Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera: Demons Come Forth! (Ep.1)

The story revolves around a boy named Enma, who is a member of the Demon Patrol. A team of demons sent by the underworld to the realm of humans to subdue and capture rampaging demons that causes chaos and disorder. ­­

At the beginning, I though this would be a childish show that would bore me to death but giving it a chance, I watched it till the end of the episode and I was surprised. The show was actually good or at least quite decent. The animation so far is excellent, but then again most animated series have decent to excellent pilot episodes to lure in viewers into thinking that the show is actually quite good so we should give this show till episode 4 to see if the animation quality will remain consistent.  The show is full of dirty humor like that underwear floating on the above image, but with lovable characters such as Princess Yukiko and Harumi, who wouldn't want a little fanservice? I for one would like a lot, though I don't want it to have fanservice levels on par with Queens Blade, now that's a show which is pure fanservice.

Since this is the first episode of the series, let me first introduce the characters:

The Great Enma
The boy you see here is Enma, the main character of the show. A perverted boy who likes flipping women's skirts to see what's underneath. He is sent by the underworld to capture the demons but he always seem to forget that fact and ends up destroying the enemy with his giant hammer. Enma is voiced by Kappei Yamaguchi who is famed for voicing Inuyasha (Inuyasha) and L (Death Note).

Princess Yukiko the Snow Maiden
This is Princess Yukiko, a snow maiden. If you don't know what a snow maiden is, it's some type of ghost that appears during winter at mountainous areas where people disappears and never comes back. Yukiko is definitely one of the reason why I'm watching this show. Voiced by Mamiko Noto who is known for voicing Kotomi Ichinose (Clannad) and Tomoe (Queen's Blade).

Harumi the Human Girl

This is Harumi, the female protagonist of the show. She is somewhat an unofficial member of the Demon Patrol which makes her the only human member. She meets the team at the school campus when a demon that steals faces attacks her. She is voiced by Ayako Kawasumi one of my favorite voice actress known to have voiced Saber (Fate/Stay Night) and Leina Vance (Queen's Blade).

Kappaeru the Water Imp
This is Kappaeru. He is some kind of Japanese sea monster that appears on coasts to feed on cucumbers or something like that. He's the scout of Demon Patrol and likes to brag that he's some kind of handsome youth and girl magnet but nobody actually takes him seriously and people just ignores him.

Old Chapeau the Talking Hat

Chapeau is the brains in the team giving them knowledge and info about what their enemy would be like and how to defeat them. He's a damn talking hat, enough said!

This ends my review for this episode.
Stay tuned for more!
