Maoyuu Maou Yuusha

Not too shabby for an otherwise boring story about heroes and demons. These types of stories are usually so boring and predictable, but this one uses the heroes and demons foundation in an entirely different way.

Maoyuu Maou YuushaI was very judgemental at first, as the hero, Yuusha, looked so damn standard, especially with that stupid thing on his head. But things soon started looking better when Maou joined the big picture. I absolutely love that character. It’s too bad her horns aren’t real though, as she looked pretty cute with it.

Anyway, the story is what interested me most of all. These stories are usually so boring and predictable; hero looks for demon lord, kills him/her and saves humanity from extinction. Not this time though. The hero and demon lord actually become a couple this time. How interesting is that!?

I’m really looking forward to seeing what happens next, and I suggest that you give it a try, too! It’s a delightful mixture of adventure, fantasy and strange romance. Just look past the protagonist’s looks. I, too, thought that I had seen those items a million times before in games and other shows.

Plot Summary: After a long and treacherous journey, our Hero finally arrives at the Dark Lady’s castle only to find himself being asked for help. The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The queen of demons however argues that this war has made the human society band together as one and showed empirical evidence how it has increased population, increased production, boosted economy and improved society overall. Furthermore, she explains to the Hero that ending this war will result in a civil war that will produce more bloodshed than there ever was. The Hero, convinced that the only way to bring peace, relatively speaking, is to join forces with the Dark Lady, agrees to help with her plans!
