Matty has proven to be one of, if not the, strongest student at the Second Academy. The teachers ask him to lead a class on wordless magic casting, and his condition is being able to train with the two sisters, Lurie and Alma, in the dungeon below the school. He teaches them more wordless magic, but also fighting and weapon styles that compliment their crests. The headmaster enters the three into a battle with First Academy, something they haven't won in years, but with Matty's special skills and the sisters' extra training, they trounce the First Academy. But, Matty also discovers one of the Magical Chosen Ones, special extra strong sages, is actually a demon in disguise. He theorizes that the reason magic and knowledge has been derailed in this time period, is from demons messing with human society. Now, he has a few months to get everything ready for a potential demon onslaught.
I was thinking it would take a lot longer for Matty to figure out what has happened to this world, but we already have a potential theory of what has happened. There is also some questioning how Matty is so amazing at everything and whether he's a demon or not, so that's an improvement over other reincarnation manga where the main character is super gifted and nobody bats an eye at it. We also see some more game manga tropes in this volume, like dungeons and leveling up, so in some regard, this series is coming more in line with other stories instead of standing apart. It's still entertaining enough that I'll keep giving it some more volumes.
