Kyo Kara Maoh!, known in Japan as Kyō Kara Maō! (今日から㋮王!?, lit. "Starting Today I'm the Demon King!") original run April, 2004 February, 2009. Directed by Junji Nishimura.
(Source - Wiki)!

List of Characters



Plot Summary: Yuri Shibuya was living a pretty normal life. That changed the day he was dunked into a toilet after an attempt to save a classmate from a gang of bullies. Instead of just getting a good soaking, he's pulled in. The next thing he knows, he's in a world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe. If that's not odd enough, he's told that he is to be the next Maoh, just because he has black hair and black eyes. The Maoh is the King of the Mazoku, who are coexisting not-so-peacefully with the humans in this world. Much to his subjects' dismay, he's totally different from the rulers they're accustomed to. He's kind, considerate, a believer in justice, and not willing to use violence to solve conflicts. Not exactly someone they want running a country on the very brink of war. Now, Yuri has to deal with trying to become a good Maoh, while at the same time attempting to adapt to this lands' customs and culture, all in a world where the tension between the humans and Mazoku is reaching its peak.

Genres: adventure, comedy, fantasy
Themes: bishounen, demons, male harem, royalty, shounen-ai
Episodes: 78
Age Rating: Older Teen
(Source - ANN)

Anyone know this series? It' pretty new (FMA got fansubbed right after) and already got licensed. While I've only got one ep I'm sold! biggrin.gif

Whaddya expect: it's a spoof on the Mary Sue themes in certain shoujo series (Fushigi Yuugi for example) and focuses mainly on fan-service (shonen-ai between characters *__*) and making one laugh: it reached its goal with flying colors in my opinion! laugh.gif

So anyone seen/heard of it? biggrin.gif

I, a non-yaoi fan, am guilty of watching this anime... sleep.gif

i don't know, for some reason, i enjoy watching this series. and the yaoi parts are just so funny. maybe it's because yaoi parts are humorous and not serious that i found tolerance in watching it.

plus, the fact that they have a fair number of female characters with such unique personalities that i find this series quite balanced indeed.

wolfram... is a guy, right? i'm still hoping that he's a girl though. but, hehe, what am i saying? this is yaoi anime for crying out loud! ^^;;

i particularly like yuri's mom... she's just so... adorable. she would've been better off with conrad. and i enjoy watching yuri getting "flushed", hahaha. Gunther is just... amusing, especially when he's in perv mode over yuri. so funny.

shocking that i'm watching this, huh? ^^;;

A True SHOCK. O___O Viki knowing and actually enjoying a shonen-ai series? OK, even though it's a parody, but still! O___O I need time to get over this shock.

.............
.........
.....
.........
.............

OK, yes Wolfram's a boy. biggrin.gif A pretty boy! Every anime needs a pretty boy! And yes, that one episode I saw.. there was this woman (a maid I think) and she rocked. ^___^ I liked her, really liked her. Though my favorite caracter is Gunther, the little sweet! Yush. So, who's your favorite character? Sis is complaining that noone likes Conrad. Maybe you're her savior! ^__~

So, is Conrad your fave?

laugh.gif No sweat. It doesn't seem to be in-demand right now. It just got licensed too, so I didn't get all the episodes either. *big sigh* I'd love to watch them all though. *__* (I never saw Yuuri's Mom. Drat, she sounds like a nice character! smile.gif)

BlueRakuen, your sister's cruel! How can she not like anime? tongue.gif Hehe, wonder why FMA's an exception, though. Ed, Ed, Ed. biggrin.gif

Kyou kara maou is also licensed? *sigh* first FMA, then samurai 7, now this... what next, tenjo tenge?

but i'm still surprised that naruto anime hasn't been licensed yet despite its popularity.

anyway, going back to the topic, yeah, yuuri's mom is just so adorable... she's so talkative and innocent, but she's not dumb. i dunno... she's just so cute! XD she and conrad would've made a better pair.

i forgot wolfram's brother's name, but his fiancee is just hilarious! she's an inventor and poor little gunther was her guinea pig laugh.gif

About the licensing of KKM it's awful in a way. They also got their hands on Peacemaker Kurogane, right? @__@ It's all going so fast!

