What is the plotline of the anime?

Even demon kings can get bored sometimes, although their hunger for destruction is endless! Anoth, who kneels before humans, elementals, and even gods, reincarnates today with a desire for a more peaceful life. After 2000 years, the king has to go to the same school with his great-grandchildren, namely the Demon King Academy, and his life will not be as easy as he had imagined. In this age when the last vestiges of magic are about to end, no one will even grasp the true power of Anoth. On the other hand, graduating from this school will not be easy for Anoth.

Light Novel

As you know, The Misfit of Demon King Academy’s anime is based on a light novel series. Shu’s light novel series, which began airing in March 2018, is published in Japan by ASCII Media Works. The last volume of the series, which reached 11 volumes in total, was published on March 10, 2022, and the series is still ongoing. The 12th volume of The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novel will be published in two parts, and the first part will meet the readers on August 10, 2022.

In the first season, 3 volumes of the light novel were adapted into anime, and it is expected that a close amount of source material will be adapted to the anime in a second season. It seems that if things go well, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t see more seasons. What we mean by ‘things are going well’ is popularity and revenue from exclusive distributors and disc sales.

Disc sales and popularity play a big role in renewing an anime for a new season because animes are for-profit productions. The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime’s first season sold six volumes, with an average sales figure of 2,355 units. Although this sales figure is below the targets, anime has a very high audience on online streaming platforms. Our popularity metrics are above average, but it needs to do better with season two to secure a third season.
