The core narrative follows Akira Ōno, an ordinary individual employed at a company overseeing an online game. Frequently assuming the role of his in-game character “Maō” (Dark Lord), his life takes a surreal turn when he finds himself transported into the game’s fantastical realm as his own character. In this world, he encounters a girl with a single leg, embarking on a series of adventures by her side. However, as a formidable “Dark Lord,” he inadvertently draws the attention of various nations and virtuous maidens, resulting in chaotic situations wherever he goes.

The story of “Demon Lord, Retry!” was initially shared by Kanzaki on platforms like “Shōsetsuka ni Narō” (Let’s Become Novelists) and Hameln websites from October to December 2016. A separate side story chapter, unrelated to the main narrative, was published by Kanzaki in September 2018.

Futabasha commenced the publication of the story as light novel volumes, complete with illustrations by Kōji Ogata, in June 2017. Notably, the novels underwent a reprinting under the M Novels label of Futabasha, featuring fresh artwork by the illustrator and animator Makoto Iino. The eighth volume hit bookshelves in November 2021, with the ninth volume slated for release on September 29.

Manga artist Amaru Minotake embarked on a manga adaptation of the narrative in October 2017, which was serialized on Futabasha’s Web Comic Action site. The fifth and final volume of this adaptation reached readers in Japan in December 2019.
