Requiem of the Rose King Delayed To January 2022

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.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
