The Misfit of Demon King Academy is a Summer 2020 anime that concluded its Season 1 in September 2020. The story remains incomplete, and fans are eager for Season 2, where they would see the next opponent that Anos would face in his journey to reclaim his lost recognition.
In the Misfit of Demon King Academy, the war between humans and demons caused both sides to suffer several deaths, loss, and bloodshed. Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly gave up his life, hoping for the war to end and harmony between both the kingdoms.
After his demise, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, tasked with determining the King’s identity after the reawakening. Anos reincarnates after two millennia only to discover that the level of magic had increased! What’s more, he was no longer looked up to, and his legacy was falsified. In this new era, Demon King Anos was nothing more than a misfit.
Season 2 would continue this epic story of a powerful demon King who sacrificed himself for a peaceful future.
1. Release Date
Season 2 of The Misfit of Demon King Academy has been announced but no specific date is confirmed yet. Season 1 of this series premiered in July 2020 as a part of the Summer 2020 anime line up.
We can expect The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 to release by mid-late 2022.
Silver Link, the studio responsible for production, has created sequels for many fantasy and isekai anime like Kokoro Connect and Strike the Blood. So this sequel shouldn’t be a problem.
2. What To Expect From Season 2
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 1 adapted the first 3 volumes from the original light novel. There are 8 volumes in total, and the novel is still ongoing, so there is a lot of material available for Season 2.
Season 1 ended with a battle between Lay and Anos. After Lay reveals his reasons for rewriting the history following the Demon King’s death, Anos challenges him to a duel. Anos deliberately loses to him to stop humans from hating them. Towards the conclusion, Eleonore becomes Anos’ magic, everyone reunites and return home to the Demon world.
Season 2 will have Anos, Sasha, and Misha investigating the true nature of the current Demon King, Avos Dilhevia. A sinister plot by the gods is also in the making behind the scenes.
