The fight for love continues!
The official website for the Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World TV anime revealed tonight that a second season of the romantic fantasy anime adaptation was in production. A teaser visual was unveiled alongside the news showing that love and war sometimes go hand in hand. The original cast is set to return for the sequel.
The original Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World light novels are penned by Kei Sazane, with Ao Nekonabe drawing the original illustrations. 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 six volumes so far with the sixth volume scheduled to be released on October 12, 2021. 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?
The first season of Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World aired in the fall 2020 anime season and was streamed by Funimation.
