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!

When i picked up this series i thought it was gonna be a fun, dumb fantasy manga with a somewhat unique premise. oh boy was i wrong the entire manga was pretty much like watching a political thriller with a "main" story attached to it the story was the selling point for me, the art is pretty good and i really like the characters as they are portrayed as more realistic and more human than most in most mangas. The comedy, main story, romance, and political/economic thriller elements just all blend together in a nice combination. The ending arc was pretty good if you ask read more

Overall, highly recommend this series if you are interested in the premise and are prepared for a lot of economic talk, politics, and stuff like that. It has great characters with some layers to them and a really interesting story.

My biggest problem with it would be the inclusion of a low-key harem trope that wasn't really necessary, as there are few enough romantic moments between the main characters. And then there is the inconclusive ending of the series for its main characters. So that took away from my overall enjoyment of the series, but I still enjoyed the time I've spent reading this.

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

Just a quick warning... this Manga is probably not for everyone. It's very in-depth information-wise, and I even read a review that it was the equivalent of putting a college history/anthropology course into a fantasy story, which is pretty accurate. That being said it's extremely interesting, weaves the story elements with the historical elements very well, and has a lot of great characters that have strong arcs throughout the manga. The romance elements are also very solid, although you do get common tropes of which one to go with and slow romantic development throughout, there is a solid reason why this is read more
