Oh no! I’m late for the new school term! Wait, I graduated years ago. Oh no! I almost forgot the new season of Iruma-kun. Yes, the new term has begun at Babyls as Iruma still wants to blend into the background lest he be discovered as the human he is. However, after the events of Walter Park, he’s become one of the most popular students in school. Not helpful. And not all is gumdrops and rainbows in this evil world of teardrops and deathblows. The misfit class learns that they all have to reach Dalet rank before becoming second-year students. If they fail, they will be removed from the Royal One classroom. To help them achieve this desired rank, the school is splitting the students up between several tutors, which seems to have good and bad implications depending on the student/tutor combination. Perhaps in the toughest spot are Iruma and Lied who not only have the rather flighty Robin-sensei tutoring them but his sister, Bachiko, as well, who only agrees to tutor them if they make her “feel like a mentor.” It looks like the new term will be just as crazy for Iruma and his friends as the last.
The opening theme songs every season have been consistently awesome for this series and this season is no exception. I think I personally still prefer the second season OP but this new one may grow into a favorite, and it’s a great way to start things off. The episode also wastes no time getting right to the story, which is great for returning viewers. It may be tough for the few who are brand new to the franchise, but it takes no time to get the characters’ personalities down as we are shown enough of each student in the misfit class to showcase who they are. The art style continues to have a good mix of goofy character art along with epic-looking images. It’s looking like it’s going to be an exciting season and I can’t wait to see what happens.
Welcome to the Demon School, Iruma-Kun S3 can be streamed on Crunchyroll.
