Under the guise of the Southern Nations the human launched a disastrous attack on the demons to retake the Bright Light Island. The Hero was in a human-controlled land, where demons were treated like slaves. Meanwhile, the Demon Queen continued to be sad, but renewed her energy after the Knight pledged to fight for her ideals (and the love of the Hero). On the night of the New Year's festival, the Hero briefly returned to see the Demon Queen. They patched things up and renewed their vow to change the world.
Episode 5 of Maoyu was lackluster. The disastrous attack seemed kind of pointless. It only added more confusion to the political affairs of the humans. I truly hope the next episode clarifies some of the several unanswered questions. The best things about this episode to me were the maids giving gifts to the Demon Queen and Head Maid; and the sort of romantic reunion of the titular couple. Episode 5 was not very good, and it gets a 7 out of 10.
