Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World is an anime series in the fantasy and romance genre that first aired in the fall of 2020. The series that is a light novel originally written by Kei Sazane is about two civilizations at war and a love story born of these two different civilizations. Shin Oonuma, who has participated in many successful projects such as Bofuri, sits in the director’s chair of the anime. It is broadcast on many local TV channels such as AT-X, Tokyo MX, ABC, TVA, BS11, and also it is licensed by Funimation. Silver Links, also the creator of Masamune Kun No Revenge and Wise Man’s Grandchild like Bofuri, takes over the studio role of the anime. The anime’s first season was broadcast in 12 episodes between October 7, 2020, and December 23, 2020. So, it’s now wondering, will there be a second season?
What is the plotline of the anime?
There is an endless war between the Heavenly Empire and the Nebulis Sovereignty for years. While Heavenly Empire is an empire that has made tremendous progress in science, Nebulis is a civilization that is home to magical girls. The ongoing war between these two civilizations has confronted the mighty swordsman Iska and the Aliceliese known as the “Ice Calamity Witch” on the battlefield. Despite being enemies, the knight falls in love with the beauty and dignity of the princess, and the princess falls in love with the knight’s power and way of life. Will conditions allow these two, who are trying to end the war in a peaceful way?
Will there be a second season of Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World?
On October 1, 2021, news that will delight anime fans was shared on the series’ Twitter account and official website. According to the news, the anime has been renewed for a sequel. This news, which is stated as a sequel, most likely points to a second season. For the renewal news that came after a year, the series team shared their excitement on Twitter with their followers as follows.
After the last season, we discussed the possibilities of the new season, and we were not very optimistic. However, it seems that “Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World” misled us and managed to get a second season’s approval. Not many details have been shared for the new season yet, but we think Silver Studio will be responsible for animations again. An official release date has not been shared with the audience yet. The anime’s first season was announced in October 2019 and met the audience in October 2020, exactly one year later. The announcement of the second season was made in October 2021, and the new season can meet the audience in October 2022; it is the most likely for now. We’ll update this section when the official release date for the new season is announced.
Manga of the series
The light novel series that the anime is adapted from is written by Kei Sazane and illustrated by Ao Nekonabe, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article. Originally published by Fujimi Shobo, LN went live in May 2017. The good news is that the light novel series is still ongoing today. In addition, it meets the readers in English thanks to Yen Press publishing. (At the time of writing, the first 6 volumes were published in English.) The first 4 volumes of the light novel series, which reached a total of 11 volumes on May 20, 2021, were adopted in the first season. It seems that the light novel can provide enough source material for the anime to have a new season.
Manga adaptation rate
Source material adequacy is important but insufficient on its own. Although disc sales have declined in recent years with the increase in online video watching habits, it is important to see the popularity in Japan. When we look at the sales of the anime, we see that it only sold 746 copies of BluRay & DVD. (Generally, it is expected to sell at least around 4,000 units for a new season renewal.)
17.7k people follow the anime’s Twitter account. It is very low compared to other animations released in the same period. It should be noted that Bofuri, also released in 2020, belonging to the same studio, was followed by 67.2k people, and the studio’s other product, My Next Life as a Villainess, which aired in the same period, was followed by 86.6k people
