  • A very in depth anime!
    I'm going to make this very quick and to the point: the show is slightly confusing at certain points but overall it's definitely one of my favorites. It, a lot like Spice and Wolf, goes in depth on topics such as fluctuating currencies, feudal politics, etc. I'll admit I had to watch the show two or three times over to really get it. Worth a watch if you enjoy fantasy romance with a lot ...

  • Its a wonderful little gem.
    This is a good show. it is set in medieval world where humans are in conflict with demons. In this world, like many fantasy worlds, are leaning on the brink of falling apart. So a Hero charges in to save the day, and defeat the Demon King. That is about, for me at least, when the cliche stopped.

    The characters are all dealing with their worlds war and its effect to the world in different ways ...

  • Solid Superpowered Hero Anime
    So let me tell you about this guy...
    He's ultra powerful, capable of destroying thousands of troops in a single blow, and he's in love with the demon king.
    Why is there a female on the cover? Well SHE is the Demon King. Kind, Intelligent, Old Fashioned, and AWESOME.

    Enjoy my friends. This one was well done.

  • Great Anime to watch this time around.
    Its quite a refreshing anime compare to other anime in this site. Great character development but one Issue I had is the overwhelming power of the hero LOL. But it has a great story line and will leave you or make you beg for more. I do hope there is a season 2 for this great anime.

  • Better than i expected.
    A well written story about economics and war and the solution to famine and unjust rule by greedy nobles and a corrupt church organization. The budding relationship between the demon king and the hero sent to kill her theirs not much about this anime I didn't like except for the ending of which their isn't one this seems to be the trend with the anime industry and its about as bad a trend as their ...

  • Absolutely amazing. A title that can stand proudly beside Spice and Wolf.
    The very first show that depicts war as a tool for the powerful to profit, in material and influence. I went in expecting an interesting adventure story with the Hero and the Demon King (mostly simple things with a straightforward overarching theme), but came out grinning ear to ear and stunned.

    This is an intellectual and fun show. Our MCs, the Hero and the Demon King, both possess powerful ...

  • Maoyu --How they pulled it off.
    Maoyu -- 12 episodes

    Maoyu seems so simple: just a lovely fairy tale romance story -- at first. Then, the densely packed layers in this gently told tale start to unfold. It begins with what Joseph Campbell called "The Hero's Journey" and proceeds into one of the most lucid, elegant, treatises on socio-economic politics, war, education, and the proper ...

    Just another hero with no balls
    What a boring anime, first episode was so much fun with the reverse roles but then the useless hero makes this show horribly boring to watch, a dense, wimpy, oxymoronic, strongest in the world hero should have no place in this anime. Off to the next anime.

    All Bones and No Meat
    This story has the potential to be really fun and exciting show but sadly it simply never materialized that way. The show is based on a series of light novels which span 5 volumes. Season 1 of the show contains volume 1 of the LN and some of volume 2. There are currently no plans for a Season 2 of the show. That should tell you a lot right there. The story simply isn't anywhere near complete. You ...

  • Show is much Better than it looks.
    This show isn't about the crazy battles or intense adventure. Instead this show is about what is happening behind the scenes.
    The show is about a war between humans and demons, but does not talk much about the military battles, but instead about the political an economical struggles that are going on behind the scenes.
    I am definitely someone who loves a good action anime, but every once in a ...
