Today we’re gonna explore more about My Wife Is a Demon Queen, the manga or the anime series, as the series begins with an eye-opening recap.
Listen up folks! I’m spending the rest of my days in the company of the demon queen!
A typical, powerless man protagonist is given the responsibility of watching over the demon queen Isabella after she has fallen. Because her magical resources have been depleted, Isabella has no choice except to disguise herself as a mortal and deny her royal rank. In a medieval fantasy realm, evil masterminds are hatching a conspiracy to topple a powerful demon queen from her throne.
Although the manhwa is currently ongoing, the material is enough to make at least 24 episodes (currently 370 chapters). They can at least adapt till the Empire Cup tournament as the first season. There is a possibility that the fights will be in multiple episodes (like the fight between Xiang ye and Rennes ). It might be 2-3 episodes.
My Wife Is a Demon Queen Review and Recap of Released Chapters
Let’s see what the selling point is. “Story” is your generic isekai. Nothing new and original here. In the first few chapters,there’s already a hint that the MC is the so-called chosen one in prophecy. Many stories contain cliches.Maybe he is a reincarnation of God or a descendant of God the creator. No originality. Then in recent chapters,there is also a hint of time travelling. The first major arc is the tournament arc,also another cliche, and it’s too long and dragging.
So even if the story has no originality,maybe the demon queen is great. Again,nope. She is another generic cliche,a tsundere. Not to mention she is not a pure girl(other males get to grope her,so much for being a demon queen,more like a demon whore where every male gets to grope her),so not a good waifu material. There really isn’t any selling point to this manhua.
This manhua did not do anything new that other Japanese manga have never done. You are not going to miss anything if you skip this.
What can you see in “my wife is a demon queen”. Well you have the classic isekai with a normal human being who is transfered to another world because of a ring. That seems cliche and you are thinking about an overpowered MC with a hidden power because he’s the incarnation of i dont know what. That’s not it.
MC is just a normal boy, he won’t shine with magic spells nor with swordmanship. In fact he has no magika at all unlike the demon queen who’s perfect in both. MC will become what they call smiths and craftmanship. To summarize MC will draw and by thinking about the mechanism of what he is drawing, he can create objects. The system of classes is logical and easy to understand. It permits to create some powers without forcing the reader to ask himself “how ? I cant understand what is this shit, how powers work is this ??” like you can have in a bunch of bad manga about powers like that.
MC wont shine with his physical abilities but with his brain. He will quickly create a bunch of things to make his life easier and to fight of course. I love the concept and it creates some good fights with reflexion and not only the cliche of the one with the biggest kamehameha wins. The start is not revealer of the story. The arc of the tournament is slow and quite boring, I was scrolling quite faster to overtake the fights with secondary characters. As you can guess, this arc is meant to introduce every characters. It’s slow, quite boring but necessary because all those characters will a role to play. Of course not everything is to throw away. There was some good moment and MC’s fights were godlike in my opinion. After the tournament, the story becomes more interesting. In this manhwa, you will also find some good reference for the gundam saga or LoL for instance. Always refreshing to see. The comedy was not that bad either.
Regarding the characters, I like a bunch of them. MC is really good because it’s not the cliche shounen airhead. He’s smart and wants to help the girl he likes. The queen is very strong and quite tsundere but she’s cute in some moments and you will quickly understand the bond they share. Even if the romance is quite slow paced, you will have some symbolic moments that will show you that the MC is very important for the queen and I really enjoyed those moments. We can also talk about Eli who’s basically a muscled airhead. He can be quite insightful in some moment and I like him too because he’s refreshing for the story. That’s it for the characters I prefer the most.
Let’s talk about the art. It’s simply beautiful as hell. Not as beautiful as solo leveling but you have some great drawing during fights, great eyes, great girls too (lol).
To conclude, I recomend to read if you like smart MC, fighting shounen with a bit of romance. You can have some mature moments as well, it’s not only a childish shounen manhwa that’s why I like that much this manhwa without being a huge fan of shounen like manga/hwa.
The recipe is simple but my wife is a demon queen does it very well with enough variation to not be repetitive with other manga/manhwa.
Where To Read or Watch My Wife Is a Demon Queen?
For manga fans, you can read My Wife Is a Demon Queen series on Toomics or its official website. While anime fans can watch this series on IMDB, Crunchyroll, or Netflix, it all depends on your preference. But for me, I do recommend you watch this series on Crunchyroll in a legal way.
This manhua is really good to read. The main character is weak, but he uses his knowledge from past lives to make him strong. If you read this manhua, I recommend you watch the anime too, because some of the stories in the anime are not in this manhua.
