Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist is an anime television series that premiered on TV TOKYO in Japan in July 2013. The series is based on a manga of the same name by Utako Yukihiro and was produced by the animation studio, Dogakobo. The show features Takuya Eguchi as William Twining, Jun Fukuyama as Dantalion, and Takuma Terashima as Sytry.

The story revolves around William Twining, a brilliant young student who comes from a wealthy aristocratic family in England. William is also a realist who believes in science and logic and has no interest in superstition or religion. However, after his uncle suddenly disappears, William discovers that his family is in dire financial straits and he is left with no choice but to search for a way to save their estate. While searching through his uncle’s belongings, William inadvertently summons the demon Dantalion from the underworld.

Dantalion informs William that he is the chosen one, the 'Elector', and he must choose the next demon king to rule over the underworld. William, being a realist, refuses to believe in such things as demons, let alone becoming an Elector, and dismisses Dantalion as hallucination. However, William's disbelief is challenged when he meets other demons, including Sytry, who is also vying for the throne.

As William learns more about the underworld and its inhabitants, he becomes more involved in demonic politics. William's conflict between his realist beliefs and the fantasy world he has discovered creates tension in the story. This tension is compounded by a host of political intrigues, power struggles, and conflicts between the different demon factions, with William becoming a pawn in their schemes.

The show's artwork is impressive, and the characters are well-designed and detailed, with each demon having its unique appearance and traits. The series also features a fantastic soundtrack that complements the show's dark and mysterious atmosphere, making the overall experience enjoyable.

The performances of the voice actors are another highlight of the show. Takuya Eguchi does an excellent job voicing William, portraying the character's confident and sarcastic nature, while also giving depth to William's internal conflicts. Jun Fukuyama's portrayal of Dantalion is also noteworthy, as he brings a depth of emotion to the character that would be difficult to convey with just visuals.

The series is divided into 12 episodes, with each episode having a runtime of about 24 minutes. The pacing of the show is excellent, with the plot moving forward at a steady pace, keeping the viewers engaged throughout the series. The storyline is linear, with each episode building on the previous one to unravel the mystery of the underworld and its political implications.

To sum it up, Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist is an exciting and engrossing anime series that offers a perfect blend of supernatural drama and political intrigue. The show's focus on character development and intense plot makes it a must-watch for anyone interested in the supernatural and thriller genres.

Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on July 7, 2013.
