Zagan is feared by the masses as an evil sorcerer. Both socially awkward and foulmouthed, he spends his days studying sorcery while beating down any trespassers within his domain. One day he's invited to a dark auction, and what he finds there is an elven slave girl of peerless beauty, Nephy. Having fallen in love at first sight, Zagan uses up his entire fortune to purchase her, but being a poor conversationalist, he has no idea how to properly interact with her. Thus, the awkward cohabitation of a sorcerer who has no idea how to convey his love and his slave who yearns for her master but has no idea how to appeal to him begins.

In a world where all mages are seen as callous and devoid of morals, Zagan is a mage who appears to be callous and devoid of morals. But then fe falls in love at first sight with an elf girl, Nephie, and buys fem at the slave auction. And though fe starts softening and wanting to be kind, fe doesn't know how to properly express femself and ends up coming across as brash and condescending. The first section of this manga plays into this miscommunication for some cute humor; it eventually becomes less of a focal point once they have Nephie and others be able to recognize feir true feelings beneath feir awkwardness. At that point, the manga starts focusing on undercovering some of the ancient secrets of magic relating to the demons, the demon lord seals, and the inscriptions on the holy swords. I like the direction the manga is taking. Zagan is made into one of the 13 demon lords and has confrontations with other mages (Barbaros, Fol) as well as with the holy knights from the church (Chastel, Raphael). Fe gains some allies, develops goodwill among the townspeople, and basically starts creating a makeshift family--all things which fe would never have done with feir previous loner attitude.

Eh, it's not good but not bad either. The plot is really generic, the action is generic, the way the characters act is generic so you get bored easily. It started off really good, you expect to have some kind of mix between comedy and dark humor with a bit of gore element but it quickly turn into some kind of harem. Villains are not actually villains and the people who want to kill the mc are not actually bad. I hate this greater good thing where characters play the villain role to then wait before their death to reveal the truth that they were in fact doing some good. It's annoying.
