After a year since the announcement of The Misfit of Demon King Academy season 2, when all hopes were lost regarding its return, the staff of the anime finally updated the fans with a broadcast date for season 2 on Aug 10, 2022, along with a cheeky text that reads “Did you think it wouldn’t air?”.
If not a specific date, it has been revealed that The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 will be released sometime in 2023.
A key visual was also revealed to commemorate the announcement.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History’s Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School with His Descendants, also known simply as The Misfit of Demon King Academy or Demon King Academy, is a Japanese light novel series written by Shu and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma.
The series originally began as an web novel in April 2017 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shōsetsuka ni Narō when it was later acquired by ASCII Media Works, which officially began to publish it in March 2018.
A manga adaptation by Kayaharuka was serialized online from July 2018 to July 2021, when it ended due to the author’s death. An anime television series adaptation by Silver Link aired from July to September 2020.
The plot of The Misfit of Demon King Academy is described as:
After 2,000 years of countless wars and strife, the demon king Anos Voldigoad made a deal with the human hero, Kanon, to sacrifice his own life to ensure peace could flourish. Reincarnating 2,000 years later, Anos finds that royal demons now harshly rule over lower class hybrid demons in a society that values Anos’s pureblood descendants over the demons who interbred with other species, such as humans and spirits. Finding that magic as a whole has begun to decline and his descendants weaker as a result of the peace he created, Anos, now technically a hybrid himself, decides to reclaim his former title of Demon King, but first, he must graduate from the Demon King Academy where he is labeled a total misfit.
