I'm wondering if we'll see a secret connection between Mom and the Demon king?

Anyway, was cute. :D

I'll be honest - I don't read much romantic tension from this. More like siblings*/friends**, as those random characters implied.

*not the Mocchi type of siblings
**not the Nettaigyo type of friends

I would have agreed with you, until this chapter, but this one seemed full of romantic tension.

It just doesn't quite convince me.
Sleeps together -> nothing
Sits on the train together -> nothing
Walk around shopping -> nothing
Get separated, Mao being a teeny bit possessive (of a pet) -> oh, a tiny bit of romance!

Errrm. Feels weak.

Only a few chapters in and I want an anime adaptation. Love Shiva’s character. Can’t wait to see how she’s explained to Nio explains this to her friends. Chidori is also too cute.

I see the romance being a very gradual/slow process. Demon King is unlikely to ever become flustered or hesitant about affection, likely showing great confidence in most(if not all) situations, so when Nio starts to develop deeper feelings little will likely change in the way Demon King acts. Sure, she calls Nio their pet, but one could argue that's just her unique way of affection. Assuming she was actually looking for a lover, it could also be that Demon King has long since considered the likely limited lifespan of their future "lover" compared to their own lifespan, so calling them pet could be a potential coping mechanism.

Of course, I could be reading too much into this like I often do. For all I know it's actually as simple as Demon King wanting a specific human for a pet and chose Nio, with the idea that if things happen to get romantic then so be it.

I get the feeling that there will be some drama in the future revolving around Demon King's blood-drenched past/destructive nature.

Why Demon King instead of Demon Queen?

Because that's literally what "maou" means. It's also something of a (nowadays often satirized) trope in JP fantasy stories/games/etcetera in itself which is no doubt part of the joke here.

Incomplete sentences bother me, clearly it should be “it’s the urge to destroy your pussy

Also, the demon king/girl remind me of that one webtoon. They even look similar

Mage & Demon Queen I'm guessing, though it's pretty debatable how much alike Velverosa and Sheep MonsterShiva look.

That was cute. Bit of a darker side to the Demon King showing...

The urge to destroy sandcastles is universal and not demonic at all.

Well they should quit being frail or start being too cute to crush.

I don't really get what makes Nio tick. She's the weakest link of this whole story so far. Surely there must have been some reason why DK chose her as a pet, but beyond that her character is underwhelming.

Somehow I don't really feel the pairing, but that's probably because DK hasn't shown interest in Nio beyond a pet, but that would be a tough line to walk either way. Where could this relationship go?

The shenanigans are decently readable, so I'll continue for a few more chapters...

That's exactly what I was hoping for too...

Mh, new chapter, but who cares about this father person? All men should just die anyway; good thing he's gone ahead...

Usually I don't mind "all men are trash" kind of comments, but this is in poor taste. Losing a parent is not a joke.

Finally an update!

Hopefully Maou is just going back to recharge her magical powers. Or to slay a few people and absorb their souls so she doesn't attack her pet.

Looks like she periodically has to destroy a bunch of stuff ...

Or at least that's what the chapter implies.
