Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World is an anime series in the fantasy and romance genre that first aired in the fall of 2020. The series which is a light-hearted novel originally written by Kei Sazane is about two civilizations at war and a love story born from these two different civilizations. Shin Oonuma, who has participated in many successful projects such as: Bofuri, sits in the anime’s director’s chair. It is broadcast on many local TV channels such as AT-X, Tokyo MX, ABC, TVA, BS11, and it is also licensed by Funimation† Silver Linksalso the creator of Masamune Kun No Revenge and Grandchild of the wise man like Bofuri, takes over the studio role of the anime. The first season of the anime aired in 12 episodes between October 7, 2020 and December 23, 2020. So the question now is whether there will be a second season†
What is the storyline of the anime?
There has been an endless war between the Celestial Empire and Nebulis sovereignty for years. While Heavenly Empire is an empire that has made huge strides in science, Nebulis is a civilization that is home to magical girls.

Despite being enemies, the knight falls in love with the beauty and dignity of the princess, and the princess falls in love with the knight’s strength and way of life. Will circumstances allow these two who are trying to end the war peacefully?
Will there be a second season of Our Last Crusade of the Rise of a New World?
on October 1, 2021, news that will please anime fans, was shared on the series’ Twitter account and its official website. According to the news, the anime has been renewed for a sequel. Listed as a sequel, this news most likely points to a second season. For the renewal news coming after a year, the series team shared their excitement on Twitter with their followers as follows.
After last season we discussed the possibilities of the new season and we were not very optimistic. However, it seems that “Our Last Crusade of the Rise of a New World” misled us and managed to get approval for a second season. Not many details have been shared for the new season yet, but we think Silver Studio will be responsible for animations again. An official release date has not yet been shared with the public. The anime’s first season was announced in October 2019 and met audiences in October 2020, exactly one year later. The announcement of the second season was made in October 2021, and the new season can meet the audience in October 2022† it is most likely for now. We will update this section when the official release date for the new season is announced.
Manga of the series
The light novel series from which the anime is adapted is written by Kei Sazane and illustrated by Ao Nekonabe, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article. Originally published by Fujimi Shobo, LN went live in May 2017. The good news is that the light novel series is still going on today. Moreover, it meets the readers in English thanks to the publication of Yen Press. (At the time of writing, the first 6 parts were published in English.) The first 4 parts of the light novel series, which reached a total of 11 parts on May 20, 2021, were adopted in the first season. It seems that the light novel can provide enough source material for the anime to have a new season.
Adequacy of the source material is important, but insufficient in itself. Although disc sales have declined in recent years with the increase in online video viewing, it is important to note its popularity in Japan. When we look at the sale of the anime, we see that it has only been sold 746 copies of BluRay and DVD. (Generally expected to sell at least around) 4,000 units for a new season extension.)
17.7k people follow the animes Twitter account† It is very low compared to other animations released in the same period. it should be noted that Bofurialso released in 2020, belonging to the same studio, was followed by 67.2k people, and the studio’s other product, My next life as a villainwhich aired during the same period was followed by 86.6k people
