The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy is written by Yu Shimizu (author of the popular series Bladedance of Elementalers, with over 2 million copies sold), and original character concepts by Asagi Tohsaka (known for illustrating Girly Air Force). Together, they make an unbeatable duo! The series takes place in a fantasy school setting, centered around an ancient Dark Lord who awakens in the form of a 10 year-old child and meets a host of lovely heroines. The anime adaptation was first confirmed in 2021 and is currently being eagerly developed for its upcoming run.

New TV Anime The Demon Sword Master of Excalibur Academy
The most powerful of the Dark Lords, Leonis sealed his body away to one day exact his revenge.
However, when he is awakened after 1000 years of slumber, he finds that his body has reverted to that of a 10 year-old boy!
“How could this be?!” He wonders to himself, when a young woman discovers him. Trying to comfort the awakened Dark Lord, she says: “How’d you get stuck in here, little guy? Don’t worry, I’ll protect you.”
This girl, Riselia, is a student at Excalibur Academy, and Leonis is astonished when he finds out how drastically his world has changed. Hearing about such things as the unknown and hostile Void, the Seventh Assault Garden, and the absurdly powerful Excalibur, Leonis is totally lost in his new surroundings but ultimately enrolls in Excalibur Academy.
In a future world that has lost its connection to magic, the mightiest Dark Lord joins forces with beautiful heroines in this fantasy school story!
