Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e Kayou review

Apr 04, 2021
Once upon a time, there was a man, who obliterated human countries, burned the forest of spirits to ashes and even killed Gods. The man was feared as the demon lord. However, even a demon lord gets tired of the horrors of war and proposes the heroes, who have come to negotiate with him, to kill him, split the world into four: the human world, the demon world, the spirits world, the world of the Gods, to build walls between the worlds, and to seal their gates for 1000 years. After 1000 years, the grudges between demons and humans should disappear. 2000 years after the demon king has finally been reborn and the new world truly shocks him. How has the world changed in 2000 years?

Imagine the frustration of the strongest magical creature, the world has ever known, to find out that the world he is reborn in has very weak magic. But that does not worry the demon king, since all he wanted was to stop the war. Anyways, the strongest magician and the demon lord Voldigoad Anos tries to research the new world and gets an invitation to an academy that should determine the demon lord. Anos is not the only one to get the invitation, there is a great number of promising students among those, who are expected to enroll this year- so many that they have been called the generation of chaos. And so, a one month old kid, who has become a teenager in no time with the help of a magic spell, leaves his home and enrolls at Demon King Academy.

Character wise, while they do seem to be a bit cliché, it is not as annoying as in some manga. The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History's Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School with His Descendants has decent characters that are interesting to follow. I would, however, appreciate if there were more characters, but that has not been that much of a problem.

Anyways, The Misfit of Demon King Academy is getting an anime adaptation in July, 2020. It somewhat reminds me of One Punch Man, but, at the same time, these are absolutely different series. The Misfit of Demon King Academy is quite nice manga to read: good humor, fanservice is hardly noticeable, the story makes sense and the art is pleasant. With that being said, this is a quite good manga and an anime series that can be quite interesting, if adapted correctly.
