Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is an 18+ BL anime adaptation, also known as Everything for Demon King Evelogia. In this nine-episode series, a young man is transported into a fictional video game world. He meets the game's final villain, an innocent-looking demon king, and they embark on an adventurous journey together. The anime has an uncensored version, packed with erotic scenes between the main characters.
As long as you don't take the story seriously, Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is pretty imaginative for smut. Even though it doesn't have a sophisticated plot or a sensible romance, this raunchy yaoi series is mindlessly entertaining. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but the anime is more enjoyable than I expected.

Yes, it's an explicit 18+ BL series.
Gozu is a cynical young man with a twisted view of the world. He roots against the heroes and celebrates the villains instead. Unfortunately for him, this troublemaker dies from a gunshot wound during a street brawl. When Gozu regains consciousness again, he's shocked to find himself reincarnated into a video game world. Inexplicably, Gozu is now one of the characters in an RPG game that he played as a kid.
In his bizarre second chance at life, Gozu assumes the identity of an assassin. According to the game's storyline, his character is hired by two villagers to murder their adopted son Evelogia. Along with the rest of the villagers, they fear Evegolia's unusual magical powers. That's why they paid an assassin to get rid of him.
Evelogia has an innocent-looking appearance with fair skin, red eyes, and long white hair. Despite his timid demeanour, he is actually a demon king in disguise. He serves as the final boss of the video game. The assassination is part of Evelogia's backstory in his journey to becoming a demon king.
Although Gozu is intended to kill Evelogia, he strays away from the original narrative. Instead, he rescues the demon king and protects him from another assassin. Evelogia is touched that someone finally showed kindness towards him. When Gozu suddenly falls ill, Evelogia uses his extraordinary magical ability to save the assassin's life.
After the failed assassination, neither Gozu nor Evelogia is welcomed in the village anymore. They leave together, embarking on an adventure to find a place that accepts the two of them. Along the way, Gozu and Evelogia form a tight bond, mixed with lots of passion and eroticism.

Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World Review
Anime Review Score: 6.6
As far as 18+ yaoi goes, Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is honestly not that bad. I mean, it's lacklustre in plenty of areas, but the BL genre has seen worse. At least this series offers a creative premise, unique setting, and attractive artwork. Getting reborn into a video game is a quirky idea, which leads to fun scenarios and intriguing possibilities. Compared to other anime erotica, Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World shows more substance beyond just the raunchy sex scenes.
However, I don't want to give the wrong impression as if this series has literary depth. Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is still very smutty, consisting of numerous sexual encounters in the uncensored version. The plot feels secondary to the explicit sex, because these characters screw each other constantly and excessively. When the anime focuses on the actual story, the scenes are silly yet entertaining. Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World doesn't have a sophisticated narrative, but it amuses me with the campy and outrageous situations.
Even though the characters have lots of sex, this series falters due to the unconvincing romance. Gozu becomes smitten with Evelogia right away, almost based on nothing except for lust. The anime is hasty to jump into the erotic content, so it rushes through their relationship and oversimplifies any attraction. Gozu and Eve don't come across as an authentic couple, more like the plot forced them to be together. Without a connection, their erotic scenes seem unnecessary and contrived, as if they're inserted to fill a quota.
The characterizations need improvement. Gozu isn't a complex protagonist, defined by his insatiable sex drive rather than any real identity. He's horny all the time, but that shouldn't be his only trait. While Evelogia shows more nuance, he's still painted in broad strokes and behaves like a walking anime trope. At least Eve's character has an elaborate backstory and a sweet personality. His likability compensates for Gozu's lack of individuality.
Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is drawn charmingly with bright and clean visuals. However, I'm not fond of Evelogia's character design. Besides his androgynous appearance, he looks way too young and his childlike demeanour makes the erotic scenes icky. It should be noted that we never find out how old Evelogia is, so maybe demon kings age differently in their species. As for Gozu, he's handsome and bulky, but his artwork looks anatomically funny in certain scenes. His enormous pecs are bigger than his head sometimes.
Despite the shallow characters and frivolous romance, Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is pretty enjoyable for smut. If you don't take the events seriously, this delightful anime might enchant you with its upbeat and lighthearted vibe. Plus, it has a happy ending that makes me eager to see how the story continues through a second season. This ridiculous series won't be for everyone and you might not respond well to its sleaziness. However, those who appreciate 18+ BL might be pleasantly surprised by Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World.
Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World has a quirky and unusual plot that will capture your interest. However, don't expect too much depth or sophistication from this smutty 18+ BL erotica.
Although the characters have a lot of sex in this series, I don't feel convinced by their romance. Their relationship is driven by lust instead of any meaningful connection.
Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World has decent visuals that look pleasant on the eyes. However, I'm not a fan of Evelogia's youthful and androgynous character design.
This BL anime has a happy ending that gets me excited about the prospect of Season 2. It's an optimistic ending that makes me want to explore the story's potential more.
This series maintains an energetic atmosphere with fun scenarios and upbeat humour. However, the anime reminds me of a porn paraody and can't shake off its sleaziness.
Reincarnated Into Demon King Evelogia's World is a decent 18+ BL anime with an entertaining plot. However, I wish the superficial characters and shallow romance showed more substance.
