The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 has been delayed following the broadcast of today’s episode. The COVID-19 pandemic was stated as the official reason for the delay and no return date has been given.

- Chief Director: Shin Onuma
- Director: Masafumi Tamura
- Character Designs: Kazuyuki Yamayoshi
- Series Composition: Jin Tanaka
- Art Director: Asuka Komiyama
- Music: Keiji Inai
The Misfit of Demon King Academy series is based on a light novel written by Shu and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma. The light novel started serialization in Dengeki Bunko in 2018, with a manga adaptation by Kayaharuka following in MangaUp! magazine. As Kayaharuka passed away last year, after battling pancreatic cancer, the manga has been put on indefinite hiatus.
Square Enix licensed the manga and describes the plot as:
Anos, the Demon King of Tyranny, has defeated humans, spirits, and gods alike. But even demon kings get tired of all the fighting sometimes! Hoping for a more peaceful life, Anoth decides to reincarnate himself. When he wakes two thousand years later, though, he finds the world has become too peaceful–his descendants have grown weak and magic is in serious decline. Intending to reclaim his rightful place, he enrolls in Demon King Academy, where he finds that his magical power is off the charts. Literally. And because they can’t measure his power, the faculty and other students regard Anoth as a misfit. With the support of Misha, the one student he manages to befriend, the misfit (Demon King) begins his climb up the demon ranks!
In addition to The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2, other shows that have been delayed are Kubo Won’t Let You Be Invisible, UniteUp!, Ayakashi Triangle, and NieR:Automata.
