Maoyuu Maou Yuusha 01 – Yuusha, Maou, Economics and a Dakimakura

Illogicalzen writes:

Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is a rather fascinating story that attempts to delve into the economic, social and cultural realities of warfare and the affect that they have on the wider population of numerous kingdoms, or in countries. The only other series that explored the affects of economy on kingdoms and those who rule them so far has to be Ookami to Kyoushinryou (Spice and Wolf), interestingly enough the Maoyuu Maou Yuusha reunites Holo and Lawrence in the form of their voice actors, although Fukuyama Jun is now stuck in my mind as The Dark Flame Master thanks to Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai. What is particularly interesting about Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is its setup, with Yuusha on a quest to destroy the terrible Maou and rid the world of ‘his’ corruption and destruction. Such a story sounds like something out of any classic fantasy, with elements of King Arthur and his noble quest, or even Lord of the Rings and its world where good and evil are apparently easily defined. (Anime, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha)

So far the show is ok. I knew it would have a lot of ecchi moments. I just hope the action is there next episode.

Judging from the manga the action is intermittent since the story is mostly about the intricacies of how human society works and the reasons behind warfare, there are however certain action sequences when Yuusha gets bored and wants to run off and kick general-ass.

Oh OK, as long as the story is good i'll continue to watch it. So far i dropped one show this season.
