Makes the same mistakes as the prequel

So i finished Superior †. and due the fact it being overall shorter as well as the fact the cat was out of the bag. I feel like this series was slightly better than its prequel. However the author at the same makes the same mistakes. Again i enjoyed the first volume despite it basically being a recap of the series. I think the author once again did very well in establishing the world. But beyond that i think the author made the same mistakes once again. With Poor execution. This time however i did think that some of the characters outside of the main 4 were better written specifically 2 of the villains. the action in the last half of volume 4 and the first half of volume 5 was actually exciting. In the end i think the author does a good job here and there but with the ending i just can't see this being a must read. I get the hype for this series but the execution is too weak for me to fully enjoy it.

6/10. Fun at times

I Loved It, But...

the ending left me REALLY dissatisfied! I really enjoyed how
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
none of the main characters died. There was a close call for Lakshri in either Superior or Superior Cross (read them back to back so I can't differentiate which was which except for the obvious plot points) that got me panicking, but it all turned out okay in the end haha.
I enjoyed the entirety of the story, if only it weren't for the ending! Ugh.

I can think of so many better ways to have ended it. If Sheila had come out of the space or whatever and then we'd seen a flash-forward to the future, I would have loved it about a million times better.
This is my first shounen ever, so I was a bit hesitant, but I actually really enjoyed it.

A very pretty disappointment

The art is really great, in spite all I say below and me giving this series 6, if someone rescanned this series with truly HQ scans, I would read it again, for the art. The covers in themselves deserve significant praise, and are worth more than the series itself as a whole.

To go into detail, the characters, were all very likable and fun, with an interesting premise, so the potential was there, but the story never delivered. The translation was pretty bad, so maybe the actual story is better, but what we English readers get is a pretty childish, repetitive and horribly paced story.
The moral statements were done so poorly it was a little insulting.
Too bad.

I really hope this author collaborates with a good writer, then we would really have something going.

Well it was a bit darker then the first one (which I like), and the artistry perfectly beautiful; even when it's ugly. But it felt like it needed more fighting then just a show of violence.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
it starts off in the same Journey. While things start to be more obvious that Sheila is the demon lord.. But I felt the hero was acting stupidly about it. I also felt like there wasn't enough fighting to make the story pop. Just straight violence of one person or another getting canned. And this epic demon lord seemed boring in the end. At least they found each other in the end. To be continued maybe???

The manga was a bit more serious than the first series but well worth the read. Things get better, more action, twists, and to top it off it has a happy ending. If you read the first series you have no choice but to read the second because you will need closure biggrin The only warning I will give is this one ends like most romance manga released today which is conclusive, happy ending

however my gripe is the happy ending comes in the final chapter.

M E H.... Overrated

I totally agree with Paragoge's review.
The story was promising, the characters were too, I mean the Hero and the Maou fall in love throughout the story, they help each other and whatnot. However the story twists were regular.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I mean, there was a Copy already, now we need a Copy N2, really...? Shiela confessing in tears was totally legit and well placed and kind of liked it how it was placed.

Also, last chapter.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Hero gets Shiela back, Third is OK with dying and willing to give up her life for Shiela but NOOOOOO she gets to live too. Really!? Plus, NO Vanilla ending? I mean, ever since we started reading Chapter 1 of Superior we knew that there was going to be a kiss, Troll Author wins.

One of the top Overrated Manga in the History of the Universe.

2nd Season...

I liked this one, but you have to read a few volumes in before you really get back onto the plot line of the previous season. If this story had just kept going and didn't have the break between the two, I would've scored it higher.
Over all the plott is really good and I love the character growth!

...and yes, it is enjoyable. The art is beautiful, the story is decent (though easily predictable) and it leaves you with deeper thoughts sometimes... just don't expect something insanely deep or anything: you'll be disappointed. Especially with the ending.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Which, as others wrote before me, is really bad. Copy was a good big bad material and certainly didn't deserve to be just suddenly replaced by some insane pretty-guy-or-whatever-thing without any build-up, backstory or anything.

Started out better, still awesome though

Soooo so unbelievably silly, soo cliche, soo shoujo in all the worst ways... LOVE IT. lol.

Somewhat of a parody of rpgs/fantasy/shoujo/bishies. Don't take it too seriously.

Sappier and less believable than the first half, still a guilty pleasure though.

PS how the heck is this shounen? female lead, crowd of bishies, shoujo art, barrels of sappyconfused hello-oo, ring any bells?

(This is a review of both Superior and Superior Cross)

In the beginning, I liked Superior. It was cute in that it was like an RPG with a party that included a hero, the hero's right-hand swordsman, and a mage (and later, an assassin-type) all out to destroy the Maou. And I liked how it handled Shiela's fear of the inevitable day when the hero realizes that she's the enemy, and how desperate she is to keep her identity secret. I looked forward to how Exa and the others would react upon learning that Shiela was the Big Bad they were out to kill.

But when Exa finally found out... let's just say I was not impressed.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
What happened to all that angsting you did, and your final conviction to believe in the Shiela that you know & love? You just suddenly throw all of this away in your rage, even though Shiela told the truth while apologizing & in tears, moments before she went and tried to sacrifice her life to save yours? :/ Ok, I guess it's understandable considering you've hated the Maou for a long time (she did kill your parents and decimated your entire hometown, not to mention half the world's population), and you feel betrayed and stuff, but then you suddenly turn around and are not mad anymore? Wait what???

I also found the ending rushed, and didn't make a whole lot of sense (or maybe that was just the scanlation).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I don't understand why the mangaka had to create this Original Maou character. There's Copy and Third already, why make Shiela a clone too? >>; It would have been better if the author had stuck with Shiela being the original and just prolonged the Exa vs. Shiela fight, delving more into their emotions, Exa especially. The scenes would have been more heart-wrenching, and the eventual acceptance, forgiveness, and 'I still love you' moment would have been more awwww-inducing.

All in all, it started out pretty good, but devolved into a rushed, mediocre manga that left much to be desired.
