The Best Demon Anime

List RulesUpvote the demon anime with the most entertaining entities.

Demons get a bit of an unfair rep, but some anime go out of their ways to introduce viewers to different kinds of demons. From a devilishly handsome butler who wants to eat your soul to the demon working at McDonald's, these fiends possess more roles than people, and show off another side of the demonic. Now when you think of demons, you'll be less inclined to this of goat heads and pentagrams and more about how demons, like ogres, have layers.

Let the world, and the underworld, know which demon anime you think is the greatest by voting it up.
