Shu’s The Misfit of Demon King Academy: History’s Strongest Demon King Reincarnates and Goes to School with His Descendants light novel series has quite a mouthful for a title. And during the first day of the “Kadokawa Light Novel Expo 2021” event, they announced that the series is getting a second TV anime season. They even released a teaser PV:

The event revealed that SILVER LINK will once again be animating the series. It will have two cours, though they will be splitting them into two parts. The event also unveiled a brand new key visual for the upcoming anime as well:
The announcement did not reveal much details yet, unfortunately. Expect the staff to reveal more details in the days to come. Here is how MyAnimeList describes the first season’s story:
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.
