posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for the television anime of Aya Kanno's Requiem of the Rose King (Bara-Ō no Sōretsu) manga began streaming a new promotional video for the anime's second half on Friday. The video reveals more cast members for the second half of the anime. The video uses a song titled "Bara Rinbukyoku" (Rose Briar Rondo) by Makoto Furukawa, who also performed the opening theme song for anime's first half.
The new cast members include:
Yūko Kaida as Jane Shore
Akira Ishida as the Duke of Richmond
Haruki Ishiya as Anthony Woodville
Atsushi Tamaru as Thomas Grey, Marquess of Dorset
Shunichi Toki as Sir Richard Grey
The Wars of the Roses grip medieval England as the houses of York and Lancaster vie for the throne. Richard is the third son of the Duke of York, who plans to take the crown.
Richard wants nothing more than for this to happen, but this innocent wish will plunge England further into the chaos of war. Meanwhile, Richard is struggling with a battle far more personal.
The anime will air for two consecutive cours (quarters of a year), for a half-year continuous run. The anime was previously slated to premiere this fall, but the production committee announced a delay in July.
Kentarō Suzuki (Angels of Death, Kud Wafter) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff, and Hiroki Uchida (Days of Urashimasakatasen, Gamers!, Merc Storia: The Apathetic Boy and the Girl in a Bottle) is supervising and writing the series scripts. Chikara Hashizume is designing the characters. Additional staff members include Kentaro Izumi (A Certain Scientific Railgun T) as the art director, Mayumi Tanahashi as the color designer, Akihiro Takahashi as the director of photography, Yoshikazu Iwanami as the audio director, Kou Otani as the music composer, and Lantis as the music producer.
