The battle turns to the favor of the humans because the demons were expecting a naval battle.
Both sides retreat by the end of the day. A messenger informs the generals that reinforcements from Gate City are making their way towards the demons.

Certainly a livelier episode than what we’ve had in the past. This episode spends less time explaining economic concepts and more on what is actually happening in the story. Which is a great change of pace for this show. Also, finally the Winter King is directly involved with the main cast of characters. It would be interesting to see how things will play out from here. Will he keep his prominence or will he slowly fade to irrelevance now that his problem has been resolved. With Maou out of her mansion, will we see the maids again? This episode really has changed the face of the story a lot. Also, noting the little tension between Female Knight and Maou. Sparks are gonna fly now that Hero’s back in the human world. I still think it’s a damn shame barely any of Hero’s adventures in the Demon World were shown but that’s all behind us now. What’s still here, though, is Maou’s utter (or should I say udder?) lack of sense of urgency towards the war. She is still too collected even when she’s already right in the face of battle. Ah well, it’s not really clear where the story is heading from here. Hey, that rhymes! There’s still a couple things that should be taken care of before Maou can go and say that the war is over. There’s the Alliance who are still looming between being neutral and evil. Again, not “Mwahahahaha!” evil but evil in the sense that they want the war to continue for their profit. There’s also the deal with the Mage from Hero’s old party. I’m not sure if she’s still supposed to be lost or that’s been resolved in Hero’s journey that was never shown. She looks like an important character so I’m guessing that that’s not the last we’ve seen of her. Alrighty then, guess I have to wait ’til next week to see what happens next in Maoyuu.
