The Misfit of Demon King Academy Plot

The story spins around a tyrannical Demon King named Anos Voldigord.
The Demon King got bored with the endless wars. After 2000 years of his demise, he is reincarnated with dreams of a peaceful world. After his rebirth, the demon king discovers that his descendants have become weak as a result of peace, causing magic to decline drastically.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy worth watching?

What I like about this anime is how they introduce the whole mythical setting of the storyline at the very beginning. The Demon king Academy aka Delsgade, is an institution to train the descendants of the demon king so that he can reincarnate into the most finely crafted body.
The whole owl bringing letters to the chosen ones to attend the Demon King Academy and the brawl among students being pure-bloods and hybrids reminds me of Harry Potter.
Also, there is this you cannot say the Demon King’s name aloud vibe in the intro of The Misfit of Demon King Academy going on, which is similar to Harry Potter’s Voldemort situation.
Each of the students must pass tests of magical power and other aptitudes to get into the academy. The first test of the academy reminds of Black Clover somehow. The first test shows us the brute and sadistic characteristics of Anos.
The Demon King
The anime is quite fast-paced, and it’s pretty easy to guess who is reincarnated as the Demon king is. Even in the first episode, we get to see a ton of magic, which again somewhat reminds me of Fairytail.
The Demon king seems to be savage when it comes to teaching someone a lesson. Yet we can see that he is kind and considerate. His dual personality is apparent from the first episode.
The female character Misha introduced in the first episode of The Misfit of Demon King Academy, a kawaii and shy demon girl whom Anos meets before the entrance exam, becomes quick friends with him and his parents. We can assume that Misha can be potentially, set up as Anos’s love interest. The Demon King doesn’t hesitate to invite her for dinner at his place. Misha also waits for him after school to see him.
Misha is quite powerful, as we see in the academy tests. And she is also the reason why we get a sneak peek of the Demon King’s kindness and softer side.

Misha may not be the only strong female character of The Misfit of Demon King Academy series, because we see another female character in the anime poster.
Anos enters The Demon King Academy to study alongside his descendants, but the academy can not see through his true powers and ends up stigmatizing him as a misfit. Hence the name The Misfit of Demon King Academy.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy’s illustration is okay. But the magic part intrigues me the most, and also I am in love with Anos’s red eyes. I am interested to see how The Demon King establishes his dominance over the world again.

The main characters of The Misfit of Demon King Academy

Anos Voldigoad: The main protagonist, the reincarnated demon king who existed 2000 years before the start of the series.
Misha Necron: A descendant of Ivis Necron, one of the seven Elder Demon Emperors. Misha has a twin sister named Sasha.
Sasha Necron: Misha’s twin sister. Sasha is also known as the Witch of Destruction due to her Demon Eyes of Destruction.

So far, i think that The Misfit of Demon King Academy will consist of 13 episodes. The Misfit of Demon King Academy is a good watch for otakus who are into magic and demons.

If you are following The Misfit of Demon King Academy you can watch it at Otaku-Streamers , do let me your thoughts on it. I feel it’s a good watch considering the fact it is an adaptation of a light novel series, though I haven’t read the source material.
