The Misfit of Demon Academy Season 2 Set for 2023Good news for fans of The Misfit of Demon King Academy: the second season of the anime is set for next year.

That’s the word from the official Twitter account for the series.

That news comes with a fresh piece of key art for the upcoming season.

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.

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

Here’s how Square Enix Manga describes the first volume of the manga:

Anoth, the Demon King of Tyranny, has defeated humans, spirits, and gods alike. But even demon kings get tired of all the fighting sometimes! Hoping for a more peaceful life, Anoth decides to reincarnate himself. When he wakes two thousand years later, though, he finds the world has become too peaceful—his descendants have grown weak and magic is in serious decline.

Intending to reclaim his rightful place, he enrolls in Demon King Academy, where he finds that his magical power is off the charts. Literally. And because they can’t measure his power, the faculty and other students regard Anoth as a misfit. With the support of Misha, the one student he manages to befriend, the misfit (Demon King) begins his climb up the demon ranks!
