Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist episode 1 [First Impression] : Science never fails

Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist hell

This show is about a scientifically inclined noble of great lineage who suddenly is confronted by the sigh of a vampire in his basement. He learns that he is a descendant of Solomon and that he is the elector that will decide who the next stands-in for Master of hell will be. This show is a fantasy/action show that has a lot of implied boy love, bishie and school life element. At first sight it seems like a great show for people who are in that sort of things and it reminds me of Kuroshitsuji in terms of tone and setting, just not as dark.

I’m not sure I really like the fact that the main character claims to be so scientifically inclined, science isn’t all about number. Science is the art of both theories and observation. It is not because you experience something like demons and magic that it cannot be because of science, in fact, it would actually be much more interesting for scientific to discover such thing. Science is about understanding what we observe, if we observe something that contradict what we already know, we simply change our theories to accommodate for this change. If supernatural events like those would exist, scientific theories would be made to accommodate for them and to further our knowledge of the world. I feel like it is things like this that make science look dumb and like a cult more than what it is…a way of live and furthering human curiosity and understanding, fulfilling our quest for knowledge.

Going beyond that little thing, the characters were really interesting and since they pull their characters with personality of legendary people, it makes things even the more interesting. Everyone heard of Solomon, Dantalion and Gille de Rais, and if you haven’t already I suggest you go read some about them, they are very fascinating stories: Click here.  The story up to now as been nearly perfectly identical to what we know about Solomon and it follows those story pretty well. Now the question is, how will the go show from here?

It is one thing to have all this battle for hell and to see who will control it, but from the look of things Dantalion will now become a classmate of Solomon’s heir and they will hang out together quite a bit. From the look of it this could easily turn into a school life show more than anything else and I wouldn’t be surprised if the show turned to shit after just a short while. After all we are in the summer season and in this time of the year everything has a tendency to be quite weak when it comes to their story…so we’ll see.

Personally I might watch this show if I have the time, but I won’t blog it, although I do recommend it for the bishie fans out there as it seems like this could be just the kind of show for you if Free wasn’t enough already.

Edit: Myst will be taking over this show and will be blogging it here on 0-Gate.
