Anoth, 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!

Oh god, this is hilarious. I don't know why, but every time Anoth just straightforwardly says that fe's the reincarnated Demon King (which fe is), it cracks me up. And the way that feir parents act easily creates some of the funniest scenes. "The only one who can oppose me in this era may be my mother," Anoth says at one point, commenting on how even Demon Lords aren't entirely immune to the embarrassment caused by parents. So the basic idea is that the Demon King Academy was set up to recognize the Demon King once fe's reincarnated. But when the actual reincarnated Demon King shows up, fe's not recognized as such. But fe doesn't much mind. Fe'll just dominate everyone into subservience and eventually they'll come to realize that fe's their founder and king. Or they won't. Again, fe doesn't much care either way; fe just does what fe does. It seems the story will have fem slowly build an army of followers, possibly all female and possibly all feir future wives. So far fe's met Misha and Sasha. I don't really find Misha's emotionless, doll-like look to be cute. And I don't care for the cutesy, sisterly hand-holding and breast-bonking Misha and Sasha engage in. They've set it up so there's a nice, solid conspiracy which needs unraveling, so the story should be able to maintain my interest for a good while. [Originally reviewed at chapter 12] [Updated upon completeion] Addendum: It seems this was cancelled. The final three chapters which we get consist of a brief story arc about Rei, a skilled swordsman, and about how Rei and Anoth click together (partly because Rei has the reincarnated soul of someone from Anath's past, though without the memories). There's also a fan club to Anath introduced. I suppose that if this story had to be cancelled, at least it happened after a storyline came to a close and before the next storyline started. STORY--9 > 8; CHARACTERS--8 > 7
