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!

Mixed Feelings
primarily about politics and economics and a bit of military tactics. Weird end. Not great characters, splash of harem. Conditionally recommend, only for people who are interested in a more cerebral political/economic/military type of story.

Story: 7/10
Primarily about political movements and economic developments across the world this manga is set in. I like the developing world and the slow introduction of new players. The ending gets a bit mystical, which is a disappointment considering the very grounded plot prior to the conclusion.

Art: 6/10
The character design is pretty good. The backgrounds are nice too when they're used however there is usually a blank grey instead of ...

Alright, Imma be real with you. I tried to give this manga the benefit of the doubt, I really did. After seeing so many positive reviews, I thought that this manga had to have something to it. I kept telling myself to push through and read the next chapter because there was no way this many people would praise this series over nothing, so I just kept on pushing through chapter after chapter... until it was over. Let's just say that I was pissed when I finished reading it. I wondered, did I seriously waste all this time suffering through this story for nothing? Apparently ...
