Misfit Of Demon King Academy Story

Misfit Of Demon King Academy (shortened from the very long Japanese title Mao Gakuin no Futekigosha ~Shijo Saikyo no Mao no Shiso, Tensei Shite Shison-tachi no Gakko e Kayou) began as a successful light novel series by author Shu and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma.

The series takes place in a world where a war between humans and demons has created a schism between the two factions.

The Demon King, Anos Voligoad, sacrificed his life, hoping the world would heal from the conflict.

The demons, in turn, created a Demon Academy, a school for training demons and identifying King Anos when he is eventually reincarnated.

Almost two millennia later, the King is reincarnated, but the world is different than he remembers.

Technology and magic have changed, and his people don’t recognize him as the great Demon King!

Practically alone in this new world, Anos is labeled the “misfit” of the academy for being a fish out of water.

Anos takes on the challenge and journeys into the world to become the Demon King he once was.

Misfit Of A Demon King is a highly successful light novel series, with 12 novels published as of 2022. The novel is licensed by J-Novel Club for North America.

The series was adapted into a manga by artist Kayaharuka from 2018 to 2021. Unfortunately, the manga adaptation was canceled after the artist’s death in 2021.

The anime adaptation, produced by studio SILVER LINK  (who are known for Baka & Test), began airing in mid-2020.

Masafumi Tamura directs the series; Tamura is known for his animation work on multiple series, including Katanagatari.
