When coming back from a long hiatus a show really can either hit the ground at full speed or ease into it a bit to get people reacquainted. Hataraku Maou-sama decided to mostly go with the later approach with a hook at the end of the episode to kick start the return of the show. It didn’t make for a bad episode since it really has been a while since I watched this one. But it also made for a pretty easy-going episode that had a few moments that dragged on a bit. The comedy of the show of course is going to relate to Demon Lords and powerful heroes doing mundane things. But a few moments didn’t quite have the comedic punch that I would have hoped for.
