Oh Demon King Daimao, you unambitious little series you. The first episode made a fairly attractive fantasy world, but somewhere along the lines you fell into hair-antennae dragons and power-ranger wanna-bes.
Story: 6 out of 10
The story for DKD is fairly cookie cutter. Magical school, check, awkward main character who turns out to secretly be very strong, check. Busty love interests show-casing a wide array of one-sided personalities? Check. All in all, a very bland series. The only saving grace, is that the first few episodes seemed legitimately promising. A futuristic government controlled country, in which high priests help change the world, and the main character who wants to be good, turns out to be the bringer of doom. It shortly after failed, and fell into average mush.
Animation: 5 out of 10
The animation for this series was VERY hit and miss. Intricately detailed fight scene, followed by gawky anatomical errors, and weak landscapes. Ohh, andalso hair antenaed dragons. Just completely average art.
Sound: 5 out of 10
Much the same as the series, the music was very average. Nothing stuck out in a good or bad way for me. Voice acting was decent, and background music was mellow.
Characters: 3 out of 10
Not a single character is original, or shows proper growth. Some of the characters may change factions during the series, but they never change as people.
Overall: 5.5 out of 10
By an unambitious landslide, DKD turned out to be the most painfully average series I've watched in a long time. A few weak jokes here and there, a few weak attemtps at romance here and there, a few weak attemtps at action-paccked fight scenes here and there. Just overall average.
If you are looking for something to light-heartedly watch while doing something else, Iwould say go ahead and try this series, but otherwise it is best to just find something else.
