For those who are confused, the 3 seasons of the Devil is a Part-Timer series are titled as follows:

  1. The Devil is a Part-Timer!
  2. The Devil is a Part-Timer!!
  3. The Devil is a Part-Timer!! 2nd Season

So basically, the 12 episodes that aired in April 2013 is The Devil is a Part-Timer! (Season 1), followed by The Devil is a Part-Timer!!, i.e., Season 2 which aired from July – Sept 2022 and what’s going to release on July 13, 2023 is Season 3 titled “The Devil is a Part-Timer!! 2nd Season”, which continues from Season 2.

Yeah, the titling is confusing as heck. What were they thinking??!!

In addition, the opening and ending theme titles and artists were already revealed beforehand in April.

The opening theme “Hikari no nai Machi” (A Town Without Light) is performed by nano.RIPE whereas the ending theme “bloomin” will be performed by Liyuu.

nano.RIPE comments on their performance as follows:

“We also produced the music for the ending theme song “Suikagami no sekai” for the first cool song of the second season, and we are really happy that we are in charge of our own song, and that this is the first opening theme song.
The title “Hikari no Nai Machi” may seem hopeless at first glance, but we are very confident that we have put our own feelings and those of the work into this song.
We would be happy if you could listen to the full chorus as well as the TV version and enjoy it even more deeply.”

Liyuu also said a few words regarding her performance for the song “bloomin”:

“The TV anime “Hataraku Maou-sama!” which will start airing in July! I will be in charge of the ED theme for the 2nd Season!
I’m very happy to be in charge of the ED theme for the sequel to my favourite anime!
The song “bloomin'” has a fresh and gentle murmuring atmosphere. I’d be happy if you can feel like a blooming flower when you listen to this song!”

ASCII Media Works serialized it from 2011 to 2020, with a total of 27 volumes. The light novel series is published in English by Yen Press, and the plot is as follows:

Do you want fries with your hellfire?
A portal opens in the courtyard of the Devil’s Castle (a tiny walk-up). From it emerges a little girl who calls the Devil King “papa” and the Hero “mama.” Ashiya and Chiho are shocked to discover that Maou and Emi had that kind of relationship, but nobody’s more surprised than the two new “parents.” Will Maou the breadwinner be able to make the grade when it comes to child rearing? And will this spell the end of the starry-eyed Emi’s romantic ambitions?
