The anime channel has revealed during Cosplay Mania 2019 on Saturday that The Demon Girl Next Door will premiere on the channel in November this year.
Yuko Yoshida is just an ordinary schoolgirl — until one day the demon Lilith unleashes her dormant, devilish powers! Yuko transforms into Shadow Mistress Yuko, a supernatural powerhouse with horns and a devil tail. Now she must defeat another mystical being named Momo Chiyoda, the shrine maiden of the Light Clan who just so happens to go to Yuko’s school! But being a demonic magical girl isn’t as easy as it looks, and Yuko has a lot to learn before she’s ready to fulfill her destiny. (Synopsis from Sentai Filmworks)
