Stream or Skip It: 'The Misfit of Demon King Academy Ⅱ' on Crunchyroll, a powerful story involving magic, reincarnation, (2023)

Isekai anime series are ten cents. You can't have a single anime series these days without stumbling across six different Isekai stories or at least one western fantasy-inspired story with a title as long as a sentence. In case ofThe Demon King's Academy Misfit Ⅱ: The strongest demon king in history is reincarnated and goes to school with his offspring, Short versionThe Misfit of Demon King Academy II, we have another Isekai with a few more intriguing rounds of character development and situations to keep you interested as the series progresses.

From a man who thinks he's god to some of the most adorable Moe characters ever created, it never fails to leave you amazed. Thankfully, it doesn't rely on all the tropes the genre shares, and that makes the watch a lot of fun. Season 2 delivers some very tasty bits that flow smoothly. But you can only really see it once you've completed the first season, mind you. It will be almost meaningless to anyone who goes blind.


opening shot:The Great Mother Spirit Leno (Kana Asumi) walks through the forest and announces to everyone that she has decided to go to Delsgade. Tithi takes care of her, and with good reason, as Leno meets the Heavenly Father God NousGalia (Yuya Uchida) after he punches her square in the face and tells her that he wants a new "Son of God" as part of the "God- want to create clans". to defeat the demon king of tyranny. If you haven't seen the first season none of this makes sense, but if you did? The hype train has stopped at the station.

The essence:The first season ofMisfits of the Demon King Academyfollows the original light novel series by Shuuichi Shigeno. It centers on a powerful demon king named Anos Voldigoad (Tatsuhisa Suzuki) who, after being reborn in a new world, enrolls in a school for demon lords. Despite being one of the strongest beings in the world, Anos struggles to blend in with his peers and prove himself a worthy Demon King. The first season features Anos' struggles as he navigates the politics and power struggles of the demon world as he tries to uncover the truth about his past life and the mysterious circumstances of his reincarnation.

Anos is a complex and powerful protagonist, and the series also boasts a diverse cast of interesting and well-developed supporting characters. Additionally, when the series delves into the politics of the demon world, with the various power struggles and shifting alliances between the various demon lords, things get more than a little interesting. Throw in the mysteries surrounding Anos' past life and the circumstances surrounding his reincarnation, and you'll have a show to yourself over a weekend without even realizing it.

With that all out of the way, the following might actually make sense. At the end of Season 1, Anos and his loyal crew defeated the mighty Jerga. They rescued all humans under their control and brought the houses of Azeshion and Dilhade under relative control. Despite this, there are some who refuse to acknowledge Anos as their true demon king of tyranny.

In the opening scene where Anos appears and kills the heavenly father god NousGalia who is trying to impregnate Leno, Anos has a plan to stop the god from attacking: command the right hand Shin Reglia (Wataru Hatano), by the greats to stay spirit. Leno on their way to the land of Delsegard. It gives us a glimpse of a love story involving Leno, but that doesn't last long as a new, more powerful entity emerges: Anoshu Polticoal (Yuichiro Umehara).

In all of this, the pilot explores what's going on at the Demon King Academy, introduces two new exchange students and a strange professor, and a seedy relationship with the Blaze Death King that ends up shaking things up more than a little. . . - with Anos noting that "Erdomaid DittiJohn" looks a lot like the NousGalia he "killed" earlier in the episode. We said it was a lot if you hadn't seen the first season.

What shows will this remind you of?While there is nothing that is 100% identical to this series, you should delve into shows likeKonosuba: God bless this wonderful world,No game, no life, zsovereign, all featuring reincarnations, fantasy battles, and unique politics and power struggles in each country. You'll find that most of these series start with an almighty protagonist and then build from there, much likedemon kingdid and added his own flourishes.

Our opinion: The Misfit of Demon King Academy IIdoes what it is supposed to do very well. He wowed viewers with a solid first season and returned for an encore with even more reason to stay on the good side of Anos. The second season complicates things massively, but builds on the already solid foundation that the first season built. Minutes after the episode airs, things get downright complicated and it's difficult to read exactly what's going to happen over the course of the season.

gender and skin:Given that one character is about to violently impregnate another in the opening moments of the episode, there are implications that would make this series a little unsuitable for younger viewers as well as some of the scantily clad female characters.

farewell shot:Anos teleports into a tower where it appears he is too late to save his target - Ziek Ozma is there, rejoicing at his presumed victory, and he and Anos argue for a moment, with Ziek defying Anos, before the episode ends.

Sleeping Star:The new voice actor of the year, Yuichiro Umehara, who debuted this season, is doing a fantastic job taking over the work that his predecessor abandoned. If you didn't know there was a change, it would be hard to tell. It fits the role perfectly and feels like a natural fit.

More pilot line:"It's time you registered this in your supposed order," says Anos as he quickly ends the life of a seemingly immortal antagonist - an unexpected death minutes into the first episode. Well, that's a problem we don't have to worry about anymore...or does it?

Our appeal:TRANSFER IT. This is another big helping of one of the best Isekai series out there, from the animation and voice acting to all the intricate little details that work together to create an important and heartwarming story for Anos and his followers. If you've been waiting for a reason to get on this series, consider Season 2 a valid excuse.
