|The Devil is a Part-Timer Abridged|
Alifluro + justkyledavid
09/09/13 - Ongoing
12 + 3 OVA Specials
The Devil is a Part-Timer Abridged is created by Alifluro and justkyledavid, with episode 1 being launched on September 9, 2013. Both Alifluro and justkyledavid have their own individual YouTube channels, but decided to create a joint channel for this series, thus OverlordABRIDGED was created (later renamed to Junk House Studios). The series is written and edited by both Alifluro and justkyledavid. The abridged series characters and plot points are kept relatively close to the original
Production[edit | edit source]
Both the creators were looking to start a new abridged series - Alifluro having already created one and justkyledavid looking to start his first - and so they put their heads together and decided to start one for a relatively new anime series (at the time) that they both loved: The Devil is a Part-Timer (or Hataraku Maou-Sama).
They soon decided that they would also voice in the series as well, to reduce the number of extra cast members they had to bring in, and so it was decided that Alifluro would voice Emi Yusa, and justkyledavid would voice Lucifer. On June 13, 2013, the two posted an open audition video for all the remaining characters on their channel OverlordABRIDGED, as well as posting the audition call on the Voice Acting Alliance website. The interest they received was overwhelming, and the cast video was released on July 7, 2013.
The first episode was released on September 9, 2013.
On December 17, 2014, all seven episodes of the series were removed from the OverlordABRIDGED YouTube channel, due to copyright claims. This removal delayed the group's Christmas special. All of the episodes were restored on January 9, 2015, and the delayed Christmas special was released on January 14.
Episode 9, like episode 5, was released via a Livestream Premiere, and included most of the cast members from episode 9.
Episode 11 was released on May 24, 2016. Episode 11 serves as part one to the finale.
Episode 12 was released on June 29, 2017 and serves as the final episode of the series.
An 'Episode 13' April fools video was released in 2018.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The creators of the abridged series (Alifluro and justkyledavid) are both Australian, and live together.
- The character who reads the disclaimer for each episode also appears on the video's thumbnail, as well as the ending credits 'subscribe' message. Each 'subscribe' message at the end of the video is tailored to the characteristics of that character.
- The entire main cast read the disclaimer for the final episode.
- The opening song for the abridged series is "The Hell Song" by Sum 41. It was thought to be appropriate.
- Alciel's character development has been strongly influenced by the way he is portrayed by his voice actor: SynK.
- For multiple episodes LollipopProductions (Chiho) had to buy an attachment so she could record from her phone, as her computer had crashed.
- Lucifer's accent is inconsistent, often alternating between and combining Australian, American, and British accents.
- The cast and crew are made up of a mix of Australians, Americans, and Canadians.
