Synopsis: A Tale of Redemption and Unveiling the Truth
In a distant past, a relentless war between humans and demons plunged the world into chaos and bloodshed. To end this seemingly endless conflict, the Demon King Anos Voldigoad willingly sacrificed himself, hoping to be reborn in a future of peace. In anticipation of their king's return, the demon race established the Demon King Academy, an elite institution tasked with verifying Anos' identity upon awakening.
Reborn after two millennia, Anos is met with a shocking revelation. The world's magic levels have drastically declined during their absence. Furthermore, upon enrolling in the academy to reclaim their rightful title, Anos discovers that the demons remember him differently. His personality, deeds, and even his legacy have been counterfeited, masked by the name of an imposter. This "lack" of common knowledge renders Anos an unprecedented misfit, an anomaly never before seen in history.
Undeterred by these obstacles, Anos embarks on a quest to unveil those who have tampered with his glorious past. Along the way, he strives to make his descendants acknowledge that their true ruler has finally returned.
