    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.>

    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.

    RPG/ Love story? Should I watch? YES!!!!
    I absolutely fell in love with this anime. It is as simple as that. It has some of my favorite genres and has adapted the best qualities from some of my favorite anime.

    From Spice and wolf (if you haven't seen this you need too) we receive a very "Holo" like character. After S&W finished it has left a hole that has never been filled in completely but I have very high hopes for this ...

    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.

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 ...

  • Could have been so much better
    From what I hear, the anime seems rushed and incomplete. Apparently alot of content is skipped over and the little details that explain what's going on are scarcely touched upon. As someone who didn't read the manga, I can tell you that sometimes time I couldn't understand the last half of the anime because it always went from point A to point C, skipping over point B, which would have explained ...

  • Surprisingly Good. More than I expected
    Alright. So. This one is definitely the old bait and switch. Came expecting a generic fantasy 'pl0t' anime, but got smacked with a roundhouse kick from economics and agriculture. Good stuff. Reminds me heavily of Spice and Wolf. I really don't wanna toss too many spoilers in, but you're reading a review. Very wholesome animu for me and just wanted to say that I enjoyed it. Maybe you will too.

  • Fast and Witty Fantasy Fun!
    Maoyu is a fantasy that is out to give you just that (plus food for thought). This anime could've easily gotten dragged down by a slow pace or over explanations, but instead it marches on toward the future over the hill that all the characters are reaching for.

    The character interactions are fun, smart, and leave you with a little smile on your face while the plot is very simple to follow even ...
