Along the new anime this season this was the one that stood out the most. Why? That’s because I seem to have a thing for fantasylike romances. And so right before maoyuu started airing I read the manga and I couldn’t help but think how similar this is to Spice and Wolf, one of my favourite anime( if you have not seen spice and wolf then you better get out there and watch it. Seriously what are you doing with your life?!). Soon afterwards I had a look at both of them and noticed something incredible: The voice actors for the two main characters in Spice and Wolf are the same ones in Maoyuu! Same goes for the director. This really got my hopes up.
Fortunetly, I was not disappointed. The atmosphere, the dialogues and the fanservice is just like Spice and Wolf.
It’s a very entertaining first episode even if the begining was rushed. There was a bit of fanservice here and there but nothing really major. As long as they don’t focus on it too much I don’t think it will affect the show in a negative way.
That’s about all I have to say about maoyuu for now. All that’s left is to wait and see if “whats after the hill” will be interesting or not. Frankly, I have a feeling it will be!
