While the single volume releases of Maoyu landed during 2013 after the series release, the show got slotted for a box set release at the end of last year with a release date of March 18th, 2015. Priced at 22,680 yen, it brought the whole work together in something a little more affordable for Japanese fans. And that’s pretty much all we heard out of the show for the last few years. Now, it looks like the show is being lined up for a rebroadcast on Tokyo MX and select other networks and that March 20th, 2020 will feature a new DVD and Blu-ray box set release. There aren’t any details just yet on either of these plans but what we know comes from the text embedded with the Type A and Type B promos brought out below.
Check out our review of the series as released by Sentai Filmworks last summer here.
Plot concept: Names can be deceiving, something the warrior known as Hero quickly discovers when he storms the castle of the dread Demon King that mankind has fought for fifteen years. For one thing, the “king” turns out to be a queen! Even more shocking, though, is that she’s waiting for him with an unexpected proposal.
She points out that it would be bad for both sides if the war was to end immediately, as without a common enemy, the individual factions of the winning side are certain to turn on each other in a new series of civil wars. However, she has a plan to end the war, bring democracy and advanced knowledge to humanity, and ensure lasting prosperity for both sides, no matter who “wins”. But to accomplish this, she needs a collaborator on the human side, and she’s chosen Hero as the one partner she can trust! Is it a deal with the devil, or mankind’s only hope for lasting peace?
