Demon King Daimao: scantily clad wine

White Bastille Day Greeting Photo Collage(5)

Official summary: “This story of “love, magic, and battles” revolves around Akuto Sai, a boy who aims to become part of his country’s highest order of magicians and contribute to society as one of its clergy. On the day he is admitted into the Constant Magical Academy, his aptitude test predicts the following: “Future Occupation: Demon King.” Thus begins his severe school life in which he is resented by his studious female class head, desired by a girl with mysterious powers, and guarded by a beautiful female android”via

Our pairing: I have to admit this one had me a little nervous. Within the first ten minuets there were many scantily clad shots of anime girls and I thought to myself ‘oh no its gonna be that type of anime” light on substance but heavy on exploitation. I’m happy to report by the end I was pleasantly won over. Make no mistake about it there are plenty of exploitative shots but there is real story. Funny, against the grain and will not be for everyone’s pallet we pair this with none other than boxed wine. Depending on the social circle you run in boxed wine will give you a light glare or scathing condemnation but we’re okay with it. This is a judgment free zone.

Rating: Two Star/ Boxed anime: Some look down on you. You’re not the best wine, you’re not the best anime but you get the job done.

Got a pairing suggestion? we’d love to hear it!

  1. Box wine, gradually warming and souring? That fits. I liked the first 2/3 of the show, particularly when considering the Greenette is almost certainly pranking him with “fainting/off” faking it. In that context, she and some of the other characters have a good time fooling with the guy. I didn’t like the actual plot in the last 3rd, but it was plot and they finished it.

    This show is structurally similar to Infinite Stratos in that same way. IS deserves a pairing with a nice spicy Zinfandel from Lodi, particularly when you realize that the guy is the brother of the inventor’s best friend, and the crush of her little sister who is too uptight. Pranking both by making that hero the ONLY one who can pilot is 2 birds, 1 stone.
