Could it be that the devil's sword, Morugif, is...

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny situations in Kyo Kara Maoh August 20, 2005
First of all, the "Alice in Wonderland" plot never took such a funny, offbeat twist before "Kyo Kara Maoh!" was made. Making Yuri (the unsuspecting boy protagonist of the story) fall into another dimension [full of shonen-ai and yaoi possible situations (^_~)] and have to figure out how to be the king of a demon race is just precious...especially since Yuri is something that doesn't come up very often in anime: a seriously clueless boy. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that Yuri may just be more clueless than Kagome from the "Inu Yasha" series...but that's what makes him loveable. He may be overwhelmed, but his spirit to overcome and do what needs to be done in the end is what will eventually make him a good king...at least, that's what everybody is hoping.

As for this volume in general, episodes 6-10 are full of risque situations, including some fun times with Gwendal, Gunter, and Anissina, in search of a remedy to get a cursed tiara/crown off Gunter's head (don't ask, just watch). This bit of comedy also has my friends and I asking: "Are they going to hook up later?" ...of course, I'm not going to spoil who we think may hook up later, but it's still a valid question.

Also in this volume is a hypocritical Wolfram. If everybody who watched the first volume remembers, Wolfram was accidentally engaged to Yuri during a dinner party turned hostile. I hope everybody remembers Wolfram telling his mother (horray for Lady Celi! ^_^) that he didn't like boys, because in this volume, Wolfram exhibits behavior to the contrary. He's exceedingly jealous of everybody who comes close to Yuri, and for some reason thinks that sleeping in the same bed as Yuri is no big deal, since they're engaged now...even though Wolfram keeps saying he thinks it sucks that he's engaged to Yuri at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars slashable shojo comedy/action at it's finest! March 22, 2006
the impression I got from hearing about this series online was a comedic shonen-ai series, but when I finally watched it I found a shojo comedy/action that hooked me at the get go! altho there are some boylove elements it's not focused on them enough to make the series a true shonen-ai/boylove series, as they're mostly used for comedic purposes. the action is top notch, and if you love swordfights you'll have enough here to keep you happy. as for the comedy, it's wacky, zany, and all around great! all the characters are pretty well-rounded and have their quirks (gotta love a character with a good quirk).

what really hooked me on this series, however, was the fact that it has a good compelling plot to go with it. you just don't expect to see something with zany comedy AND a plot with a good ammount of deapth to it - especially when they work together without the comedy negatively impacting the plot and vice-versa. even the "filler" eps that pop up in this series have plot value, as they develop the characters more.

I highly reccomend trying out this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great summer fun! July 27, 2005
By Mirage
I own and watch pretty decent amount of anime, so when I ran across this one in Best Buy I was intrigued and the summary on the back cover sounded good, so I decided to give it a try.

One thing I must say, it was definetly not dissapointing. It was funny and charming at the beggining, and got even better after Yuri met up with Wolfram, who is very cute and girly looking prince of the lands. After Wolfram's unfriendly confrontation with Yuri, more craziness follows, and the story takes even bigger unexpected turns.

My main approval also goes to the anime art itself. It is a very well drawn anime with good audio sounds, and bright colors.

I have also watched the second part of Kyo Kara Maoh, which also deserved the same credit as the first part. Overall characters are very funny and creative, each helping Yuri along with his new position as the king.

If you are a fan of great anime, this title deserves your attention!

Thanks,

mirage.

This is an interesting anime that makes you want to laugh and cry all at the same time. Over the top action, humor, and drama mix together in a way that makes you want to keep watching to find out what is going to happen next.
