    Decent show. Not upset I watched.
    The show was not so bad. I enjoyed it for the most part. The only thing I disliked is the sudden stop. There was much more story foreshadowed, and the anime just...ended. Otherwise, it was entertaining.

    Honestly, it helps that I've taken economic theory, but it's still good.
    I really like this show. The beginning made me think that this would be a much more silly show than it is. I like that there is an assumption of knowledge, by the writers, about the viewers. Including more believable economic and political complications in a mix of magic and myth made for a unique show. I found it very interesting and will probably watch it again.

    Interesting politics!
    Now this is new! Politics made understandable and over all, INTERESTING!

    Simply a delight to watch, the story flows at a steady, slow pace, which might not suit all, but I liked it. There's many interesting characters to like, and the character development flows beautifully whilst keeping it's logic.

    Econ 101 in RPG land
    Economics are interesting. RPGs and their typical cliche devices are fun.
    I'm giving 5 stars mostly for the beautiful poetic movements of the first episode, it was powerfully enchanting. Beyond that was just a logical(but not so much predictable) progression from that point - so if you know economics very well, you might watch the first episode, and tell yourself you can guess the rest of it, and ...

  • Excepcional anime educativo
    Antes de qualquer coisa deixemos algo claro: Maoyuu tem um começo lento.

    É necessário certa paciência para apreciar o ritmo e as nuances deste surpreendente anime educativo. Sim, EDUCATIVO!

    Por trás de uma história de amor e aventura, esconde-se um anime político e educacional que ajuda a explicitar as relações econômicas e sócio-políticas da era medieval.

    Some isto a uma das melhores ...

    Eh my thought about this anime.....
    i remembered how this anime was on the top of the list, but now its some where in the middle. i watched the first episode and i honestly thought this wasn't a bad anime however, its super slow. the plot was kind of interesting a first, but then it down felled really hard when we figured out this wasn't a hack and slash anime, but instead its a anime about creating a "civilization".(or something ...

    Okay, could have been better
    It could have been better in my opinion. It started out strong but then along the way it was getting too technical and the story would suddenly jump without a smooth transition. The ending wasn't that great but fine. Some of the relationships of the characters left you wondering if they were going to be together or something, those were small plot holes in the story.

    Appealing to all sorts
    Maoyu is a great anime!! Why only the 3 starts then, I feel as if they could have done a lot more with the "Hero" of the story. The anime has so many places it could have went, but never seemed to take it there. I have high hopes for a season 2!! Would I recommend this anime? YES!!! If you can make it to the end, I will find you will be waiting for a season 2 yourself =)

    Medieval History Through A Fantasy Lens
    The creators of Spice & Wolf pull another fun switcharoo by setting up what appears to be a love story between a Hero and his supposed enemy ... and delivering not only that, but also a high-minded lesson on history and economics, all dressed up in fantasy clothes. Half the fun of this show, for me, is looking at the plot to see what all it is saying about the medieval world, but this does ...
