After a long and treacherous journey, our Hero finally arrives at the Dark Lady's castle only to find himself being asked for help. The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The queen of demons 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 Dark Lady, agrees to help with her plans!

English is not my main language so there might be some mistakes ... however :
I have only read 11 chapters so far...

After having read the synopsis , you may think '' yay another shounen adventure with a kind guy and a big breasted girl , who gonna fall in love and safe the world...'' . That's definitely wrong. The story is very complex ... in my opinion (i may be the only one who thinks like that). It's more about economy and the reasons and consequences of war between humans and demons.

You may think now , '' but in the description,it says : action,adventure,... '' read more

Manga: Ookami to Koushinryou
Hard not to compare these two. In both super-intelligent heroines outsmart their respective male companions as they travel. Along the way, lessons on economics are given - in S&W through trading chatter and in Maoyuu through Demon Queen actually teaching Hero how war can be beneficial, as well as sharing with other lowly humans the wonders of potatoes.

The chemistry shared between Horo and Lawrence in S&W is mostly absent in Maoyuu; jokes instead being made about Demon Queen's large (and much-too-exposed) breasts; oft described as "useless meat". Hero intentionally being a clone of white knight JRPG leads doesn't help matters. It's still amusing  read more

Hero vs Demon Queen.

Throw in romance into the mix and complications develop.
Both very similar in genre and great read.

Both have the outsider character introducing ideas that are known to modern times but are considered revolutionary during their eras.

Manga: Mahoutsukai no Yome
The setting of both series is a fantasy world where there are unimaginable possibilities. Among its most interesting aspects are the existence of non-human beings. In fact, one of the main characters from both series possesses attributes that are more associated with a demon. The core of both series focuses on a human and non-human's relationship as we see how much they learn from each other. Both series also has mystery especially in regards with their world fiction elements.

Manga: Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Set in a fantasy world, both series takes a rather unique approach at fantasy fiction. The main female characters has strong wills and unique skills that makes them stand out with their roles. Both series has a lot of focus on relationship dynamics. For Maoyuu, there's a bit of politics that is added to the mix while Akagami no Shirayuki-hime revolves with shoujo themes. As their story develops, we learn much more about their world, the roles of the characters, and their purpose.

Manga: Hataraku Maou-sama!
In some ways, I found these two series a bit similar.

Both manga involves fantasy themes such as Demon King and Hero.

Both manga series has a ton of comedy, drama, and humorous dialogues that are sometimes over exaggerated in context focused on the events happening throughout each chapters.

Both manga also has a lighthearted mood/setting.
