The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The Demon Queen however argues that this war has made the human society band together as one and showed empirical evidence how it has increased population, increased production, boosted economy and improved society overall. Furthermore, she explains to the Hero that ending this war will result in a civil war that will produce more bloodshed than there ever was. The Hero, convinced that the only way to bring peace, relatively speaking, is to join forces with the Demon Queen, agrees to help with her plans!

Is this still alive?  It feels like forever since we got another chapter...



Sounds like this maid is unfamiliar with gap moe.

Sorry for asking this,but what are the differences here(if any)from the anime? 

Where does it pick up where the anime left off?

Should I go from 1 to current or can the other stuff be glossed over?

You really should read the entire thing again, this is so much better than the anime. The art is just incredible, and they left quite a lot out to fit into the 12 episodes. Technically, the anime goes up untill ch.23 , but seriously, read from the beginning.

Haha, Maoyuu is actually being published in Germany, and at this pace it'll propably catch up at some point. Did not expect that to ever happen.

rofl After reading that intro up there, I'm sold! Now I have to read this, as well as the light novel. xD *puts it into favorites*

Im enjoying how rooted in the real world this series is. everything from economy to the recent gunstuff is very impressive, not to mention the ideals and beliefs appearing too.


Thousands of years of economic and political advances are thrown into a society in a period of 2-3 years. It's actually quite silly. And the economic theory is still theory, in the real world it has never gone that easily. Futures contracts are indeed pretty old, but they weren't handled that way in the past, the author is using a more modern approach which couldn't have worked with technological, travel and political constraints of the era setting.


That being said, it's still a very good read and I like it. I've gone a few years from reading it last and have recently begun catching up. Each chapter has a lot of material and has a good mix of pacing, backstory, characters, action and dialogue. It maintains enough of the fantasy setting to be viable in that genre while adding all these extra things you mention.


I read from 13-25 and will finish 26-33 to catch up when I get a little time. I had read 1-12 years ago. I think this manga is one that is better savored slowly and not rushed through.

I like this alot. The best part about this is that since no one has a name but instead identifies by title I end up thinking they're all rappers getting that money. 

Be mine hero, I refuse.
How we develop our geopolitics skills and discuss the lessons so far in context of the bigger story.

Seriously, the other 5 manga do not have the depth of discussion that this one does.
I am proud of all of you~



1) I think he was seen as a threat as well as naive - which is why they used him for both morale and as a scapegoat to fight entire demon mass. You should also take in mind that there are no newspapers so no one would know how strong he is other than those that has seen first hand. The top brass sitting arrogantly on their throne probably brushes the 'he is strong as an army' as a rumor - who knows just a suggestion.


Either ways the hero's story has only been opened in the latest chapter by the demon queens question on her thought on how strong he actually is. So u gonna have to wait on explanations about him.


2) Education was not even promoted yet. Commoners and slaves are too busy trying to stay alive.

Sages are too busy studying on their own interests and keep in mind it takes a few years to reach a bullet level.

Its easier to make something than to make someone.

Aristocrats/ lords/ mayors/ etc. would probably be too busy with their paper works and trying to hog more money or make their town/ city more profitable.

Those with knowledge on magic are probably rare - who knows... but this makes finding someone with healing knowledge even harder to find.


I believe that before magic progression people would naturally be more comfortable to science progression since science is natural. Once they have sufficient knowledge on the world then they can proceed with magical progression. And as you can see their science isn't sufficient enough...


Since this manga isn't about magic MAYBE they will explain sooner or later but yeah before healing - I think its about how magic works first... but only maybe


3) The demon queen and maid are a rare type of demons apparently (if I remember correctly, its been a while since I've read, just came to visit) and this one is clear - she is older than the hero since she has known about him since he was a baby... and she was looking the same as the current age - who knows how old she is...

But what you say about the demons being basically like humans - remember there isn't even demons and humans to begin with ... they all just grouped each side on their own and accepts the name apparently. Its more like underground dwellers and above ground citizens. The underground dwellers only welcomes the ones living underground as one of them though - but yeah if you've read up to the latest chapter you would see that they accepted the humans as a part of the demon clans meeting.


For 3 I must say though have you been reading properly?


Interbreeding in the latest chapters was clarified...possible

Some issues I have with this series. I don't agree with many of its economical ideas but that can be a complicated issue so I won't get into it. For the more simple issues:


1) The Hero seems to be able to obliterate entire armies and clans by himself, without breaking a sweat. Together with his teleportation magic, why didn't he just teleport from war-fronts to war-fronts and obliterated the demon army? He could had also easily rally followers and take over the whole damn world. I know he's a god damn saint so he won't do it but you would think the top brass would see him as a great potential threat.


2) This healing magic. I don't know the full extent and limits of healing magic in this series but even if it just heals flesh wound, it would still be incredibly useful in and out of war. Yet you never ever see it used. Also, even if their society is hugely rule by religion, you would think there would still be some people who would be interested in researching and developing the mechanics behind this form of magic.


3) Why is that many of the demons seem more closely related to humans than they are to each other? For example, what is so "demon" about the Demon Queen and her maid? THEY'RE PRACTICALLY HUMAN. Also, in the similar manner of how different demons are grouped into clans due to their relatedness, the humans are basically one huge gigantic clan that rivals all the other clans put together. So humans are just one big powerful clan who thinks they're too special to tolerate all the other clans. The humans don't even have ethnic groups, they're all just whites.


