But it is foretold that one would arise who could restore harmony between gods and demons. Enter Raenef... heir to a set of demon royalty, he is hardly courtly material. The demon king assigns Eclipse to be his tutor, to mold Raenef into proper demonic shape. The two begin a journey of discovery and are soon joined by a human knight and a god-blessed priest.

Was good at first but...
By the chapter where leeche came in i was done. I wanted the plot to focus on the demon lord and his servant (bad memory) but then they started collecting all their enemies and forming a posse or something. it makes the whole demon thing not believable. Btw i hate leeche. Just putting that out there.
Great humor but might be childish for someone
Demon diary was the first Manhwa I read, and I really enjoyed it because the main character is really cute and unique I love the humor, it's really funny but I think it might be too childish for someone. The plot itself is good ;D
I found it lacking... It had a whole world of demons .-. but it went relatively unexplored. I liked the art though, and the chibis are adorable. I wish that the story had more time to develop... especially the part where the 2nd personality of Raenef comes into the picture.
I thought it was okay. It was moderately entertaining and the art was okay. I thought that the characters were interesting. I'm not really a fan of shounen-ai, but this series can go either way. You can look at their relationship as love or friendship. I liked the fact that the series was fantasy most of all. ^_^

a nice story...........
I enjoyed this series quite a bit. It had humor and fantasy, which I like. Raenef is so inept at first that you feel really bad for him. Eclipse is a great character - this tough guy demon who ends up caring about his master and not just himself. Erutis and Chris are like the comedic sidekicks. The plot is a simple one, but it works well. There was a writer change after the first volume, and you can tell. There is a little bit of a gap before the story jumps back into full swing. The second writer is better than the first however, so it was good that the series was finished by this one. Some may find the split personally of Raenef confusing, but one just needs to pay attention to the story a little closer. The art is nice in this one, even though I'm not a fan of the overuse of chibis. That is my one complaint on this one - too much chibi stuff. It detracts from the rest of the art. I have seem this manga listed as yaoi on occasion - not sure where someone got that. First of all, it's rated T. There is loyalty between Raenef and Eclipse, but loyalty cannot be mistaken for yaoi in this one at all. I recommend this one to anyone liking fantasy, and demon stories.
boyxboy or not, just read it
Dont need to dwell on this being yaoi/shounen-ai or not. Its in the eyes of the beholder, if you dont like boyxboy then read it with the mind that the 2 main chars are just loyal and caring. if you are a boyxboy lover like myself then look at the story in that way. No probs!
An interesting manga in my view. Too bad the ending was rushed.
All in all a 7 for me, worth a read!
it was amazing.. it's such a shame that the story writers got switch in the earlier volumes, since i could sense that there were some deeper aspects that were yet to be explored..
but still, great.
Not my cup of tea....
Not that I'm a fan of shonen ai in the first place, but having only read 3 of this genre so far, I believe this was the "worst" in my opinion.... I couldn't get much past the first volume though, so maybe it picks up later....
Absolutely hilarious, however, this is another reason why humor and real plot don't always mix too well. Once the comic started getting serious, well... the so-called "story" went to hell.
I absolutely adored the character Eclipse - tall bishie with dark hair, smart and caring with a bit of snark. Just how I like them. And Raenef, particularly with his innocence and vacant expressions on his chibi form, is so cute. The rest of the cast is quite loveable too, and the relationship between Eclipse and Raenef is sweet. Perhaps because Raenef is so girly, you hardly sense the shounen-ai hints.
The plot is nothing to write home about, and it suffered from the change of author. You can tell the story was changed when it swapped hands, and as a result there was a feeling that the plot didn't flow as smoothly as it should. The twin-Raenef problem near the end was rather unbelieveable too - it's as if the author decided that the child-like version of Raenef needed a bit of smartening up; magical style.
That aside, it's still a cute and entertaining story, and it's worth it just for the characters alone. Read it if you're a little down and need something that would leave you warm and satisfied.
