It seems that I misjudges this show a little bit in my initial review, it appears that the show has greater weight than the Demon King’s huge boobs. While I still find the art not really to my taste, the story and content itself of the show is really impressive. Considering the ecchi and humorous opening of the season for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha, I don’t think I can be put to blame to be surprised of the rich moral content of the show.
This episode there was a lot of talk about agriculture. It is true that in medieval time the 3 step system was used to increase agricultural output. It is kind of funny how the demon in the show seems to be at a scientific and technological level more akin to ours, while the humans still seems to be living in the 12th century. Another thing that is picking my curiosity is the reason why the hero and the demon king are venturing into the human world to help them, but they don’t seem to plan to go to the demon world. Is it because the demon world is perfect? I highly doubt it, there wouldn’t be war otherwise. Is it only because the demon world will be a future stop and the humans are only the first one they started with? I guess it might be more of this than of my original proposition, but I’m still curious to find out.
Meanwhile, the Hero also raised an important point, what is someone worth when he isn’t good neither with his head or his hands? The Hero cannot work the land, he can’t think or teach either, so what good is he in this world? He was the best fighter, that was his purpose, but now that he has nothing to fight against, what will become of him? I must say that for a hero he is playing the role of male slave really easily to please the Queen, I find it a little ironic that the big hero who wanted to win for the human race is now so submissive in front of the one person he was trying to kill from the beginning.
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to endure so much goody moral for a whole season, we’ll have to see, I would rather see evil maniac than angels, but this episode was interesting and fun and I have nothing to complain about really. I hope future episode will be in a similar fashion…maybe a little bit of ecchi here and there wouldn’t hurt either…I can dream can’t I?
