Two words! FAN SERVICE!
Easy to see where this is going and looks like it'll be the usual frantic trip.
Maou or Demon Lord has become in itself it's own genre. However, it been done before and done better. Eye candy and fan service are it's only strengths and that does not say much. Still the humor and intelligence level will statisfy the most lowest common denominator.
exploitive & entertaining. worth following up on
The goody two-shoes who's fated to become a demon lord is a deliciously ironic story premise, and the characters in the pilot seemed pretty cool, as well as the action sequences. But unfortunately, the plot was completely devoid of any subtlety. I'd still watch another episode, in hope of seeing some more interesting relationships and plotlines, since it's got to be tough to get everything in the pilot.
