In the distant past, a war between humans and demons brought about widespread chaos and bloodshed. To put an end to this seemingly endless conflict, Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future. In preparation for their king's return, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with determining Anos' identity when he reawakens. He reincarnates two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon learns that the level of magic in the world has drastically waned during his absence. Moreover, when he enrolls at the academy to reclaim his rightful title, he finds out that demonkind remembers him differently. His personality, his deeds, and even his legacy are all falsified—masked beneath the name of an impostor. This "lack" of common knowledge renders him the academy's outlier—a misfit never before seen in history. Despite these drawbacks, Anos remains unfazed. As he sets out to uncover those altering his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that their ruler has finally returned.

When you take all the possible anime cliches you can think of and smash them together in the first episode


That time Chuck Norris got reincarnated as Kirito in a fantasy world.


this seems like a guilty pleasure type of show. good enough to kill time


Honest power fantasy, edgy and comfortable


Good ol fashion Broken MC. you love to see it. this ‘ill be something im for sure continuing


Amazingly cliche, but in a good way. Takes all of the typical demon lord tropes and presents them well. Thoroughly enjoyable.


What? You thought I’d die from being killed?

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
