It was RPG-like setting. The humans were battling against demons. A hero, together with a white haired old fart, a mage chick, and errr… who’s the other remaining party member again? Bah, who’s the remaining one hardly matter. What’s matter is, it turned out that these party members are extra baggage after all, because the hero was strong enough travel all the way to the demon king’s castle by himself just fine. Only that he’s freaked out that the demon king is actually a female, and she has two watermelons on her chest. After some useless banters with the totally dumb and clueless hero, boing-boing-chan managed to convince him to join her side instead.
So it began, the long journey of our dumb hero and demon king, or should I say, demon queen? Or not. Since they settled in a rural village instead. They stay with an old maid who’s acting high and mighty all the time. They flirted like fools in love, even though he was freaked out from seeing boobs just one episode ago. The demon queen taught him more about farming and such, because once again, he’s a dumb-ass who’s definitely going to become a homeless person when the war ends. Later, they picked up a pair of slave sisters and make them apprentice maids. Also, the demon queen started private lessons for the villlage’s kids, because somehow, she wanted the humans to be smarter. Is that all? Well, yes.
I have to say that the education part is not bad. Instead of showing two characters talking non stop over cups of tea, they showed us various places and neat, colorful animation. The one about crop rotations is pretty neat, even though I doubted if any anime viewer wants to be a farmer, and become interested enough to learn all that.
Remember these, kids. Crop rotations. Or else your land will be ruined, and you won’t have anything to stuff your stomach with.
Now, unto the bad part. The romance. Please look at these screenshots from episode 1:
What do we have next episode? Lookie. Lookie.
Clap! Clap! Clap! *Standing applause.* Such an unbelievable romance! And here I thought I won’t see another romance as dumb as Sword Art Online. Congratulations, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha! Now, please excuse me as I am going to re-read Minami-ke manga.
- War is better than no war.
- You can totally put human’s lives on a scale. If you were asked to choose between saving one live and one hundred lives, pick the 2nd option confidently. If you were asked to choose between saving one live and two lives, pick the 2nd option confidently. Since the number of lost lives will be actually greater when the war stopped, the war must go on.
