Plot Summary


After 2000 years has passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “inept”!?

Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future.

However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers.

The first episode is now up on Crunchyroll: https://www.crunchyroll.com/the-misfit-of-demon-king-academy/episode-1-the-misfit-of-demon-king-academy-796113

Episode 1

A lot changes in 2000 years, but most people won't experience it. Anos sure is full of himself there killing and reviving Zepes so many times during the entrance exam. That's what happens when the world has been at peace for so long that magic isn't needed for fighting anymore. Pretty ridiculous way to start this as Anos made his point there. Anyway, the crucial test for this show is what happens next and how Anos uses his OP-ness that will determine how well things fare in this show.

A lot of magic elements although the Arnos is somewhat of a badass. I hope they develop his personality more. Seems this show takes a rather serious
tone in its storytelling. Misha (the silver haired girl) seems kinda cute I guess but seems pretty dull for a character.

So it seems Arnos wants to change the world, a huge goal if you think about the efforts to so with the current conditions.

Idk, this seems like a pretty meh start, nothing unique about this show yet.

I'm getting distinct irregular vibes... which is a good thing (for me at least)

The entrance exam was mostly very funny, but I am still wondering about that one question!?

Mom and Dad were adorable

I hope we continue in this deadpan vein it was all very entertaining (my favorite opening episode so far)

I liked it. I know nothing about this story yet, just this episode, but I'm optimistic. Love a good Demon Lord story.

I'm guessing Misha is going to serve the "childhood friend" role given the MCs age it's unlikely there's another. Probably why the parent introduction was done so soon in the story. I think her character will end up getting more defined as rivals appear.

MC is OP which is pretty much standard. I like that there's no learning curve for him though and his attitude is beyond arrogance (he simply knows that he's better than everyone because it's true). Lots of upstarts are going to get beat down in this one.


Seems fun, I'm hopeful.

Episode 1

Well looks like Silver Link is at it again with another great anime. The first episode was really good and i like the way that Arnos pretty much toyed with Zepes until he gave up. Misha seems kinda boring since she hardly talks but hopefully that changes as we go along in the series. Now my favorite part had to be Arnos parents especially his mom. His mom is freaking adorable the way she lights up when she brings Misha home. I can expect a lot of funny moments from her.

Now the last part with Zepes brother was fucking awesome. We not only see Arnos stop everyone from using magic but turns Zepes into a zombie to attack his older brother. After this both brothers won't dare do anything to Arnos and have sure learned a lesson. Also they probably see each other in a better way?

Now the only thing im left wondering is how responded to that second question? Im sure they will show the answer later, but im pretty sure what the answer is. I can't wait to see how this turns out?

That was fun, loved the fights, I like it when OP really means OP. Like to see Misha fight, apparently the girls will carry the show so looking forward to meeting them. Loved the parents.

Was enjoyable. And made me think awesome they have a in universe explanation why the MC is OP.

Can’t wait for next episode.

I really enjoyed the novel version, but was less keen on the manga. A lot of the best bits involved Anos' internal monologue and I'm not sure how well that translates to other mediums (His internal dialogue was incredibly condescending and arrogant, but in an amusing way).

In the original, his parents were also really funny, especially when they were interacting with Anos' friends.

Great first episode. Arnos didn't give Zepes much time to think between snaps in their fight; if you could call it that.

Misha seems a little dark. She was completely unfazed in Arnos fight with the brothers. Peoples' hands were exploding at the wrist, deaths by black electrocution, and a lich warrior electro-barbecuing its enemy on the spot. The whole time Misha is just on the side like, "meh, time to go home yet?".

Looking forward to these episodes.
