  • 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 ...

    Maoyu The Hero and The Demon King
    Not what I expected after reading reviews about this anime. Its got a little bit of action, romance, comedy, serious economics, religion, and well tons of stuff.

    Its a ride in the dark ages when two people have the ability to make a difference and change the world for the better. Even if one of them is the Hero and the other is the Demon King. It covers tons of topics around those ...

  • 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, ...

  • 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 ...

    Pretty good change on war animes
    First its all about war and hero trying to defeat the evil but later on things changes and what we would call bad guys and good guys will change, to look further behind whos evil and what you really should do and not belive that you do right even though you are a hero

    Story:
    It was a good change and HAD the feeling between them like spice and wolf did.
    Would like to know what and how they ...
