The official website for the ComicFesta Anime of Kajiwara's isekai fantasy boys-love manga Everything for Demon King Evelogia (Maō Evelogia ni Mi o Sasage yo or Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World) opened on Wednesday. The website announced the anime's main cast, main staff, and September net premiere.
The main cast members are:
Shun Horie as Eve/Evelogia (also written as Ibrogia)
Takuya Satō as Gozu
Hitomi Nabatame as Tishia, a village maiden
Hiroki Yasumoto as Makidy, a fighter
Unlike many of the previous ComicFesta Anime projects, the main cast is the same for both the "on-air version" and the more explicit "premium version" of the anime.
Sanae Nagi is directing the anime at Studio Hōkiboshi, and Nagi is also writing the scripts with Eeyo Kurosaki (Overflow, The Titan's Bride, Fucked by My Best Friend). Yōko Iwakura is designing the characters, and Iwakura and Hisashi Nakamoto are serving as chief animation directors.
Ami Hoshino is the color key artist. Ayumi Aso (Makaria) is the art designer, and Momoko Satō is the art director. Takashi Yanagida is the compositing director of photography, and Kōki Shinkai is editing. Ayako Misawa is directing the sound at BlackFlag.
The anime's premium version will premiere first on the AnimeFesta service in September. It will then air on the Tokyo MX channel on October 1 at 25:00 (effectively, October 2 at 1:00 a.m.) before running on BS11. ComicFesta Anime's YouTube channel and other services will also stream the on-air version.
The story begins when an aimless young man named Toshiaki Gozu is killed on page 3, and resurrected as a background character in a game world he has been playing. Gozu encounters the Demon King Evelogia, the game's last boss whom Gozu has adored since he was little. Gozu begins to woo Evelogia by admitting, "I fell in love with you." Together, they aim to conquer the world.
Kajiwara (also written as Kaziwara) launched the manga on the ComicFesta and Mecha Comic digital services in Japan in April 2020, and the Coolmic service is releasing the manga in English with this teaser: "'Good, make me your owner.' The strongest couple to conquer the other world appears!?"
Suiseisha published the first volume of the manga in print on February 18, and the volume's special edition bundled a drama CD with the following cast:
- Shun Horie as "Eve" Evelogia (also written as Ibrogia)
- Takuya Satō as Gozu
- Daisuke Kageura as Yakuza member
- Masahiro Okazaki as Eve's father
- Noriko Fujimoto as Eve's mother
- Arashi Hirakawa as Boy #1
The new anime is part of the "ComicFesta Anime" series of anime shorts that have been streaming and airing since April 2017. The latest anime is Yubisaki kara no Honki no Netsujō 2: Koibito wa Shōbōshi (Fire From My Fingertips 2: My Lover is a Firefighter), the second anime season based on Tanishi Kawano's Yubisaki kara no Honki no Netsujō ~Kyara Otoko Shōbōshi wa Massugu na Me de Watashi o Idaita~ manga. The anime premiered on July 4 at 25:00 (effectively, July 5 at 1:00 a.m.) on the Tokyo MX and BS11 channels.
