Synopsis of Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha
In the distant past, a war between humans and demons caused widespread chaos and bloodshed. To end this seemingly endless conflict, the Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed his life, hoping to be reborn in a peaceful future.In preparation for the return of their king, the demon race created the Demon King Academy, an institution in charge of determining the identity of Anos when he wakes up. He is reincarnated two millennia later, but to his surprise, he soon discovers that the level of magic in the world has drastically decreased during his absence. Also, when he enrolls in the academy to claim his rightful title, he discovers that demons remember him differently. His personality, his deeds and even his legacy are falsified, masked under the name of an impostor. This "lack" of common knowledge makes him the atypical of the academy, a misfit never before seen in history. Despite these drawbacks, Anos is undeterred. As he sets out to uncover those who alter his glorious past, he takes it upon himself to make his descendants recognize that his ruler has finally returned.
