Demon King Daimao actually starts out as a pretty good sci-fi/magic/harem anime. You know the type, a mix of fantasy, sci-fi and comedy all rolled into one. As a new male student enrolls in The Constant Magic Academy only to discover that he may be destined to be the next Demon King whose predecessor almost destroyed the world a hundred years ago! And of course along the way picks up a parcel of various butt kicking female associates. The usual harem fan service anime. And for the first half it's pretty damn good if only it had stayed this way.......

But alas, once it gets around episode 9 or so; it starts to slide into a muddled mix of Japanese mythology, sci-fi and fantasy all rolled up into a complete and total mess. That never makes any sort of sense whatsoever to well...... anybody I suspect. It's not that it's boring or anything; there's lots of action but it's just absolutely and totally uncomprehending and downright silly. Think A Certain Magical Index with an Evageleon ending!

So overall, I'm not quite sure how to rate this? The first half with it's mix of humour, magic and butt kicking females is definitely worth a four! But the muddled nonsensical ending only a one or two with the fighting a good three to three and a half! So I'll compromise and call it a three.

On the plus side the dub is the usual high Sentai standards. Both dub and sub are standard stereo with nothing in the back channels that I was away of. It is also in a modern 16x9 widescreen unlike the 1:33 Amazon listing. But the only extra is a 5 min. Production Sketches piece. Plus the usual clean Op and Ed.

Recommended for the first half but it's up to you if you can tolerate the ending.

The only thing I wanted to point out about this product is that, though it is supposedly the "Complete Collection", it does not feature the 6 special shorts which were included in the Japanese version. I found that last point to be very disappointing. Other than that, great product and good series.

3.0 out of 5 stars Felt kind short and rushed! Aug. 23 2011
By S. Der - Published on
Format: DVD
I agree with most of the reviews here. The anime started out great. The story line was great. They had a bunch of great characters and development of them was nicely done. Then, half way through it, they picked up and rush too much information in way too fast. I seriously don't know how to explain it in words. It's like they literally didn't want to do leave the fans hanging so they finish it, but only put in all the main plots of the story in, but you would had to read the books before hand to know what's really going on because it's was on fast forward times 8!

I mainly want to say, this anime should had been two seasons, but I guess they saw there wasn't going to be another season after, and so, they had to pick and choose what to tell us to finish it. Again, this wasn't a good or bad idea. It's good for people that already know the story and bad for people that don't know it at all.

Honestly at the very end, I didn't know what was going on? It seemed like they were talking about a lot information that came up to that very point, but the thing is...they never told us anything!!! They, just skipped to the end. I'm not kidding either. It was Climax scene to climax scene to climax scene. I was left feeling ???????????? It just went from what seemed like the middle of the series to the end in one and half episodes. There were a 2 or 3 more characters that came out at the end and it seemed like they were important characters that needed to be explained. I mean, they looked super important to the whole series, but I was left feeling, okay, this guy knows everything and he talking a whole of lot information, and now I see the final battle. Who are you? Were you the main villain? Were you just the secret villain? Were you the guy that just came out of nowhere? Why are you here? Why are you fighting that dude? Ahh...I want to know! It looks cool, but I just don't know what's happening. So sad.

Also, it is confusing to know who was the good guy or bad guy in story. I kept watching it and didn't know what was going on and didn't feel anything towards the end, but confused and rip offed. It was never told who was the "REAL Villain" and it will never will be now. One of the main story lines was the Demon King and he like an anti-hero, but maybe, he was the villain really at the end? I don't know. I can't come to a conclusion on a show 8 times fast-forward. lol

The ending doesn't make any sense. Since, we don't know anything. How could it? It's like one minute, you're in the middle of the season and the next show your in the middle half, then the next show your at the ending. So many things weren't explained and I had no clue to what to get out of it. I could see how they got the happy ending, probably, but I don't really know if that's was supposed to be a happy ending or not. I'm just pissed!

This series could had easily been 5 stars. No problem. It just never had the chance to developed into it. Good for people that already know the story, otherwise, stay far-far away from this one. You'll be just pissed at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series, hopefully the BD's will be good April 22 2011
By A_Blind_Man - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Well I've seen the entire series from dvd/television re-encodes so I can't exactly comment on the video quality of the blu-rays, should be superior to both though.

Overall I thought the series starts off well enough, quite a few laughs throughout the first 4-5 episodes. Also the pacing is good during this time, moving the plot along but not forcing it all out. However, something so good will never last...

