Requiem of the Rose King Season 2, will it happen?
Animes are often centered around Japanese culture, but from time-to-time creators would draw inspiration from the West or other nations.
These stories become part of genres such as Historical drama and are coupled with subgenres like Dark fantasy to create intriguing plotlines.
One such series was released in the Winter 2022 slate as the anime adaption of Aya Kanno s’ manga series, Requiem of the Rose King, hit the small screens.
The premise is set in the Kingdom of England, wherein the house of York and Lancaster are torn to choose the next heir as each claims their candidate to be the right choice.
The plot follows Richard Plantagenet, who is the intersex son of the Duke of York and has been preparing to become the next since his childhood.
Along with his father, a war has been waged to reclaim the throne; however, the young Richard hides a secret for which he gets constantly rebuked by his mother.
Due to his intersexuality, Richard is constantly confused about who he is, as both men and women are attracted to him.
His mother s’ treatment has led Richard to believe he is a demon child and no one loves him.
Despite his mother s’ hatred, he finds solace in his father s’ love as the cruel voices in his head keep reminding him of his true nature.
Can Richard inherit the throne amidst the personal and political turmoil is the central plot of the show.

WHAT IS THE REQUIEM OF THE ROSE KING SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
Requiem of the Rose King Season One aired from 9th January 2022 to 26th June 2022 for 24 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio J.C. Staff on the renewal of Requiem of the Rose King Season 2.
|Requiem of the Rose King Season 1||9th January 2022|
|Requiem of the Rose King Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
Financially, the anime could not provide a massive boost, with only 1.8 million copies sold for the first 15 volumes.
Also, the manga has ended with Volume 17 hence producing a second season isn’t lucrative for the creators from a profit point of view.
As mentioned earlier, the reviews and ratings for Requiem of the Rose King Season One were below average, however, the anime was the best out of a bad bunch in the supernatural genre of the Winter 2022 slate.
Furthermore, Requiem of the Rose King Season One finale was a bittersweet ending as Richard appears to have died.
Besides, a requiem is usually a mass for the dead. There was not much left for Richard anymore, and there was not much left for Richard.
Keeping aside the reviews and ratings, a crucial factor will be the availability of the studio.
Studio J.C. Staff is one of the best production studios and can work at multiple animes in a year.
Currently, the studio has a stacked production schedule, as seven projects have been listed for 2023.Hence, it is unlikely that Requiem of the Rose King Season 2 will happen anytime soon.
If the studio does renew for a sequel, we can expect some updates on the Requiem of the Rose King Season 2 trailer and the Requiem of the Rose King Season 2 release date by Summer 2024.
