The story of “Maoyu - Archenemy & Hero” follows the journey of Hero, who after storming the castle of the Demon King, whom mankind has fought the past 15 years, is surprised to learn that the king is actually a queen, and she has a proposition for him. Because a sudden end to the war would create a power vacuum that could lead to civil war, the queen asks Hero to work with her in order to bring democracy and advanced technology to the humans and ensure lasting prosperity for both sides. Now Hero must decide, is this a deal with the devil, or can the good guy and the bad girl actually bring peace to world.

“Maoyu - Archenemy & Hero” will be available through select digital outlets soon and a home video release is also planned, however no official release date has been given by Sentai Filmworks at this time.
