Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha | Episode 2

The second episode, sure is an interesting one. What the story does do is expand a little bit on Anos Voldigoad past life when he was the Demon King. It gave the smallest glimpse as to his mindset on wanting to end the war and to create a world of peace, even if that mean him dying, bringing forth 2000 years of peace. Until he was reincarnated of course.

Much like the first episode, we’re shown Anos’ insane power and knowledge right from the start. (Towards the end of the episode he literally picks up a castle, twirls it around on his finger then launches the castle through a hillside).

Similar to Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei where students are split into “weeds” and “blooms”, the school system presented to us in the anime is very similar where we have white uniforms and red uniforms. Individuals in white uniform are considered “weeds” while the “blooms” are the red uniforms. Again, I am going to draw another comparison from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei. Just like how Tatsuya was the insanely overpowered character in the ‘lower’ class grouping, Anos is shown in the exact same way. I guess, you can draw a lot of comparisons between both anime, that is for sure.

The one thing I do have a kind of have a problem with in regard to the second episode of the anime, is that the reason for Anos being given a white uniform over a red uniform is simply because the name that was passed down for 2000 years, got lost in translation and/or got altered along the way so it wasn’t actually Anos Voldigoad, but Avis Dilhevia. Granted, Misha is also a white uniform so maybe she doesn’t actually know the name. BUT I assume anyway that was the main reason why Anos was given the white uniform, simply because he said the proper name, but everyone think’s the Demon King’s name is something different. Kind of stupid.

But hey, I cannot complain, I guess in doing so, the anime sets up for a pretty boss storyline where Anos just goes around wrecking people because everyone else underestimates him because he’s in a white uniform; and do not actually believe that he is the reincarnation of the true Demon King of Tryanny.