After this point it seemed as if the staff realized that "OH S**T, we only have 12 episodes!" and so tried to run through a lot of plot very quickly. resulting in an almost 'jumpy' feel toward the end, and it also seemed that they didn't have as much animation budget as they wanted (or it was all used up on breasts, not that I'm complaining).

very nice OP music and the soundtrack has some really decent songs in it. the ED is tolerable but the animation for it seemed out of place (maybe a result of animation budget deficit, who knows).

TL;DR: Its a decent harem/ecchi series, definitely quite funny, plot felt a bit rushed, and animation seemed a bit shy at points

overall: worth a watch

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fanboy's Dream, A Demon King's Nightmare June 16 2011
By Hung Nguyen - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Demon King Daimao, (also known as Ichiban Ushiro No Dai Mao) follows the high school life of Akuto Sai, in a world in which magic not only exists, it's a normal way of life. Quiet, kind-hearted and unassuming, he hopes to become a member of the highest order of the church. However, to his horror, he finds out that he is destined to become the next Demon King. As a result, he has beautiful girls wanting to marry him or kill him. Sometimes, it's both.

The series is a short one at 12 episodes, but the storyline is quite enjoyable. Fanservice is pretty standard for a harem series, comedy peaks a lot, and the ending does leave you wanting for more. One of the biggest surprises about this release is the fact that is has an English dub. Considering Sentai Filmworks penchant for subbed-only formats, this is quite a change.

For anime fans of harem series, this is a must to own.

2.0 out of 5 stars All original bluray content is missing on the bluray Jan. 31 2012
By Potato - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Most disappointing anime title I have ever owned.

let's put aside any review of the storyline, characters or content of the actual show. I am not here to give another review of 'will you like daimaoh?' I am here to talk about the bluray and the bluray released in america.

Daimaoh was originally licensed for streaming by crunchyroll in America. In fact, you can legally watch it right now, all 12 episodes, online at the crunchyroll website or if you have an anime network subscription (they are owned by sentai films who is selling this bluray)watch it there too.

So that brings the question why would anyone want to own this mediocre show that can be watched online for free? Well the bluray should be better quality right? uncensored extra content not available elsewhere?

The japanese bluray content included the 12 episodes plus 6 never before seen specials called Another Extra Daimaoh specials. It also included music videos, original commercials and bonus CDs if you bought the limited editions. So we should get all the same on the North American release, right?

No, that's not right, we don't get crap. Oh wait we got some advertisements for future releases. oh, and the original show is uncensored, like 3 scenes had the little foggy clouds removed. That is what you paid 40$ for, was that.

You know, sometimes I just don't understand. I have been doing my best to support the anime industry for more than twenty years now but sometimes I wonder who am I working hard for? certainly it's not for me, I just purchased an authentic copy of a bluray and half the content is missing.

Maybe the Japanese companies expect us all to be pirates? Am I supposed to pay for half the bluray now and download the rest? Or is it both companies just trying to cash and run as much as possible? I understand the world is changing and the Japanese industry needs to protect reverse importation and Sentai films needs to keep prices low but omitting content, 'especially new never before seen content' is like going to mcdonalds and getting half a cheeseburger.

As for me, I am done. I will not pay full price for another bluray. Interestingly enough, the exact same thing is happening with sora no otoshimono. It's a good thing I did not get around to buying the first season before they announced that. I hate to say it, but the Japanese licensing companies need to learn a very hard lesson and sadly, it's going to be the American ones who end up taking all the damage up front.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good anime, Ok release. April 28 2013
By Dew - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
This release of Daimao in my opinion is very modest. It contains all of the episodes with minimal extras to offer.

It comes on two disks, with a different background image for each main menu. Also, there is no music on the main menu. Not really a big deal I suppose, but would have been nice.

The extras include production sketches (drawings of characters with a soundtrack playing in the back), clean opening and closing animation (the intro and ending with no credits over the images) and trailers for other Sentai releases.

So, as far as extra meat on the isn't anything too special. But, depending on how much of a fan you may be, this could mean nothing to you.

The picture quality is awesome. It has a very sharp look to it and often times very bright coloring. It looks great and the sound is also very good. One thing I did find odd is that this is considered an "uncensored version". I first saw this show on netflix, which after watching it again with this release, I saw no difference. My assumption is that a lot of breast had been edited out of the censored version. There are two scenes that depict frontal genital nudity (both male and female) that are still blocked on this version. In all likely hood that was how the show was actually made, but for those that know which scenes I'm talking about, they are in fact still censored in this.

Despite the modest features of this product, the show is very humorous. If you've seen it before and are considering owning it, this is the way to go. It really does look great. Though if you haven't seen it, I recommend watching it on netflix or somewhere first. The story starts great but ends up leaving something to be desired. All in all, I'm happy with the purchase.
