The staff from the first season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy return for the second season with direction from Masafumi Tamura (Wise Man’s Grandchild) at SILVER LINK., series composition by Jin Tanaka (Laid-Back Camp), character designs by Kazuyuki Yamayoshi (CHAOS;CHILD) and music by Keiji Inai (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?). Crunchyroll is streaming the first season, describing it as such:


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.


Season two of The Misfit of Demon King Academy begins on January 7 at 24:30 on Tokyo MX (effectively 12:30 on January 8) and air over two, non-consecutive, anime seasons in two parts.
