In the distant past, a war between humans and demons brought about widespread chaos and bloodshed. To put an end to this seemingly endless conflict, Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future.

In preparation for their king's return, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with determining Anos' identity when he reawakens. He reincarnates two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon learns that the level of magic in the world has drastically waned during his absence. Moreover, when he enrolls at the academy to reclaim his rightful title, he finds out that demonkind remembers him differently. His personality, his deeds, and even his legacy are all falsified—masked beneath the name of an impostor. This "lack" of common knowledge renders him the academy's outlier—a misfit never before seen in history.

Despite these drawbacks, Anos remains unfazed. As he sets out to uncover those altering his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that their ruler has finally returned.

It's your typical/generic reincarnation anime with a way too OP character that literally gives Saitama a run for his money. And there's nothing wrong with that.

What gives it a little bump in rating is that it does well in bringing up the other characters and the lore/world building. The animation and color grading is solid for a full season, and has its moments of pretty decent during fights.

7-8 is a good rating. I gave it an 8 because I still remember it and the plot, which is more than I can say about other generic reincarnations/isekai even if I enjoyed them (thinking ...

For anyone wanting to watch be warned that you'll be watching purely for the MC as there isn't much else to it. This anime honestly went downhill mid-way. This anime has it's charms, it was funny as heck and the MC is loveable. I'm a huge fan of the MC is OP trope but I'm also someone who is greatly influenced by storytelling. If you're like me who loves a good story than this anime isn't for you. The amount of inconstancies was the funniest thing about it, and the plot gets confusing to the point where you might need to write it all out ...

This anime really only wasted the time that I wanted it to. I didn't love or hate it.

The characters were decent, but very flat. Sasha seemed like she was going to be an Asuka Langley-type character at first, but just acts really soft and out of character a lot. The rest of the characters just kind of did their job to progress the story.

The soundtrack was really nothing to boast. Fitting at best.

The fight scenes were pretty predictable, because if this guy is actually who he says that he is, he is obviously going to win.

The animation is pretty decent. There were a ...
