  • 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.

  • Read the manga instead
    The anime is very rushed compared to the manga and the art is nowhere near the same level. This anime would had needed atleast 25 episodes

    The anime is average and the manga/LN is top notch

  • This is such a good show that I wish it had not ended.
    Love and how it can transcend anything, is only a part of this show lol the rest deals with the evolution of society, the workings of economics and war, and explains just how much bigger society is than most people give it thought. It is touching, and makes one believe in a better society...plus you know, magic ^^

  • Good anime but horrible ending
    Overall Maoyu was a good show and I like almost everything about it except for the ending. If your one of those people who can't stand watching an anime without an ending then don't watch this it's the biggest cliff hanger ever. If that doesn't bother you then you will find this show entertaining.Other then the ending I liked everything about this show, from the characters to how it was drawn, ...
