  • I <3 this anime like a camel
    I love this! I read tons of fairy tales and fables (ie. Andersen, Grimm, Aesop/?) so maybe that's why i love it so much! Anyways, this is splendid to the point that i watched up to 12 episodes in a night...err, sorta morning too.

    short review With a longer review on YouTube
    This anime has got to be one of the few best from that season. The character development was rather fast paced and you don't get any background until they reappear later in the show. The starting point is a battle so you will get hooked right away with all the commotion that occurs. One flaw that i noted is that is was a bit to fast paced that you are being rushed through the plot. .. i have ...

    It Had Alot of Potential.
    It's first episode was delightful to watch, between the wonderful interactions between The Demon King and Hero and the interesting mix of economics and its effects on war. After that first episode though, everything felt like it was on fast forward and felt like things were just made up as it went along. Characters were hardly developed at all and only one character (The elder of the 2 sisters) ...

    One of the better storys I've seen in a while.
    Taking the classic story of Hero vs Demon King and flipping it on its head, in a good-great way. The characters are great from the OP Hero to the cute little maid. Story was wonderful, I just wish there was more. And do not forget the humor lots of humor to make you smile. ^^

  • Can I just say the word 'more'
    I'm a sucker for a romance and adding high ideals mixed with practical politics and economics just makes it better.
    If there is a place it doesn't shine, it is in the fact that it's too short.
    Even given that, the storyline was left in such a way that it can be continued with ease and allows for more in depth character development... it's almost like I watching a PV of an awesome ...

    Great for the older crowd of anime lovers
    This show was everything spice and wolf was trying to be. Had to watch it twice it was so good. If you like a magical view of history with a great love story this is the show to watch. Everything about this show was great.

    Another Linebarrels of Iron.
    This was disappointing, especially after reading the manga. They forced a much more awkward atmosphere onto the scene, where as in the original, the characters were usually smarter, thoughtful, or serious.

    Blurring the line between anime and historical drama
    Anyone who has ever played a hero adventure game comes into this with some expectation that they know what they will find. But those things that we expect to find familiar and comforting are out on the peripheries. If you're old enough to be watching this, then you've probably learned the basics about feudal Europe, and so instead of settling into your vast knowledge of anime dynamics and game ...

  • Enjoyable anime but needs more
    Maoyu Mao Yuusha is a pretty decent anime. I have not seen many anime where they do not use any real names, just honorifics. There was some originality in the anime but I felt that it was too quick. The anime had a lot of potential to become great but with only 12 episodes they couldn't expand too much. Overall I probably wouldn't watch a second time unless they came out with a second season but ...

    Smart and gorgeous to look at.
    Though it is not heavy with action it more than makes up for it with its brilliantly intelligent story. the characters are unique and you'll quickly fall in love with all of them. In addition to this the audio and visuals for this show are astonishing, the OP is beautiful and it is clear that the animators put their all into bringing the story to life. This show is hands down worth watching with ...
