The tyrannical Demon King has been reincarnated after 2000 years. However, his suitability to the academy that educates candidates to become the new Demon King… renders him a misfit!
The new comedy The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History's Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School with His Descendants starts on July 4th, so get ready!
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 the Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not recognise his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit. Furthermore, they already assumed that the legendary Demon King was someone completely different.
While everyone insults him and brands him as inferior, he appoints Misha, the one girl sympathetic to his cause, as his subject. The misfit Demon King races up the hierarchy of the demonic world!
“Divine Providence, destiny, miracles… before my eyes, they all grovel and are eradicated.”
