O.K. I've been watching a couple of really bad and mediocre anime during the past couple of weeks and it has been abit tiring, stuff like Excel Saga and Sky Crawlers were truly awful and I almost gave up until I found this amusing anime series. The plot of the show seemed pretty interesting to me. A transfer student (Sai Akuto) comes to a magical academy and aspires to be a top ranked grand priest who will be able to make the world a better place. Ironically, he is deemed to be the future Demon King that will bring death and chaos to the world. Kinda the opposite of what he was looking for, but this is where all of the conflicts in the story stem from. Also, since this is a type of harem anime, many girls try to get with Akuto and is another source of conflict. In my opinion, it was a great show until the end. It had many things like action, comedy, ecchi, magic, story, and good characters. I'm not going to go into all of the things I like about the show, but there were a few things that had me scratching my head. The ending came waaaaaay to fast. I felt that the story was progressing at a fair pace and then around the end of episode 9 it started to get crazy. I honestly felt the ending was incredibly rushed. From what happens at the end of episode 9 to the end of 12, I felt that it really could have been a 24 episode show. By doing that, they would have been able to end the show without it having to be rushed. At this point, you probably think that I hated the show. It's actually the opposite. I really enjoyed the show very much and felt that I got my money's worth. It was a fun and entertaining show and I hope there is a meaningful OVA (instead of some fluff ova that nothing happens) to wrap things up. It was just the ending that I didn't like. The story became too complicated too fast. But overall the anime was hilarious and had some great moments that was worth checking out.

May i start by saying this is definetly not for minors, the show contains several ecchi styled themes on and throughout the anime.
Now thats out the way onto the show.
The story line to the show is actually really good, i watched this in doubt as im not the biggest on looking for ecchi but i was very impressed to see the show takes a great play on its story. The concept work of the whole events was smartly played out and you can assure along side the cute girl's and the tough time at a new school it is actually full of laughs.
The show is actually halerious, i feel halerious is a understatement however, it truly is comical and is sure to bring you down crying with laughter, but as mentioned alot of jokes are rather adult style theme's so do take caution.
Is it Ecchi? i suppose i have to say yes, the unfortunate luck of how magic can role can maybe 'accidentaly' result in one or two girls missing there shirts, and one when people like to strip of to turn invisible you can assure there i alot of ecchi involved. That being said it does appeal to ecchi fans but for them (like myself) who arnt to fussed about ecchi (or who dont mind it time to time) regurdless if you dislike it, this might be feeling like something to pass on but i wouldnt knock it so fast. The story is still very strong and very gets you hooked in it really well + the jokes are fun and enjoyable
Is it rushed? Everyone will tell you no matter how amazing it is it does feel rushed near the end, the final 4 episodes to jump stright to the point, some say its confusing but i have never personaily found anyone who didnt understand it (they just all feel it jumped into some stuff a little to quick) so yes the ending is rushed, does this effect the show?

HASH(0x958e3bb8) out of 5 stars Felt kind short and rushed! 23 Aug. 2011
By S. Der - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x931ffc30) out of 5 stars Good series, hopefully the BD's will be good 23 April 2011
By A_Blind_Man - Published on Amazon.com
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

HASH(0x930c0d2c) out of 5 stars A Fanboy's Dream, A Demon King's Nightmare 16 Jun. 2011
By Hung Nguyen - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x93900c30) out of 5 stars All original bluray content is missing on the bluray 31 Jan. 2012
By Potato - Published on Amazon.com
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.
HASH(0x937350fc) out of 5 stars Good anime, Ok release. 29 April 2013
By Dew - Published on Amazon.com
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 release..it 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.
