    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 ...

    Simply amazing. Yet...
    This is beyond amazing.

    At first,it seems like a comedy/fan service anime,however it turns into much more. Heart touching,not just love. Every round is perfect,but it was rushed. This deserves to be around 20-30 episodes. Every second i spent was perfect,i recommend this to everyone.... as the best short-yet touchy story. The only animes which ever touched my heart were: Angle beats. ...

    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 ...

    War! Huh! Good God, y'all! What is it good for?! Apparently, profiting.
    Remember your first impression of Holo (from Spice and Wolf)? Y'know, when she was freaking naked? You wouldn't have thought it was actually a series about economics, would you? The same idea is at work here, with Maoyuu Maou Yuusha. Don't be distracted by the ample bosom, this isn't about boobs.

    Starting off as a web-story-turned-Light-Novel, ...

    Ehh.. Could be better :/
    Ep 8/12. The first episode had me absolutely hooked, but later episodes gave me a huge feeling of insufficient development between characters (or content in general,) while at the same time, making it seem like everything is happening too fast with all its time skips. It's slightly upsetting since I had anticipated the series to be solid romance, but, at least during the few times there are ...

    Never expect the unexpected
    I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy this, people said that it has the same cast as Spice and Wolf which I didn't watch but heard was very good. I have to say that everything about Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is amazing from the characters, music, animations and especially the story.

    What is evil really? interesting question to ask yourself when you're watching this. A demon king that wants to end ...

    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 ...

    Excellent Fantasy Universe, but still tied into a harem anime format
    The struggle between demon lord and hero is the struggle between good and evil. Each must strive to lead his particular faction to victory... In truth, it could never be that simple and if it was, it would be boring.
    <The following only spoils Ep. 1.>
