    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.

    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.

  • 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!
