  • 3 but 4 to balance hate
    Hey I Liked it.
    Action scenes are big and ridiculous. There isn't a single main character normal people can relate to. The cliffhanger was good but with that kind of hype where is the next season? The next time this group of people publish something they should consider the let down an audience feels when a cliffhanger lingers for too long. A nice ending with a subtle hint of a sequel would ...

  • An amazing short anime.
    This anime really blew me away, it's reminiscent of spice and wolf, which I know a lot of people are saying but I feel the need to repeat it. The show makes it it's own though. What we lack in a backs story of most characters and time in this anime it more than makes up for in it's motivational vibe. Just every episode of this anime seems to scream "Keep pushing forward." For the sake of a ...

  • Awesome series! I wish there was more.
    I don't write reviews too much, but I really wanted to write one about this series.
    It was nice and very intriguing. I love the development of all the characters, and really enjoyed the romantic comedy part of the story.

    It had action, but also a plot and a story line. If you decide to watch this anime, you will not be disappointed.

    I give it 5 stars. I wish there was more, but they played ...

    One of my all time favorite anime's
    Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, it's been too long since iv'e sat down and reviewed this anime, In all honesty this tends to happen simply because animes like this can carry themselves quite well, and in the end has me feeling like iv'e found something I can remember, forever embedded in my mind as a genuine piece of unforgettable storytelling.

    I love the intellectual animes, they drive a story much ...

  • 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.

    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 ...

  • Similar to Spice And Wolf
    If you liked Spice And Wolf, then you will likely enjoy Maoyu.

    It's a very good anime in pretty much every respect, and I highly recommend watching it.

    Honestly, it helps that I've taken economic theory, but it's still good.
    I really like this show. The beginning made me think that this would be a much more silly show than it is. I like that there is an assumption of knowledge, by the writers, about the viewers. Including more believable economic and political complications in a mix of magic and myth made for a unique show. I found it very interesting and will probably watch it again.
