The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 Confirmed
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 was confirmed by their official Twitter handle. It said that season 2 will be happening. The tweet is in Japanese and hence many don’t know about the confirmation as of yet.
Anyways, when season 1 had ended its 143 episodes run much thought that was it for the show. There won’t be a season 2, but to everyone’s surprise, the anime returned and we will soon see our favorite characters back on screen.
Here’s the tweet
“Did you think that” The Misfit of Demon King Academy “was the last? You should wait for a while. “tweet translation
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 Release date?
As you saw in the tweet nothing was given in terms of the release date. And hence we don’t anything about it yet. But expect some mo0re news regarding this issue to come out once the production starts.
Judging by the release date of Season 1 the second season can ar at the same time, i.e in July. This is pure speculation nothing official yet.
Just read the manga!
As we said earlier in the article, the anime is an adaptation of a light novel. So technically you can start reading the manga if you can’t wait for the show to arrive. The show might pull a Tokyo ghoul i.e it might go anime original, but we don’t see a point in the studio doing that.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Plot
MyAnimeList describes the show as follows
In the distant past, a war between humans and demons brought about widespread chaos and bloodshed. To put an end to this seemingly endless conflict, Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future.
In preparation for their king’s return, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with determining Anos’ identity when he reawakens. He reincarnates two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon learns that the level of magic in the world has drastically waned during his absence. Moreover, when he enrolls at the academy to reclaim his rightful title, he finds out that demonkind remembers him differently.
His personality, his deeds, and even his legacy are all falsified—masked beneath the name of an impostor. This “lack” of common knowledge renders him the academy’s outlier—a misfit never before seen in history.
Despite these drawbacks, Anos remains unfazed. As he sets out to uncover those altering his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that their ruler has finally returned.
