Maoyuu Maou Yuusha : A Tale of A Non-Hero and His Bitches

1 Apr

Here we are, the most shitty anime I have watched this season.

Synopsis

This anime started with our Gary Stu joining force with a busty demon king, because she’s supposedly a good demon and want to work for the goodness of both demons and humans. They stayed in some southern village, makes some inventions and black market deals behind the curtain. They helped any fighting force as they see fit. There is also a young merchant who helped them because he does get profits from doing it. Later, the demon king got possessed by ancient souls, but our Gary Stu woke her by talking and hugging. Other than the last sentence, it sounds pretty normal, huh. So what makes this anime a shit anime?

The Setting

The setting is horrible. It seems to be made by some middle schooler, who’s ripping it off from an RPG he played. There is a human world and demon world, one on the surface, while the other one is underground. Okay, that sounds normal. The problem is, we are never explained just how many countries are there in the human world? There is the southern kingdom where our Gary Stu resides, and central kingdom where our Merchant come from. But the other countries are simply being called “other country”. We are shown a lot of nobles / old farts / factions, but we don’t know who or where did they come from. We are shown a lot of maps, but they are shitty and don’t make a tiny bit of sense. Can you picture a wholesome world map from those scrappy unrelated maps? I don’t think so. Next, the demon world. Just how many kind of demons are there? They should have factions and races, right? As being said in the last episode. But we never know. We are shown a bunch of CG monsters instead, which is done by continuous copy-paste in Adobe Photoshop.

The Character

Not only the characters are nameless, they are all archtypes, who are not even worth to be called characters. Their personalities are mostly pure one type, and their actions are all predictable and so painful to watch. Let’s start with our Hero, or should I say, non-Hero. This guy is portrayed as stupid virgin, as this type is well liked by otaku of 2ch. By having a stupid virgin as the protagonist, they can rest assured that their waifu won’t be soiled, and they can stay pure as the otaku’s goddesses. That’s how it is. This non-Hero guy freaked out from seeing boobs. He pretended to sleep when two hot women paid him a visit in the middle of the night, and they sneaked into his bed even. Please tell me, boys, would you be as stupid as him? What else does a woman want when she sneaks into your room at night? This is so stupid. It’s too painful to watch. The redhead demon girl is totally in love with him, he seems to like her too, they are both adult man and woman, and there’s nothing stopping him to screw her. But until the end, they haven’t even kissed once. *inserts a picture of Jesus Facepalm here*

Next, the women. There are two main women who are in love with the non-Hero. A blonde and a redhead. The blonde is, well, another Gary Stu. She’s really strong. Manly. Flat-chested. Yet turned dere in front of him. The redhead is the demon king. She’s ultra smart, if I may say. She must be smarter than Isaac Newton or Albert Einstein, for reasons I will talk about later. Of course, she’s totally in love with our non-Hero too. How should I explain the characters of these women? Err… “I want to do my best. For mankind. For my man. For world peace!” That kind of character. Bah. Next.

The support characters have even thinner personality. There’s a scary old maid with sharp tongue. A young maid who’s somehow super smart and helpful despite only started studying when she’s a teen. A loli maid who hasn’t grown an inch after three years, and serves no purpose other than being cute. An evil merchant who only acts when it benefits him. A king who’s purely good and devote all his life to his people. An old fart who is totally perverted and nothing else. A cutie mage who talks like robots, with unknown back story. Evil villains who laugh like horses and stab everything that moves.

