    Awesome anime so far!
    I won't even lie, this won't be much of a review. I'm suffering from anime withdrawal after Kuroko's basketball and all of them good anime have ended. Then one day as I browsed crunchyroll in my zombie-like state I stumbled across Maoyu. I was like meh, and clicked the first episode prepared to come across utter trash, but woah was I wrong. The first episode blew me away. Awesome art, awesome ...

    Is this love at first watch
    After only 1 episode i felt like this show was good because it had romance, comedy, and adventure. Then i just finished watching episode 2 about twenty minutes ago and wow this show is good. When i watch this show i feel like i am watching Spice and Wolf, but i know it isn't spice and wolf. This show is promising and i know it will be a fun ride watching. I might have to check out the manga now.

    Very interesting story!
    The story is set in a world embroiled by war between Humans and Demons. The Humans' greatest hero invades the Demon King's castle determined to vanquish her. However, instead of fighting back, the King proposes an alliance with the Hero. She explains how a sudden end to the war can bring further chaos to the world as the Humans once united to stand against their common enemies would eventually ...

  • will there be a 2nd season?
    Good anime. Some parts diverged away from the main conflict, the human-demon war and the politics behind it.This made a few episodes a bit boring and difficult to watch. What makes matters worse, the last episode does not conclude the story and points toward a cliff hanger. You may need to get your hands on the light novels to catch up/finish the story.

  • Great!! It Didn't End Right, Though.
    Everyone around here describes Maoyu as an Economics class, and there's some politics thrown in too. I really liked the characters, as well as seeing their interactions and the plans that they put into action throughout the story. I like the art style, as well.

    My only real complaint is the last episode - it sets up for the story's ending, but the anime doesn't actually get there. ...

  • What a Great and enticing story!
    This anime really made me think about many aspects of life most take for granted and the internal working of many official positions. An anime I feel it was great and always had me wanting more but, I with there was more action and the story was completed not just ended. Sadly due to the end of the light novels there will be no season 2. But I really hope i'm wrong!!!! You won't regret this anime ...

  • This show is something special
    In my mind this show stands apart. I'm not saying everyone will love it, only that it's something different in much the same way that Spice and Wolf is something different. This show takes a hero vs demon king premise and takes it in a completely new and unique direction. I love it, and I'm pretty confident that there will be a second season. The Manga is really good, and this show leaves off ...

  • Good but needed more
    The anime was really nice and unique, I loved the whole aspect of economics and trying to balance out evil and good for everyone to live peacefully. However, I really disliked the ending as it could've been so much better, it needs season 2! Don't let that turn your eye away from the great animation, aspect and plot of the anime. The script is quite funny and has a lot of depth to it. I really ...

  • Unique anime about making money, wizards, and stuff..
    Maoyu, is different. I myself have never watched an anime series where it begins in such a typical way spiral out to left field so quickly and sincerely. This show really does take you for a ride, in the sense that you're going to be educated along the way in terms of how one can spin the ravages of war into a profit.

    The story starts off very similarly to any fantasy show, giant demon horde ...

  • Fantastic premise, short lived
    I WANT MOAR... starting to think I'm going to have to do it myself. This show delves deep into economics and history, peppering in a lot of facts along the way. It seems to represent the struggles between England and continental Europe during their split from Catholicism. Great show, esp for people who find historical fantasy animes to be enjoyable.
