“MaoYuu” Spoils Everything In The ED

Jan 13, 2013 @ 12:24 CDT

A discovery by tactical otaku research consortium, 2ch, has found that the hit anime of the season, a romantic fantasy adventure by the name “Maoyuu Maou Yuusha“, spoils the entire story in the end sequence.

Series make hints at future events or background details in the opening or closing credits on occasion – yet Maoyuu doesn’t just give a few details, it retells the story to surprising precision, with every event and turn accounted for. The ED of Maoyuu consists of slides with classic storytelling themes, and accompanying text which was perceived as filler typography added simply for visual effect – yet it turns out it wasn’t gibberish after all as an otaku has decoded it into plain English, and it truly tells of what lies ahead.

  • I’ve expected that those inscription have an actual meaning, but to see someone really decode it…
    Did that person solve it with the help of the light novel?
    Maybe the source material have a guide to read MaoYuu’s literary.

    • Seven says:

      That’s possible, although maybe the author decrypted it himself – he was originally a 2channer after all.

    • alexander says:

      It’s just a substitution cipher, which is easily solvable, computationally or otherwise. You don’t need the LN, just an English dictionary.

      Still, kudos to whoever took the time.

      • Seven says:

        Not to say you’re incorrect, though I was thinking mikimikuminami was implying the light novel had the glyphs somewhere within it with the proper English letters.

  • zchronos says:

    THIS IS GREAT, I knew it was not just random symbols. I love Maoyuu.

  • triton6783 says:

    I think that it is neat and clever that they didn’t just use gibberish, but way to give away the ending to the unexpecting few who read this.

    • Seven says:

      Not sure how they are “unexpecting” since it’s doubtful to be in any place that doesn’t have it obviously labelled.

      For instance, no one will know what the gibberish in the ED is unless they read this – and this article is titled pretty obviously. Not to mention, the text is in such a font, it’s not easily legible unless you were purposefully reading it.

  • Anonymous says:

    now if someone make a font out of this.

  • niko says:

    It’s great that Maoyoo keeps surpassing most expectations with pure awesomeness and depth. I haven’t read any of the translations to avoid spoilers, but once the show has finished i’ll come back and read them.

  • avatar blackstar719 says:

    I agree with miko, i’m really enjoying this show so i’ll try not to read this to avoid spoilers

    • avatar sjck says:

      Same here , i was planning on reading but!!!! I love this story so far; don’t want to ruin it.

  • Anonymous says:

    For those who haven’t caught up to the latest novel or manga release, it is a major spoiler of things to come. As surprised as I am by someone decoding the script, it is even more surprising that the developers took time to add it into the anime.

  • neodarksun says:

    I actually those would have meaning and was just waiting for someone to decode it, like I always do.

  • lucarion says:

    I knew what those symbols meant…but to see someone actually take the time to do this…I’m impressed.
