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.
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.
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.
Both stories incorporate a fantasy setting where there are demons, heroes, and magic involved, but they are both a bit different from regular hero stories in that they talk about somewhat complex ideas like whether defeating the demon lord will actually bring about peace. While Maoyuu tends to talk about trade and economics and their effect on nations; Mismarca uses diplomacy and negotation to communicate complex ideas.
They're both about a demon king/queen who isn't a stereotypical "big bad". The Maou in both doesn't advocate violence, and is instead interested in helping humans. Plus, both Maoyuu and Shina Dark are comical.
