Description
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...

No proper ending? Horrible artwork? Not shounen-ish? I can't help but think that y'all read a different series entirely. The sequel, SuperiorCross, continues the series so it would have been pointless, and possibly detrimental, for the mangaka to tie up all the loose knots. I loved the series dearly except for two key points. First, the character designs were great, though the actual development of side characters was non-existent. The second problem was that the plot's pace slowed down in the later volumes.

WHATS WITH ALL THE 10 RATINGS

Concept was good but the mangaka just killed it, right at the first chapter. I can't see how this is shounen, although the art is refreshing, it's really not that great. Horrible character designs, epsecially on the guys. Another series without a proper ending... what a letdown. Finding out how it ends was the only reason I didn't drop thisr.

but that kind of drawing doesn't go well in white and black. also, the costume is excessive everywhere. the high rating showed here is deceptive as well. (well, not if you're shoujo-manga reader who like it if the romance developed instantly and all of your expectations granted.) my word, do not read this manga if you expect well-thought character design, and reasonable story development. these things are my minimum requirement for read-worthy manga.

Horrendous translation

I can't honestly tell if this is good or bad, mostly because of the abysmal translation by JanimeS. The translator of the first five volumes has absolutely no idea what makes an English sentence sound right.

Thankfully, they drop it and it gets better afterwards, but having read most of the story in a haze of pseudo-yoda speak and blather, it's hard to give it any overall rating. That said, I suspect it isn't great - there's a lot of repetitiveness and the characters are fairly flimsy. It flips between comedy and angst fairly often, but it's always the same angst. The core themes are highly exaggerated and repeated again and again - hammered in.

It's okay for what it is though, I think. I'll follow the sequel and see if it lives up to any of the potential the premise has.

well when i first read the discription and rateing i was like"Sweet a demon queen falling in love with her sworn enemy this should be good"

i just started reading today and i was expecting a decent manga but....whaddya know it got worse and worse,i mean seriously i can understand a wicked demon toying with it's prey but for the relatinship to go that fast? and what that weak demon said was abit anti-cinematic seriously how the.... did this manga get a good rateing!
the ony reason why i didn't give this a one is because i've only read the first chapter and it's sucking sooooooooooo bad right now.

How did this get published exactly? I've seen better stuff on Smackjeeves for crying out loud.
The art is aright(albeit very mediocre) but the pacing and panel layout is a complete mess. The story is nothing but clichés and cheese.

I liked the beginning of this manga. However, after about volume 5, the artist decided to stop the plot line altogether and just add filler characters. Volume 9, the end of the series, resolved nothing, and the sequel has gone backwards. The art is decent, characters cliche, plot line in stasis, but overall I would recommend it. I just really wish the mangaka would DO something with it.

While I can't agree 100% with the hero's view either, I still like the series a lot. The art is pretty good though it can be hard to read during detailed scenes (though that's true with a lot of monochrome art). I was all set to write a more negative review due to the lack of an ending but having found out that it is continued under another name has made me happy again. I would like to see some more character development other than in the hero and Sira.

This manga is quite good but i dislike "hero" the main character. His ideals and philosophy is not something i'd follow nor agree with. Well art is good i like it. The storyline is just so-so. Relationship between characters is waaaay too fast, damn it. The heroine falls in love with the guy right in first chapter, what the hell?
