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, 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!

The second season of the anime began airing in January of 2023 but was delayed due to production issues and the broadcast was restarted in July. The sequel saw a major main cast change, as Yuichiro Umehara replaced Tatsuhisa Suzuki as the voice of Anos.
