A new trailer for Maouyuu Maou Yuusha (Archenemy and Hero) started streaming and it features the vocal talents of the seiyuu involved.



Synopsis

Humanity and demons have been at war for 15 years. Our hero Yuusha overcomes a long and treacherous journey to infiltrate the demons’ land and get to the castle of Maou the Demon Queen. His job is to put an end to the war but he gets separated from his three companions before he actually gets to the castle. However the queen of demons argues that through the war humanity has become united and forced to improve their lives, technology, and society and if the war were to stop then humanity would turn in on itself in a civil war. The hero is swayed by her words and agrees to work with the Dark Lady.
