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...

A pretty well made manga. I'm starting to be very critical of manga and anime now.. sigh... ( I read too much manga ). There can be improvements in some areas, but I say well made and keeps my attention. I'll say it would be a good read. I seen better, but I seen way worse.

Maybe I came in with unreasonable expectations, but this manga received a lot of good reviews, so I assumed it'd be at least decent. Honestly, there's nothing special about it, and the romance was lukewarm at best. It tries to incorporate some fantasy elements, but it didn't do much for the characters or the plot. Everything about this manga just seemed very stale, and it feels like the same old shoujo characters superimposed in a fantasy environment. That being said, there's nothing terrible in this manga, and it doesn't particularly offend me, so I think it's a solid 5.
I guess I would recommend this to people who're really into both fantasy and shoujo, but all in all, I think this is a skip.

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.

Wow, I'm surprised I even remembered I read this. The idea is pretty good, but the art and the storyline are so hectic, you just want to get through one chapter without feeling totally confused, and then it feels as though you've accomplished something. I usually look at mangas and ask myself if I would like them as animes as well, and this story is so NOT something I would even bother watching. You have been forewarned. I really can't even believe peopel spent hours of labor scanlating this.

I honestly don't understand why this is so popular. I admit I kind of like the main demon female, despite being an inconsistent character, but the story is so rushed and (even thought it's drawn well) the panels are just not placed in a very coherent order. The plot is boring, predictable, and cliche. Oh yeah and the main male lead is an angsty idiot. Some hero he'll turn out to be.

...but for mostly the wrong reasons I'm afraid. Firstly though, a mention of the artwork, It's maybe as someone else said - a little 'messy' in that it can be hard to define the forms sometimes, but the sense of style is really excellent, and as soon as you see one of the color panels, you realize what a talented artist Ichtys is. For the story and characters though, it's another matter. I've read around 150 pages of this and have seen one stereotype after another in a totally cliched tale of good redeeming bad, with the exception of the Demon Queen, who is just completely unbelievable - her behavior makes bipolar disorder look like a slight mood change. The combination of heinous mass-murderer and cutesy wuv-struck self-improver was just so wrong it was where the laughter started I'm sorry to say. I hate dropping a title, but this is one of those I'll just have to.

The art style is kinda annoying, abit old fashioned and unrefined as far as I'm reading right now. (Perhaps it improves in later volumes?) The hero is annoying in his single mindedness and his overoptimism. It gets a bit tiresome how many times he speaks of his belief that "everyone whether monsters or humans should live happily together ever after yay." even when he's in the middle of a battle where hundreds of humans are being killed around him by monsters. I get that that's your personal believe but think of the timing before splurting that out geez. The story fluctuates between being relatively enjoyable to damn annoying (mostly due to the hero's actions and words) and I guess the only real reason i'm reading it now is cos my other mangas are slow to update.

Really, really good manga. The beginning is great, i couldn't stop to admire the art(All main characters, mostly Sira's). Plot is exellent, I really like it very much.
So You just should read it! ^_~

Spoiler (highlight to view)
"I'd like to see what happens when he realizes who Sira really is" (L3zl13)
Me too, this's very interesting. But I think he won't do anything to harm Sira, because up to this moment she'll completly change her mind, just like the King said. I really believe in this, i want Sira to be happy, maybe with Ekusa. ^_^ And i don't like when she thinks about "one day I have to kill the Hero"...

"I mean if the trouble is the demon lord then all they basically have to do is change her mind right?? then again they make it seem quite impossible and that the demon lord MUST be killed"
Oh, c'mon, just remember Ekusa's memories about the Demon Lord. He thinks than she doesn't feel anything when killing people or monsters. That's because he thinks she is only one monster he needs to kill. Sira'd been like this just before she met the Hero, but she's changing her mind now because of him. Hero's opening her eyes on the beauty of the world where everyone human or monster are happy. So she isn't that girl anymore...
That's why i think she won't kill Ekusa as he won't kill her. I want happy end, that's all smile

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.
