What happened in The Devil is a Part-Timer! thus far?
The demon lord Satan (Maou Sadao) and his general Alciel escape their dying world of Ente Isla through a portal that lands them in modern-day Tokyo. Stripped of their powers, they live as ordinary humans, working part-time jobs. They soon encounter the hero Emilia, who also traveled through the portal to defeat Maou. Though initially adversaries, Maou and Emilia end up allying against other threats from Ente Isla.
In season 2, Maou and Emilia discover an infant girl named Alas Ramus, who turns out to be a holy sword fragment that allows Emilia to defeat the angel Gabriel. Gabriel returns to kidnap Alas and others but is thwarted by Maou, Emilia, and allies.
Season 3 begins with Emilia disappearing to Ente Isla after learning her father is alive. Maou’s group is attacked by the demon Libicocco but saved by Emilia’s sister Acieth and father Nord. Gabriel kidnaps Nord and Alciel, so Maou’s group travels to Ente Isla to rescue them and Emilia. The season ends after the final showdown and heartwarming reunion between Emilia and her father.
The Devil is a Part-Timer! Light Novels
The Devil is a Part-Timer! originated as a light novel series written by Satoshi Wagahara, which was published from 2011 to 2022 and spanned 21 volumes. The popular light novels were adapted into both an anime series and an ongoing manga series. The anime closely follows the story of the novels, covering volumes 1-2 in season 1, volumes 2-5 in season 2, and volumes 6-10 in season 3.
The manga also adapts the same story but takes some liberties, with variations, skipped events, and timeline changes compared to the novels. Overall, the light novel provides the canonical source material and plotlines for the franchises, while the anime and manga offer adapted retellings of the core story through animation and illustration. The light novels establish the canon that the other adaptations draw from.
What to Expect from The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 4?
After resolving the conflicts in Ente Isla during Season 3, the main characters will return to Japan and the anime is expected to go back to its relaxed slice-of-life theme. Emilia’s father Nord will now be living with Emilia, allowing their father-daughter relationship to grow after being separated for so long.
A major source of Emilia’s rivalry with Maou was her belief that he killed her father, but with Nord alive, her vengeance no longer has meaning. This opens the door for Emilia and Maou’s relationship to evolve, potentially becoming closer, though their amusing bickering would certainly be missed.
With the characters back in Japan, Season 4 will likely focus on their normal lives again – going to school, working part-time jobs, and finding their place in a world not their own. But new threats or mysteries could still emerge to disrupt the peace.
