Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - "Kono Watashi no Mono Tonare, Yuusha yo" "Kotowaru!"  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
After a long and treacherous journey, our Hero finally arrives at the Overlord’s castle only to find himself being asked for help. The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The Overlord however argues that this war has made the human society band together as one and showed empirical evidence how it has increased population, increased production, boosted economy and improved society overall. Furthermore, she explains to the Hero that ending this war will result in a civil war that will produce more bloodshed than there ever was. The Hero, convinced that the only way to bring peace, relatively speaking, is to join forces with the Overlord, agrees to help with her plans!

I tried reading this manga last year but dropped it after getting overwhelmed with the economic talk of the first chapter. Tried it again today and forced myself to read through the first chapter. After that I was pleasantly surprised at how pleasant the story was. Art style is good, characters are endearing (especially the little maid, so cute!) and the story is actually interesting. Looking forward to the next chapter and I pray this series will continue according to the mangaka's wishes (i.e. not cancelled by the publishers or hampered by illness.)

One of the most interesting manga ive ever read.

The fighting is a bit hard to take serious as the hero can kill just about anything with absolute ease if he wanted to.... not to mention being able to tele through defenses... basically just a giant godmod lol. Whats interesting is the character development, plot, comedy, and romance spread throughout the story. I always find myself hoping to see a new chapter of this every time i check recent updates. Surely not a title to pass up, and a manga that deviated from the average path in a splendid way.

I saw this title a few times, here and there. Finally decided to give it a try and guess what.. its great!!
Of course the "hero + demon queen theme" was done already in "Superior" but this is still most original manga i've read in years!
Now i don't know how good other versions are (i prefer to stick to one.. yea), but reading this one feels like reading a great book (lots of text - i don't mind).

I won't go into: characters are blah blah, art is this and that, or whatever. Because everything fits great! Don't read this comment, read the manga!

Clear 10/10 from me biggrin

The premises of this manga are one of a kind. Truly unique, spellbinding, and charming. The art is beautiful, and the character designs are incredibly well done. Kind of reminds me of Spice and Wolf actually xD.

Keynsian eco

A very biased look into keynsian economics, thry often do not offer the counter argument and historically backed free market economics. However it does offer a easy to understand version of keynsian theories. A good manga with great plot but it has become evident that japanese culture has become used to keynsian economic views as the united states has.

Great mix of intelligent story, drama and comedy

An unusual duo set out to improve the lives of as many people as possible.

This manga has incredible writing, an interesting story, great deep characters, great art, great pace.
The only possible downside may be that there's a lot of text explaining economics/agriculture in the first 2 chapters and there's generally a lot to read and relatively little action up till now, but I personally did not mind at all, because *everything* was interesting.
I was surprised how this manga manages to stay interesting with each chapter and I love how this manga examines philosophical questions. (e.g. how the word "evil" is usually meaningless or simply relative.)
And it doesn't waste your time with senseless side plots.

I've read so many mangas which were riddled with logical fallacies/misconceptions, making me facepalm most of the time when characters had dialogues. Not here: The characters who are supposed to be intelligent also sound intelligent (at least to me).

This manga adaption of Maoyuu is unique, intelligent, cute, funny, beautiful, real (within the fantasy-setting of course), emotional, educational and so much more. There's some fanservice in the form of Demon Queen's cleavage, too.

This has become my new favorite manga.
Maoyuu may not be for everyone, but it's a *must-read* in my opinion.

(This review is for chapters 1-8)

You got Macroeconomics in my Fantasy setting!

I'll say this upfront, this is a dense story. If you have no interest in economic theory, avoid this series. You could swap this series with a modern setting and it'd be exactly the same.

That said, if you liked Spice and Wolf, you can't go wrong here. The antics of the main characters are nothing more than lighthearted breaks between walls of text and its not shy about admitting it. Months can pass between chapters and theres very little action (theres literally no combat in the first 4 chapters).

Quite Enjoyable

This manga is to Macro Economics what Spice and Wolf is to Micro Economics.
It also has a political angel as the main characters have to deal with the major powers.
Juxtapositioned between these to main themes is Maou(Dark Lord/Lady) crushing on Yuusha(Hero) and some humor/lightheartedness with the Demon, and later Human, maids.

Rating: 5 of 5 (as of ch10)
This manga is for those who like to think about the big picture of geopolitics and all that it encompasses in a fantasy environment, and not just the good-guy(s) takes-out the bad-guy(s), and everyone lives haply ever after.

Should Not Judge the Series With Its Text   
Rating: 10.0 / 10.0

First of all when I read the summary of this manga, (the release is still around ch 1-2), I interested in it. And try to read it, and... got confuse with the text, and all of economic thingy. Dropped it.
Then after some time, in a coincidence, I click this series again, and got surprised, why this kind of series (around ch 6-7) can get so many people read it (and with a good rating too). Got curious again.
So, I try to read it again (with a bit forcing it for ch 1). Well, it was paid off, I really was too fast to judge the manga, the series is really addicting, the economy thing that I thought is hard is explained here really easy and it's pretty common knowledge for us.
And the more I read it the series doesn't stuck in the relationship between the hero and demon queen like some other manga I know (but I still like it).

Amazingly complex plot with adorable characters   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

Reminded me of one of my most favorite series Spice and Wolf as most of you would notice. It's a type of plot you don't see that often in manga. I love medieval theme a lot and I somehow ended loving the economic aspect of it as well. Interaction between characters is executed well and is pretty cute sometimes(Isn't Maou just adorable? Even the Demon Girl ticks off my radar a little). But the economic plot isn't really for everyone to enjoy and you will ended up reading a wall of text at times.
I personally would like to give this manga a 10 just because it really falls into my personal preference and I don't mind a wall of text since I read it about 3 times from start to current translated chapter(Chapter 7). But the only reason I give it a 9 is because it isn't for everyone to enjoy. Wall of text, complicated plot that might bothers some readers.

But overall, a very good series if you're not scared away by the warning. xD
