The Light Novel Expo event announced on Saturday that an anime adaptation of Myoujin Katou's Shijou Saikyou no Daimaou, Murabito A ni Tensei suru (The Greatest Demon Lord is Reborn as a Typical Nobody) light novel is in production. Original illustrator Hayasakura Mizuno drew an illustration to commemorate the announcement (pictured above).

When being mediocre is the best-case scenario.

As the most powerful entity of all time, the Demon Lord Varvatos thinks life is a big fat snore. When he takes matters into his own hands and decides to reincarnate, he calibrates his magical strength to be perfectly average. But there is no way he could have predicted that everyone in the modern world would be weak as hell, which means he is totally overpowered once again! Reborn under the name Ard, he has ladies fawning over him, the royal family begging him to become the next king, and an ex-minion insisting on killing him?! But Ard has a one-track mind, and he won't stop at anything to achieve his ultimate goal! (Source: Yen Press)

Katou began writing the action fantasy series on the Shousetsuka ni Narou website in August 2018. Kadokawa began printing the novel with illustrations by Mizuno under its Fantasia Bunko label the following May. The seventh volume and the first side story volume shipped on November 20 and January 18, respectively. The eighth volume is planned for an April 20 release. The light novel has a cumulative 250,000 copies of its volumes in print.

A manga adaptation by Misuho Kotoba has been serialized in Big Gangan since February 2019. Square Enix published the fourth volume on February 25.

Yen Press licensed the light novel in English in March 2019 and released the fifth volume on February 23. The sixth volume is scheduled to be released on June 22.

I was expecting an anime announcement for this but later this year
People will definitely compare this with Maou Gakuin since the premise is similar but the story here is different and a lot less serious than misfit

I don't get it....How is this any different from other stupid LNs out there with ridiculously long names and 1 male MC, with multiple female characters? How is this fun to watch?

The first 2 comments are right. This looks exactly like the "Misfit of Demon King Academy"...Like straight up, a carbon copy lol.

So I guess that shitty Demon King Isekai is prancing around Light Novels and reprinting itself over them like Agent Smith?

What a joke of an industry.
Well I for one already loved Lain.

Never expected it to get a anime. The LN is pretty silly, but I like it.

For people comparing this to Maou Gakuin this is a lot less serious and far worse imo.

Stark differences between this and Maou Gakuin. Anos reincarnated because he was tired of fighting. Ard reincarnated because he felt alienated by everyone around him due to fear and he just wanted friends. Anos revels in his power. Ard fears people will run away if he shows his power. Similar premise very different execution.
I've read both series and enjoyed both.

Now there is a new trend on genki girls with a "hare" bow? This is already the 3rd or 4th character with this design, which I see in fresh content.

Not an isekai technically but has the same predictable generic isekai story so no difference from an isekai.

so it’s just fantasy…? And it’s not as generic as it sounds. I read the LN and it’s pretty good
