An Archdemon’s Dilemma PV and key visuals out – MAN, this one hits all the cute feels

An Archdemon’s Dilemma — How to Love Your Elf Bride features an evil sorcerer and an elf bride who thinks he’s going to kill her

I don’t know about you, but I am a sucker for romantic comedy anime where the male lead is a tsundere and the female lead is cute and shy.

Come on, it’s a classic set up for some of the sweetest and funniest misunderstandings, as well as a lot of those moments where you just want to go “Awwwww”.

Such, it appears, is the case for the upcoming anime An Archdemon’s Dilemma — How to Love Your Elf Bride.

A new anime series from Brains Base that just got two new key visuals, a teaser PV, the anime’s cast and staff named, and a premiere date earlier today.

And one that, from what has been released so far, looks like it has the potential to be cuter than cute.

Despite its characters being an evil sorcerer that everyone is terrified of, and the elf he just bought as a slave who thinks he is planning to kill her.

An Archdemon’s Dilemma trailer

The just-released An Archdemon’s Dilemma trailer kicks off with elf bride Nephy asking her new master, evil sorcerer Zagan, how he is planning on killing her.

Zagan, of course, is immediately freaked out as he had no intention of murdering the elf, as when he saw her at the slave auction earlier that day, it was love at first sight.

Of course, Nephy doesn’t know that.

We then learn Zagan is feared by the people in his community, so it would only be normal if Nephy felt the same fear. But does she?

After all, when Zagan asks her to sit down, climbing onto his lap seems easy for her in the first of the two new An Archdemon’s Dilemma key visuals (see below), until the second one shows us how they both really feel.

Cool Zagan and uncomfortable Nephy but wait a minute… (see below)
Yep, that’s more like it
