Maoyu, or The Archenemy and Hero, is a anime series based on the similarly titled light novel series. The series had a 12 episode run and was directed by Takeo Takahashi and was produced by adult animation production studio Arms Corporation. The series was released in Japan in 2013 between January 5th to March 30th.

One very peculiar attribute of the show is the lack of any character names, either first, middle or last. All characters, even the protagonists, are referred to only by their titles and occupations.

The story revolves around a human-demon struggle wherein a brave hero, simply known as Hero, who is the greatest warrior in the human world, sets off to quell the conflict by slaying the demon king. The demon king turns out to be a queen, however, and is called, simply, The Queen, Queen, or Demon Queen. She, instead of fighting, tells Hero that they should join forces and become allies, since she dislikes the conflict just as much as he. Indeed the demons in general want the war to end but can not find a way to do. And so Hero agrees and together, human and demon set out to restore balance to the world, for both humans and demons alike.

Maoyu is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (12 episodes). The series first aired on January 4, 2013.
