The beginning of a tale of adventure with an earth-shakingly powerful Demon Lord (or at least someone who acts like one) taking on another world!
In the MMORPG Cross Reverie, Takuma Sakamoto is so powerful that he is lauded as the “Demon Lord” by other players. One day, he is summoned to a world outside his own— but with the same appearance he had in the game! There, he meets two girls who both proclaim themselves to be his Summoner. They perform an Enslavement Ritual to turn him into their Summon... but that’s when Takuma’s passive ability "Magic Reflection" activates! Instead, it is the girls who become enslaved! Though Takuma may be the strongest Sorcerer there is, he has no idea how to talk with other people. It is here he makes his choice: to act based on his persona from the game! “Amazing? But of course... I am Diablo, the being known and feared as the Demon Lord!”

The story is very typical of slapstick harem/LitRPG with a sort of game error making the protagonist who is trapped inside of his videogame persona (a high level demon lord named Diablo) the unwarranted owner of two female magician slaves. This harem novel series gave me a lot of vibes from DearS except that he has a bit of a backbone despite being the kind of nasty troll who would level up by playing incessantly for months just to kill off characters with spouses because he is too socially awkward to get a girlfriend of his own. Now that Diablo is accidentally stuck with an elf slave named Shera and a catgirl named Rem who posesses a dangerous secret, he isn't sure if he wants to find a way to release the two quarreling girls from accidental slavery with all of the public humilliation it has brought them, or enjoy living a life trapped in the game without knowing what to do next. All in all, I entered the novel with low expectations and it was indeed better than I feared. The artwork is nice albeit nothing that stands out above similar works, and at least it has more of a linear plot than DearS. I think I'll continue reading. 3 1/2 stars for me!

Bit perverse but fun story. Excellent translation and much easier to read than many light novel translations. Somewhat ecchi so not recommended for younger readers
