The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 Source Material Information
For The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime, the source material is a light novel. And here is all the information that we need for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2.
It will tell us if there is enough source material for a second season. It’s important because that could prevent the sequel and the release date from happening.
- Is The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novel finished? – The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novel is still ongoing. The author Shu released the latest volume On April 9, 2021.
- How many volumes does The Misfit of Demon King Academy have? – In Japan, The Misfit of Demon King Academy has 9 light novel volumes published. There is also a manga adaptation serialized online via Square Enix’s Manga UP! website.
- What is the release speed of The Misfit of Demon King Academy Light Novels? – From 2018 to 2020, there were three new volumes released per year in Japan. In 2021, it’s so far only one new volume of the light novel.
- Which light novels does the anime of The Misfit of Demon King Academy cover? – The first season of The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime, by studio Silver Link, used volumes 1 to 3.
- How many copies are in print? – As of 2021/03, The Misfit of Demon King Academy had 1.800.000 copies in print. That puts it outside the top 100 best-selling light novels of all time.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy light novels by Dengeki Bunko are still getting published. The story has not ended yet, and volume 4 picks up where the anime left off. So there are no problems with the source material.
There are six light novels available for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2. That’s fewer books left to adapt for Maō Gakuin no Futekigōsha Season 2 than for sequels like One Punch Man Season 3 or Classroom of The Elite Season 2. As a result, the source material will not be a problem.
SUMMARY: The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 will not have a shortage of source material. There’s enough for at least two more seasons.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Sales & Profit Information
We need to check if The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime adaptation was profitable and how well the series is doing in sales. If the anime failed to make a good profit, there would be no second season and no release date.
We will look at Blu-Ray sales, light novel sales, and merchandise numbers.
That will tell us enough. After that, we will know if the anime made enough profit for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2.
- Blu-Ray Sales for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Anime – The Misfit of Demon King Academy sold around 2,400 copies per Blu-Ray in Japan. This series hasn’t received any BD-box so far. Selling about 2,500 copies per volume in 2020 is pretty good.
- Light Novel Sales for The Misfit of Demon King Academy – Volume 8 sold around 16,000 copies in Japan, and volume 9 sold about 14,000. Selling 15,000 copies per volume is okay but not ideal for a series with an anime adaptation.
- Figurines Numbers for The Misfit of Demon King Academy – two figurines available. They are both Misha Necron, and her sister has 0. I expected at least 5 to 10 for this series.
- Merchandise Numbers for The Misfit of Demon King Academy – About 140 items are available. At the very least, the merchandise has done well so far for this series. It’s been one year, and there are close to 150 pieces of merchandise.
- The Misfit of Demon King Academy Streaming – The international rights to this series went to Crunchyroll and Funimation. The Misfit of Demon King Academy also streamed on both of them and some other platforms. Streaming is pretty profitable in 2021, so it most likely made decent money from that.
- The Misfit of Demon King Academy Manga Adaptation – There is a manga adaptation for this series, but it never ranked anywhere. So it’s most likely not selling that well.
The Misfit of Demon King Academy Blu-Ray sales are pretty good for 2020. Light novels didn’t benefit significantly from the anime adaptation, and there’s a lack of figurines, but the merchandise is fine. So the anime adaptation made some profit for Kadokawa and the production committee.
I’m not going to share the rest because they usually don’t make a lot of money.
But there are also other ways The Misfit of Demon King Academy anime made money. The soundtrack, ending and opening songs, various collaborations, and more.
SUMMARY: Sales and profit won’t be a problem for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2. The Misfit of Demon King Academy made a profit from the anime adaptation.
Will There Be The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2
The sales for this franchise aren’t bad, but they aren’t exceptional either. It’s hard to tell the chances of a sequel currently. It’s too soon to tell how much the anime helped. It usually takes at least one to two years after the anime ended to see how much the franchise benefitted from the adaptation.
One similar anime with a demon lord recently got a sequel announced.
Maybe this one will surprise us with a sequel as well. I’m talking about How Not to Summon a Demon Lord. It’s getting a shorted sequel with just ten episodes, but it’s better than nothing for the fans.
I believe we will have a much better idea of the likelihood of a season 2 next year. Maybe we will get lucky, and a sequel will be announced even before I update this article. Because I believe it can happen.
UPDATE FOR THE MISFIT OF DEMON KING ACADEMY SEASON 2 Season 2 was announced on 6th March. There is no release date for The Misfit of Demon King Academy Season 2 yet. Studio Silver Link will be doing the second season.
Are you interested in any other sequels?
