  • 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.

  • Seriously Worth Watching!
    If you enjoy a great story with a slight twist, then Maoyu will certainly deliver. I was hooked after the 1st episode, and have been watching it every since. As one reviewer said previously, leave your expectations at the door!
    I don't know about anyone else, but I also love the intro!!!

    Leave your expectations at the door.
    To be honest, I was not sure what to expect for this show when I first decided to give it a try. I knew it would not be your normal fare, and I hoped it would be something worth watching. The first episode hooked me right away. The story is an intelligent and thought provoking look at an interesting decision made by two people who by all rights should be enemies. If I were going to categorize ...

  • An interesting world
    The show takes an interesting and realistic look at a world that lives on a war economy and doesn't know how to stop. It reminds me of the lessons we learned from World War One, durring the war the north american economies were booming, after the war the economic system was never re-tooled for peace, the depression lasted until Europe was at war again, the sales of weaponry and food revitalized ...

    This is very promising
    Only one episode so far and I am hooked. Its cute, its funny, and hopes of battle scenes... WITH *drum roll* a decent plot. It was a little scattered but it pulls together after the first 10 minutes. The Hero seems too naive but given his situation I cant blame him. The Demon King is gorgeous and very funny... and she looks like my ex... damn it

    Very Exited About This - Shows Real Promise
    I'm excited about this show! The first episode was very enjoyable. I liked the setting, the back story and the interactions between the main characters. There were some very humorous things that happened in the first episode. Hopefully that's just a "taste" of things to come. Looking forward to the rest of the series!

    It's a promising show
    I just watched the first episode and it was quite rushed for my taste, but it was good. Promising, I would say. The mais couple has a good chemestry, even though it was more of a arranged marriage than a love story and the background story is interesting. Let's see where it goes...

    Highly Promising - Awaiting More
    Although I found the Hero to be slightly jaded, that's what he is supposed to be. The whole idea of this seems pretty cool, and I'm totally going along for a ride with this. I loved the first episode, and can't wait for the next!

    Has potential to be great
    At first this appears to be the same dry and predictable story that many anime have already tried, but if you give it a chance it starts to surprise and intrigue you. Hopefully it will retain those qualities as the season develops. The animation also looks great. I am a fan of any anime that can make you laugh one second and emotionally grip you the next. Will also be curious how the eventual ...
