Synopsis of Isekai Maou to Shoukan Shoujo no Dorei Majutsu
Takuma Sakamoto is a hikkikomori gamer who is mysteriously transported to the virtual world of the game “Cross Reverie”, with the appearance of his character, the demon lord Diablo. The two girls who summoned him, Rem and Shera, try to use a spell to make him their servant, but Diablo’s reflection magic reverses the spell and it is they who become his slaves.
With a serious case of social anxiety, Diablo decides to act like his character and interact with others, without letting his ridiculously high stats and vast knowledge about the world reveal.
