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. Sheila the Demon Queen became interested in him and decides to join his journey, hiding her identity and planning to kill him after she has gained his trust. Immediately, however, she realizes that she's fallen in love with the hero, and hence their journey begins...

Tries to hard for the "cool"factor

The art is quite nice. I really liked the character designs. But the characters fall short, and as a result, the story also falls short due to its dependency on the characters. The characters are too distant or suave. It feels like the mangaka is trying too hard to incite a "woah bro, this is deep" feeling, but there is nothing original about how the characters feel, so it just comes out flat.

So far disappointing

Boring and naive. In 90% of the cases I hate the concept of "don't kill whatever the cost", it's usually used in a very childish and shallow manner, like here. Got to agree with asmageddon, this just didn't feel "real" in any layer (just consider in 1 chapter alone the demon lord goes from killing half of humanity to never killing again... that's char development... likewise, other chars change like pancakes after 1 talk or event, I find it lame) so yeah it is a bit of a disappointment and with so much interesting manga out there I'm dropping this for now after finishing vol2, thou I do hope to pick it up again sometime.

Better then what I was expecting

Even though it started out as a typical adventure manga. It had more depth then what I was expecting.. I would have liked to see more mature drama between the hero and her in this one but overall it was a well written well drawn out story (prequel).

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
jumps straight to the point right from the start. The hero comes to slay he demon lord. She though falls for him so easily... And they go on different adventures. Some chapters are hard to get through because of how wordy and lengthy the chapters are. It took me by suprised.. Cause everytime I thought I was getting bored with the story. They found a new way some how to keep it interesting. It ends with a mini battle and questions as to what is going to happen next

Premise is kind of funny and some of the comedy works. However, there isn't a real good balance between comedy and drama. All these people that have had to endure cruelty and harsh lives is sometimes handled flippantly. The author also doesn't know the difference between showing and telling. Its quite annoying when we are hit over the head with another rushed explanation of a new characters tragic background. The romance part though is cute and works for me. Some of the character designs are nice like Maou-sama (the Demon Lord). I also like some of the cover art. The dialogue has a shoujo-esque quality at times. Plus it unfortunately gets progressively dumber and childish as the series goes along. So some decent art, a funny premise and crappy storytelling ends up making this really mediocre which is unfortunate.

Manga starts off good, keeps you hooked, interested and the comedy is very good. Don't judge a manga by comments alone, read the first volume and decide for yourself because I found the manga better than what the comments said. My only warning which isn't a warning is the first series of Superior ends like in the middle of the series, and continues into the second series of Superior which is completely scanlated. It is not much of a warning but in reality both series were suppose to be 1 series but it was split for some reason. Recommended for people who enjoy action, comedy and romance.

In the top five

Superior is one of my top five favorite manga in the whole wide world. Why? Because the art is beautiful, the plot is intriguing, and the characters are cool as hell. It is a great manga, just give it a chance. Yes, the beginning is a little rocky and the ideals of the Hero are cliche. He has his reasons, don't just think that he wont kill because he's an average shounen hero. You can identify with all the characters, even the ones that come into play later. You can even relate to the poor walking head grandpa. And the artwork is beautiful and elegant (as it progresses) and you are instantly drawn in.

While there are several problems, I find that they are so insignificant that it is possible to just read it and enjoy it.

Oh, for anyone that wants to know (in no specific order) my faves, here

1.)Taiyou no Ie
2.)Red River
3.)Usotsuki Lily

It IS totally luv it or hate it!'s silly, it's sappy, it borders on the ridiculous, it's got some ho-yay and eye-blistering amounts of bishies - BUUUUUT, it's just sooo dang charming and sweet that most of us don't seem to care!!!!

hence: PURE WIN.

This is my first comment basically ever, so please bear with me.

I really liked the art style and the characters, as sappy as they are sometimes. The plot overall is pretty straightforward to the point that whatever vague idea you have of the ending (besides a "plot twist" or two) is probably quite accurate. I'm a little surprised by how highly rated it is, but if you want some fantasy adventure cliche because you love some aspects of fantasy but don't have enough time to read lots of them (like me), then Superior is a pretty good option.

This is just my try on putting my opinion out there. Whether it's a good thing or a bad thing, this series compelled me to type out a comment, so it's definitely "something." It's not a 1, but it's not a 10 either, and I think some people who commented are really invested in only a few aspects and only raging or fangirling about those parts. Like most things, it's not just "love it or hate it." Only the reader can form his or her own opinion, and I just hope that I cleared up some misconceptions about Superior.

I would have loved this manga if not for one thing : MC Prinicipal view (in other words BullSH*t)

The male character has this annoying trait which albeit few other Shonen heroes share, "I can't kill coz all lives are valuable" BS

according to the MR.Hero of this manga Rapists, killers, Murderers etc are all EQUALS and deserves the same treatment (aka morality Bullsh*t galore)

Seriously this manga had sooo much potential, when i read the synopsis abt a Hero and Villain teaming up and going along a journey i was excited and some of the fans even told me that the Devil goes through alot of character development but how could i even reach that point when this OH SO GHANDIAN MR.Hero is there to annoy me at every page with his oh soo BS Philosophy

how i wish the MC was just pure badass dude minus all that morality bs i am sure i would have loved it more
