Voice actress Ayaka Ohashi has posted a four-minute music video for her 11th single song “Be My Friend!!!” on her official YouTube channel. The catchy heavy tune will be featured as the OP theme for the spring 2022 TV anime The Greatest Demon Lord Is Reborn as a Typical Nobody, in which she is also cast as one of its main heroines, Sylphy Marheaven.


The CD single of the song is set to be released on April 27, 2022. The song itself has a heavy sound, and while she appears cool in the video’s singing scenes, in its drama scenes she plays a comical figure of a lonely girl who wants to make friends.

Key visual:





The most powerful Demon Lord in history, Varvatos, felt that he had accomplished everything he could as a king. Because he was so alone due to how powerful he was, he longed for a much simpler life. A few millennia later, he is reborn as the villager, Ard Meteor. But in the future where he was reborn, magical civilization had declined and magic itself had become weaker.

Ard enrolls into the Academy of Magic with his childhood friend Ireena and no matter how much he tries not to stand out, he can’t hide the fact that he is not ordinary.

He is constantly surrounded by people awestruck by him, and many try to approach him. Meanwhile, the demons of the world who once struck fear into the hearts of the people have also gone into hiding…

Will the former Demon Lord be able to achieve the peaceful and mundane life he’s always dreamed of? A heroic academy-life fantasy filled with chaos is about to begin!
