Which one is that?

I really like the look of the one ZODDGUTS posted but theres a certain charm to the one we got atm, I think it's the "totally unfair upward glance and pout which no man can withstand"

And the other one doesn't look bad but by looks of it be alot funnier than other 2.

I, too, really REALLY loved the way the demon queen sold herself. Usually, when a character does this, they sound all arrogant and haughty, like some tsundere(usually BECAUSE its a tsundere), but the demon queen was very endearing, honest, and humble. No matter how angled her 'upward glances' were, I got the feeling that the hero would not fall for any trickery lightly, but he saw these elements in her behavior and decided to place his fate in her hands. It was actually quite romantic in a way.

I agree.
was really interesting as the first ch and I must admit I really like how the whole situation took place.
This will be one of those manga interesting to read especially thanks the interaction that there will bebetween the two protagonists.
I mean it is rare to see a demon queen with the hero, I just remember only one manga with a similar situation.

The whole "our family is full of curiosity" got me thinking(jokingly, mind you), what if all this was planned so that she could get close to a hero? Not to do anything sinister, but maybe to feel what it's like to love and be love, and that this whole scenario was to bait the hero into giving her an opportunity for these feelings.

I think there isn't an offical english name for it yet. Some are guessing that Maoyuu is a combination of Maou + Yuusha aka Devil Queen and Hero, but that's basically everything to it for now . The quote is the first sentence of the scanlation -> "Become mine, Hero!" "I refuse."

What happened?

It's like I breathed some fresh air, the setting isn't reallly original (similar to A-kun the sensou) but the drawings and characters are quite unique and nice.

Only two chapters but it was great owww, the maou is quite funny, whether she goes in her economical state or when she becomes deredere.

Basically it's "The Demon Queen and the Hero".

BTW, i found the original flash manga that appeared in 2ch here.

Credit goes to TheVoidSky for translating it in english.

PS: A TVTropes page!

Bright and shining hero goes to slay the wicked demon queen in her dark castle--!

and gets a lecture in wartime economics and market theory?

Got my attention. Very unique blend of heroic idealism and more unfortunate pragmatism.

PS. Handlebars. That is all

Pretty decent chapter with dawww moments between the hero and DQ. Got to see some minor skills the hero has with the sword as well. The new credit page is a little spoiler as to what's to come I suppose...

Chapter 3 made me wonder if the hero's truly gay. You have a hot bombshell who's literally sleeping at your lap and chest with her tits showing nearly more than half cleavage and he didn't even get a frickin boner. Either he's extremely well composed or he is gay. I hope it's the former.

They show the church on how it was when it was in the middle age. The church supported education and was promoting agriculture including welfare and they're hardly backward. The concept of the world was flat promoted by the church was nothing more than a myth, when in fact they supported the world was round theory from the early 1st millennia.

I love the Comic Clear version, not only do the Hero and Demon Queen look better (and hot!), it feels romantic watching them together.

Hmm..as for me I'm liking the current scanlated version best. The arts looks neat and the development + interaction between hero and demon queen = instant win.

Anyway on the story, the new character looks like a knight from a holy order formed within the church. I saw the resemblance between her and Agrias (FF tactics) or Saber (Fate) already. I guess maybe she and the heroes were former pals seeing that he’s also protecting the church from demons. I foresee a possible love triangle between the hero, demon queen and the knight woot. Also am I the only one who thought that the walrus general looked badass?
