SynopsisAfter 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,... '' . Well... the autors tried to get action and shounen feeling (with comedy, heroic moments and scenes from the frontline of the battlefield) into the manga.But still...you could say some of the action was replaced with war.I know it sounds strange,but you will understand after you've read it ( well... i hope so ).
The main thing that keeped me reading the story was the fact was the idea behind it. It doesn't really matters if you are demon or human, economy and war are still 2 big factors of living.
(of course the second reason would be : i love romances, and especially good guy x bad girl *grrr*)
But in the end , i can say everything was fair and i could enjoy it.The art was really good. I would recommend this manga to those who want to read something like 'Spice and Wolf' with a bit more action but the same romance ;).
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 to watch the two interact... just not with the same wordplay goodness in S&W.
Both series heavily feature economics, and both economies are of similar setting (villages and farms).
The dynamic between Hero and Demon Queen is similar to the dynamic between Lawrence and Holo/Horo, though Hero doesn't have a formal education thus must follow along as opposed to offering his own opinion like Lawrence.
There is banter in both, and lots of dialogue.
When it comes to book knowledge of economics, Demon Queen is ahead (Holo/Horo has a more "street smarts" approach. Lawrence goes by the book).
When it comes to interpersonal matters, Holo/Horo has more experience (Demon Queen is very naive when it comes to romantic relationships).
Same general feel, both really good.
Hero vs Demon Queen.
Throw in romance into the mix and complications develop.
Both very similar in genre and great read.
These two are a LOT alike, in a weird way. Both are about a hero and a demon queen.
Both series have a plot that involves the hero working together with the demon queen (they even use the same terms!).
The heroes shares the same compassionate, laid-back attitude.
Though, Superior has much more emphasis on action/adventure, while Maoyuu throws in "interesting economics talk" about how war can actually help the society to grow.
