In case you where still wondering, NO I'm not reviewing porn... yet. That was an April's Fools joke, although the number of views it has gotten isn't surprising. Anyway, if you want Spice & Wolf porn, there are other places to find it. This is a serious and clean blog... well mostly clean. Anyway, onto my review of Maoyu, short for Maou Yuusha (or Demon King and Hero), a series that takes the most cliche of fantasy tropes, and completely throws it on it's head, through the power of an agricultural revolution!
|"Join me, Hero!" "I'll Never join you!" "Huh?... Why not?"|
|Now it is time to teach you all about agriculture!|
|Take that Scribes! We now have a Printing Press!|
Even with the issues of pacing, and removed content: Maoyu is a series that just doesn't come around that often. It is smart, well developed, extremely funny, and even educational. The only people who wouldn't enjoy the series would be people who don't like to think when they are watching anime, or even refuse to think. The characters are likable, the story is excellent, and there are both moments that are laugh out loud funny as well as moments that threaten to pull your heart right out of your rib cage with how emotionally draining it is. Maoyu is a Must Watch!
Until next time.
