The hit finale on December 19 in the same year. Six years later, the hype for the show is still the same, and the fans are waiting for a sequel. However, we still don’t know if we’re going to witness one later this year.
Chivalry Of A Failed Knight is an adaptation of a light novel series by Riku Misora, which was produced into an anime series by Silver Link/ Nexus. The author of the novel Riku Misora and illustrator Won have done a great job together, including Silver Link, who brought the characters into action.
We know the novel series was already a hit as it had hit the record of highest sales by selling 1.5 million copies. The anime breaking the barriers got immense popularity and was even featured in the top-selling anime chart.
Six years later, fans are still excited about a second season. The only problem is that we still do not have any official news regarding the same.
Chivalry Of A Failed Knight- The Plot
Rakudai Kishi is a famous magical anime show with solid animation. The story starts with Kurogane Ikki, an ordinary high school student who is a failed knight, as the title says. He lives in a magical world with few humans with the ability to manipulate their souls to form weapons. These humans study at Hagun Academy to be trained to become Mage-Knights. These humans are known as Blazers.
Kurogane Ikki, in the show, is portrayed as useless, unworthy, and an F-grade knight with no skills being a blazer. He develops potential and pays heed to his learnings when he encounters a half-naked princess Stella Vermillion. He realizes the importance of learning powers when he faces a duel with Stella. Not only this, he decides to rise above the negativity that others have for him.
Until the finale of the debut season, we did not know if Kurogane could prove himself worthy or if there was further development in his and Stella’s relationship.
All the questions will remain unanswered until we have a second installment to the show.
The Cast: Who Can We Expect?
Season 2 might have some additional characters, but we are sure who will return as themselves back for now.
- Rayota Osaka as Ikki Kurogane
- Shizuka Ishigami as Stelia Vermillion
- Nao Touyam as Shizuka Kurogane
- Shintaro Asanuma as Naga Arisuin
- Yuu Kobayashi as Ayase Ayatsuji
Even after being an anime fantasy, the characters have to build a mark on the viewer’s heart, and they want them to return on TV as the same.

It also had a manga series which was collected in 11 volumes. The Manga series was illustrated by Megumu Soramichi.
