Devil_is_part_timer_bluray_unboxing_front

With Manga Entertainment’s UK DVD release of The Devil is a Part Timer being pretty much broke, as pointed out in our review due to poor audio quality and lack of chapter points, we decided to venture out and see if the Blu-ray release is any better; and luckily for us it is!

Better is the ‘best’ word to describe this set as it’s still far from perfect; as while the ‘tinny audio issue’ experienced within the DVD release is nowhere to be found this Blu-ray release still suffers from the other faults, such as lack of text during opening and closing songs and the in-correct chapter markers. Fortunately these can be ‘overlooked’ as everything else works as intended.

DVD Review: The Devil is a Part Timer – The Complete Series

Devil_Is_A_Part_Timer_Review_Screenshot (1)

What do you get when you pit Angels and Demons against each other? I’d usually say an epic battle but in the case of The Devil is a Part Timer that’s not exactly the correct answer; but it’s still insanely fun. Potential spoilers aside what did we think of this DVD release by Manga Entertainment UK; well continue reading to find out!

Synopsis:

When Satan is run out of his infernal kingdom, he finds himself virtually powerless in modern-day Tokyo. Stuck in a feeble mortal body and desperate for cash, there’s only one way for the dark lord to survive: by getting a job manning the deep fryer at “MgRonald”!

As Satan flips burgers and tries to regain his evil magic, he’s pestered by a righteous hero who tracked him to Earth, a video-game-loving fallen angel looking for a way back into heaven, and the most unholy of enemies: a rival fast food franchise. Will he figure out a way to reclaim his homeland and throne? And if not, will this demonic burger king at least sell enough featured menu items to be promoted to shift supervisor? The devil can’t survive on minimum wage! Read more of this post
