I've seen several positive reviews for The Selfish Demon King, which just goes to show you how subjective reviews can be. Personally, I thought this book was pretty bad. The best thing I can say about it is that it was a quick, light read. Also, I have (unfortunately) read worse.

It's hard to know where to begin, but I think I'll start with the worst stuff (Duga is a rape-y alphole – consider yourself warned) and work from there. It'll be like ripping off a band-aid – do it nice and quick and get
Shizuku is a high school student in Japan who comes home one day to find a man with horns talking to his father and brothers. The next thing he knows he's whisked to another dimension. The Demon King is determined to make him his mate. It seems that Shizuku is an incubus whose father took him to the human world to hide him as a baby. All Shizuku wants is to go back to Japan and be a normal kid, even though he likes the sex and the Demon King isn't ALL bad. I quite enjoyed this fast read. It's on ...more
I mean, the smut was okay but the characters were pretty unbelievable. I also find it disturbingly unhealthy that the main character fell in love with the Demon King simply because he was "nice" to him, completely disregarding the fact the he raped him, threatened on multiple occasions to kill his family, and held him hostage for months with little to no outside contact.

Yeah sounds like love to me!

Though I mean, it's yaoi, so this isn't that unusual...overall not terrible. A quick read.

The Selfish Demon King is an erotic anime tale about a lonesome Demon who searches for his mate during his mating season. His mate has to be an attractive incubus, whom he finds in the human world and forces back into his world. This story starts off as a struggle with the unknown, however it gravitates into action. This is not the full book however, there are several volumes i assume. This is a good tongue wetter.
While others think this is horrible, i love this book. Its on my home screen. I say this alot but its true. I love how Duga was kinda a tyrant but he was an angel with shizuku. He never treated him horribly or unresonalbly. He was so sweet, lavishing him with gifts. 'dreamy sigh' I want a sweet king, or prince, or cowboy, i don't care which, who'll sweep me off my feet. But then again who doesn't?
This is yaoi but is not a graphic novel. There were a few pages of illustrations intermittently spaced within the text, but for the most part, it was a short story. The story was interesting and I liked the illustrations. Because of the length, the characters were not as fully as developed as they could have been, but I thought the story line was good.

It was okay. I didn't like Doga at all though. Calling him the "selfish" demon king is an understatement, in my opinion. He's much too possessive. If he'd acted differently, maybe I would have given this another star, but as it is there's only so much of a character like him I can take.
