Kyo Kara Maoh! Season 2 Box Set DVD Review

When the "first season" of Kyo Kara Maoh! ended, Yuri and his crew were finishing off an encounter with the human kingdom of Big Cimaron and coming to grips with Conrad’s defection to the enemy. Note that I put "first season" in quotation marks, as the first season actually does not end until two episodes into this boxset, regardless of how the sets are actually marked. These two episodes put this story arc to rest. While I was mostly non-plussed about Kyo Kara Maoh! for most of the first season, I did feel that it started to pick up with this storyline; the second season continued this trend, and I enjoyed it far more than the first. With three of the Demon Boxes in their possession, and Conrad back in the fold, Yuri sets about finding the final Box in an effort to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. After a few false starts, Murata is informed by The Great One that the final box is actually on another world. Despite having an obvious answer at hand, it takes them a while to deduce that other world is actually Yuri's home: Earth. Read More Click Me!

Kyo Kara Maoh! Season 1 Box Set DVD Review

Kyo Kara Maoh! is the tale of an everyday young man who is magically transported to an alternate world where he is a demon king. Though this might easily be seen as the setup for a serious drama, its penchant for wacky humor, unusual situations, and pretty boys doing pretty boy things actually make it more of a light hearted romp. Yuri Shibuya is a kind young man with a strong sense of justice and an eye more towards baseball rather than academics. But while he may have a strong sense of justice, he does not actually have the strength to back it up, and his life is irrevocably changed because of it. One day, on his way home from school, he sees a group of bullies picking on a former classmate of his, Ken Murata. When he distracts the bullies, Murata is able to escape, and the bullies turn their attention on Yuri, opting to shove his head down a toilet. Read More Click Me!
