The Servant of Evil ~Opera Buffa!~
Conceptualization and Origin
- The title "Aku Musu" is a shortened version of Riliane's infamous title "The Daughter of Evil" (Aku no Musume); humorously, it references the truncated nature of the yonkama itself.
- The term Opera Buffa is Italian for "Comic Opera", a comedy genre of opera heard on the stage; it humorously references The Servant of Evil and its themes being given a comedic spin.
