Maoyuu Maou Yuusha
The story is set in a world embroiled by war between Humans and Demons. The Humans' greatest hero invades the Demon Queen's castle determined to vanquish her. However, instead of fighting back, the Queen proposes an alliance with the Hero. She explains how a sudden end to the war can bring further chaos to the world as the Humans once united to stand against their common enemies would eventually begin fighting among themselves, with similar issues already occurring at the Demon Realm. Convinced by her words, the Hero joins forces with the Queen and together they execute a plan to bring prosperity and a lasting peace to both Humans and Demons alike.

I remember Spice & Wolf being more focus on economics and less on war and boobs.
Show tries something different, it has a new idea but awkwardly put together.
funny, witty & and a bit of a game-changer. good production values too.
There is alot of parallels to Spice & Wolf in this show but maybe the fact the characters are referred to 'Hero 1' or 'Demon King' made it less appealing and having names. Still it takes a road not travelled of let's Not Save the World almost palible. The 'Demon King' argument that the world doesn't need saving and the world needs war to survive. How this twist on cut and dried formula of TOO many RPGs will work out. Still for those Spice and Wolf fans, there is another show to add to your collection.
Awful. There I said it. Skipped most of the episode. If Ami & Jun need something to do together maybe more Nyanpire episodes since those could keep my attention longer than this show.
