Welcome To Demon School Irum Kun has a simple plot. Iruma is a teen human boy who is sold off to a demon by his parents. Sullivan, the demon who adopts him as his grandson, takes him to the underworld and enrolls him in a demon school called Babyls School For Demons. Simple enough, isn’t it? Well, to add to it, now Iruma has to blend in. He makes friends with demons Alice Asmodeus and Clara Valac; however, he cannot reveal to anyone that he is human. If he does, he will be eaten by the demons. So, Iruma has to do his best to remain hidden in plain sight. Except, of course, in a demon world, there are things only demons can do. Things go out of hand often, and Iruma gets on the verge of being discovered. Will he be able to keep up the farce? Or will he be discovered by his so-called friends and then eaten alive?
This dark-sounding storyline belongs to a rather outlandish and yet, comical anime. The only way to determine if Iruma survives the ordeal is to watch the second season or keep reading the manga. Until then, let’s talk about where the story stands so far.
Story So Far
The 23rd and final episode of the first season officially aired on 7th March 2020. Iruma heads off to school after his usual breakfast with his adopted demon grandfather Sullivan. He hopes to have a normal day at school. Iruma meets Amelia, who asks him if he was feeling off for some reason, but he quickly declined the thought. She hands him a snack, and for a moment, their hand’s touch making Ameli’s heart beat faster than ever before. Once back home, Iruma goes to bed after having dinner with Sullivan. He considers Henri’s offer to erase all his memories and go back home. While in his thoughts, Iruma steadily realizes that he now successfully fits into the demon world. Should he really go back to the world where his parents sold him off?
Since Iruma has been off lately, Clara and Asmodeus decide to treat him to a handmade meal. Clara makes an outlandish dish while Asmodeus fixes up a fish meal despite being deathly afraid of fishes. Iruma tries the food in the morning and decides that they taste better eaten together. His friends also have to agree to this and eventually make up with each other. Meanwhile, Iruma decides that he’d rather stay in the Netherworld after all.
