird way to stir up poo poo.

Anyway anyone know how many chapters Japan has?
