A Match Made in Hell - When the seal for Nora's form is released he becomes Cerberus, the vicious dog of disaster. But Nora can only use magic when Kazuma grants him permission...and Kazuma doesn't grant permission easily. The Dark Liege wants the two to team up and crack down on renegade demon factions in the human world, but how can they do that if they can't even get along?
Nora, an unruly demon, has defied his Dark Liege one too many times. For the sake of his "education," Nora is sent to live among mortals and enters a bond of servitude with cool-as-ice star student Kazuma Makkari. Kazuma is about to learn the ways of the underworld...and Nora will learn more from the "real world" than he ever thought possible

Nora is a demon who has an attitude problem. Unruly, loud and defiant, he crosses his Dark Liege one time too many, leading him to be sent to Human School. Forced into a body of servitude, Nora becomes the familiar to aloof star student Kazuma Makkari. Mayhem swiftly ensues after Nora discovers he can only use magic with permission from Kazuma, and the two butt heads both literally and figuratively. Packed with action at every turn, the two are forced to work together, although not necessarily get along, as the Dark Liege wants them to fight renegade demons. The story is less compelling than other stories of a similar vein and relies too heavily on violence and slapstick humor. There is a general lack of character development, and both Nora and Kazuma are highly predictable. Kakei's art is comical; the characters often wear exaggerated expressions and frequently appear angry or distressed. Nora isn't bad, but falls short in many ways. (Oct.)
