Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero

Maoyu: Archenemy & Hero

After many trials, the Hero has reached his destination: the throne room of the Demon King, where he hopes to end the war between the Demon and Human realms once and for all. What he finds, however, is not at all what he expected: the 'king' of the Demons is a woman, and a bouncy one at that - what's more, rather than fighting, she wishes to engage him in dialogue! She explains that he was never expected to succeed in his mission, because the war is perpetuated by parties in the human world who profit from it every day. Swayed by her arguments, he makes a pact with her to work toward peace for both their worlds. Together, they will better the lives of their people and create a world where war is no longer needed to ensure prosperity - despite those who would shed blood to keep the status quo.

The start of both of these animes are similar, two sworn enemies become allies. is Maoyuu, the hero is persuaded by the Demon king to join forces, and in Marksman and Vanadis, the MC is captured by the Maiden and she tries to get him to join her as well.

Two sworn enemies become unlikely allies. With both women proposing the reluctant male lead devote themselves to the other.

GrondXIII GrondXIII says...

Both anime try to show the viewer in how the world works. Both cover inter-regional relationships, with Maoyuu Maou Yuusha focusing more on economical interests, while Madan No Ou Vanadis focuses more on military interests and tactics.

njala njala says...

both on the same type, harem and war, politics and boobs. They both start in a similar way, with enemy becoming allies and all. 

TheErinnyes TheErinnyes says...

These anime have a lot in common but also have a few differences in the way that the story goes along. Lord Marksman and Vanadis has more action and warfare than Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and it sticks more with the Medievel Fantasy sense. While Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is more about Politics and mordernization in the sense that the Demon king shares the discoveries of the demons with the humans as a way to connect both societies in order to allow for coexistense. 

If you like either one of these anime you will definitely like the other.

Acranehood Acranehood says...

Lord Marksman and Vanadis has a lot of information about battle and strategy. Maoyuu is more about progression of technology, and economics and the politics that run them. Both have a romancy kind of harem thing that go on and both seem to capture a good amount of nuance in their respective categories.

Both are all about war and combat and strategy and therefore contain a good amount of action. Also, both have generals that are girls. Both anime are about a main character who is a subordinate of some warrior girl who is trying to bring peace to the land. Both are awesome!!

staffordshire staffordshire says...

both main characters are in a very similar situations. both animes are really good and worth watching. there is some ecchi and comedy, so if you are looking for any of those you will definately enjoy both shows.

blitzburns4 blitzburns4 says...

Come on, a relatively well-written harem anime whereupon a gifted and deus-ex-ridden (always has everything go right for him) individual is drafted into a romantic interest's service? This is literally the same plot introduction for both Lord Marksman and Vanadis as well as The Ambition of Oda Nobuna. I'm not complaining, per se, but I do recognize an emerging trend when I see one. Every female character is an object in this show.

Very similar drawing both good shows my older brother and I have watched little bit of a  different concept but overalll great shows I would definetly watch Lord Marksman and Vanadis first 

Nobunaga Concerto

Noriko Noriko says...

They're pretty much similar although totally different, but the theme is more less the same.

Both shows focus mainly on war, however NC focuses on feudal Japan, and LMaV focuses on breasts. Both shows are entertaining and share the war theme.

I'd say Lord Marksman is far more brutal though.

Melourn Melourn says...

They have a very similar kind of story-line. Both are large-army warring states type shows... In Lord Marksman and Vanadis there are dragons and magical powers and the hero Tigre gains power from a goddess and a family heirloom bow, but in Nobunaga Concerto, the hero (Saburo/Oda Nobunaga) drops out of the sky after being transported back in time somehow and has knowledge of the future. Both are really cool.

Both of thwese shows are brilliant. The hero is Lord Marksman and Vanadis is Lord Tigre, an expert marksman and a count of the land of Alsice. He only wants peace for his people, but he is pulled into a desperate fight for survival and for good. In Kingdom, the hero is Xin, a slave that earned his freedom by rescuing the rightful ruler of of the state of Qin and has aspirations of becoming the greatest general under the heavens.

Both shows have intelligent story-lines that keep you on your toes and guessing as to who might win out in the end. Although, everyone knows the hero's always come out on top.

Kingdom uses some crappy CG for some of heir massive armies while Lord Marksman and vanadis just scale back the armies considerably and use a tiny bit of CG for some chess pieces that they use to demonstrate the movements of the armies that they won't be showing.

While Kingdom has unbelievable (literally) feats of strength and physical prowess, Lord Marksman offers magic-wielding vixens with EXCELLENT ....attributes...

Both are fantastic.

Both shows involve big-breasted girls selected to possess special powers and fight in wars. They also both take place in a non-modern setting: Freezing in the future, Lord Marksman and Vanadis in the past.

> Both about the main character owning a territory and trying to help/protect his people.

> Both encounter a female who has magic abilities and is amused by them/offers her help.

In either case they both seem like fun shows, not the greatest but a good watch for sure.

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu

Ryner is not your typical soldier. Cursed with a mysterious, deadly power—the Alpha Stigma—he has been called a monster his entire life. His beautiful partner, Ferris, is a lethal warrior with wits as sharp as her blade. Together they search for the Hero Relics—mystical artifacts that give their owners devastating supernatural abilities—to help their king give hope to a country plagued by political corruption. When they cross arms with a pair of dangerous hunters who wield several of the ancient armaments, Ferris faces Ryner in his most volatile state. As enemies wait in the shadows and blood is spilled amidst a constant threat of mutiny, for these heroes, one move could spark a war.
