    Best twelve episodes of my life
    This is one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's like a unicorn gave birth to an anime ment to be perfection. I think this show should be a 5 star because of it's all around amazing story ,characters , and art.
    This is also my first time writing a review and I'm glad its for a good one.

    Excellent Anime! wish there were another season but...
    Like others have said, this anime takes on an interesting spin battling war with economic prowess. Time is scaled out fairly heavy so an episode might cover a week or 3 months at a time.
    The main characters, the mao (Demon King) and yusha (Hero) [mao|yu] spin a web of small developments that encourage others to make their own. It ties these together in a great way and was wonderfully interesting ...

  • A Fantastic and Unorthodox Fantasy Tale
    It's not everyday you come across an anime dealing with agricultural technological innovation, medieval socioeconomics & political theory, and religious discord & schisms...with a dash of comedy, action, and romance. Has a very strong "stage play" feel, with all of the characters going by title rather than name, which is a nice touch.

    Think Spice and Wolf with a broader focus beyond trading ...

  • A very good anime with many different aspects.
    I thought, that this anime show was very good. It has many different elements in the plot with some romance, comedy, action, fantasy and some intriguing plot twists along the way. The anime takes a different approach to the fantasy genre then many other animations, because it also focuses on the people's role in a war and so on.

    A very slow moving intricate story
    An important point: I have only watched the first three episodes so far. My opinion may change if or when I come back to see the others. So this is an incomplete review.

    The artwork, music and voice acting are all of a very high standard.

    The story, as much of it as I have seen, seems pretty dull. There are some contradictions in the plot. On the one hand it seems to be attempting to mimic ...

    LOVED IT. From the opening song to the last episode..this anime drew tears and laughs. Rapidly became one of my favorites. The Demon King's roll in this piece is pretty flawless. and the hero.. oh the hero. Such a sweet soul. Serfs..demons..humans..magical folk. Maoyu<3

  • Very well done. It was a very fun show.
    I really enjoyed this show it was exciting, comical, and even intriguing with its economic and political views. I rather enjoyed that instead of a story of the hero defeating the demo king/lord they team up in a way to bring peace to human and demons. But they dont just say yea everyone is fine and there wars over.... No they go into the economic problems of there time and even what would happen ...

    Very well developed.
    Maoyu really feeds that (I think im smart) side of my brain. Both entertaining and educational. I like the way they tied in a bit of romance and comedy. The only reason I give this anime 4 stars as opposed to 5 is because imo the story is ended abruptly. If the anime was a good 10-12 episodes longer id be satisfied. But for now I feel like someone gave me candy, let me like it then smacked it to ...

    Maoyu is one of the best anime to watch.
    Maoyu is a great anime to watch. People who like Spice and Wolf should watch Maoyu. Maoyu can teach you some life lessons. I recommend people to watch Maoyu. I think Maoyu should have a second season. Maoyu can also teach you about some economy lessons. I hope there will be a second season for Maoyu in the future.

    excellent, and I do mean excellent!
    As others have stated, if you enjoyed Spice and Wolf you will enjoy this. That was all I needed to hear and the marathon began!

    The comparison to Spice and Wolf is inevitable, so I will get that out of the way. This does have several similar themes to Spice and Wolf, the character of the show is very similar, as is the setting and the types of characters present. Maoyu is definitely more ...
