    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.

  • Excepcional anime educativo
    Antes de qualquer coisa deixemos algo claro: Maoyuu tem um começo lento.

    É necessário certa paciência para apreciar o ritmo e as nuances deste surpreendente anime educativo. Sim, EDUCATIVO!

    Por trás de uma história de amor e aventura, esconde-se um anime político e educacional que ajuda a explicitar as relações econômicas e sócio-políticas da era medieval.

    Some isto a uma das melhores ...

    Okay, could have been better
    It could have been better in my opinion. It started out strong but then along the way it was getting too technical and the story would suddenly jump without a smooth transition. The ending wasn't that great but fine. Some of the relationships of the characters left you wondering if they were going to be together or something, those were small plot holes in the story.

  • Rushed. But Amazing!
    This anime has a very, very quick pacing to it. So much so that it has a constant 'rushed' feel...but at the same time it seems to fit the anime just fine. The only REAL issue I have with it (As the rushed feeling was just a very minor one) is that the ending was absolutely horrible...even if it did set up this Anime for a Second Season.

    Also, ignore your first impressions of this anime! If ...

  • Amazing and different!
    Love this anime, it has some romance, action and economics in it as well!! If you're like me and started watching this anime because of the Manga, then i'm sure you'll like it since it's exactly like the manga!
    It's a really good anime with a really good plot! I recommend it

  • Enjoyable anime but needs more
    Maoyu Mao Yuusha is a pretty decent anime. I have not seen many anime where they do not use any real names, just honorifics. There was some originality in the anime but I felt that it was too quick. The anime had a lot of potential to become great but with only 12 episodes they couldn't expand too much. Overall I probably wouldn't watch a second time unless they came out with a second season but ...

  • Can I just say the word 'more'
    I'm a sucker for a romance and adding high ideals mixed with practical politics and economics just makes it better.
    If there is a place it doesn't shine, it is in the fact that it's too short.
    Even given that, the storyline was left in such a way that it can be continued with ease and allows for more in depth character development... it's almost like I watching a PV of an awesome ...

    short review With a longer review on YouTube
    This anime has got to be one of the few best from that season. The character development was rather fast paced and you don't get any background until they reappear later in the show. The starting point is a battle so you will get hooked right away with all the commotion that occurs. One flaw that i noted is that is was a bit to fast paced that you are being rushed through the plot. .. i have ...

  • I <3 this anime like a camel
    I love this! I read tons of fairy tales and fables (ie. Andersen, Grimm, Aesop/?) so maybe that's why i love it so much! Anyways, this is splendid to the point that i watched up to 12 episodes in a night...err, sorta morning too.

  • Like Spice and Wolf but younger
    Intricate plots involving politics, war and trade underpinning an awkward romance.

    The characters are a bit less mature regarding their sexuality than the ones in S&W, and it might be a little easier to keep up with.

    If you hated "Spice and Wolf" (which I totally LOVED) then stay away from this one.
