The Devil Is a Part-Timer! - Season 1 - Episode 5

Emi asks Lucifer how he survived their previous battle on Ente Isla but Sadao deduces that he was aided by her former comrade Olba Meiyā who had promised to return Lucifer to Heaven in exchange for his help, while Olba reveals himself to Emi's shock. Lucifer proceeds to attack Sadao and co. with Shirō taking a hit. As the group flee, Sadao explains to Emi that Lucifer draws his magic from negative emotions and hence was responsible for the string of muggings in Sasazuka. As they get cornered, Sadao teleports himself and Emi to the crowded Sasazuka Station. Here, the dumbstruck crowd looks on as Lucifer seemingly kills Sadao with a magical bullet and then destroys the overhead transport bridge. The debris head to crush Emi and Chiho but Satan emerges in his demonic form and using the negative emotions of the onlookers to fuel his magic, saves Emi and Chiho. After, Satan sets up a magical barrier, knocking all of the civilians unconscious while Emilia calls forth her magic and engages Lucifer in aerial combat. Alciel then shows up, healed, in his demonic form and joins the battle. Chiho looks on at the incredible scene at which point Satan finishes Olba and then Lucifer with a multi-layered magical punch. In the aftermath, Sadao and co. officially introduce themselves to Chiho. Just then Emi's comrades from Ente Isla, Emeralda Etūva and Albertio Ende arrive through a portal, reunite with Emi and explain the corrupt state of the Church back on Ente Isla. Afterwards at Sadao's apartment, Albertio explains he used the Sonar and Idea Link Spells which were intercepted by Chiho. Meanwhile, Satan uses his remaining magic to restore the city along with erasing the civilian's minds. Later, at MgRonald, Sadao explains to Chiho that he has enough left to erase her mind causing her to yell at him.

In the wake of Satan and Alciel's departure from Ente Isla, Emilia and her comrades give chase. Back in present-day Japan, Sadao tries to reason with Emilia; now under the identity Emi Yusa, although she ignores and tries to attack him. Afterwards, they are both arrested and brought to a police station for questioning where the officer in charge mistakes them for having a couple's quarrel, much to Emi's protest. On their way home, Emi threatens Sadao although he just shrugs. The following day while feeling angry that she isn't living a better lifestyle than Sadao, Emi pays them a visit. Shirō, in shock, locks her out but lets her in after Sadao casually explains her circumstances. After commenting on Sadao's lifestyle, she explains that she along with Archbishop Olba Meiyā were going to follow them through the portal before it disappeared but she ended up being the only one transported. Over the next few days, Emi begins stalking Sadao and Shirō around town and learns that they are living good humble lives. This prompts her to ask him after work if he had considered staying in the human world, to which he boldly states that he will return to conquer Ente Isla. Just then, they both come under a magical attack from a sniper and hurriedly escape. Sadao realizes they may have a common enemy and blames Emi before leaving for the night. Emi however shows up again at his apartment much to his suspicion and awkwardly asks if she could stay the night since she lives a distance away and lost her wallet while they were escaping. Sadao casually gives her sanctuary again to Shirō's shock while Emi tearfully ponders to herself how she got herself into that situation. That night, Sadao receives a mysterious text from Chiho warning that more earthquakes are on the way while asking for his advice.
