Synopsis of Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!
Once respected as the second highest authority in the Demon Realm, the Demon King’s aide Jahy ruled over his subjects in fear. But when a magical girl attacks and destroys a mystical gem containing massive power, the Demon Realm is destroyed.
Although she survives, Jahy has lost almost all of her powers and finds herself stranded in the human world with a childlike appearance. In order to gather more mystical gems so that he can permanently restore both his original form and the Demon Realm, Jahy will have to adjust to his new life and deal with everyday problems that he had never experienced before. From working to pay living expenses to arguing with the landlord every time the rent is late, the great Jahy will not be discouraged!
