The Great Jahy had a good life. Of course, a magical girl decides to ruin it all. Now, she must deal with not only being small and powerless, but also the struggles of adulting and entering that rat race of living paycheck to paycheck.
The Great Jahy had a good life. Besides bossing her fellow demons in the Demon Realm, she lived life in luxury. Sadly, a magical girl comes in and decides to ruin her life. She aimed at the magical gem, the life force of the Demon Realm. With that, Jahy finds herself in the real world in Japan. Not only that, but she is also in her child form with hardly any powers.
While this sounds like the situation Yoshida Yuuko is in, but it’s a lot worse. Jahy lives in a very small apartment, those you will find in big cities in California and Japan but run down. She doesn’t even have a dedicated bath and must wash herself in a small metal tub.
Not only that, but she also works as a bar job with low pay using her necklace to transform into her adult form. Yep, she suffers the same life that some Millennials and Generation Z face. The struggles of adulting.
Yep, Jahy is in the rat race trying to earn enough money to survive. That is while trying to find the gems to reconstruct the Demon Realm. If only she can invest some money to generate passive income, she can spend all the time finding those gems without having to work. Still, I find it hilarious how she can only afford to eat bean sprouts. I would have thought she would live on packaged ramen. I guess ramen cost too much for her.
Of course, there is break time. I find it hilarious how the owner, who is well endowed trying to get Jahy to smile. Eventually, her empty stomach causes her to revert to her child form. She of course drops the necklace after transforming back. Now, she is afraid that the owner will fire her for working underage. Sure, she acted haughty and tried to attack her with a fork.
Of course, the owner hugs her, causing Jahy’s face to land on her big chest. She even gives her a raise with her monthly paycheck. She also gives her some fried chicken. As expected, Jahy seems to enjoy it despite not wanting to admit it. Yep, got to love her tsundere personality.
The next day, Ryou the Landlord demands rent from Jahy. Yep, rent is the bane of most people’s existence. Sadly, Jahy can’t depend on her usual antics as Ryou tries to drag her out when she refuses to pay. Of course, when that happens, she admits that she will pay. Eventually, Jahy manages to run out trying to escape Ryou in the marketplace. She eventually runs into the Owner. She eventually coaxes Jahy to pay the rent.
Lastly, there is the necklace as Jahy goes into a panic. Apparently, it was at the restaurant all along. To make matters worse, the Owner is wearing it. The funny thing is that only trivial bad things happen to her when she wore it. I find it funny how Jahy exaggerated the negative effects. Hopefully she will be a bit careful next time as she continues her quest to collect magic gems while adulting. Overall, the first episode was hilarious, and I can’t wait to see more.
