Let's be honest here. When it comes to romance, Maoyuu's a love comedy. For those of us who, like me, like the genre, it's great. We'll definitely laugh at the characters' antics. But those looking for a serious romance should look elsewhere.

Maoyuu's a deconstruction of fantasy RPGs, of their glorification of war, and even of the modern view of war as an unmitigated horror. It can be thought-provoking, inspiring, and certainly funny. But it doesn't try to be a serious romance. For all the common points with S&W (including the human x fantasy creature angle), the approach to romance is completely different.
