The Misfit of Demon King Academy Manga on Hiatus as Artist’s Health Worsens

Imagine being the most powerful demon lord ever, but you find out that the future is not what you thought it would be when you get reincarnated. The Misfit of Demon King Academy is the tale of such a demon lord.

The protagonist, Anos Voldigoad, though reincarnated as a low-rank demon, is still omnipotent. From tackling the shady stuff that’s going on to shocking people with his powers, Anos handles it all without breaking a sweat!

Unfortunately, the manga adaptation of The Misfit of Demon King Academy will be going on an indefinite hiatus due to the mangaka’s health.

The artist of the manga adaptation of the series, Kaya Haruka, has been hospitalized due to pancreatic cancer. Haruka was diagnosed with it back in 2019, and the condition now seems to be serious.

The mangaka will now be giving full attention to rest and recovery and will try to resume work as soon as possible.

This is not the first time that artists and creators have gone on a break due to extreme health conditions. Unfortunately, things like this happen a lot and remind us how the staff and mangakas work hard daily. 

There are times when the artists and writers don’t even get a break for the sake of completing the chapter, and we get sketchy artwork and stories. This is highly unjust towards the people who put in their hard work for the fans and can’t even get some rest to recover.

The manga is the adaptation of the light novel of the same name. The latest chapter of the manga gave us the epic showdown between Anos Voldigoad and Lay Glanzudlii. 

Both of them were seen giving it their all while deforming the landscape around them. But, unfortunately, the chapter left us at a cliffhanger about the winner right before it was about to end.

The series is a must-watch as Anos is the kind of protagonist you can’t help but go crazy about.

Watch The Misfit of Demon King Academy on:

This news is just another reminder that a person just like you is behind the content you enjoy and that their well-being matters just the same.

Hoping for Haruka to make a speedy recovery and get back on track after a complete rest!
