J-Novel licensed Death's Daughter and the Ebony Blade, which sounds almost identical enough to this story that it borders on plagiarism... So we'll probably never get this one. Oh well.
Hmmm I only read the beginning of Ebony Blade but those two are fairly different. Only because we have two female MC and a death god doesn't mean it is a carbon copy. Oh and by the tone of what I read I see Ebony blade more as a happy go lucky kind of thing (I remind that I did not read it fully till now) and you can consider "the Girl who ate a Death God" as dark fantasy.
This is a really good series and after watching the anime i realised there is no manga and the LN's are behind the anime. It's a series definitely worth watching and reading if the LNs ever get translated. I would definitely purchase a LN if one ever gets translated
I would really love to see Maouyuu Maou Yuusha get licensed. I really enjoyed watching the anime, and if I get to relive that enjoyment through the novels, then so be it. Considering how much I liked Log Horizon's LN, I have no doubt I'll enjoy this one too.
People says it has its similarities to Spice and Wolf (which is true), but it also offers something unique to it.
