The Demon Queen met with two members of the Alliance. She gave them the idea of cultivating corn in exchange of ending the war. Somewhat begrudgedly, they agreed. One of the negotiators, a young merchant, even disclosed his plans to eventually marry the Demon Queen. The Hero was supposed to be looking for her former mage colleague, but he has been hidden in the mansion. He is afraid of not being able to help the Demon Queen, falling in love, and making her suffer with his eventual death.
Episode 4 of Maoyu was okay. Most of the episode revolved around the Demon Queen, the Hero and their insecurities. We got a glimpse on the human forces' preparations for a big battle against the demons. We again saw interesting traits from the big sister maid. While trying to comfort an exhausted Knight, the big sister maid questioned if she was still a human after learning so many new things. This mostly uneventful episode gets a 8 out of 10.
