Maru-MA also known as The MA Series (㋮シリーズ) is a light novel series written by Takabayashi Tomo and illustrated by Matsumoto Temari. The common name or community name of the series in English and Spanish is Kyou Kara Maou. It's published by Kadokawa Shoten since 2000. There are currently 22 novels released. Between 2004-2009 was the series adapted into anime. The 117 episodes aired as Kyō kara Maō! (jp. 今日からマ王!) in Japan on NHK BS-2. There were two of three seasons released in English under the names Kyou Kara Maoh! and God(?), Save Our King!

Story Synopsis

Yuri Shibuya was living a pretty normal life. That changed the day he was dunked into a toilet after an attempt to save a classmate from a gang of bullies. Instead of just getting a good soaking, he's pulled in. The next thing he knows, he's in a world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe. If that's not odd enough, he's told that he is to be the next Maou (Demon King), just because he has black hair and black eyes. The Maou is the King of the Mazoku (Demon tribe), who are coexisting not-so-peacefully with the humans in this world. Much to his subjects' dismay, he's totally different from the rulers they're accustomed to. He's kind, considerate, a believer in justice, and not willing to use violence to solve conflicts. Not exactly someone they want running a country on the very brink of war. Now, Yuri has to deal with trying to become a good Maou, while at the same time attempting to adapt to this land's customs and culture, all in a world where the tension between the humans and Mazoku is reaching its peak.

Ba-bump ☆ A Late Night Service with Lots of Men

Official titles: Service at midnight of female off-limits, Hello Poison-lady from the country of the world.

The original title makes no sense in Japanese. Literally translated into English it would be: "Anissina From the Country of the World". The reason why it makes no sense (not even in Japanese) is because Takabayashi is playing with the title and making it sound like "Alice in Wonderland".
