The Anime Maoyuu Maou Yuusha will Begin Airing in January 2013

The popular story Maoyuu Maou Yuusha is becoming an anime! The anime will begin broadcasting in January 2013 on Tokyo MX, TVK, Sun TV, KBS, Gifu-chan, Mie TV, and BS Animax.

The story started as an improvised novel on the Japanese textboard 2channel. It was written by volunteers and posted to the site from September to November 2009. The story, which is a fantasy drama written using nothing but conversations, became very popular among net users.

The movement to commercialize Maoyuu Maou Yuusha was very quick. In December 2010, it was published as a novel titled Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - “Be Mine, Hero!” “I Refuse”, which has sold more than 450,000 copies. The story went on to become a manga, drama CD, and web radio show, and now it’s finally becoming an anime.

On November 6, 2012, a press conference introducing the anime was broadcast on Nico Nico Douga and Animate TV. Over 30,000 people tuned in to watch the press conference, where the voice actors for Hero and Demon Queen, Jun Fukuyama and Ami Koshimizu, were introduced along with the PV for the anime.
