Synopsis of Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
When it comes to the fantasy MMORPG, Cross Reverie, none can match the power of the Demon King Devil. Possessing the rarest artifacts in the game and an unrivaled player level, he dominates all who are foolish enough to face him. But despite his fearsome reputation, Diablo's true identity is Takuma Sakamoto, a hikikomori gamer devoid of social skills. Defeating desperate challengers day by day, Takuma cares about nothing more than his virtual life, that is, until a summoning spell suddenly transports him to another world where he has the appearance of Diablo. In this new world that resembles his favorite game, Takuma is greeted by the two girls who summoned him: Rem Galeu, a little Pantherian adventurer, and Shera L. Greenwood, a busty summoning elf elf. They perform a ritual of slavery in an attempt to subjugate him, but the spell fails and causes them to become his slaves. With the situation now more awkward than ever, Takuma decides to accompany the girls in their search for a way to undo his contract while he learns to adjust to his new existence as the menacing Demon King.
