Best Demon Anime to Watch

I think there is a big preference for stories with Demon Lord involved in anime. This is why Demon Anime is quite popular these days. If you recently watched this genre and wanted to watch more, then consider the series mentioned below.

Demon slayer (2019)

Most likely you have already watched this anime considering your looking for a demon anime to watch. However, if you haven’t watched it yet, check the trailer below and I am most certainly sure what you will do next.

Demon Slayer anime is the story of a man named Tanjiro whose entire family was murdered by a demon. The only one left was his sister Nezuko but it turned out that she’s turned into a demon. Tanjiro starts a journey to find a cure to make his sister human again.

This anime became a hit because of its excellent character design, top-notched animation, wonderful and compelling story. And I would let you know in advance that all the action scenes in this anime will surely keep you at the edge of your seat. The fight scenes are jaw-dropping. You will certainly enjoy every Demon Slayer episode you’ll watch.

How NOT to Summon a Demon Lord (2018)

This anime show is another anime with an overpowered main character. If you a fan of this genre, this would surely excite you. It’s an Isekai anime where our main character was transported to another world where he becomes a character in a game called Diablo.

I think Sakamoto or Diablo in the fantasy world is an excellent main character. He is pretty funny and very much likable. Even though he is very much powerful, he doesn’t mindlessly use it. He uses the strategies he learned while playing online games. The other 2 main characters are Rem and Shera. Rem is kind of a serious type while Shera is the funny one. Basically, this demon lord anime is about the journey of these 3 characters.

When it comes to animation, it’s good enough for me. But there are times that I find it too simple especially the characters. I would say that it is a good show and would recommend it to anyone who doesn’t mind some ecchi content.

Black Butler (2014)

This anime show has a good balance of drama and comedy. Even though it’s an old anime, it does not make it less interesting. It’s one of those anime series that you’ll enjoy even if it has been released some years ago. Each character is interesting enough to keep you watching it. In this anime, a lot f non-human creatures are included like reapers, demons, and angels.

The story of the anime follows the life of an orphan, Ciel Phantomhive. He is in the pursuit of finding the people who killed his parents. I would highly recommend this anime especially those who are a fan of classic anime.


The Demon Girl Next Door (2019)

The demon girl next door is a new anime that you should also not miss watching. Though it’s not that great compared to other anime series like Demon Slayer, it still a good watch for sure.

Go watch this anime if you are looking for one that will give you a good laugh. The anime is silly and pretty much hilarious throughout. It is not just a demon anime with magic powers but it also has a slice of life touch. The main characters are pretty much effective in bringing fun to this anime. Especially the main characters Yuuko and Momo. It’s not the usual show since its a demon girl anime. We all know that most often, demon anime characters are boys.

Inuysha (2009)

inuyasha - demon anime

This classic demon anime is a must-watch for everyone. I suggest anyone new to anime should watch this first. Though it’s an old anime, you’ll certainly enjoy watching it especially the love story of the main characters Inuyasha and Kagome.

The whole story is entertaining, the characters are likable and easy to remember plus good artwork. All these make the anime so good to follow. Though it’s a fun anime, you will discover that it also has its dark and violent side. I think this makes it more interesting.

Yu Yu Hakusho (1992)

Yu Yu Hakusho is yet another classic anime where our main characters battle different kinds of demon in a different world. Even our main character Yusuke has the blood of a demon. He journeys together with his friends Hiei, Kurama and Kuwabara in order to protect the Earth from evil people.

Though the anime is old, you’ll still enjoy the fight scenes in this anime. The characters are very much interesting as well so you’ll be motivated to watch all its episodes. It’s a good story about true friendship.

Demon Lord, Retry! (2017)

Demon Lord, Retry is an isekai anime. It’s the story of Hakuto Kunai who got transported to a fantasy world where his body is one of his online game characters. He eventually met Aku which he saved and their story started from there.

The first thing I noticed with this anime is that it does not take the serious type of anime like Overlord and Goblin Slayer. In the first few episodes I have watched, it tries to make things lighter with some funny scenes. Which most of the time worked, in my own perspective.

Devil Is A Part-Timer! (2013)

the devil is a part-timer - demon anime

This show is an isekai anime where the main protagonist the Devil himself got transported to the real world. So it’s kind of a unique setup where the main character is transported to a fantasy world. This time, its the Demon King – Satan who was sent to the real world as an escape route.

And since the anime devil known as Satan is now on the real world, of course, he could not anymore use his powers to the fullest. That is why he is trying to survive as a normal person who works in a fast-food restaurant.

What I liked about this anime is its fun to watch. It’s entertaining enough to keep on watching each episode.

High School dxd (2012)

If you are a fan of harem, genre, then you’ll definitely love this demon anime. The best thing with high school DXD is it has a good storyline. This fact together with cool characters and funny scenes makes it an enjoyable anime to watch.

The whole story of this anime is quite simple which makes it great. It’s not too dragging and complicated, just enough to make it fun. The animation and character design are both excellent. Though something changed a bit on Season 4. I think the previous 3 seasons were better in terms of animation and design. I would recommend this anime to anyone even those who just started watching anime.


Demon King Daimao (2010)

Demon King Daimao is the story of Akuto Sai who went to a magical academy. Unfortunately for Akuto, he also learned in this school that his future job will be a Demon King. After people learned about this, all eyes are on him including all villains.

The good thing about this anime is the different plot it offers to viewers. But, if you are looking for a serious type of anime, this will not entertain you. However, if you want to have a good laugh while watching an anime, then it’s one that you should try.

When it comes to the artwork, it is not outstanding but good enough for me. The animation is better compared to individual character designs. You will surely have fun watching this anime considering how fun the main characters are. I suggest when you watch this anime, don’t try to expect something, just enjoy it and you’ll definitely end up having a good laugh.
