Manga / Chibi☆Devi!

Go To

Chibi☆Devi! is a Shōjo manga by Hiromu Shinozuka. The story centers around Honoka Sawada, a teenage girl with a miserable life. She lost her parents at a young age, her aunt is never home, and the other girls at school bully her. She can't even visit her only friend Kyou because his friend Shin scares her. But her life changes when two demons decide to send their baby to her home. Now she must take care of the demon baby with the help of Shin and the staff of a bizarre daycare center.

The manga began serialization in 2008 in Ciao, and completed its 6-year run with 11 volumes. A side story, Chibi☆Devi! Minna ga Eran da! Chou Ninki Best Collection, was compiled in 2014. A 5-minute anime series produced by Synergy SP ran from 2011 to 2014, and ended with 75 episodes.

Chibi☆Devi! provides examples of:

  • Adaptation Distillation: The anime is rather short, being 5 minutes. The manga has a full-blown story while being greatly reduced with its 5 minute run in the anime.
  • Afraid of Needles: Shin of all people. Then Mao and Karin rebelled after seeing Rai get his shot. And it takes Shin to convince the babies to get theirs despite being scared shitless.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Mao-chan can breath fire when he's wearing his dinosaur costume. The other babies have their own powers with their costumes as well.
  • The Gadfly: Rai-chan of all kids is this. It can actually be put to his advantage as he manages to have the sadistic storyteller to jump on his leg just so the kids can hear the rest of the story.
  • Hot-Blooded: Karin is the quickest of the babies to lose her temper, which doesn't take much. Though in a twist of irony, her magic is ice based, while the much more even tempered Mao gets fire.
  • Iron Butt Monkey: The principal is constantly set on fire, electrocuted, and frozen, but never takes long to recover.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Mao-chan accidentally reveals that Honoka likes Shin. But since he's a small child, he doesn't know better since he's innocent.
  • No Social Skills: Well, it's not her fault by any means. Honoka just really isn't brave enough to be friends with other people due to her Shrinking Violet nature, even with adult women. She does gain a considerable amount of friends and help.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: All 3 babies have their particular favorite. Mao-Chan can't get enough of hotcakes, Karin is a lover of all things meat and Rai-Chan guzzles melon soda by the truckload.
