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...

Sira FTW!
I don't agree with the guys who says Sira's (Sheila's) character is unbelievable or confused.
As detached she is from everyone else (humans and monsters) because of her great powers, killing is just a way to solve problems to her, or even a game. In the human history we have seen many people doing things just as bad (slavery for example) while having a nice family life, going to church and such. It doesn't necessarily means they were all evil fanatics or sadists.

When Sira joins the Hero, while this is somewhat of a game to her at first, she also approves him as a worthy opponent and therefore as a being equal to her own. And because she is detached from everything else, it's natural he get's very important to her while the other humans and monsters are still only dead meat.

The Hero's character is much more ... if not fully unrealistic it's annoying. But we have seen many over-idealistic people like this already, Vash the Stampede form Trigun comes to mind, and I'd like to see what happens when he realizes who Sira really is.

The Art is sometimes great, but often confusing therefore i give it only a 9/10.

I don't really enjoy the art much - a bit too messy and the story style is a bit too typical and not very convincing me (to be honest sometimes I felt annoyed at the behaviour of the Demon Queen and the Hero as well)

It was good -- Good art, and fairly decent plot. I think the eyes are beutigul if not all pretty similar. Nice plot intersting in the way that Sheila and Hero were supposed to kill each other but can't for reason developing as the story progresses. And the fantasy isn't too bad. A lot of "morals" are in this manga which makes it a bit unoriginal in my opinion but the developments an pace of action is pretty good.

The new charcters we get intorduced to late on also make the story most interesting (the prince is such a cute child...), and did I mention that the eyes were amazing?

I'd reccommend it, definately.

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.

The plot isreally interesting and exciting I couldn't stop reading it until the end! the main characters Sheila and the hero Exa are very likeable and the have development, the side characters not sooo much though. The manga had a great mix of action, fantasy and romance. I loved it.

Absolutely spectacular.
It's the best manga I've read. Seriously.
This is the BEST adventure/monster/subtle-but-FANTASTIC-romance/fighting manga ever.
It uses BOTH the views of Sheila and the Hero. But the mangaka does it subtly, so the whole story is smooth and a great read.

* AMAZING ART. I DROOL OVER IT EVERYTIME. ^^ It's so pretty, and unique<33
* AMAZING CHARACTERS ( OMG. OMG. I LOVE THEM They're all so deep, and realistic csmile
*AMAZING PLOT LINE (CLICHE!?!? NEVER! biggrin This has so many twists, it's SO COOL )
* Absoluetely UNPREDICTABLE. (you'll hardly guess anything right. seriously. XD i never did)

It's just,... amazing.
o_o For those who gave it bad ratings, they're deprived.
Eh, to bad for them.


yes, YOU.



Really, the reason it got bad ratings was probably the fact that they couldn't take all the action.
o_o it is so good. It has literally EVERYTHING you could want in a manga.
Love, Sweet characters, badass characters, unpredictable ness, a plot line worth reading, deep characters, characters you thought you knew but ended up being like WHAT HOLLY SKDJFLS!?!, etc.

I could go on.
and on.
and on.

But I won't .
c: I'll just let you read it, and see how
awesome it is.

Have fun

R E A D I N G !!!! <####333 (cough cough * READ IT NOW * cough cough)

( Also, for those who finish these scans, look up Superior Cross. c: It's where the stories continues!!! *EEEK* (heh , and it's got all purrrrfect 10's ^^ I'd give this whole series a 19 biggrin! )

I really enjoy this manga, it turned out good even though it was supposed to be a short one...the only thing I don`t like is the fact that at the begging the relationship between Yuusha(hero) and Maou(demon lord) was being pushed to fast and after that it almost stopped, the main idea of the story changing(not a very much though)!
Anyway its a pretty good manga, thus I suggest you read it ^_^
