You might not get a standard plot in this anime, but if you’re in for some hot anime girls with supernatural powers, then you’ll be witnessing heaven for the straight 12 episodes.

If you think it is just another harem demon lord anime, you’re wrong. You might not be satisfied with how the plot gets advanced and the animation is not so impressive. It’s about as generic as it gets.

But there’s a reason why you can still keep watching it. It’s like a McDonald’s Cheeseburger, you know it’s not good for health, but it is so delicious you don’t care about any of that.

He enrolls into the Demon King Academy to dig out the mysteries about what happened after his death in his previous life. But can he set everything back while making sure to protect his loved ones?

Even if you have watched lots of demon lord anime, it feels so different from each one of them. It is filled with cliffhangers left and right, and the MC is overpowered as hell.

I would say the story is pretty much exciting all the time, and it never drags out. If you’re in for some epic action scenes, it takes you on an unforgettable journey.

3. Welcome to Demon School Iruma-kun

Honestly, the plot isn’t much deep, but it is a show you can watch with anyone because it is filled with infinite fun. All the characters are adorable, and the reactions are hilarious.

This anime is way too hilarious for you to take it seriously, but it will be one hell of a watch. If you have been watching a multitude of anime with weekly episodes, it will be a breath of fresh air to you.

It isn’t your typical isekai anime where the main character fights against the Demon Lord; instead, the main character himself is a Demon King, and he comes to earth. Quite a new concept, isn’t it?
