After 2000 years have passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “inept”!?

Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future.

However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers.

Spoilers for the first few episodes ahead. If you actually want to save time to watch this anime, watch it first. But I’ll save you the time and summarize it. After watching the four painful episodes I still believe that this show is worse than Kenja no Mago.

The Misfit at Demon King Academy is the epitome of the average isekai/fantasy show we get every season. The definition of insanity is repeating the same dreadful mistakes but expecting change each time. Repetitiveness is a common theme in the Fantasy and Isekai genre. We see a handful of bad fantasy/isekai shows based off of light novels each read more

As many may suffer and will involuntarily cause self-harm while watching this trash. I have transcended and have fully embraced the mediocrity and found hilarity in this tragic show. I mean this is so shockingly bad I look forward every week to see how stinky this garage burns every week.

The characters are like poorly programmed NPC in a generic arse fantasy game, which you would usually skip over the dialogue to get to the action. Sadly, the action is hilariously anti-climatic and borderline comedy. The motives of the MC, Anos, makes no sense to me and yet I can tell actually what he will read more

Do I recommend this anime to other people? Well yes but actually no.

Imagine a mediocre generic fantasy/isekai anime with an extremely OP main character. Well, Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha is exactly that. Cute girls, annoying a-holes, random OP powers, lost magic, demon lords, different races, nobles, yea your generic fantasy anime.

Story - 5/10
Nothing new or unique. Seems like every other generic anime out there seems a lot like Kenji no mango. Obviously, the plot is kind of bland. I guess the demon lord coming back is kinda cool I guess? Well, overall the story is average. It's not a complete mess like other series so read more

The demon king sacrifices himself to allow for a better world to be formed. Eventually the time for him to reincarnate comes, and he finally sees the consequences of his choice.

While we say reincarnate, it is more accurate to say he got a new body. In other words, he is as strong as he was in his previous life, with all the memories.

More importantly, when he comes back he decides to go to school and learn about this new world. Also, he wishes to reclaim his place as the demon king. Actually that's the real goal, the school is kinda needed for that.
