The end is coming for another popular light novel series. This time it’s Satoshi Wagahara’s The Devil is a Part-Timer!, which is scheduled to conclude along with its 21st volume this summer.
The announcement comes from the final issue of Kadokawa’s Dengeki Bunko Magazine, which revealed the timing for the finale on April 25. The series kicked off back in 2011, and inspired a TV anime in 2013.
North American publisher Yen Press—which publishes the light novels and the manga adaptation by Akio Hiiragi—provides a synopsis:
After being soundly thrashed by the hero Emilia, the Devil King and his general beat a hasty retreat to a parallel universe… only to land plop in the middle of bustling, modern-day Tokyo! Lacking the magic necessary to return home, the two are forced to assume human identities and live average human lives until they can find a better solution. And to make ends meet, Satan finds gainful employment at a nearby fast food joint! With his devilish mind set on working his way up the management food chain, what will become of his thirst for conquest?!
