Basic Story Premise: You want 10 more days to live so that you can see your parents who are flying in from overseas to see you. You’ve chosen Satoru to be your personal demon. At first it seemed like a great idea, but it doesn’t take you long to realize you may have chosen badly. The two of you have a hard time seeing eye to eye because he inherently mistrusts people. He also views humans (particularly women) as tools. Only the ones that can help him advance in his career or be of use to him in any other way are worth his time. Why does Satoru have such a pessimistic outlook on life? And why do you find yourself falling for this rough demon? As you come closer to your last days, the demons inform you that some important people from your life are fated to die because of last minute changes to the Fate Database. What sacrifies will you (and possibly Satoru?) make to try to save them?
My review with screenshots, some spoilers, and the CGs after the jump!
Satoru: Satoru is a gorgeous but arrogant devil. He is also very good at insulting the MC. Repeatedly. For the first 9 chapters of his story. So be prepared to be verbally abused, pushed around, and neglected until Chapter 10. Luckily, the MC in this story does not cry easily, and she manages to turn some of his rudeness into cute and funny situations. Like in this gif.
Although it does take 9 chapters, MC is able to worm her way into Satoru’s heart by Chapter 10. And then you will be flooded with his redeemingly good qualities. Don’t worry: he’s worth the wait.
My Opinion: This is the first story I bought for the Devil series, and I thoroughly enjoyed learning about Voltage’s new world. Satoru can be calculating and cold, but his back story explains why he is that way. And when he decides to finally open up his heart, his commitment to you is absolute. (Hey, every girl wants commitment like that, right?)
The story itself is more like a romantic drama: it focuses mostly on interactions between MC and her demon. If you are looking for a story full of action and danger (like in the Knights series or the Thief stories), you will be disappointed here. However, if you are looking for cute and funny, you’ve come to the right place.
And as always in Voltage stories, the boys are always so entertaining when they are together. The demons do not disapoint. Here’s Shiki’s response when he and the other boys realize that Satoru has feelings for you.
The Endings: There are 2 endings available: Super Happy and Happy. Once you finish the story, you can read through both endings from the chapter select screen. Both endings start the same way: Satoru does not actually get terminated and is rewarded with a wish for his great work. He wishes for you not to die. In the Happy Ending, you share your good news with the rest of the demons and celebrate at home. When the other demons get drunk and touchy feely, Satoru gets jealous and takes you up to his room where the two of you confess your feelings. In the Super Happy Ending, the two of you go on a nice date which finishes with Satoru taking you to a hotel room upstairs.
And here are the cute CGs!
