The demon queen subdued enormous and powerful monsters and slaughtered over half of the world's population. Surviving members of the human race elected a hero to slay the demon queen, beseeching release from her oppressive rule. However, he questions his mission to eradicate the monsters: in his opinion, they too are conscious and alive, and so he anguishes over that fact.

Eventually, she realizes that she fell in love with the hero, and hence their journey begins...

M E H.... Overrated

I totally agree with Paragoge's review.
The story was promising, the characters were too, I mean the Hero and the Maou fall in love throughout the story, they help each other and whatnot. However the story twists were regular.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, there was a Copy already, now we need a Copy N2, really...? Shiela confessing in tears was totally legit and well placed and kind of liked it how it was placed.

Also, last chapter.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hero gets Shiela back, Third is OK with dying and willing to give up her life for Shiela but NOOOOOO she gets to live too. Really!? Plus, NO Vanilla ending? I mean, ever since we started reading Chapter 1 of Superior we knew that there was going to be a kiss, Troll Author wins.


One of the top Overrated Manga in the History of the Universe.

I liked this one, but you have to read a few volumes in before you really get back onto the plot line of the previous season. If this story had just kept going and didn't have the break between the two, I would've scored it higher.
Over all the plott is really good and I love the character growth!

...and yes, it is enjoyable. The art is beautiful, the story is decent (though easily predictable) and it leaves you with deeper thoughts sometimes... just don't expect something insanely deep or anything: you'll be disappointed. Especially with the ending.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Which, as others wrote before me, is really bad. Copy was a good big bad material and certainly didn't deserve to be just suddenly replaced by some insane pretty-guy-or-whatever-thing without any build-up, backstory or anything.

Soooo so unbelievably silly, soo cliche, soo shoujo in all the worst ways... LOVE IT. lol.

Somewhat of a parody of rpgs/fantasy/shoujo/bishies. Don't take it too seriously.

Sappier and less believable than the first half, still a guilty pleasure though.

PS how the heck is this shounen? female lead, crowd of bishies, shoujo art, barrels of sappyconfused hello-oo, ring any bells?

(This is a review of both Superior and Superior Cross)

In the beginning, I liked Superior. It was cute in that it was like an RPG with a party that included a hero, the hero's right-hand swordsman, and a mage (and later, an assassin-type) all out to destroy the Maou. And I liked how it handled Shiela's fear of the inevitable day when the hero realizes that she's the enemy, and how desperate she is to keep her identity secret. I looked forward to how Exa and the others would react upon learning that Shiela was the Big Bad they were out to kill.

But when Exa finally found out... let's just say I was not impressed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What happened to all that angsting you did, and your final conviction to believe in the Shiela that you know & love? You just suddenly throw all of this away in your rage, even though Shiela told the truth while apologizing & in tears, moments before she went and tried to sacrifice her life to save yours? :/ Ok, I guess it's understandable considering you've hated the Maou for a long time (she did kill your parents and decimated your entire hometown, not to mention half the world's population), and you feel betrayed and stuff, but then you suddenly turn around and are not mad anymore? Wait what???


I also found the ending rushed, and didn't make a whole lot of sense (or maybe that was just the scanlation).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't understand why the mangaka had to create this Original Maou character. There's Copy and Third already, why make Shiela a clone too? >>; It would have been better if the author had stuck with Shiela being the original and just prolonged the Exa vs. Shiela fight, delving more into their emotions, Exa especially. The scenes would have been more heart-wrenching, and the eventual acceptance, forgiveness, and 'I still love you' moment would have been more awwww-inducing.


All in all, it started out pretty good, but devolved into a rushed, mediocre manga that left much to be desired.

The first few volumes of this series were god, from memory. But, i'm ot sure if it's because i had high expectation after having to wait almost a year for volume 5 to be teld, but volume 5 especially seemed like a trough. The finale chapter was...weird. And the manga occassionally went pretty surreal which goes against the whole tragic vibe it had going that i loved.

Although when I read this, I was kind of struggling because most of the translations were grammatically wrong. Nonetheless, I'm still very thankful to those who even took the time to translate it and gave me and many more readers a chance to read it. But anyway, this series is just so exquisite that it can't be described with just beautiful. There's just too many words that mean wonderful that this series can be described by. This series is truly one of kind. It's a series with an ending with a very happy ending because of the hero's and his friend's goal to live in peace. Because of that most of the characters that matter don't die and everyone lives! This is what makes it one of a kind because a lot of series/novels (even though they're very good) end with someone close to the main character die or sacrificed themselves. Not only that, this series has amazing artwork!!
I have just fallen in love with this series!! &#128152;

Even though I enjoyed it very much, if I were to be honest i couldn't say it deserves a 10, and compare with Superior, this one is a lot worse.
Then again, it's between my favorites probably because I like the characters' personalities.

I had really bad feeling when I was reading the firs manga that all the naivety would lead to horrible ending. It was even worse than I expected. In addition to all stupid flash-backs.
Why
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
no one of significance dies?

Who the ... are
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Debrah, The Third, The Original Original Demon Lord and why did author had to invent them out of thin air? Ok... I remember that The Third was in the manga much earlier and confused the crap out of me

And all that naivety multiplied by overall stupidity of the sequel killed the story for me.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Exa flipped twice in a span of five or so minutes. Kill her... OH WAIT! Not kill her. -_- For no apparent reason the second time.

On the other hand the first manga got 8 from because this one was so mediocre.

The climax was friggin' awesome. It was so awesome that I didn't even get to blink my eyes.
But then again, it was a little bit confusing. I don't really get Sheila's past. And what about her being divided to three. I really don't get it. It was full of action, but the past is a bit...complicated. But never mind that, at least I know that Exa loves Sheila. woohoo!!!
