The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Season 2: Renewal Status & Production Details
The production studio teased the second season of the anime in February this year. After a few days, they officially announced it on March 6, 2021. Aniplex USA made this news official by posting a tweet, and then Crunchyroll followed their lead and posted this news on their Twitter handle as well. Well, this news wasn’t shocking at all for the fans as they were anticipating it already. The inaugural installment performed really well and managed to get a lot of fans.
In fact, it is even ranked at #341 in popularity on MyAnimeList and has more than 448K members in its MAL group. As a result, it was kind of obvious for the series to get an early renewal. The production of The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Season 2 already began in March this year, right after its announcement. It is still ongoing and will likely take some more time before it reaches its final stage.
Light Novel Compared To The Anime
When the LN series began to serialize, a lot of critics claimed that the series heavily relies on the typical analogies of magical high school harem series. Some even called this series trash, but it still received a great response from the remaining set of the audience. The light novel series is still running successfully, and the authors have published a total of nine volumes so far. Studio Silver Link compressed a lot of content while adapting to the anime. They even skipped some important chapters in the middle episodes.
The good thing is that it didn’t have any significant impact on its storyline. Maou Gakuen no Futekigousha’s debut season used the first three volumes of the LN series. Thus, The Misfit Of Demon King Academy Season 2 will begin by adopting the first part of its fourth volume. Silver Link studio still has a lot of source material. Also, since the second season of the anime will be a split-cour, it will likely use at least five books this time.
