On the official Twitter account for the anime adaptation of the light novels written by Shu and illustrated by Yoshinori shizuma, Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha (The Misfit of Demon King Academy), it was announced that the franchise will have a special presentation at the event “Dengeki Bunko Winter Festival Online 2021“, Next December 12. The statement writes:
«The strength of Anos has caused a great sensation in “Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha”! Tomori kusunoki, who plays Misha, and Yuuko Natsuyoshi, who plays Sasha, have been invited to bring you the latest information on the novel and the television anime. The second season of the television anime has also been decided, so keep an eye out for new information on “Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha”!». It should be noted that fans are more than impatient for this announcement not only because of the anime itself, but because they want to know if Tatsuhisa suzuki will continue to be the voice of Anos Voldigoad, after having starred in an infidelity scandal in the middle of the year.
This second season did not reveal a scheduled premiere date, but it is confirmed with two arcs (two quarters) that will be issued separately. For its part, the first season premiered during the Summer-2020 (July-September) season in Japan and had a total of thirteen episodes, while Crunchyroll handles its distribution in the West. Shu began publication of the novels in the independent service Shousetsuka ni Narou in April 2017.
Synopsis of Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha
In the distant past, a war between humans and demons caused widespread chaos and bloodshed. To end this seemingly endless conflict, the Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future. In preparation for the return of their king, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with determining the identity of Anos when he awakens. He is reincarnated two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon discovers that the level of magic in the world has drastically decreased during his absence.
Also, when he enrolls in the academy to claim his rightful title, he discovers that demons remember him differently. His personality, his deeds and even his legacy are falsified, masked under the name of an impostor. This “lack” of common knowledge makes him the atypical of academia, a misfit never before seen in history. Despite these drawbacks, Anos is unfazed. As he sets out to uncover those who alter his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that their ruler has finally returned.
