First published in Summer 2020, The Misfit of Demon King Academy is an adventure and fantasy anime series with many romantic elements. Adapted from the light novel series written by Japanese manga artist Shu, the anime has attracted great interest from anime lovers around the world and in Japan, where it was originally published. The first season of the anime, consisting of a total of 13 episodes, was created by silver link† The studio, which has drawn many successful animes, also owns big hit animes such as Chivalry of a Failed Knight and Masamune Kun No Revenge† It originally aired on many local networks such as Tokyo MX, GYT, GTV, BS11, AT-X, TVA, YTV between July 4, 2020 – September 26, 2020. The series, licensed from Aniplex of America and listed on crunchy rolls, gained a huge audience with his English dubbing. Now fans of the series are wondering if there is one second season† Let’s remember the series and look at everything that is known about the second season.
What is the storyline of the anime?
Even demon kings can get bored at times, though their hunger for destruction is endless! Kneeling before humans, elementals, and even gods, Anoth reincarnates today with a desire for a more peaceful life. After 2000 years, the king and his great-grandchildren have to attend the same school, namely the Demon King Academy, and his life will not be as easy as he imagined. In this age where the last traces of magic are about to end, no one will even understand the true power of Anoth. On the other hand, it will not be easy for Anoth to graduate from this school.
Will there be a second season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy?
The news is good because the anime has been renewed for a second season. According to the announcement on March 6, 2021, the anime will get a new season. The fans have a huge impact on this renewal decision as the anime received a lot of attention in Japan and worldwide. Silver Link will take the lead in the second season of the anime’s production, just like in the first season, and the main staff in the first season will return for the new season. Renewal decision for the anime has also been confirmed by crunchy rolls†
As you know, the anime is based on a light novel series. Shu’s light novel series, which aired in March 2018, is published in Japan by ASCII Media Works. The last installment of the series, which reached a total of 10 volumes, was released on April 9, 2021 and the series is still running. In the first season, 3 parts of the light novel were adapted into anime, and it is expected that a large amount of source material will be adapted to the anime in a second season. It seems that if things go well, there’s no reason why we shouldn’t see more seasons. What we mean by ‘it’s going well’ is popularity and disc sales.
Disc sales and popularity play a big part in renewing an anime for a new season because animes are for-profit productions. The anime’s first season sold six volumes, with an average sales figure of 2.355 units. Although this sales figure is below target, anime has a very high audience on online platforms. Our popularity stats are above average, but it needs to do better with season two to secure a third season.
