>very early on establish and show through examples that humans are weaker than demons except for cases when they have special powers

I know this series gets a lot hate for its way if handling romance and the main villain but was anyone else really irritated by the smaller stuff like this?

Strong demons are more powerful than humans could hope to become, but that doesn't mean that all humans must be less powerful than the weakest demon.
First ones that come to mind is the band of seven, granted they had jewel shards though it was implied they were still ridiculously powerful during life.

Not necessarily stronger than real demons though.
