The Great Jahy, the Dark Realm’s second-in-command, cuts a frightening figure, feared and revered by all. But when a run-in with a magical girl results in the destruction of the precious mana crystal, the Dark Realm falls, transporting the newly puny and powerless Jahy to the human world! Unfortunately, plotting the revival of the Dark Realm from a cramped, crumbling one-room apartment is no easy feat when you have rent to pay and a job to keep!

Once feared and respected as the second strongest demon in the netherworld, Jahy has never been in need. Everyone feared and respected the great demon, who never respected her loyal subjects. However, one day, a Mahou Shoujo invades the netherworld kingdom and destroys the source of demon magic, making the ruler, Jahy, teleport to the human world with no authority, no money and no magic power whatsoever, which even makes her shrink and look like a child. But! The great Jahy will not be discouraged! However difficult the life in the human world may be, she will still find all the magic stones and restore her authority. Or will she? Basically Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! is your Hataraku Maou-sama!, but with no action and the protagonist here is a girl with a childlike appearance, or it is Machikado Mazoku, but the comedy here is quite lacking to say the least.  C-creativity. That said, if you want to see a really fun show, better to watch Machikado Mazoku. If you still want to watch this show, here we go again. Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai!’s main idea is not new to the industry at all, there are many more examples than just Hataraku Maou-sama! and Machikado Mazoku that share the same, or somewhat similar story. The show itself is not bad, it just feels that the only thing the creator of the series wanted to show the viewer is a girl with a childlike appearance that looks like Nagataro, but with cat ears. And that is it. Do not get me wrong, the anime is not bad and there is almost no fanservice and it is not that annoying, but seeing the same thing over 20 episodes is a little bit… tedious. It does have a fine comedy moments that will surely make you giggle a bit, but this will not be happening too much. That said, Jahy is not good, it is not bad either. It is just fine; slightly better than average. It is not a horrible show and if consumed little by little after school, or work, it is not that bad, but it could have been much better than that.


Edit for more context.While the animation isn't groundbreaking, it is more than adequate. It fits the manga and source material as well as the overall flavor of the series. The locations and backgrounds have just enough detail to make the world feel alive and part of the show, even if we do do only see snippets here and there. In fact the anime actualy adds more detail to many scenes than what are in the manga.The music of the OP/ED are great and I prefer the 2nd versions of both more than the first. Also the sound design, musical queues, and gags throughout are pretty good as well.Others have complained about the lack of story, however this could be two-fold. One people aren;t really paying much attention to the inter-connectivity of the story, or it isn't being presented properly. I prefer to see it as the former rather than the later. There is defeinitely story here and it is being told between gags and jabs.We haven't even gotten to all the characters yet, but there is enough diversity within them to give fans of just about any type of character or situation something to enjoy and/or laugh about.Straight up it is a solid and funny overall project. Especialyl if you are a fan of series like The Devil is a Part-Timer and other fid out of water comedy stories.People leaving bad reviews for this show are dumb. There is a difference between a bad series and a series you personally don't like. Anime "fans" don't seem to know how to separate that anymore.That is all.
