Unfortunately, the announcement of The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 didn't include the release date of the sequel. It has been more than a year since the first news, but the production team still hasn't stated the exact release date just yet. It's mostly due to the number of problems that occur among the staff and members. The mangaka has recently passed away, and not only that, the voice actor of the main character ruined his reputation recently and has been thoroughly canceled, so they are looking for a replacement. Luckily, the replacement was found a few months ago.

At this point in time, we will just have to wait for further announcements from the production team. If we would have to guess, The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 would be released sometime around Winter 2023 at the earliest. As for the announcement, it is possible that we would be getting it anytime soon, so stay tuned.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Action

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.
