The anime adaptation of the Richard III-based gothic manga Requiem of the Rose King has been postponed to January 2022 due to production-related reasons. It was originally announced with a Fall 2021 release window.
The anime is directed by Kud Wafter and Angels of Death‘s Kentarou Suzuki, with Gamers!’s Hiroki Uchida as series composer and scriptwriter and Mewkledreamy episode 2’s animation director Tsutomu Hashizume as character designer. J.C.Staff is in charge of the animation production.
The Requiem of the Rose King manga series by Aya Kanno began in 2014 and has 15 volumes as of March 2021. Viz Media describes the story as:
Richard, the ambitious third son of the House of York, believes he is cursed, damned from birth to eternal darkness. But is it truly fate that sets him on the path to personal destruction? Or his own tormented longings? Based on an early draft of Shakespeare’s Richard III, Aya Kanno’s dark fantasy finds the man who could be king standing between worlds, between classes, between good and evil.
