Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou Promo Trailer Online

Posted on: February 8, 2010

This may be the closest we get to a Daibanchou anime.We’ve been getting a lot of good spring anime previews over the last couple weeks, and Marvelous Entertainment adds to the momentum with its promo for Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (“The Demon King in the Back”), now available on the anime’s official site.

The anime is based on a series of light novels (seriously, is there a light novel series that hasn’t been turned into anime yet?) about Sai Akutou (a pun on the word for “Villain”), a young man who comes to the prestigious Constant Magical Academy in the hope of becoming a benevolent wizard. But on the first day, his aptitude test tells him he’s most suited for becoming a demon king, and that starts a chain of events that lead to him being shunned by all the right people and wanted by all the wrong elements…

The ending song will be sung by Asou Natsuko of the BakaTest opening, and the opening will be performed by the popular seiyuu idol group Sphere, which is most notable for Tomatsu Haruka. The stars are lining up for this show to be a very fun series, but we’ll see what happens in April – it could be another BakaTest, but it could also end up being more like Qwaser or Rosario + Vampire. Pray for the former.
