Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Maoyu – Archenemy & Hero anime. The company says it will make the series available through select digital outlets soon, with a home video release to follow.
The story centers around Yūsha (Hero), a fighter in a war that humans and demons have waged for 15 years. The humans have infiltrated the demons’ territory, but Hero is separated from his three companions before he enters the castle of M.A.O (Demon Queen). However, the Queen is waiting for him, and instead of fighting him, she proposes an alliance. Her explanation changes his entire view of not just his purpose in battle, but the purpose of war in general.
Crunchyroll simulcast Maoyu – Archenemy & Hero as it aired in Japan.
