Synopsis of Mairimashita! Iruma-kun

The story follows Iruma Suzuki, a 14-year-old boy who is sold to a demon by his parents. The demon, known as Sullivan, takes Iruma to the Demon World and adopts him as her grandson. He lists Iruma at the Babyls School of Demons where he is the principal.

At his new school, Iruma quickly befriends the demons Alice Asmodeus and Clara Valac. However, Sullivan mentions that he must never reveal that he is a human, since if he does, he will be devoured by anyone who finds out. Iruma then swears to keep the secret, although he cannot help but highlight more and more during his stay.