The Story

The story is shit as well. Not a surprise, huh. Even though this is a visual medium, we aren’t shown things, instead we are being told a lot of events through talkings. “Oh, by the way, Yuusha has done this and that.” We never saw that, only some maid / redhead doing the talking. Also it has a lot of time skips. “Oh, half a year has passed.” “Oh, three months has passed.” What happened during those times? Let me tell you, honey, said some of the characters. So I sit there, with my palm rested on my cheek, listened to “Bla.. bla.. bla…” The contents of the story are mixed bags. There are middle school economics, pitiful wars with CG soldiers and CG monsters and CG ships, stupid romance as the bitches fought over the non-Hero, stupid villains getting confused among themselves, stupid NPCs admiring the demon king’s inventions. Oh, there’s a special section for that later. Just when I thought I was going to see something cool, as the non-Hero went to fight his possessed bitch, when I thought I was going to see a flashy battle, it ended in a most anti climatic way. Non-Hero cured his bitch from being possessed, just by hugging her and talking to her. He didn’t even need to slap her once. Also, it’s an open ending / unfinished story. You can’t help but scratch your head at the end of episode 12, and ask “Huh?? Is that it?” I pray that there won’t be a 2nd season, because it has pitiful sales anyway.

The Production Value

The production value of this anime, is honestly, atrocious. In order to cut budget, it uses a lot of still pictures instead of animation. What is this? A powerpoint presentation? Not an anime? Also the CG ships and sea and CG squids are horrible. It seems to be come out of handheld console games. A lot of fights are being told instead of being shown. Also, wars are short and unfinished. There are barely any decent animated fights in 12 episode. Oi. A good animation company have to be daring to spend big money, and get big money in return. Bakayarou.

The Unexplainable Power Level

Our main character is said being able to go to war against a legion of demons by himself and win. He can teleport anywhere in the human world. He can fly like Superman / Super Saiyan. The blonde bitch used various skills named after him. He can perform wide scale thunder storm attack. He can destroy a mountain without breaking a sweat. Okay. Those descriptions alone shouldn’t be a problem, I know. After all, many fcitional characters are as powerful as that, more powerful even. What makes this anime shitty is, the hero and his groups are too powerful by themselves! I didn’t see a villain / outsider who stand a chance against them? This isn’t the case when it comes to other fictions. This non-Hero can defeat any other character just like breaking a baby’s arm. He’s totally Gary Stu and unbeatable. In a sense, he’s level 99 by himself! Excuse me. By RPG logic, in order to reach a particular level, you have to farm / beat monsters of similar levels, and accumulate experience points from them, don’t you? But all monsters that I saw in this anime are weak ass! Even the demon king got her scythe broken / bent using his bare hands! She strangled him but I bet he held himself back in order not to hurt her. This guy has a worldly vast difference power level compared to others. Is he born powerful? Bleh. How did he get the experience points to reach such level? Who trained him? Himself? While other people do battle carrying swords, pikes, spears, and horses, this guy soared and watched everything from “heaven”. *inserts another picture of Jesus Facepalm*

The Ass Pull Science

In this anime, our redhead Demon King has all kind of advanced knowledge which doesn’t match the era / the setting of the world. We can clearly see that this world is still in middle age. Because the buildings use stone blocks as main ingredients. Because people do war using horses, and iron / copper equipments. The only occupations are farmer and trader. There are nobles and landlords. This is clearly a fictional world in the past. Yet! This redhead can invent printing press machine! Later, she invented vaccine! She invented rifles as well! WTF. Where did she obtain the knowledge? The gap is too huge. You can do those by simply being holed up in your bedroom for several months? I was waiting for her to pull an airplane out of her ass next. Did she get the knowledge from demon world? But we can see that the demon world is as primitive as the human world! Unless she is a time traveller, but that doesn’t seem to be the case here.

Conclusion

I admit that there are some good parts. For example, we are being taught about how awesome potatoes are. LOL. Also how the Merchant played with economy / people’s food. But I wonder why didn’t everybody gang up to rape him? I mean, rob him? It’s such a primitive and unorganized world to begin with. People can only stare dumbfounded when he bought all the food? Also, the dragon princess is a fine character. Yeah. But those aren’t enough to salvage this anime.

Final score : 3/10

Recommendation : none. I haven’t watched any other anime as atrocious as this one.
