The Demon Girl Next Door is an extremely funny comedy that tells the story of Yuko Yoshida, an ordinary 15-year-old girl, who wakes up one morning to discover she has grown horns and a devil tail overnight.
Yuko’s mother then breaks the news to her. She is a demon who has finally grown into her power and, when it comes to the Battle of Light over Dark, she and her family are on the wrong side. Because of this, they have been cursed and are now doomed to live on only $400 a month. That is why, no matter how hard her mother tries, the family is always poor.
Soon Yuko finds out she must vanquish a local Magical Girl and, if she does, she will break the curse that was placed on her family and restore them to their former glory. When she does, they will have money and will be able to live a life with a few luxuries.
The problem is, when she discovers who the Magical Girl is and finds out she goes to her school, it becomes difficult for Yuko to even consider hurting her. Especially as Momo, the Magical Girl, keeps saving Yuko from dangerous situations she gets herself in.
The Demon Girl Next Door was directed by Hiroaki Sakurai (Maid Sama!) and stars Konomi Kohara as Yuko, Akari Kito as Momo and Minami Takahashi as Yuko’s ancestor Lilith.
