Synopsis

Yuri Shibuya was living a pretty normal life. That changed the day he was dunked into a toilet after an attempt to save a classmate from a gang of bullies. Instead of just getting a good soaking, he's pulled in. The next thing he knows, he's in a world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe. If that's not odd enough, he's told that he is to be the next Maoh, just because he has black hair and black eyes. The Maoh is the King of the Mazoku, who are coexisting not-so-peacefully with the humans in this world. Much to his subjects' dismay, he's totally different from the rulers they're accustomed to. He's kind, considerate, a believer in justice, and not willing to use violence to solve conflicts. Not exactly someone they want running a country on the very brink of war. Now, Yuri has to deal with trying to become a good Maoh, while at the same time attempting to adapt to this lands' customs and culture, all in a world where the tension between the humans and Mazoku is reaching its peak.

My initial reason for starting Kyou Kara Maou! was the shounen-ai premise (boy is transported—or rather, flushed down a toilet—to another world where the laws are extremely different and ends up accidentally proposing to one of the Maou's sons; sounds like fun to me!) and I became a little disappointed when I realized it wasn't a strictly shounen-ai anime, or even one that focused largely on romance, but after only a handful of episodes I was addicted to the humour and characters and there was absolutely no return.

Kyou Kara Maou! is a truly hilarious anime, and it's filled with so many great characters that it's read more

I have to say - it took me almost three months to watch the whole thing. I had the first season on DVD, and I had to watch most of the second season on youtube since I only acquired a fansub recently. It was worth the wait. What will I do now? No more Kyo Kara Maoh! for me?

Let's start with the story. I think the first episode usually defines how a series will go. I was laughing my pants off the first episode alone, and it was like that for most of the series. I really liked the concept - it did remind me read more

First of all "Kyou Kara Maou!" or "God Save our King!" is a very orginal and interesting anime.

There exists two worlds the Demon World and the Normal World. On the Normal world, magic doesnt seem to exist Demons hide themselves amongst the normal population, and live as normal humans.

One such Demon is Yuri Shibuya, a normal boy who loves baseball and has a kind heart. Through strange occurance he is dropped into the Demon world, where he becomes the new Demon king. Because 'Double Blacks' or people with Black Hair and Eyes are considered royalty are are exteremly rare in the Demon world.

If you want to marathon a long anime and you don't like shounen-ai style anime, DO NOT START HERE! Hehe. If anyone knows me at all, you know darn well how much I dislike shounen-ai, and this show has it in spades. There is even a "reverse harem" for the main character. But its not hard core boy love like most come to associate with an anime labeled with "shounen-ai" its very mild and as such, isn't really that bad to watch for anyone who enjoys a decent adventure/shounen anime. The story evolves around a teenage boy named Yuri Shibuya. He's a normal teenage boy read more

Recommendations

these two are similarly enjoyable to watch, they both have: love, magic, another world, fighting, humor etc

Almost the same exact story. The only real difference is that the main character is a guy in Kyou kara Maou and a girl in Juuni Kokuki. If you loved one then you'll surly love the other.
Does this website remind anyone of facebook or is it just me?

Anyways...
If you like the reverse harem thing and you wouldn't mind it so much if Haruhi were actually a boy...I guess this series would be for you. This series doesn't quite reach Ouran's height in brilliant characterizations or comedic wit but it does have its charms.
boy gets sucked into another world full of magical things, both anime is a good comedy

There's that one boy who until recently has been living a normal life, but is suddenly teleportated into another world. At first everything is messed up, but after awhile he gets used to the new life. The thing is that apparently he is the chosen one to get rid of the evil that's hiding in the shadows. But all is well when it ends well! In both Kyo Kara Maoh! and Amatsuki we see the development of the lead male characters who are destined to bring peace and prosperity to the other world they suddenly appear in.
Cure and funny, KKM is much lighter, while JR is much straight forward about the relationships between characters
