In the Demon Realm The Hero continued to battle the possessed Demon Queen. He was finally able to get through her by reminding her of their shared feelings. The Demon Queen spoke to her demon subjects about her authority and also realized that many demons still hate the humans. In the human world the Knight was able to stall the hostilities, and the arrival of snow helped. Despite the momentary peace, humans and demons continue to plot to have the war continue forever.
Episode 12 of Maoyu was a nice conclusion to the series. The Demon Queen and The Hero have made significant advances in improving the human world and its relation with the Demon Realm, but a lot of work remains to be done. This episode gets a 10 out of 10. I definitely enjoyed Maoyu, and I hope more anime is made in the near future. I really like how this series can seamlessly combine real world issues and otaku-laced humor. The overall grade for the series is a 8 out of 10.
