Episode 11

I can't believe Mage didn't have a bigger role in this show, her split personality/forms are awesome

1 more episode to go

Its a good anime. But I cant help but feel kinda disappointed. I think so much more could of be done.


I do think that with it being set for only 12 episodes, it would feel rushed and underdeveloped in some areas in the show


I cant help but think it would slightly outstay its welcome at 24 though?


that's the problem

12 episodes feels too short, characters don't seem as fleshed out, plot is compressed to fit the 12 episode length

24 episodes would feel like its artificially stretching the show and might have border line filler episodes as a result

there is no winning here lol

this is what happens when anime has to fit its intended Japanese tv time slot every season

I guess a possible season 2 for next year would sort of solve this problem though
people would have a momentary break from the show in the time before it returns and it will help to expand and develop off of season 1
that's what I think at least

I don't reall think it needs a second season, just a few ova should do the trick, but those are out of favour since everyone wants to leave things open ended for the hope of a second season right now. Is a shame, imagine HxH 1999 with no ova!

I just got caught up....I am really likng this anime .

Although i also agree an OVA here and there would probably be suffecient but another season would be nice too...since the plot is getting complicated ...and not sure what closure would it be ...

I really appreciate how this show doesn't get bogged down with pointless side-stories; those which do exist contribute directly to advancing the main tale. Still, I think that the intricacies of the story as a whole warranted more than just 12 episodes. I think this story could have easily sustained a second season had the makers proceeded more slowly and offered viewers a few more details of developing events. A little more back-story for the characters would have also been welcome.

Man, I'm having a hard time reading these threads and not wonder how many folks are expecting perfect animes out of every one they watch. Anyway, to end this I will say this: EPIC thunderbolt!

I personally don't see this ending conclusively in the next episode.


I'd gladly choose to be proven wrong though if they somehow do manage to end it well

Yeah, I was hoping to see more of Mage as well. And what's up with all these split personality characters? Only 1 show out of 4 that I watched this winter season doesn't seem to have 1.

Yes sir! I agree!

And lol, you're right, there wasn't even a period at the end of that run-on paragraph!

Also, I have a question for u guys. The full title (or the alternate title) of this anime seems to be まおゆう魔王勇者. I know the 魔王 means Devil, and the 勇者 means Hero, but what does the まおゆう (Maoyū) mean? Google translate didn't help, and another online translator (Babylon) interpreted it as meaning "will be free" but I doubt that's correct.

Isnt Maoyu a compound word of the names of the main characters? Yuusha (uu=u bar) and Mao?

Episode 12/Finale


Well, the series is over. For some reason though, I felt like something was missing. I guess being a manga reader, the humor of this series didn't go too well. At any rate, I thought the series was still decent.

The part that I thought could of been better would be if the Mage made more screen time in this series. Regarding the finale, I thought the episode was okay. The action was so-so although I didn't expect Maoyu to have good action anyways. However, some of the dialogues sure were amusing and the scenes between the two main characters - Demon Queen and Hero. Lol @ the end credits as well.

Not too shabby overall imo, 6/10.

I would love to see another season of this but lets see how sales and everything else goes, They sure did leave it open for more. I would hate to see this end now, but look back and see how many others have ended before their time. Fingers crossed for another season.

Episode 12

Hopefully we get another season because it looks like things were about to get even more interesting

Also Hero you lucky bastard, you got Female Knight and and Demon Queen rubbing all over you in the credits lol

And we definitely need more split persona Mage

Yes, strangely in the first episode, finding the mage was introduced as a major driver but then... the character hardly had any screen time or involvement.

I thought the first episode was great, the middle was a bit slow and muddy but the finale was pretty good.

The love triangle was fun anyways, lucky Yuusha between Tsurupeta Knight and Oppai Maou:

Sales were not great, volume one sold 2710 units, below break even unless possible novel/manga sales are factored in but you never know. Predicting second seasons is far from an exact science...