This brings me to the theory that all demons used to be human. For whatever reasons, some humans started to change shape so the other humans chased them out and they formed their own clans. Since they were small compare to the original humans, they banded together to fight the human's oppression. For the original humans, you were either human or you weren't, the details don't matter; you were either a human or a demon.


Which brings me to another issue, interbreeding. Can humans and demons interbreed or is it by a clan by clan basis (with humans just being one clan)? We see from Gateway City that the human soldiers were forcing human-looking demons to have sex with them and I imagine the demon soldiers are doing similar things on Aurora Island. Even before the war, you would think there would still be some human-demon interactions. Surely its possible since the two leads are 99.999% likely to be reproductively compatible. Yet you never see a half-breed anywhere. Personally, I think demon dick in human pussy is much more interesting but since this series is catered towards male and their fantasies of sexual dominance, the opposite is much more likely to happen.

We'll just have to wait and see if Demon Queen comes up with cannon to blow away the enemy musketeers.

Major Spoiler don't read  :)



Maybe the author used the human world for the realistic scenarios of politics and warfare, and the demon world is filled with the "What If's" when you consider how those functions would play out in a fantasy world where magic and over-powered individuals have precedence. 

Oh my god this chapter...



Dragon Princess... I am sad ;_;

But such is the way of this world... there is duality in everything... black and white, happiness and sadness...

England. burned as witch. NO. Unless, of course you mean their corpses. which were cremated and scattered. English witches (including those in the colonies) were hung. live witch burnings, by flaming stake, happened in Denmark, France, and the Holy Roman Empire.

Okay. Burned for heresy. Happy now?

Besides, her execution DID happen in France. The part controlled by England.

Well, you know, if nothing, it beats being burned as a witch by the English by miles.

This chapter just screamed character development in all angles. Grand princess nailed it so well I was nearly brought to tears. Said tears were brought on by what followed T^T 


Great chapter and that last page really hit me. Keeps reminding how awesome the LNs or rather Mamare-sensei really is for being able to do so well with balancing complex themes with the usual ones. I really wish I could get my hands on the LNs but this manga handles explanations and depth really well so I don't think too much is missed. 

something's been bothering me for a while but are those Matchlock or Flintlock?


Flintlock, and as they are muskets (not rifles) expect accuracy to be "broadside of barn" at 50 yards.


As far as I see it, magic is actually pretty underpowered and rare. We are just following the stories of the few individuals who can use it on an actual mass scale. I doubt you can count even a dozen of comparable magicians on both sides that have not been introduced already.


Hero/Demon Queen are part of the "magic system" itself, probably, being the shining beacons for both sides. One of a kind, as in: there literally CAN'T exist two Heroes. Touched by God, if you wish. I'd love a good explanation of the Light and the past warlords. Anyway, we can not count these two at all, as they are on another level.


Who else can use magic on a tactical scale? Probably just Female Magician, and that only with insane amount of prep time. What had I to say now to count as a true nerd? Ah, yeah, Batman.


Thus, I doubt we will see weather manipulation. It'd kind of go against the messages of this series if Hero and Demon Queen just swoop in and save the Three Kingdoms. I vote for better rifles (some history nerd fill in a possible alternate design that DQ could have chosen) and fast adaptation of the military tactics to a musket-wielding opponent. Oh, and, of course, given some time, the Russian Winter yet again. It's Napoleon's bane, after all.


Speaking of Napoleon, I vote that Big Sis Maid will expose one of her breasts at some point, standing atop a pile of bodies.

Well, you know, if nothing, it beats being burned as a witch by the English by miles. Japan has an unhealthy obsession with Joan of Arc anyway, I still haven't seen a good portrayal up to now. After all, 44 episodes are a little too much for me, I have to finish Precure first before starting it. (and finishing Precure is something I've been doing for the past two years)

We're going to have a new name for Big Sis Maid soon, wonder what she is going to call herself.


Also, would have been nice if Hero had taught the teleportation spell.  Female Knight might have ended up teaching her the healing spell, so that could be good. 

The teleportation spell of hero is allmighty, not even female magician can replicate it with he's speed. And the healing spell is somewhat special. so its more of their circumstances being what lets them have those abilities.


And Big SIs Maid is trying to find out something special to help them. It can be anything... But I believe it would be under the lines of information and goodwill.

I'm both sad and glad to see one part of the harem go, but in the end this is better for her character and more realistic than the endless baterring against a brick wall the girls have to do in standard harem mangas. Well done Author.


Wonder if the Maid is going to go to where she was a serf?

She just might go there in her travel, I have a feeling she's going out to "see the world" and try to find ways to "improve the lives of the lowly insects like she once was".  She played a major role in the mass exodus of refugees from other countries (aside from price inflation) into the winter nations.  She was no different from those refugees, I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up being like head maid to some of them. 


There doesn't seem to be gender discrimination, so I wouldn't be surprised if she somehow ended up bringing about universal suffrage after her emancipation speech.  I can see her as a the head of the first NGO in their world since she's went from insect/serf -> maid -> accountant -> philospher -> swordswoman -> jack of all trade.  If she gets her little sister to help with fundraiser, it's GG.  You KNOW lil sis maid would be making ridiculously good food that will sway people.  Can you imagine if she introduce cold (well stored) beer to their world?  I'm surprised she isn't kidnapped yet by a royal/noble, she is already a royal artisan (forgot the english term, had to use the kanji term, the winter nation king requested her to sell directly to the the royal household).

Blergh, way to date down princess =D

I disagree. She's better off getting away from the guy that's been engaged for years and only made it to 1st base.
