No kidding. It's exhilarating to stumble across a show that has almost zero hype, especially since Kyou's animation and artwork are more than adequate.

yeah, this is easily the best of the new season that I have seen.

Madlax was kinda slow and looks like a Noir rehash (awesome music, though)
Kono.... had a cool action scene but also had a nude scene and seemed otherwise very average
Baku Ten had way too much ecchiness for my taste, although the action was pretty awesome

In terms of entertainment and plot, this one seems tops



....still haven't seen Ragnarok

This one is funny. It's a must watch for me already. Bishies are a plus and if there's shonenai that's even better. Love the last line.

Yeah... i loved the last line and was that totally bishi person Wolfram? I think it was because the voice seems similar to Okita's

Yeah, he's definitely voiced by Okita Souji's seiyuu. I really look forward to seeing more of this character. ^_^

why do i get a weiss kruez vibe from this series? O_o
The first episode didn't really grab me that much and the only thing that it has going so far is the bishounen and possibly the yaoi vibes that will be sure to follow :P

Not that I mind but I got the Weiss Kreuz feel too. However, Kyo Kara Maou looks like it actually has a humorous plot and won't take itself too seriously with overly cool melodramatic poses and angst. Time will tell if it will have as many atrocious plot holes as Weiss Kreuz.

I do get the feeling that this series will turn serious though. I mean, he's a demon king...

Wow, I was beginning to think I was the only person not totally wowed by this show. It seemed tame and boring to me. The jokes that were mentioned like the toilet one and the butt one just seemed groan inducing to me. For some reason I found the skeleton oddly amusing when it chattered it's teeth but other than that I didnt really like anything about this show. I may just be in a bad mood lately because I didnt find Midori no hibi all that funny either and everyone else seems to think thats hilarious too. I was really looking forward to a funny show this season too because I have been overdosing on shounen lately.

So Yuuri is really a descendant of demons, and he is enthroned with the title demon king to rule over all demons, in a demonic kingdom. Wait a minute? Where are the demons exactly? Surely they don't look like bishonens.

I actually found the first episode funny and quite enjoyable. Normally, I like the sort of action or bloody violence type of anime. This one just kind of cought my attension. It is complete opposite of what "NORMAL RPG SCENE" should be. I think I will watch the second episode and see how it goes.

By the way, I thought Ive seen some girls in the anime. Was I half sleeping when I watched it?

to me it's the best new anime so far ,the plot is original and so is the main character besides it's very funny.if there 's some shonen-ai i 'm sure it won't be serious,just a way to make more jokes.

As long as the Shonen-ai stuff is not serious like what is in Gravitation, I would be happy.

Gravitation is just sort of... >_<

I just am not a great fan of gay guys.
