The Misfit of Demon King Academy

Encore broadcast: Sundays 9:00pm
The tyrannical Demon King has been reincarnated after 2000 years.
However, his suitability to the academy that educates candidates to become the new Demon King…renders him a misfit!
Anos Voldigoad was a tyrannical Demon King that eradicated humans, spirits, and even the gods, but became bored of eternal warfare and reincarnated with dreams of a peaceful world. However, what awaited him in reincarnation after 2000 years were descendants who became too weak after being accustomed to peace, and all sorts of magic that deteriorated to the extreme.
Anos enters Demon King Academy that gathers and educates those who are viewed as the reincarnation of the Demon King, but the academy could not see through his true powers and ends up branding him as a misfit. Furthermore, they already assumed that the legendary Demon King was someone completely different.
While everyone insults him as inferior, he encounters Misha, the one girl sympathetic to his cause, as his subject. The misfit Demon King races up the hierarchy of the demonic world!
”Divine Providence, destiny, miracles…before my eyes, they all grovel and are eradicated.”Synopsis provided by ANIPLUS Asia
Tatsuhisa Suzuki’s voice is already recognized by my ear. The Oldcodex vocalist leads the cast of this light novel adaptation.
Also in the cast is Tomori Kusunoki (LLENN from Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online) and newcomer Yuuko Natsuyoshi (Himeko Mashima, Show by Rock!! Mashumairesh!!).
It is for me to decide which world to live in!
Premieres July 8, every Wednesdays 24:00 (Thursdays 12:00am)
Encore broadcast: Thursdays 6:00pm
Many years have passed since humanity was driven to the brink of extinction by the sudden emergence of the unknown life forms Gadoll.
Those humans that survived now dwell in a 3000m-high mobile fortress Deca-dence built to protect themselves from the Gadoll threat.
Denizens of Deca-dence fall into two categories: Gears, warriors who fight the Gadoll daily, and Tankers, those without the skills to fight. One day, Natsume, a Tanker girl who dreams of becoming a Gear meets surly Kaburagi, an armor repairman of Deca-dence.
This chance meeting between the seemingly two opposites, the girl with a positive attitude who never gives up on her dreams and the realist who has given up on his, will eventually shake the future course of this world.Synopsis provided by ANIPLUS Asia
I understood that this is an apocalyptic steampunk show with a pinch of giant-slashing akin to Attack on Titan, but I have yet to get a grasp on what this show is.
If you are into mecha but want to have a fresh start, consider watching this.
Katsuyuki Konishi (Hetalia’s America) leads the voice cast along with Tomori Kusunoki (mentioned above).
Fire Force Season 2
The blazing dark fantasy continues!
Premieres July 4, every Saturdays 01:55am

While being sought as an Adolla Burst user by the Evangelist, Shinra strives to halt the Evangelist’s plans in order to protect the world.
