So this new series I found that is based off of a Light Novel of the same name, I'm really liking, and I heard that an Anime was being made so lets start:
Synopsis:
Quote :
In a world of magic and fantasy, there exist two worlds: the Human World and the Demon World of fantasy creatures. Fifteen years ago, the "War of the Southern Kingdoms” broke out between both sides, each intending to conquer the other. Both sides were locked in a stalemate, until a young male human decides to do something about it. Known as the Hero, he is a skilled and powerful warrior who has traveled to the Demon World to end their evil by killing their leader, the Demon Queen.
But what surprised the Hero when he storms the Demon Queen's castle is that the latter doesn't want a fight. She just wanted to reveal to him a sordid truth: the war has never always been about good versus evil — it's a far more complicated affair, with each side being equally good and evil all the same.
On one hand, the war helped united erstwhile feuding kingdoms against a common enemy. On the other hand, it allowed opportunists to take advantage of their own races and get rich off the war — powerful, corrupt humans control the poor and weak, while warmongering demon clans harass pacifistic ones. Then there's the prospects should one side win: the loser gets oppressed, while the winner breaks down into infighting over the spoils. Prematurely ending the war is an even worse idea, because so much money, time and resources have been spent for the war effort soldiers could never get any compensation should a ceasefire be signed immediately, causing each side to break down into civil war against their former employers.
Fortunately, the Demon Queen has a better idea, and she wants the Hero's help to forge a peaceful end to the war with the least repercussions — by playing behind the scenes. Convinced, the Hero agrees to join her as they try to forge a peaceful way out, gaining allies and companions in the process.

There are multiple versions of this series so I numbered links to the images at top for each one(if included an image)
Links:
1) : Here (Supposedly Closest to the original light Novel, focuses on Characters)
2) : Here (More Serious than the Above Focuses on the battles and Action, supposedly)
3) : Here (More Light hearted Focuses on the Romance, supposedly)
Gaiden(no image) : Here
4-Koma(no image) : Here
Anime(First 4 Episodes Are out at Time of Writing):
Animehere.com
Anime44.com

So now you may Discuss the series.
Oh and when reading: Yes, the characters don't have names at all and are referred to as whatever their role, job, best way to describe them is(eg: Hero, Female Knight, Head Maid, Big Sis Maid, Commander).
Fan Art(Not made by me)

"Demotivationals"(Not made by me)

In My Opinion This is the best Series from the current Anime Line Up, but what are your thoughts?

The current line-up of anime in my opinion is pretty weak, and this is one of the much better shows coming out of it. It's currently second on my list of favorites. Plot is actually interesting but I'm afraid it's going to get a bad case of Spice and Wolf were it becomes more economics class and you don't really get to learn and feel for the characters; the first episode alone had some ridiculously bad pacing. BUT HEY, on my list of something I wish to watch until the end.



I'm trying a Youtube thing! https://www.youtube.com/user/BearOnStilts

Actually if the series follows its original source(or the manga even), they will focus more on the characters, and its not like they were focusing a lot on the "economy" and politics now in the beginning.
