Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

After 2000 years has passed, the ruthless demon lord has just been reincarnated! But his aptitude at an academy for nurturing candidates for demon lords is, “Inept”!?

Having the capability to destroy humans, elementals, and gods, after a long period of countless wars and strife, Arnos the demon lord became sick and tired of all that and longed for a peaceful world, so he decided to reincarnate to the future.

However, what awaited him after his reincarnation is a world too used to peace that his descendants became too weak due to a huge weakening in magical powers.

Arnos enrolled in the Maou Academy established to find any students that might be the demon lord’s reincarnation, but his powers are too extraordinary that those in the academy couldn’t properly judge his powers, so he’s regarded as an “Inept student”. Being underestimated and avoided by most people there, he recruited a girl friendly to him, Misha, as his subordinate and comrade, and strives to climb to the top of the demon race hierarchy to one day reclaim his former title and status.

Ignore bad reviews, if you're reading Maou Gakuin you're probably here because you've already seen its anime. So, you already know what this story is about. Translation is okay, and I love story. I love overpowered mcs, but you may not like them.

There isn't really romance till now, but there are some clues.

this series aint a romance THOUGH! More like a sub-sub-plot.

... more>> Overall I reccomend you this LN if you like overpowered mcs, a combat-type academy life where the MC is the "king".

Oh, another reason to read this is because what happens after ep 13 of its anime. You could say "oh, not really original and main stream. Not worthy."

Oh God, you're definitely not right. I'm reading the web novel, and what i'd say it's that the first season is like an introduction to the story. What happens after, is really interesting. Really reccomended. <<less

I read the first volume in a few hours, one whimsical sitting, and found it amusing as a junk food tr*shread, but not good enough to get bogged down in until the series ends.

Is this chuuni cringe, or absurdist satire of chuuni cringe? I found it hard to say at first -- even the name "Demon King Academy" feels too on-the-nose -- and it got me grinning a bit early on, but it's a little too bad to be taken in good faith. One-dimensional cliche characters, corny dialogue, tropes I've... more>> seen too many times...

Very "Infinity Plus One" schoolyard debate energy. "I can revert time infinitely to undo any damage I take!" "Oh yeah? Well I can destroy time-reversion."

It doesn't really have anything clever up its sleeve to reconcile the all-powerfulness of the protagonist with everyone's refusal to accept his identity. Everybody gets all the proof they should need on the first day and they just go on doubting.

On the other hand, he could force people to accept it, by challenging the whole order, instead of just doing tests and showing off in front of small groups. You could say that as long as he's enjoying his breezy school life, it's fine, and probably more fun that way, but he still does keep insisting on who he is. So I find it a bit incongruous.

If you look comparatively at, say, Saitama in OnePunch-Man, who's also bad at getting recognition for his impossible strength, there's a lot more thought in the setup. It doesn't really occur to Saitama to boast, and there's always some comically bad timing or absurd coincidence in the way -- another hero gets credit for a monster he kills, that kind of thing. But here in Demon King Academy, all the characters are really just too s*upid and prejudiced, even when they don't have an alternative explanation.

The protagonist also uses time travel without consequence (to do something that doesn't make any sense, mind you) to solve a problem in the first volume already, which seems pretty careless, and I can only assume he'll forget he can do it later.

The afterword of the first volume actually notes that the second volume actually picks up as "the real start of the story", so bear that in mind with my one-volume review. That could be true, but I don't think the starting point shows enough promise for that to even matter for me, so I'm comfortable with my choice to cash out early. <<less

I knew what I was walking into before reading the LN : OP MC, people that underestimated him even though he does extraordinary things all the time and women that were crazy about him.

I wasn't disappointed.

If you like that type of LN, you will not be disappointed either.

Generic and unoriginal. Typical overpowered protagonist being sent into a high school setting and shows off how strong he is whilst getting more female followers.
