“Maou Gakuin” alphabet

(this is in progress, as long as the show is)

Summer 2020 brings us the anime “Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha” with another funky on-screen alphabet. By episode 6 I’ve seen enough samples to confirm that it is an actual Roman-style alphabet and the on-screen text so far actually means something in English or Japanese.

There’s a decimal number system and two scripts, one curly “written” script and a blocky “print” script for signs. There seems to be no upper/lower case.

I was able to identify the following glyphs that appeared so far, which seem to constitute a full alphabet. I’ve not looked at all the magic circles, the ones I checked unfortunately seem mostly gibberish. Same for the floating characters in the opening animation.

Unidentified characters are from the opening and from magic circles
Presumably these are Q and X

The magic circles appear mostly random text like this:

We see there is a BVC?2WET and an AZ?3CV. If we assume these are generated by random keystrokes on a standard Japanese keyboard then based on the latter I think ?3 is probably X so ?2 would be Q. Hopefully some more texts appear to settle this.

Deciphered texts:

the subtitles’ “wind of sun” was not helpful
If first class was in D.K.C.7 I assume 1993th class means the year is D.K.C.1999 now.
Demon King Calendar?
the other students’ badge text is the same
the numbers 0-11 (they have a 12 hour day apparently)
Thanks to the dialogue
Also thanks to the dialogue

Episode 9 has some more text and revealed ‘J’:

this lazy teacher basically reads from a teleprompter with her back to the class

This blackboard provides us the ‘J’ in “jidai”, I didn’t bother to transcribe the rest since the other unknowns don’t appear (Q and X would not turn up in Romanized Hiragana) and the fuzziness strains the eyes.

this was hard to read
the subheading is some random gibberish apparently
