Following a first part that was beset with delays, The Misfit of Demon King Academy II is now preparing to return with its second cour. A new trailer, visual and cast additions made their way online along with confirmation that the series will be back on air in Japan starting on April 12, 2024.

The new opening theme has also been revealed as “Maou” by BURNOUT SYNDROMES. As for the cast, the latest to join are Nao Toyama as Arcana, Toshihiko Seki as Ahid Alovo Agartz and Aoi Yuki as Goddess of Creation Militia. Check out the new trailer and visual below.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy is based on a series of light novels by Shu, and also has a manga adaptation. The first season of the anime ran from July to September of 2020. After being taken off air due to delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic early last year, the first part of the second season returned from the first episode starting on July 8, 2023.

The second season has the cast and staff back in their respective roles, minus Tatsuhisa Suzuki, who was replaced by Yuichiro Umehara.

Crunchyroll currently streams the series and describes it like so:

Anos Voldigord was a tyrannical Demon King that eradicated humans, spirits, and even the gods, but became bored of eternal warfare and reincarnated with dreams of a peaceful world. However, what awaited him in reincarnation after 2000 years were descendants who became too weak after being accustomed to peace, and all sorts of magic that deteriorated to the extreme.

Anos enters Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not see through his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit.
