    I liked the show. But the story point of “supernatural beings and humans cannot be happy together because they will never grow old together” is kind of a worn out trope, and I don’t think it can stand as the center conflict of a relationship. Kobayashi didn’t explore the theme any more in depth than, let’s say, Spice and Wolf, so the foundation of the story is kind of weak.

    Because yes, every time the show mentioned Kobayashi’s mortality I was thinking of Spice and Wolf. And I was disappointed that we didn’t get to explore the theme further.

      That’s true. I don’t think that conflict was supposed to be a prominent, recurring one in Maid Dragon though. It was an issue, and it was brought up again for the finale to create some drama, but at heart the show’s just a comfy inter-species slice-of-life. Its focus is on cute dragons doing cute things.

      I can see why it’d be more of a thing in something like Spice and Wolf, where Holo’s relationship with Lawrence and their journey together was what the series was primarily about.
