What is the main plot of ‘How Not to Summon a Demon Lord’?
Takuma Sakamoto was a young boy who used to play a video game called “Cross Reverie.” His character in the game was called Diablo, who was actually the Demon King. He was a great player, and it was tough to beat him. One day, he was suddenly summoned to the virtual, fantasy world of “Cross Reverie,” where he appeared in the body of the Demon Lord Diablo. In this fictional world, he came across two beautiful girls who wished for Takuma to be their slave. Being a powerful character, Diablo used the ability of his magical ring, which somehow made the two girls his slave instead.
One was an elf named Shera, and the other one was a pantherian named Rem. They get collars stuck around their necks which would not come off until the spell of Diablo’s magical ring was broken. Takuma, back home, used to be a very shy and introverted boy. Hence, he was feeling a little anxious in this unknown world with two beautiful girls at his service. He does not let his nervousness get in the way as he pretends to be outgoing, outspoken, and courageous. He manages to survive in this fantasy world because he was such amazing gameplay. Takuma used his gaming skills to get through all the adventures he experienced over there with Shera and Rem while simultaneously looking for a way to get those collars off of them.
