Story Plot started with a All out War between the Demons and the Humans, which caused many lost of live to both sides.

The Hero, hoping to stop the war once and for all, arrived at the Place where the Demon King stay, and as he about to fight him, it turned out to be a Her.

The Demon Queen had to use the words King as it is their Tradition, due to the word Japanese "Maou". And though Hero (Yuusha) had argued that there were many lost of lives, Maou had show the proof that both sides had benefits a lot from the wars.

For the human sides, they had bond together and due to the war, many poor countries had received help like food and money, and many people earning a lot from the war. For the Demon sides, they had bond together and fight under one rule, unlike previously they fight for their own.

However, despite wanting to stop the war for peace, Maou had also shown proof of what might happened once the war is stop; Civil Wars. A interwar of both sides which can be very fatal.

Knowing this, Yuusha had hesitant and wonder what to do, to which Maou had ask him to join force with her and to start her plan for a truly peace for both sides.

In order to hatch it, Maou and Yuusha went to the human world first and in hope to teach the people the way of harvesting and farming, to help the hungry first and to teach the people on knowledge so that they can learn and help out.

Interestingly, the fact that Demon pass knowledge to the human in this story is how many human learn of thing though demon as shown in many other stories. But this time is the Maou and Yuusha form a contract and decided to help both sides in order to have a peace.

While Maou is helping on the human sides, due to the fake rumor that both of them had fatal injury caused some conflicts on both sides.

And so, Yuusha had to help out with the conflict on the Demon sides.

Though he got many marriage proposal on the demon, he did not accept of them as he got feeling for the Maou, though he too shy to admit it.

Interestingly, Maou also like Yuusha, and that their initial appearance got the Yuusha shocked; The Maou is also a pretty girl though she had to wear a fake horn hairband due to her statue as the demon queen.

In order to hide themselves in order to push their plan for peace, they need to start help both sides and so they use the Crimson Scholar and White/Black Swordsman. But later on Yuusha's friends who joined him in the fight against the demon previously start to be aware that he was alive.

The reason why Yuusha helped out was that he later started to notice that demons and human had their own good and bad.

Even one learnt of a hard thing on the 2 sisters who run away who are also slave. The Head Maid of the Maou had later keep them so that they can learn to take care of themselves. The older sister can learn a lot more which she help Maou in many ways.

In order to pass her knowledge to the other countries, Maou had to had make used of many other ways, like hiring a young cunning merchant or making uses of friendly experimental on harvesting to ensure that things are going their ways.

All done are to shown proof to other that there is a way to help the people. Interestingly, Maou also made use of the Church which spreads the teaching very fast, and she did add in many inventions to help the people. Doing so, they had start the first phrase of feeding the hungry.

But there are still countries who push to end the war by sending in countless lives to fight. The Demons, despite temporary not under the demon queen rules, still fight for defend and resist the human.

Though they shown that demons are bad and human are right, there were many sign where bad and good or right and wrong aren't the point to judge the demon and human.

There were many sign where human are also bad and demons are good in the story, which prove that both demons and human aren't that much different, but is how much their initial appearances is.

Well, the Yuusha did gotten his surprise shocked from learning that Maou was like another pretty girl and both of them shown true feeling to each other. Yuusha did had a female knight whom he traveled before, and she also show sign that she like him too.

A not bad story which there were many Manga adapted from the Light Novel, and the first story which caught my peeking eye was the Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - "Be mine, Hero" "I refuse!.

I was wondering about the refuse part and turned out the story was nice, and so I peeked into most of them, and later the Anime which come out later on.

A story about the Yuusha and Maou helping each other in order to had a true peace wasn't what I expected, and there still the war of the demons and human. Interestingly, both of them are aware that the lost of lives are unavoidable, but they want to the true peace to happen, so that they walk along sides each other.

Had to give praise to the Creator for having a nice story though I would wish the characters would have their own name, instead of Demon Queen, Hero and Head Maid etc. Very hard to know if another person with the same name would appear.

As far as I peeked, do you want to help them for a true peace in Maoyuu Maou Yuusha?
