Ookami to Koushinryou, Maoyuu Maou Yuusha: 'Kono Ware no Mono to Nare, Yuusha yo' 'Kotowaru!' Recommendations
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
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).
There really is a familiar mood with these two fantasy titles. Taking place in an otherworldly setting, both series involves two main characters on a journey with their motivations. There is an odd connection between the two main characters as they deal with various conflicts. Economics plays a pivotal role as we see the potentials of the duo. Along the way, their relationship is also fleshed out that can be described by various human emotions. Neither series depends on action to tell their stories but instead relies on their refreshing gimmicks of economics and political affairs.
Same general feel, both really good.
