The author Aya Kanno announced on his Twitter account that he had completed the manuscript of the last chapter of the manga Baraou no Souretsu (Requiem of the Rose King). Kanno also noted that he is considering writing a side story or prequel once the main story ends, but he hasn't made the final decision yet.

On the other hand, Kanno started to publish the manga in the magazine princess from the publisher Akita Shoten in November 2013. The publisher published the thirteenth anthology in February 2020, followed by the fourteenth on September 16 in Japan.

The piece inspired an anime adaptation produced by the studios JCSTAFF, Headed by Kentarou suzuki (Kud Wafter, Satsuriku no Tenshi) and scripts written by Hiroki uchida (Panzerjagd no Fantasia, Schwarzesmarken, Suisei no Gargantia: Mizuhana no Bellows), planned for the autumn 2021 season (October-December).

Summary of Baraou no Souretsu

The crown of England has been fiercely contested throughout history and a series of major civil wars in the Middle Ages are known as the "War of the Roses". The Duke of York claims the right to the throne and seeks King Henry VI. and defeat his heir to become king himself.

On a dark day full of bad omens, the Duke has a son: Richard Plantagenet, the third of his name. Neither man nor woman as he has both sexes. Richard III is immediately rejected by his own mother, so that childhood hatred becomes daily bread, leading him to hate his own body and to be called a "demon" by others.

Richard worries when he has visions of England's former enemy Joan of Arc who mocks him for ruining anyone she ever meets. Since then, Richard has believed that he could escape his fate by helping his father become king. But will Richard's actions, cursed by the very low expectations of his mother and Juana, sink his family?
