Ok I’m going to dust the cobwebs of this piece of shit and give it another shot.

This story is about the tale between Hero, as in the hero of the story, andImage

Madam Funbags (That’s not even funny anymore) The Demon Lord or The Crimson Scholar which ever you think is more appropriate, I’ll just go with Crimson Scholar.

I’m actually a fan of this series even though I never was able to get through Spice and Wolf, which I will have to revisit again sometime. I’m already further ahead in the story due to the manga by Ishida Akira, I wish they used his character designs for this show but I’m ok with the current ones. The story starts out a lot like every other fantasy series but it mostly ends up being about the economics of war and the profiteering of war. The Hero and the Crimson Scholar’s quest is to end the conflict between the Demons and Humans that is causing the rich to collect their gains from the constant fighting. The series could act as a substitute for Economics 101 but I doubt the barrage of fan-service would allow for such ideas to come across. I’m going to keep watching this show regardless.

The music in the show is alright, I won’t risk my computer looking for the OST. The OP was forgettable while the ED was ok it started to sound like something that would fit the show but then it became Poppy which mind you is not a bad thing, I just expected more.

The main reasons why I like this show: A male protagonist that is not a pusillanimous loser, a female protagonist that is not tsundere all the time, both characters are competent in their fields though Hero is a bit Mary Sue-ish but I can dig it, and Itou Shizuka will be voicing the Firedrake Empress.
