Yen Press has licensed the Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World light novel series for an English-speaking audience, having released three volumes so far with the fourth volume scheduled to be released on September 22, 2020. Yen Press describes the first volume as such:
Love is a battlefield
For years, a great war has raged on between the scientifically advanced Empire and a paradise of witches known as the Nebulis Sovereignty. This age-old battle sets the scene for a fateful encounter between two young combatants: an imperial swordsman, Iska, and the witch princess, Aliceliese. As sworn enemies, they vow to cut each other down in order to unite their worlds, and yet Iska finds himself entranced by her beauty and righteousness, while Aliceliese is moved by his strength and resolve. In the midst of a never-ending war that forbids them from being together, they have no choice but to destroy each other-or can they find another way?
No broadcast date for Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World has been announced as of yet.
