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

    Wednesday, December 09, 2015
    8:36 PM

    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 ...

    Pretty good but.....
    Maoyu was a pretty good anime in my regards the story advanced perfectly, the art was amazing and elements were introduced and described but what really ticked me off was the ending I hoped for an ending where we could actually see the future of their world the demons and humans respectively and also the relationship between the hero and the demon king.

    Maoyu was personally a great anime but I ...

  • The Demon King is a girl?
    Maoyu may confuse you at times with the constant talk about economics but it is still a good series. Me and maybe a few other people want a 2nd season because of the way it just stopped and didn't really explain if they resolved the main conflict or not, but either way it is worth watching.

  • will there be a 2nd season?
    Good anime. Some parts diverged away from the main conflict, the human-demon war and the politics behind it.This made a few episodes a bit boring and difficult to watch. What makes matters worse, the last episode does not conclude the story and points toward a cliff hanger. You may need to get your hands on the light novels to catch up/finish the story.

  • Great!! It Didn't End Right, Though.
    Everyone around here describes Maoyu as an Economics class, and there's some politics thrown in too. I really liked the characters, as well as seeing their interactions and the plans that they put into action throughout the story. I like the art style, as well.

    My only real complaint is the last episode - it sets up for the story's ending, but the anime doesn't actually get there. ...

  • What a Great and enticing story!
    This anime really made me think about many aspects of life most take for granted and the internal working of many official positions. An anime I feel it was great and always had me wanting more but, I with there was more action and the story was completed not just ended. Sadly due to the end of the light novels there will be no season 2. But I really hope i'm wrong!!!! You won't regret this anime ...

  • 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 ...
