Jahy-sama wa Kujikenai! (The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated!) is a Japanese comedy manga series by Wakame Konbu.

An anime TV series adaptation by Silver Link premiered in August 2021.

After a magical girl destroys the Dark Realm, Jahy, the second-in-command in the Dark Realm, finds herself in the human world, in the body of a little girl.

This anime is one of the most amusing reverse isekai I have seen. It has hilarious character interactions and the tragicomic daily life of Jahy-sama is simple to understand and also funny.

It’s definitely one of the shows you should consider watching after a stressful day because it’s an instant mood booster!
