First Impressions:

I found it really hard to get into I know it's first episode, but it just didn't click with me. I'm not sure if I'll be watching this I'll give it till episode 3 and if I feel the same then I'll be dropping this. I see a few people bring up Karneval though it had a weak plot, but the characters were
awesome I thought. I didn't get the same vibe out of the characters for this.

"Our current emperor is in a deep sleep"

one minute latter....

"i can see why the emperor likes you"

XD HoW! dose he talk in his sleep.


i'm not very keen on are main character.

"why is there a costume party under my basement"
yes because that is rational conclusion.
there is being a

realist: a person who tends to view or represent things as they really are.

and there is just being arrogant: Having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one's own importance or abilities.

Well, I read the manga so I was really looking forward to this but... I was kinda disappointed in the animation. It seems really bland to me.. not at all like the manga. I'm still gonna watch cause I wanna see how true to the story they keep things. The story is really interesting (to me) especially what's happening right now. Also, this isn't BL, just incase that was what was turning anyone off from checking this out.

I Think it has potential. Dontalion is strong so I can imagine some pretty good fight scenes in the future. The plot seems pretty solid to. Not to sure what to think about William. I think it would better if he gives into to this whole picking the temporary demon lord rather than have him go through it half-heartedly. And since he has the blood of solomon, maybe he has some hidden demon powers? who knowns. Ive been waiting for a new demon type anime and between this one and Blood Lad, I hope i'm not dissappointed.

First episode impression:

Loved it! This could become one of the best Summer 2013 anime for me, if it keeps the same quality as the first episode.
I find it fascinating, this whole hell hierarchical system, human/demon contracts thing. I'm curious to know about it further.

And I wonder if this was a reference to the movie Inception, when that William Twining guy said, "This feels like a dream within a dream" lol...


And I don't care if this anime is "for girls". Millions of guys can enjoy Sailor Moon and My Little Pony... if this anime's for girls, then so be it.

Let the yaoi begin! lol Not a single girl in sight... and I am suspicious of the female-looking characters in the END. It's not bad, but it's not good either... ridiculous and fair at best.

Yaoi = malexmale romance

there was nothing yaoi about this anime.

and if you look at the ending song, there are female characters. One of them have boobs.

You obviously don't know undertones when you see them. There was a scene in the OP where Dantelion is hugging William with a "I love you" expression on his face. And just because there character in the END (which I mentioned already) has what appears to be boobs, doesnt mean they are female.

I guarantee you that there is a yaoi shipping already floating around on the internet about this series.

I know about the undertones.

That wasn't Dantalion, that was his Butler hugging him. It wasn't an "I love you" expression either, it was more like a "sympathy" look, it was a scene on a graveyard, so I'm assuming they were attending someone's grave.

The undertones were more like, "Join me and become mine" when Solomon said this to Dantalion during a contract. And many scenes later when William clung to Dantalion during the fights.

But my point is, none of these things actually make the anime itself "yaoi". Just because the male characters seem to be affectionate don't mean that they're in a romantic relationship--which is what yaoi actually entails.


It's like if you see a normal shoujo/shonen anime, and you see the girls hugging and holding hands (as friends), or fondling each other breasts in a spa scene, you wouldn't call those anime "yuri"...

So I'm confused why people are so quick to call something yaoi just because the male characters are more affectionate.

This title is based on a Shojo/Josei manga by MadokaTakadono from 2009 and still ongoing ,

released via Comic Zero Sum magazine which has other titles like 07 Ghost and Karneval , Amatsuki ,Saiyuki which has predominantly male characters.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/07-ghost
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9XAon_nJbo

So this title is not boy love but its like BL titles because its catered towards female audience /buyers and some thus the Shojo/Josei category .

Shojo/Josei pretty much means women of certain age group

I still don't understand. This is like saying shonen anime is yuri because it's catered for men, or ecchi anime is hentai anime.

The categories exist for a reason, and people are misusing the terms.

well thats how they categorize things in Japan...and people dont get it..

So the point is Makai Oji is NOT ... BL or yaoi . .

I remember when people were labeling 07 Ghost the same way..its actually pretty good and the manga is not bad either

I loved 07Ghost.

This is why I don't like it when people label things as "yaoi/BL" when it's not. It produces a negative effect on the anime and turn people away.


Junjou romantica, Sekai-ichi hatsukoi, No.06 = those titles are Yaoi/BL


Makai Oji, Karneval etc = NOT yaoi or BL.