Aaaw, Conrad and Yuuri's mother! *__* Conrad deserves someone like her, I'm sure. Although... is Yuuri's mom married? blink.gif I've never heard anything about Yuuri's dad, so....

laugh.gif You mean Gwendel? Wolfram's brother? ....those relationships sure are weird. I mean, Conrad, Wolfram & Gwendel are all brothers... I thought Conrad was Wolfram's father. -__- And Gwendel... I don't see any similarities between these three! Physically, I mean.

they recently showed yuuhi's dad... he's like the older version of yuuhi... the funny thing is, on one of their dates (yuuhi's parents), his dad told his mom that he was the Maou/demon king... the normal reaction would be to laugh, but yuuhi's mom went all excited asking about him being a demon king and his servants and all! she's just so cute! yuuhi doen't want to tell her about him being the new maou cuz he didn't want her to be shocked or something, but apparently she already knows about it... about his dad being a maou...

i also loved PM kurogane... it's just too funny to pass! did you know that Akesato's VA is also Riza Hawkeye's VA? and that Suzumu's VA is Cloud Strife's VA in the Advent Children VA?

what id din't like about PMK is how abruptly it ended... there really wasn't any plot...

want another surprise? my favorite character is... OKITA!! NYAY! And Ayu-neesan (T_T why did they have to... T_T...)

biggrin.gif;; Actually I haven't seen anything of PC (yet!!). It got licensed and pulled off the Internet before I could get my hands on the subs. *big sigh* I really wanted them though, because it reminded me of Rurouni Kenshin. Gotta love those samurais, no? biggrin.gif Oh! And the artwork's really good. *__* Come to think of it... wasn't it one of BONES' series as well? O_o

i dont remember if it was bones' work... but never mind the story (it's crap anyway)... just focus on the humor and you'll be fine. i've finished it already and went, "HUH? WTF?" in the end... but i enjoyed watching the series very much, especially okita and his antics. he's just so cute! yaoi was only implied in the end... but okita was definitely portrayed as gay. but, hehehe, as i said, yaoi only implied in the end. he was just being feminine...

Okita, Okita... isn't he the one in the white robes? Who teaches.. Kurogane (that's the main character, right?) the "ways of the katana"? biggrin.gif I thought he was a girl at first. Reminded me of Miss Kaoru.

actually that's the question... just what is "Kurogane Peacemaker" anyway? they never really explained it. Ryoma Sakamoto, another politcal activist who is pro-foreigner, kept calling Tetsunosuke's, or tetsu for short,(the main character) dad, the Peacemaker. there are two possible explanations:

a). since, apparently, Tatsunosuke (tetsu's older brother), knows how to hold a gun, indicates that his father may have taught him how to use one. a peacemaker is a type of gun (if you played ff7, vincent valentine's ultimate weapon, i think, is the peacemaker).

B ). peacemaker since he was like a diplomat for japan and america since he's fluent in english.

kurogane... it was supposed to be explained in the end, but no one gave a direct answer.

okita is that really cute girly samurai who is supposed to be the #1 samurai in the shinsen gumi second only to hijakata. if you look his name up in japanese history books, you'll find his name along with hijikata and saitou hajime. he died of illness, tuberculosis, i think (he keeps on coughing out blood)

biggrin.gif Vincent's Peacemaker! Yes, yes I know of it. -___- Never managed to get it though...

Peacemaker, the anime, sounds complicated... @__@ Um, is there a manga version?

it's not complicated really...it's supposed to be, but they really didn't explain it. most episodes are just fun... especially that ep where tetsu was feeling depressed and okita thought of a good plan to get his energy back.

so, one day, okita, knowing that the big and scary 2nd in command, hijikata, was a frustrated poet writing haikus that sounded really stupid under a pen name, took his poetry/haiku notebook and showed it to tetsu.

hijikata found out that it was missing and came to only one conclusion... okita took it. upon discovery, okita passed the notebook to tetsu and held down hijikata to give him a good head start.

when hijikata finally got away from okita... OMG! RUN TETSU!!! RUN AWAY FROM THE BLOOD THRISTY MAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!! it was so funny! tetsu had unintentionally got a few innocent bystanders (some of their colleagues) involved.

apparently, this was okita's idea of rejuvenating tetsu's energy... but of course, he had a little fun himself and doodled in hijakata's notebooks.
