Hataraku Maou-sama! Random Poll Question Results

So after the character popularity poll, I did around two more polls on the Discord server. Around 40+ people replied. Seeing that they are more than 1000 members on the server, seeing only 40+ people replying to the polls gives me an idea of how many people actually bother about these random things haha.

Anyway, below are the questions and the results.

What are your Top 5 favourite scenes in Hataraku Maou-sama?
All scenes in the light novel anime and manga count, up until the plot in Volume 16 of the light novel. Top 10 favourite scenes are as follows:

1 Vol 9 Vol 9: Maou and Suzuno talking around the campfire (including the almost love confession and Maou’s confession about his actions) 58
1 Vol 12 Vol 12: Emi hugging Maou 58
2 Vol 8 Vol 8: Lucifer stopping the fireball to save Suzuno and Chiho 31
3 Vol 0-II Vol 0-II: Lucifer and Satan’s conversation when they ran away from the silver arm clan (including the head pat) 30
4 Vol 3 Vol 3: After Alas=Ramus calls Maou and Emi Papa and Mama (including Ashiya fainting) 27
5 Vol 0 Vol 0: Satan and Lucifer’s first meeting 23
6 Vol 13 Vol 13: Rika’s confession and Ashiya’s response 21
7 Vol 1 Vol 1: Maou giving Emi his umbrella 18
8 Vol 16 Vol 16: Emi secretly leaving chocolate for Maou 15
9 Vol 5.5 Vol 5.5: Emi educating Maou on farming while harvesting eggplants 14
10 Vol 4 Vol 4: Maou grabbing Emi by the shoulder and bragging that he has the holy sword 12
10 Vol 7 Vol 7: Maou, Emi and Alas=Ramus’s futon buying trip 12

For the second poll, the question was Which characters in Hataraku Maou-sama! do you want to be your older brother/older sister/younger brother/younger sister? The results are as follows with reasons.

Rank Older Brother Points Reasons
1 Ashiya 22 Able to do housework, reliable and responsible, people are aware he can be naggy
2 Maou 11 Responsible, reliable, would seem like a fun older brother
Rank Younger Brother Points Reasons
1 Lucifer 24 Cute, want to spoil him, fun to tease, able to play games together
2 Maou 9 Able to take care of himself, nice person, able to whack him for stringing girls along
Rank Older Sister Points Reasons
1 Suzuno 13 Can cook, motherly personality, would be able to maintain order in the house
2 Kisaki 11 Dependable, able to get good advice from her
1 Alas=Ramus 11 Really cute, want to see her grow up
2 Acies=Ala 10 Would be a fun younger sister, can cause trouble together

I don’t see how Lucifer can win also overwhelmingly over Maou in the younger brother department XD Is it because most of the people who bother to vote are Lucifer fans?

Hataraku Maou-sama! Volume 0-II

It’s been a long time, so I’m releasing the unedited version of Volume 0-II. The prologue is 90% edited, but the rest of the volume isn’t.

As usual, it will be up here for one week before it is taken down.

The password hint for the volume is “The first name of the character referenced in the Hatamaou Quiz” followed by the ISBN-10 number of the Japanese version of Volume 0-II novel. The name is all in lowercase letters .

Download the Hatamaou quiz (get all the questions correct and line up all the letters underlined in red).

For the password format, check the FAQs.

Enjoy!

Hataraku Maou-sama! Quiz

To celebrate the release of Hataraku Maou-sama Volume 20 in Japan, I created a Hataraku Maou-sama! quiz for everyone to try.

It can be downloaded below:
Dropbox: Download
Google Drive: Download

The quiz covers material up to Volume 16. It’s not closed book and there’s no time limit, but it would be much more fun to see how many questions you can answer without having to refer to the novels.  It would be nice to know how everyone scored, so leave a comment with your score ^_^

So as not to spoil the fun for others, please do not share the answers in the comments, I will delete them if I see those.

Note 1: The lines do indicate the length and number of words in the answer, so take that as a hint.

Note 2: Certain lines are coloured red for a reason. I’m not going to reveal the reason though.

Have fun!

D.Gray-man Fanbook Gray Log Interview

I added the translation for the interview in the D.Gray-man Fanbook Gray Log.

It’s a talk between Hoshino Katsura,  Murase Ayumu-san (voice actor for Allen and Nea) and Aoyama Yutaka (voice actor for the Millennium Earl and Mana). They talk about voice acting, their favourite characters in D.Gray-man and Hoshino also mentions things in her childhood which may have inspired some ideas in D.Gray-man.

The translation is in the D.Gray-man page as usual.

D.Gray-man Fanbook Chara Gray Interview

I added a translation for the D.Gray-man Fanbook Chara Gray. It’s an interview with Hoshino Katsura. She talks about the results of the Character General Election (results were published in the fanbook), the Alma arc, her research trip to New York, the fan signing event she held in Germany and Japan and other things. It’s from 2011, but it’s still a good read.

You can find the translations under the D.Gray-man page.
