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...

I was expecting something good from the reviews but. Good enough, and the art is nice, but I don't even know how many stories I read with the exact same premise of "amazingly powerful and evil villain sees good in the world and promises loyalty to hero." Even with the slight variation in the main character being the villain, the queen is the generic manga-girl type with no real depth to her, with the added insult of the same generic backstory that's given to all characters of her subtype. =/

The manga is not bad, but probably worse--it was boring. No real emotional intensity and I never get the feeling that something is at stake. The pivotal relationship--between the demon queen and the hero--is nonexistant and shallow at best. If only I'd known ahead of time to turn off my brain a little more. Guess this'll show me to trust reviews here.

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.

the story isnt like those super psychological ones which u requires tons of thinkin and then after readin a few volumes.... u get tired and decided to read something else for a moment..... nor is it those superhero story where the good guys defeat the evil guys and the heros never die.... hence, it a pretty relaxin and is good... (tho i still prefer psychological best)

the artstyle is more of a shoujo style... yet.... it does not have what i hate about shoujo art -- the super god damn no color.....its all so white with shitty backgrounds. therefore, the art is awesome too.... the coloring especially... is very detailed and are on the top level...

i finished all the way up till the 7th volume 1st chapter - part 1 in a few hours since you will not get tired of readin it because it does not require too much of thinking from your mind.... just go with the flow.... and it might be predictable... but still interestin...

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.

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.

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! )
