Kadokawa has announced that the second season of the Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e (The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History’s Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School with His Descendants) anime will premiere in 2023. No other new information was shared. The second season will be split into two parts, it is being produced at Silver Link, the studio that animated the first season.
The anime is based on Shu’s light novel, the series was also adapted into a manga series by Square Enix but it was cancelled after the death of the mangaka, Kayaharuka. The second season of the anime will also replace Tatsuhisa Suzuki, voice actor for Anos, due to his alleged extramarital affair with a female associate. Suzuki is married to singer-songwriter LiSA. Yuichiro Umehara (Goblin Slayer as Goblin Slayer) will replace Tatsuhisa Suzuki.
In the distant past, a war between humans and demons brought about widespread chaos and bloodshed. To put an end to this seemingly endless conflict, Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future.
In preparation for their king’s return, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with determining Anos’ identity when he reawakens. He reincarnates two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon learns that the level of magic in the world has drastically waned during his absence. Moreover, when he enrolls at the academy to reclaim his rightful title, he finds out that demonkind remembers him differently. His personality, his deeds, and even his legacy are all falsified—masked beneath the name of an impostor. This “lack” of common knowledge renders him the academy’s outlier—a misfit never before seen in history.
Despite these drawbacks, Anos remains unfazed. As he sets out to uncover those altering his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that their ruler has finally returned.
