Anime Recommendation: Hataraku Maou-sama!

Standard

English Translation of Lyrics
(Get out of your cage)
(True sky)

It all starts right here, right now
Let’s picture what we can do
Unbelievable things might happen
But we can overcome them all

(For our dreams)
Our dreams are born from nothing and take us (fly) to that shining sky
(Spread your wings)
I want to spread my wings
Now here I go, with the greatest smile on my face

Let’s set out to an unknown world
(Go to another world)
We’ll be the ones to choose and decide the future

Let’s chase after our dreams
There will be times when we cry, but they will be precious memories
Don’t fade away
I’m sure you’ll be able to meet your future self

(Get out of your cage)
(True sky)

Pleasantly unique would be a great description for this anime. Hataraku Maou-sama! takes the fish-out-of-water premise and spruces it up, with large doses of hilarious and interesting results.

I could never imagine a story in my wildest imaginations where people from another world (we are talking about a fantasy land with stuff like demons, warriors and powerful sorcery flying around) must seek part-time employment to survive in modern-day Japan. Continue reading
