The Misfit of Demon King Academy II will air an audio commentary version of its 14th episode on May 24 in place of Episode 19.

Episode 19 will tentatively premiere on May 31 instead.

The Episode 14 commentary will feature voice actors Tomori Kusunoki (Misha Necron), Yuko Natsuyoshi (Sasha Necron), Sayumi Watabe (Eleonore Bianca), and Misaki Kuno (Zeshia Bianca).

The Misfit of Demon King Academy, an adaptation of the Dengeki Bunko light novel series written by Shuu and illustrated by Yoshinori Shizuma, received its first season in 2020. The second season’s first cour started airing in January 2023 but was hit by a delay halfway and had to restart its broadcast in July 2023. The current second cour premiered on April 12 (effectively April 13 at 12 AM JST) in Japan.

 J-Novel Club describes the source material as:

Tired of ceaseless war destroying humans, spirits, and demons alike, the Demon King of Tyranny, Anos Voldigoad, reincarnates to restore peace. Two thousand years have passed…but who could have known that his descendants’ complacency would cause magic to regress so much? After receiving an invitation to the illustrious Demon King Academy, a school tasked with locating the reincarnated founding ancestor, Anos resolves to enroll, only to discover that his magic is off the charts—literally! With power too great to be measured, the former Demon King is branded a misfit. How will he convince demonkind that the school’s founder stands before them? Thus begins a misfit’s climb to the top of the demon hierarchy!

The light novel series began in 2018 and has 19 volumes (including two-parters) as of January 2024. There is a Square Enix-published manga adaptation by the late Kayaharuka and a KADOKAWA-published manga anthology by various artists. The Misfit of Demon King Academy started as a Shousetsuka ni Narou web novel in 2017. 

Season 2 of the anime is streaming on Crunchyroll and Bilibili. Yuichiro Umehara replaced Tatsuhisa Suzuki as main protagonist Anos Voldigord for the new season.
