The original The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novels are published in Japan by ASCII Media Works (a division of KADOKAWA) under their Dengeki Bunko imprint. Crunchyroll currently streams the first season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy TV anime and describes the story of the series as follows:
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 Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not see through his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit.
Although the exact release date for the second season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy has not yet been revealed, it has been announced that the series will broadcast as a pair of split cours.
