Done reading Hataraku Maou-sama 2 today. Took much longer than a week this time, crediting to various distractions. Below would be (hints to) spoilers for the first book if you haven’t read it.

Now with Sentucky Fried Chicken as a rival

It is 2 months after the ending of the first book and Lucifer is now a new tenant in Maou Sadao’s household, taking up the name Urushihara Hanzou and acting as the devil king’s IT department of sorts, as well as being a hikikomori. Emilia now has the upper hand against Sadao as she now has access to the means to recovering her powers at anytime unlike Sadao who could only use the collective despair in the events of a tragedy to recover his powers, yet Emilia was hesitant on fighting Sadao immediately as she was starting to doubt the higher ups of the faction she was fighting for. This volume also sees the introduction of Kamazuki Suzuno as the new neighbour that moved in next door to Sadao.

Volume 2 raised an interesting question for the series regarding the reason why Maou wanted to conquering the world. That should map the direction of the series to follow. Although volume 2 was physically thinker than volume 1, volume 2 definitely was less eventful compared to volume 1; it was touching a little bit of many things everywhere but didn’t really go much further, like it’s building up a foundation for something to follow, which it probably is. I’m also curious on how the author would work out succeeding major battles with Sadao requiring a large scale disaster to recover his powers; there was a disaster during the battle with Lucifer, there was a disaster again in the final battle this time, another one the next or the following time would be stretching it too far.
