Our Last Crusade or The Rise of a New World: Release Date, Visuals, News

What happens when a modern Romeo and Juliet tale causes either the world to either destruct or unify humanity under one name? 

A cultural clash of fantasy and action-romance is the answer to Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World.

Kei Sazane wrote the light novel series in 2017, and so far, there are nine published volumes serialized by Kadokawa.

The anime adaptation will be premiering this October. Let’s discuss its release date and plot in this article. 

1. Release Date

The TV adaptation of Kimi to Boku no Saigo no Senjou, Aruiwa Sekai ga Hajimaru Seise was announced last year at the Fantasia Bunko Dai Kanshasai 2019 event.

The official website of Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World announced that the anime will premiere in October 2020 and will be streamed on Funimation in the United States.

Currently, the exact date of release is not announced. We will update this article when we have the premiere date. 

Non-novel readers must be crying in exasperation thinking, not another isekai, but this is just a non-typical fantasy where the action is the priority while romance takes the back seat.

No wonder the anime garnered so much attention!!

2. Key Visuals

The official website has released the main and supporting cast’s character designs, along with a key visual.

Both videos are similar, but the second one reveals the voice cast and is a bit more detailed.

It sets the world of a technologically advanced Empire and its successor, Iska. He seems to be handcuffed but is set free and given two swords, Black and White.

Iska and his friends are met with an ambush from their enemies, witches of Nebulis, where he meets Aliceliese.

The scenes show their confrontations with each other and the way they fall in love, with the ending theme in the background.

The trailer gives a very serious vibe, with much attention given to the ongoing war. The contrast between the cute princess and the cold knight is also interesting to note.

These enthralling videos have attracted the attention of anime fans around the world. But do they like it?

4. Expected Plot

A great war has raged for years between the technologically advanced Empire, and the country of witches, Nebulis. 

The story focuses on the Empire’s strongest knight and successor, Iksa, who meets and falls for the beautiful princess of Nebulis, Aliceliese.

The two first meet on a battlefield and become mortal enemies. Pride, patriotism, and families on the line they need to win their respective wars. 

But, fate mocks them when love blooms between them. The world’s tension heightens even more, and the conspiracies of the nations become even more tangled.

The story that has too many questions unanswered is an adventure full of thrills and romance.

What is the right thing that a Prince and a Princess need to do?

The start of any gripping story is its imagery, so let’s see how they look like!

5. Fan Reactions to Visuals, PV

The nice art, designs, and fight animation look clean and impressive. It is no wonder the fans are proud to exclaim that this show would be one of the best and most liked anime this year.

The animation aside, the plot of the series has gotten many viewers hooked on to the trailer with its bright and then dark colors, and a good OST in the background; we can’t wait for the show to release in October.

Now that we know the series is going to be ‘beautiful and visually attractive,’ let’s discuss the staff creating it.

Animation Quality

The animation is top-notch quality. The choreography of the fights and the animation feel like this show will blow the action anime out of the park.

Since it’s not a pure action anime, but a fantasy action, the show is sure to have more magical elements and would be visually more appealing.

Though the studio’s previous anime shows have said to be a bit unstable in its characters, the October release can prove it wrong.

6. Popularity of the Light Novel

Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World was serialized in 2017. A year later it got adapted into a manga illustrated by Okama.

All the loyal fans of the novel from which this anime is adapted have very high hopes.

They expect real thrill and entertainment, which they felt while reading the novel; let’s look at this in detail.

Fan Expectations 

The first impressions anyone who read the summary got was this series is a Romeo and Juliet minus the double suicide, hopefully.

The story takes place in a fantasy world where it’s all witches vs. technology, with the leaders falling in love with their enemies.

The series has a star cast of Shin Onuma and Mirai Minato as the directors, Kento Shimoyama handling series composition, Kaori Sato on character designs, and Elements Garden on music composition.

The announcements of Silver Link. and the staff raised the expectation bar of the fans. 

Let’s see how the studio has met this challenge, starting from the story of the show.

7. Theme Songs

The music composer is Elements Garden, who has made the music for BanG Dream, Dance with Devils, and Uta no Prince-sama.

The opening theme, Against, will be performed by Kaori Ishira. While Sora Amamiya will sing the ending theme, Koori no Torikage or Cage of Ice. The ending theme was revealed slightly in the trailer.
