However, a turn of events leaves Kraft in an unexpected predicament where he may lose something more precious than just his cart of goods...
Both anime have the same slow-paced medieval setting. Economics is also really important in both anime.
Both animes have a lot in common. They base heavy on ecconomy during their plots and use it to create and explain problems in a higher magnitued, while they differ on the scale. Both animes are also not the fast and action-like type, while there are few times, you get to see a battle, which tend to be breathtaking in their dimensions... well, in a certain way at least.
With over 20 million players worldwide, Elder Tale is one of the hottest online RPGs. At least, it used to be only a game, until the fateful day that tens of thousands of players became stuck in the virtual world, unable to log out. For these would-be knights, healers and magicians, Elder Tale is no longer a hobby, it’s a reality, complete with tasteless in-game food, revivals upon death, and boring NPC conversations! With no other options than to accept their fates, the analytical Shiroe, perverted-and-proud Naotsugu, tiny and adorable Akatsuki and other new friends must adjust to their new lives in Elder Tale, avoiding player killers and monsters along the way!
These two animes have a few similarities that really stand out. They both build new economies and deal with creating a better world, and they both have powerful characters who have some cool fight scenes. Fighting does not decide everything in these worlds. It often comes down to polotics. I really enjoyed this aspect in both.
These two anime are written by the same writer, they touch on fantasy worlds, but with a complex approach to politics and economics.
Despite touching on serious matters, they are both light heartead, with endearing charracters, what the writer does provide is a bit more depth to these charracters than usually expected, and that is definitely a bonus for me.
Yohko is nothing but ordinary. Throughout her life she has been considered an outcast, especially with a hair color not native to many in Japan, bright red. Things change for Yohko when a mysterious man named Keiki arrives and claims that she is his empress. Yohko and two friends are then taken through a vortex, and then abandoned.. in a world of demons and magic.
In Maou Yuusha a hero and the queen of demons partner together to bring peace to all the land. Maou Yuusha is similar to Twelve Kingdom because it has a lot to do with war tactics and "chosen ones" being at the front lines to lead everyone. They both also have go on a journey to understand his or herself and what they truely want. Youko in Twelve kingdom had to accept being a new queen while the Hero needed to accept partnering with the demon queen and changing his own view points of killing all the demons. Twelve kingdom has a theme of half human- half animal. But, in Yuusha there are demon vs human type of conflicts. They both fight with swords and have religious themes. Lots of themes overlap and I recommend both!
One day, without warning, a huge hole appeared in the world and demons emerged, ready for battle. Assuming that the demon king sealed by a hero 1,000 years ago must have escaped, the king of the land set forth a decree: the hero’s descendents must defeat evil once more! For Alba, one such would-be hero, this journey will be anything but ordinary given his growing collection of bizarre and wacky companions. Alongside young demon Ruki, age-inappropriate Ruldolf, tentacle-fighter witch Zwei and a host of others, Alba will get arrested, play dodgeball, travel across the land, and least importantly, learn the truth about the hole in the world!
Rhiannon is the fair and gentle daughter of a village chief. Unfortunately for her, she's also exactly the sort of maiden who is needed as a sacrifice to wake the Demon King Arawn from his thousand-year slumber and is soon kidnapped for this very purpose. However, when Arawn is summoned, he decides to spare Rhiannon's life, instead killing her captor and freeing her from mind control. Taken with his kindness, Rhiannon immediately decides to marry the Demon King, making him the new village chief. All of this is bad news for Rhiannon's protective but hot-headed brother Arthur, who must now pledge his knightly service to his new Lord, Arawn. Together the three of them must journey and together they must fight, encountering new friends and new foes along the way.
Both feature Demon Kings, but these are not your run of the mill Demon Kings, no no. Maoyuu and Tears to Tiara set out to redefine the term Demon King, by turning the would be villian into a good guy. So if you enjoyed the unconventional theme of the demon king in one, you might like the other one as well.
