When Will 'The Misfit Of Demon King' Academy Season 2 Release?

Although we already have the confirmation that season 2 is happening, we still don't have a specific release date yet. Season 1 was announced in October 2019. It came out the following year, in July 2020, after getting delayed by the pandemic. If the second season follows the same schedule, we can expect season 2 to arrive by 2022.

Although we aren't sure when exactly 'The Misfit of Demon King Academy' season 2 will release, we know that the anime will be a split-cour season. Meaning, there will be an extended break between the first halves of the season to align with the broadcasting schedule in Japan.

What Is The Plot Of The Misfit Of Demon King' Academy Season 2? 

Two thousand years ago, the Demon Lord Anos Voldigoad became so powerful that not even the gods could stop him. After countless millennia of war, Anos gets bored. He finally wanted to have peace for everyone. So, he strikes a deal with humanity's hero, Kanon, for peace. He sacrifices himself for the greater good and reincarnates 2,000 years into the future. This time, the Demon King Academy also gets established.

The problem is that his magic ability has declined over the years. So, when the Demon King Academy accepted students, they did not recognize Anos' true strength. He ends up getting labeled as a misfit.

Anos' journey in the modern world helps him learn so many things in the first season. Most surprising to the former Demon Lord is the fact that nobody remembers who he once was. Human conspirators led by Jerga (Akio Ootsuka) betray Kanon after Anos' death 2000 years ago. They wanted to carry on the tradition of hating demons. The human hero then decides to reincarnate, too, so he and Anos can team up to defeat Jerga, the true antagonist of the story.

The first season ended with Jerga's defeat, which paves the way to bring back peace between all races. Although it seems like a definitive happy ending, there is still plenty of room for the new season to explore. There are still seven out of 10 volumes from the light novel series to cover.

The second season will likely adapt volume 4 of the LN series, which sees Anos getting named as the Demon Lord once again. However, there will be new enemies appearing from within the Demon Academy.
