The description for the anime’s teaser trailer describes the story as:
Ike is known as “the strongest magician in the demon king’s army” and is single-handedly conquering fortresses.
The way he mowed down the enemies with his immense magic is truly monstrous and makes him feared by both allies and foes alike.
However, he had a secret that he could not tell other demons.
“”–I’m actually human.””
Aiming for a coexistence between demons and humans while the leader of the demon’s army is hiding the fact that he is actually a human!?
