    Blurring the line between anime and historical drama
    Anyone who has ever played a hero adventure game comes into this with some expectation that they know what they will find. But those things that we expect to find familiar and comforting are out on the peripheries. If you're old enough to be watching this, then you've probably learned the basics about feudal Europe, and so instead of settling into your vast knowledge of anime dynamics and game ...

    Great for the older crowd of anime lovers
    This show was everything spice and wolf was trying to be. Had to watch it twice it was so good. If you like a magical view of history with a great love story this is the show to watch. Everything about this show was great.

    One of the better storys I've seen in a while.
    Taking the classic story of Hero vs Demon King and flipping it on its head, in a good-great way. The characters are great from the OP Hero to the cute little maid. Story was wonderful, I just wish there was more. And do not forget the humor lots of humor to make you smile. ^^

    Spice and Wolf with a dash of fairy tale romance
    i love an anime that combines math and economic with action and romance. this has more to do with making a better world then romance or action but there a heavy amount of all the themes. once you start watching it you do say why is this only 12 episodes please let there be a 2 season i hope fingers crossed. it about a demon king and her hero yes the demon king the girl who want to end the war ...

    Well worth the watch
    So I am currently watching the series, and in the beginning I must admit that I was nervous it was going to turn into goofy parody (which is sometimes fun, but not what I was expecting), and while there are still elements of humor, the story line itself is more political/economical - with a moderate splash of romance.

    This show is different than most animes right from the start because the ...

    Why must there be a love triangle?
    The first thing I thought when watching this series, was the atmosphere reminded me of Spice and wolf. Though that may be true it has many differences and it's own merits. The only thing I don't like about this series is the love triangle. I was really attracted by the fact that the hero and demon king got married off the bat without knowing much about each other. I expected them to face hardships ...

    It gets better and better
    To me, this started ok and kinda interesting. It did hook me but It wasn't fireworks from the beginning. There were some moments when it got heartfelt and insightful and others when things felt rushed. I'm up to episode 9 now, and I can say, these last few episodes have been just AMAZING and PERFECT. All in all, it starts tying up real nice, and also opens the doors for so much more, so many new ...

    Like Spice and Wolf BUT
    You know, there's like 15 reviews here that link this to Spice and Wolf, which is accurate. However there is one difference, the Economic Theory in this show though basic is really sound and goes deeper than Spice and Wolf.

    This show does a really sneaky good job of teaching the greys in economics and politics. A war where nobody is exactly wrong is refreshing in Anime. If I had a kid I would ...

    A defininate must watch!
    This is a great anime, I didn't know what to expect when I dropped it in my que, but I'm so glad I did. This anime has a similar feel to Spice & Wolf. Give it a shot, guarantee you'll absolutely love it!

    Who says you don't learn anything from watching anime?
    Whoever says "Anime is unethical and anti-educational" can suck it.

    Watch this and amaze your college economics and philosophy professors. Plus, its funny enough and beautiful enough to keep you watching and the plot is so good that you'll wonder why everyone else ISNT watching this.
