    Ok basic parts.

    MC is one of the 4 heavenly kings of the demon king army. During an interview one of his friends labels him the weakest. Things sort of snowball from that and he gets kicked out of the army. facing the fact the violent, meat headed demons are going to target him in order to try and get his former seat he decided to go to the human kingdom to lay low for a bit since fighting would be annoying. He could have stuck it out in the demon kingdom but since his race is visually indistinguishable from a human he thinks it would be easier to pretend to be a normal weak human.

    First thing he does upon crossing over into the human territory is accidently save the young hero and Saintes of prophesy.


    The demon side:
    Things quickly start to go bad for the demons. 2 of the remaining heavenly kings are just violent idoits who looked down on MC not understanding how important/strong he was. The lady demon understood and was afraid of MC thus why she didn't stick up for him. On top of his instant death magic he can revive fallen from the dead pretty much limitlessly. He's also the tatical brain of the demon kings army. He's pretty much the sole reason all the separate races, and tribes can fight together as a united front. He did all the negotiating and planning to make the kingdom what it is today. Girl demon wanted him away because she understood the only reason he wasn't in charge was, he was to apathetic and he could obliterate everyone and rule if he ever actually cared. After all the demon race is rulled by might, the strongest is the ruler, the rest the ruled.

    If they hadn't kicked MC out the hero and saintes would be dead, they would have the unimmied revives and tatical knowalge of MC, and would be able to easily wipe out the humans. Now that they kicked him out the hero hast a teacher with ultimate knowlage of demon kind, battel tactics, and unlimmited revives.

    I'm going to try and power through this tonight. If anyone wants to know anything feel free to ask and I'll keep a look out and answer later.

    Easy way to put it.

    Demons: Strong/idoits
    Humans: weak/smart
    MC: death god/ smart (although 1,000 years behind in human common sense)

    Smart does not mean has "common sense", especially considering "common sense" is often heavily cultural.
    Heck I am not certain if it is true or not, but there is one quote attributed to Einstein I keep seeing online "Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen", it is often nothing more then short cuts in our reasoning to simplify decisions, which is why it can lead us into making mistakes.

    the novel really reads that it's make a better manga. He does start collecting a high powered harem as expected. It does give him a brief explanation/reason for him not to really touch them. Rather than just being the no guts JN hero trope he is half undead so he simply doesn't have much of a libido. He still has some but it's on the low side so he can recognize when someone is making an advance on him but have a cool enough head to turn them down.

    The main problem maker/villian seems to be the heavenly king that got him kicked out. Demon king is super pissed at him by him doing it behind their back.

    Arc 1 ends with him sending a 20,000 army to run over MC's (weak boarder town) and they get obliterated. Since MC gave the hero some advise she actually did pretty good at first. MC was ignorant off helping his former subornates who now were tasked with all his old work. Once it's over they inform him how jerk off is sending an army towards him.

    General of the army isn't totally brain dead, still a dumbass though. He knows MC has instant death magic but laughs at him when he arrives since as a low level he wouldn't have enough MP to kill them all. MC politely informs him that undead are lvl locked, and his instant death magic is a rachial trait of litchis. A.K.A. no magic needed. General and rest of army quickly converted to piles of meat.

    Demon king is super pissed. Jerk used instantaneous transmission to being the army to the battel he lost. Demons use a short cut method by using another's life force. In other words he didn't just loose 20,000 he lost 40,000 since he was in a hurry. He just thought it was no big deal since they all could just bring them all back to life. Demon king rightly pissed at the ignorant remark crushed him to death with gravitational magic. Advisor pointed out they still sort of needed him. Demon king pointed out they could just bring him back. ( after three days of his corps hanging on the castle walls :) )

    also, yes demon king is a 50yr old loli girl. What else would a demon king in this kind of novel be?

    How does Jerk think they'll be able to bring back the corps without MC? Using other Lich's?

    A rare few other can use that spell, and only as a spell not a skill so it's just much harder and slower. MC just has the only unlimited free pass. Everyone has gotten so used to it that they've taken the actual trouble it is to revive for everyone else for granted.

    MC is weak in demon terms. He may be a master of all forms of instant death and revival but that's all. His stats are locked to being incredibly low for a demon. He's physically strong by human standards but that's it. He can super easily be overpowered, or out speed. Simply put MC is a glass cannon build. He also incredibly weak to light and all forms of light magic.

    He's also admitted that If he ever managed to unlock his states he's lose his ability to do instant death magic. He doesn't parturally mind being locked into low stats due to the OP ness of death magic,
