The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 1: The Misfit of Demon King Academy

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 1 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 1, “The Misfit of Demon King Academy,” it had been 2000 years since the Demon King left the world, and prophecy said he will reappear this year. Naturally, all eyes are on the Demon King Academy’s students, where the next Demon King is expected to reintroduce himself. Aristocratic students like Zepes Indu assume they’re in line, especially compared to a no-name young woman named Misha Necron, who had the misfortune to drop her letter of introduction near Zepes. When Anos Voltegourde, another non-noble student, picked it up for her, Zepes tried to assert his power and authority. Anos, however, seemed beyond unconcerned. What gives him such confidence? Is he just showing off for Misha? Or is there something else, something much bigger, going on?

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 2, “The Witch of Destruction,” Anos Voltegourde learned part of the reason so many at school look down on him: they don’t think he’s really in the Demon King clan because they remember the wrong Demon King name! So, no matter what he does, with the exception of those who have experienced his power first hand, no one believes his claims. He put their ignorance to the test when Sasha NecronMisha Necron’s older sister, challenged him to a team match. Against him, Sasha planned to use ten or fifteen powerful students. Anos will use only one, Misha. Will Sasha realize her error before Anos destroys her — and her team? Will Misha miss her older sister? And what will Anos’ mom Isabella fix for his celebration dinner?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 4: 15th Birthday

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 4 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 4, “15th Birthday,” Sasha Necron had done her level best to make her sister, Misha Necron, hate her passionately. That included plunging a knife into her chest. Yet, Sasha’s Demonic Eyes of Destruction remained quiet and unused, which suggested she wasn’t really feeling it. With Anos Voltegourde in the picture, what could Sasha possibly hope to gain? At the same time, the plot around Avos Dihevia deepened, as Ivis Necron made another appearance. What’s his angle? Does he still intend to stay neutral? Or does he have other plans?

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 5 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 5, “The Transfer Student,” Anos Voltegourde was pleased to see his swordsman of old, Shin Regalia, reincarnated just in time to join his lord. Unfortunately, the reincarnated swordsman, now named Ray Gransdori, had no memory of his previous life. Ray was already a fantastic swordsman, so Anos had to reintroduce him to another concept: earning his position by merit. Anos, then, declined Ray’s offer to join Sasha Necron and Misha Necron on the Demon Lord’s team. Instead, he had to prove his worth on another team — against Anos. Can Ray regain his standing with his previous master? Or will he destroy himself in the process?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 10: The Inter-Academy Exams

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 10 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 10, “The Inter-Academy Exams,” the Hero and Demon students start their inter-academy activities with a demonstration of their respective magics. The Hero demonstration goes well, but the demon student can’t even get a basic spell to work. Anos Voltegourde saw instantly that the Heroes were cheating, and he easily exposed them — much to the humiliation of the Demon Royalists. But that was only the beginning of the Heroes’ treachery. With the majority of the Demon students not wanting Anos to participate, and with the Heroes so bent on cheating, do the Demon King Academy students stand a chance? Or do the Heroes have something even more nefarious in mind?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 11: The Glow of Life

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 11 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 11, “The Glow of Life,” Anos VoltegourdeSasha NecronMisha Necron, and Ray Gransdori took on the reincarnations representing Kanon’s fragmented source. The Heroes erected a barrier that drained demonic powers, but Anos, promising to shield Misha, asked her to erect their own fortress within the barrier. It became immediately obvious that the Heroes were no more willing to abide by the rules than they were in the previous episode. But over and above their treachery, another force was acting to drive the heroes. Can Anos identify and neutralize it before it’s too late — perhaps for some of his followers, if not for himself?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 12: Taboo Magic

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 12 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 12, “Taboo Magic,” Anos Voltegourde confronted Eleanor Bianca, but hadn’t needed to. She willingly told him all she knew. Which was a lot, especially about the fate of the original Kanon. While they were talking, Diego arrived, ready to do battle with Anos for defiling Eleanor’s shrine. A third party showed up to interrupt that right. This time, it was none other than Avos Dilhevia, with the Demon Lord Emperors that Anos has not freed already. Just what is Avos hoping to gain? Why is Diego so hell-bent on war? And what did Eleanor’s insights about Kanon tell Anos — if anything?

The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 13: Let the World Be Filled with Love

The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Episode 13 Review – Best In Show

In The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode 13, “Let the World Be Filled With Love,” Ray Gransdori explained why he created Avos Dilhevia two thousand years ago. Anos Voltegourde understood completely, of course, but both were determined to protect the other — at enormous cost. Even with with all of his Sources intact, was there any way for Ray to win an armed conflict with Anos? Whether he does or not, can the survivor stop Jerga’s magical form, a form that’s grown powerful by absorbing over 2000 years of hate? Or will the explosive force of thousands of Zeshias self-destructing destroy all those present, demon and human alike?

4 thoughts on “The Misfit of Demon King Academy Episode Guide

    1. TBH, this did remind me a lot of Irregular at Magic High, at least in terms of the main character. And I haven’t seen Noblesse yet, so maybe the trope hasn’t worn out its welcome yet. That said, there was in enough in this show with the parents and Anos Fan Union to make it stand out for me.

      If I have a complaint, it’s that Misha didn’t get enough to do by herself.

      1. They take the same primary trope and hang different other secondary tropes onto it. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t.

        Irregular started with what could have been a great social dystopia plot, wimped out on that, then transformed into a magical sports contest with an undercurrent of danger, then rewrote iitself yet again into all out magical warfare anime. And now the hero is a literal atomic bomb delivery system.

        1. Sure, but Miyuki is ridiculously cute, and Erika’s no slouch.

          In all seriousness, I hear what you’re saying about “what could have been a great social dystopia plot.” The blooms versus weeds was a great lens for that kind of exploration, and they just dropped it.

          I also get what you’re saying about Tatsuya being a literal strategic weapon. I almost expected that, though, given his Eidos ability. I mean, the guy can restore his body from a near real-time backup in the event he’s killed. Where does a narrative go from that?

          Well, it makes the MC a nuclear weapon.

          I’m still enjoying the show. I was only partly joking about Erika! But I’d enjoy it even more if they seriously investigate the social implications of a human strategic weapon. They might actually do that this season — at least, I hope so!

Please let me know what you think!
