    Description

    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.

    Impression
    Read some chapters of fan translated manga and web novel. The first impression is not bad. It's like the opposite of Demon King Daimaou, where MC knows he is the demon king but everybody else fails to acknowledge it.
    The butt of the joke is that MC is the founder everybody is worshipping and wishing for. But somebody put a lot of effort into changing the name of the founder. Naturally, when MC is reborn as a half demon, nobody is able to accept him as the true demon lord due to how much common sense has changed since 2000 years ago. But also, because somebody, for some unknown reason has gone to great length to erase protagonist from the annals of history. Its a bit similar to Shikkaku Mon no Saikyou Kenja, except MC never tries to hide his true identity.

    The manga to this is actually really good so yeah, I wouldn't mind one bit having this one get an english translation. And that goes for either the manga or the LN.

    Between a manga and a light novel, I always prefer the light novel, mainly because I want to progress the story as quickly as possible.
    The manga is not too bad, I am not sure if there is a light novel (if so, that has my up vote) but the Web novel was not too bad. Rather sweet, usual tropes, a kuudere and tsundere. Though the manga did do one scene in the first volume well.
    Won't say fully, but as a marker - about breaking fate.
    Is there a request post for the light novel?

    Thinking about it, superficially it's too similar to Retirement Plan, so I guess even though I assume this would make for the better read Sam will not license it anytime soon if at all. Magic High School with op protag and a harem. Offu.

    His parents are totally fine with anything he does. It gets explained in web novel chapter 42 that his mother is unable to have children. Then she gets pregnant and have a lot of complications during pregnancy period. The doctor tells her that she should abort, that even if the child will be born it will be abnormal. Then the child is born and its heart stops, only to restart again.
    Against all odds, the family who were no supposed to have children were able to have a child. That is why they just roll with everything that their child says and does.

    The last line of chapter 42 was funny.

    That’s why my parents accept even two-timing, bigamous homosexuality.

    I just realized that I was too used to the art style of the manga that the style of novel's illustrations looks strange to me.

    I suspect that cover for vol.5 has him regressed in age for some reason.
