Comment :
I picked up this manga when it suddenly gained popularity on /a/ last year. It was a pretty entertaining manga, mainly because it focused on pathetic main character who is an otaku girl. There are some awkward situations found in this manga which probably familiar to some of us (not me) and I always think that watching her trapped in that awkward situation is amusing. I am such an heartless person.

Synopsis :
After a long and treacherous journey, our Hero finally arrives at the Dark Lady’s castle only to find himself being asked for help. The Hero explains how the war that the demons have brought upon the humans have killed thousands and put more in misery. The queen of demons however argues that this war has made the human society band together as one and showed empirical evidence how it has increased population, increased production, boosted economy and improved society overall. Furthermore, she explains to the Hero that ending this war will result in a civil war that will produce more bloodshed than there ever was. The Hero, convinced that the only way to bring peace, relatively speaking, is to join forces with the Dark Lady, agrees to help with her plans!

My friend introduced me to this manga a while ago when this manga still had 3 chapters. I immediately fall in love with it, because this manga has it all: charming characters, cool action, cute romance, funny comedy and some serious economic stuff. I'm not surprised if one day this manga will get an anime treatment.
