Anime Network Online have let us know that they are proud to premiere the comedy series “ICHIBAN USHIRO NO DAIMAO” this month.
The series is directed by Takashi Watanabe who has been involved with such anime as Slayers, Boogiepop Phantom and Fist of the North Star. Here’s a synopsis for you:
From Marvelous Entertainment (Mushi-shi, Air Gear) and Artland (Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Legend of the Galactic Heroes) comes the story of young Akuto Sai, a new student at Constan Magical Academy. On the day of admittance, his aptitude test has predicted his future occupation as…Devil King. And so begins the trials and tribulations of school life as he is hounded by do-gooders, self appointed protectors, and overzealous followers. In this school, there’s no rest for the Devil King.
The series is available to view in ANO’s online player from April 2nd 2010. You need to be a registered user to watch the show but registration is free, and apparently so is viewing the simulcast!
