The Demon Girl Next Door takes a twist of what you'd think would be a typical high school, slice of life anime about a demon who is just trying to get by but instead gets met with a magical girl. The anime has quirky, comedy twists and turns throughout the anime, making it a funny and playful anime to watch. 

The overall story revolving around a newly awoken demon girl and a veteran magical girl stems a beautiful friendship combined with the troubles of growing up, learning life lessons and just figuring out how to be the best demon girl there possibly is. Some of the points feel slightly forced throughout the anime which can take away from the plot and it might not be for everyone as the story revolves around young girls who are still in school.

The animation is fairly good, on par with most things released, the action scenes were well done but not a lot of them to go off of. Most of the scenes were lifestyle scenes or of the characters hanging out. 

The characters have great development throughout the show, growing up and wanting to grow into their roles was a big part of the show. It was something that helped ease the use of comedy into the show while there were the comedic characters and the flat characters which made the duo perfect for each other. 

Overall this anime would be a great watch if someone was looking for a calming, comedic magical girl anime with a twist or looking for something that isn't your typical magical girl anime.
