What is the plot of Level 1 Demon Lord and One Room Hero?

The story centers on the Demon Lord and his archenemies – the hero. Ten years ago, the hero Max defeated the Demon Lord in an epic battle with the help of his allies: a female mage, a knight, and a healer/priest. In order to regain his power, the Demon Lord decided to fall into an enchanted sleep. As soon as he awakens he discovers that his body has transformed into a “chibi” version of its former fearsome self.

Despite this setback, the Demon Lord is dying of curiosity to see what his old archenemy is up to now that he has defeated the Demon Lord. The Demon Lord believes the hero must be living in the lap of luxury surrounded by his adoring fans. However, when the Demon Lord tracks Max down it is to discover that the mighty hero has become a “NEET” and is living in a dirty, one-room apartment.

The Demon Lord decides to move in with Max, who doesn’t recognize him in his new chibi appearance, in order to help the hero become the formidable foe he used to be so that he can once again battle against him, defeat him, and regain his lost honor. But as the Demon Lord gets to know the hero Max as a “friend” his initial plans start to go awry.

One question remains – is the Demon Lord a male or female?
