The Misfit of Demon King Academy‘s Twitter page has revealed Yuuichirou Umehara to be the new voice of protagonist Anos Voldigord. This comes after a December 10 announcement that the previous voice actor, Tatsuhisa Suzuki, would no longer be playing the role.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy‘s second season is currently in production and will have a split-cour format. It was announced in March 2021. The first season aired in 2020 and ran for 13 episodes.

Crunchyroll describes the show as:

Anos Voldigord was a tyrannical Demon King that eradicated humans, spirits, and even the gods, but became bored of eternal warfare and reincarnated with dreams of a peaceful world. However, what awaited him in reincarnation after 2000 years were descendants who became too weak after being accustomed to peace, and all sorts of magic that deteriorated to the extreme. Anos enters Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not see through his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit.

The Misfit of Demon King Academy is based on the light novel series by Shuu with illustrations from Yoshinori Shizuma. The light novel series, which has 12 volumes as of October 2021, is published under KADOKAWA’s Dengeki Bunko label and has inspired a manga adaptation. The story began as a web novel on Shousetsuka ni Narou.

The main staff of the anime includes Shin Oonuma (Fate/kaleid liner PRISMA ILLYA Licht Nameless GirlDeep Insanity: The Lost Child) as chief director, Masafumi Tamura (The World’s Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in a Different World as an Aristocrat) as director, Kazuyuki Yamayoshi (Deep Insanity: The Lost Child) as character designer, and Jin Tanaka (Laid-Back Camp Season 2) as series composer. SILVER LINK is the animation production company.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
