The first 3 mins was tense. But alas then it turned into a comedy.

It seems it's currently a trend to feature Maou and Yuusha in anime. Wonder which Maou will win popularity-wise.

An introductory episode. I expect to see more about reality of doing part-time job and contract work in later episodes (of course in a sort of comedy setting).
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

OMG I love it!! Much funnier than I thought! The animation is really good, and at first I didn't like the character designs too much, but when I got to see them in action they felt actually just right!

Also, I think it's a very nice touch to have them start off speaking another language. It gives off a nice "other world" feel, and it provided a few good laughs, too!

Very funny, my smirk didn't fade until the episode ended. The way they threw random words of other actual languages into their made up language was very funny, especially if you understand Japanese (how foreign words are transliterated/pronounced in a syllabary language).
Liked the bit when the police walked up to them and thought they were just some foreigners...
Animation is splendid as expected of WHITE FOX (reminds me of the Rewrite OP).

Liked the seriousness in the beginning, then became comedy when they came to earth.

Looking good so far.

I really liked how the episode started out very serious and intense with all the demon generals attacking the islands but ended up being a hilarious comedy. The fights in the beginning were amazing though; White Fox's animation never disappoints. I laughed so hard at the demon's language; it's pretty much gibberish. xD So now Maou works at MgRonald LOL! I liked how an earthquake occurred and the characters weren't even worried. So the the red-haired chick is Emilia the hero that attacked Maou! Oh man I'm looking forward to more episodes. :D
Also while watching the episode I kept thinking about Maoyu X Chuunibyou. xD

I actually found this anime quite appetizing. The first half of the episode was awesome. I'm a huge action/comedy kind of person. The whole thing is right up my alley in a way.

Anyone that loves comedy anime, give it a try. Lots of good laughs in the first episode, not to mention a plot twist right at the end.

I like the anime it looks like it's going to be good BUT I kinda wished the anime was fully based on how it was in the beginning because it was really badass and so was the animation/music. Am I the only one that feels that way lol?

One of the better premieres for a comedy I've seen in a while. The writing was snappy and the characters play off of each other well. Hope the source is able to keep the laughs up for the rest of the show.

It was pretty amusing trying to see a Demon King adjusting to Earth in the first half with his refined demeanor only to be crass and a little on the goofy side in the second half. Hard to believe that's the same character.

Wow, my surprise of the season came early this time around. Then again, Kotoura-san... maybe I'll reserve judgement on that position for now.

Still, great first episode.

Great first episode! I loved the way they adapted it into an anime c:

The first few minutes were filled with action packed scenes of epic proportion and then it spiraled into a hilarious comedy :D

I will surely be looking forward to watching this every week

I don't think the manga had that much action in the beginning! Pretty sure this was only the first chapter too. Hope it doesn't end too soon.

That gibberish language made me hear some pretty strange things...
But anyways, seems like it will be a decent comedy, definitely better than what I was expecting.

This anime really impressed me. I found myself thoroughly entertained with this episode and I can't wait to see what happens next. This series looks like it will be a lot of fun!

Just on a side note, I think it's interesting how for two seasons now we've had anime featuring a demon king and a hero diverge from the presumed action genre, and take on a more comedic slice-of-life type feel. Maybe this is some kind of new category they wish to develop, kinda like how for the past few years they've kept on cranking out shows based on the Sengoku era! lol.

Totally agree! I laughed so hard so many times in this episode XD Seriously, the comedy is great. This is even better than reading the manga, because you actually get to hear their weird language. The opening sequence was also very well done, though I suspect that's probably the only real action we'll be seeing. The ED has a very nice and sentimental feel to it. This is definitely something I'll be highly looking forward to every week ^^

The endless debate between fans and haters. At one point, after spending a lot of time on MAL, you just realize it's totally pointless.

I was actually disappointed in the beginning with the action-filled scenes. It didn't really capture my attention but luckily the atmosphere changed. I love the idea of those two being in the human world and of course the funny moments. 5/5

I kept trying to figure out what language they were speaking only to learn it was made up maouspeak... sneaky anime.

Also Supersize Me has to be one of the most obscure references I've ever heard an anime make.

It has more serious moments then I expected.
I don't remember the novel having so much serious moments until the latter chapters. I hope the anime will continue to be low on fan service like the original series is.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it was comedy at first with that epic opening.

And please yes if that is the current trend. I've wanted this kind of fantasy/adventure kind of stuff for ages. Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and this anime wasn't what I expected it to be at first, but they are amazing enough that I can rewatch them. I rarely do this for other animes.

Thought I was watching the wrong show for the first few minutes, but this was really funny. Really hope it continues to stay this way. This is labelled a romance so I'm pretty eager to see how they incorporate it in.

Well, that was a great episode. The demon lord work at Mcdonald lol. How did they suddenly know how to speak Japanese btw?

Funny how the Demon Lord isn't heartless and lend a girl his umbrella. Turn out that girl is the hero that tried to slay him. What a twist.

I don't find it strange at all that the Dark Lord works at MgRonalds, but I thought he would probably be in upper management.

I'm sure he'll make it up there one day due to his dedication, hard work and great observation skill as observed in the episode lol
