Welcome to Demon School Season 4 Plot: What It Can Be About?

‘Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun’ season 4 is going to cover the Music Festival Arc of Osamu Nishi’s eponymous Japanese manga series. Before the Harvest Festival started, the students in the Misfit class were told that they must achieve Daleth (Demon Ranking 4) before the end of their current academic session or risk losing Royal One. Although Iruma and his classmates try their best that everyone advances their ranks, they, unfortunately, do not realize that there is a 13th student in the class named Purson Soi.

All of this confusion stems from the fact that Poi’s family bloodline magic Anti-Recognition allows him to remain hidden in plain sight so despite being in the same class with him, the Misfit students fail to realize he is there until Professor Naberius Kalego tells them. With the music festival approaching, Iruma’s class is tasked to do the Hell Dance choreographed by Kerori, but this just created more problems.

The titular protagonist has wanted all the Misfit students except for Soi on the stage but the dance is choreographed in a manner that all 13 students must participate, meaning Poi too will have to be a part of it too. However, his bloodline ability just complicates things. Furthermore, there are some familial and personal conflicts that also worry Poi, which he must confront if he wants to showcase his musical talent at the festival. While Iruma is preoccupied with these things, Six Fingers, which is Baal’s antagonistic faction plans to unleash the world of chaos in the demon world.
