    Good, but it leaves you hanging.
    I really enjoyed the story. A lot of the plot focuses on war as a means for economic gain, which is a little deep for a lot of viewers. Throwing in 2 currency theory, inflation, wtf?! Maō means to create a free market utopia with the help of Yusha. Demons and humans serve as allegorical devices trying to get you to change your mind about what is good, what is evil.

    What gets me, and maybe I'm ...

  • Good in the beginning
    Maoyu had the best hook episodes ever. The first 2-3 episodes were really great and had a ton of character development, information about the time, and a lot of info on what was happening. Slowly, but surely, it went downhill. With the MC beginning to become dry (almost robotic at times) with little to no emotion, it really let down the beginning momentum. Introduced/unneeded love interests that ...

  • Wonderful Anime, One of the reasons I subscribed
    Wonderful anime with interesting plot, characters, and scenery. While the story is worth watching for in it's own right, the anime is also beautiful and is a great anime in about the same genre as Wolf & Spice. If only there were more episodes.If you haven't watched this one already, watch an episode or two and odds are you'll watch them all. it's just that good.

    Refreshing, A New Favorite
    Lately I've been wanting to watch an anime doesn't center around juvenile angst, nihilistic violence, or pious righteousness and I found it in Maoyu.

    Well paced and beautifully thought out with characters whose personalities left an endearing and indelible impression as they matured and grew into wonderful people.

    A story imbued with the spirit of Courage, Love, Wisdom, Peace, and ...

    A Satisfying Anime with a Spice and Wolf Vibe
    After watching Spice and Wolf a year ago and thoroughly enjoying it, Maoyu is the perfect anime to fill any "void" left behind. This series is witty, political, economical, humorous, romantic, and contains a relationship with the main protagonists very similar to that of Holo and Lawrence. There is a fair amount of action, violence, and blood but that's not the main focus of the show. In fact, it ...

    excellent series, really different
    I really liked the way this developed it's a pretty smart series which teaches you how some goverments think and how the world should be. It's pretty impressive also how super powerful characters can be so human for saying the least.

    This is a must watch, maybe it needs a bit more comedy like it was at first chapters.

  • An amazing short anime.
    This anime really blew me away, it's reminiscent of spice and wolf, which I know a lot of people are saying but I feel the need to repeat it. The show makes it it's own though. What we lack in a backs story of most characters and time in this anime it more than makes up for in it's motivational vibe. Just every episode of this anime seems to scream "Keep pushing forward." For the sake of a ...

  • Awesome series! I wish there was more.
    I don't write reviews too much, but I really wanted to write one about this series.
    It was nice and very intriguing. I love the development of all the characters, and really enjoyed the romantic comedy part of the story.

    It had action, but also a plot and a story line. If you decide to watch this anime, you will not be disappointed.

    I give it 5 stars. I wish there was more, but they played ...

    One of my all time favorite anime's
    Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, it's been too long since iv'e sat down and reviewed this anime, In all honesty this tends to happen simply because animes like this can carry themselves quite well, and in the end has me feeling like iv'e found something I can remember, forever embedded in my mind as a genuine piece of unforgettable storytelling.

    I love the intellectual animes, they drive a story much ...

    This is one of the best shows I've ever seen. It's like a unicorn gave birth to an anime ment to be perfection. I think this show should be a 5 star because of it's all around amazing story ,characters , and art.
    This is also my first time writing a review and I'm glad its for a good one.
