Chivalry of a Failed Knight is loved by many people all over the world. The first season was released in 2015 and after almost 5 years, we still have not received a season 2. However, there is still hope! We have a vague confirmation regarding the release of season 2. If you are one of the many die-hard fans of the series who are desperately waiting for a season 2 then, you are at the right place. I will give you all the information you need regarding the Chivalry of a Failed Knight season 2. But first, let us look back at what this show is all about.
What Is Chivalry of a Failed Knight All About?
Chivalry of a Failed Knight (also known as Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry) is a Japanese light novel series authored by Riku Misora and illustrated by Won. It is an action-fantasy show, with some ecchi thrown in to spice it up. At first glance, this anime looks like just another generic harem anime with the cliché tournament trope added in. Yes, the basic concept of the show is quite generic, and most people make up their minds about not wanting to watch this anime just from the plot.
However, the way in which this generic concept is executed is quite unique! In my personal opinion, the best aspect of this show would be romance. In most anime, the romance seems very forced; the girl just suddenly falls for the protagonist or vice versa. However, in this anime, romance is not forced at all.
We see how both the main characters slowly and realistically develop feelings for each other. There is some good fanservice in this show. However, the show does not focus too heavily on the fanservice and mostly, it feels natural. Let us take a look at the plot of this anime.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Plot:
This anime follows the story of Ikki Kurogane, a so-called failure. Ikki lives in a world where there exist a few humans with the ability to manipulate their souls to form powerful weapons. These humans are called “Blazers”, and they study and train at the prestigious Hagun Academy to become Mage-Knights. Ikki is the sole F-rated Blazer. One day, Ikki accidentally sees Stella Vermillion, an A-ranked Blazer who also happens to be a princess, naked, she gets angry and challenges him to a duel with some dire stakes. The loser becomes the slave of the winner.
The show follows Ikki as he tries to prove his strength to a world that believes him to be the weakest, all the while gaining new friends, wisdom, and experience.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Anime:
The first episode of Chivalry of a Failed Knight anime aired all the way back in 2015. The views of people regarding this anime were mixed at its initial release. However, the anime became very popular and in my personal opinion, this is one of the better harem anime out there. The anime has very good animation. The soundtracks really fit the theme and the voice actors have also done a great job. This anime might seem kind of generic at times but it is very entertaining and worth a watch.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Manga:
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Manga was actually adapted from the light novel. The manga started its production in 2014 and is just as enjoyable as the anime. The Manga goes further than the anime and covers 4 volumes of the light novel. The art of the manga is quite decent; all the characters are recognizable. At times, it seems like the art is a little rough but overall, the art is quite good.
If you love to read manga and want to catch up on the events after the ending of the anime then, I suggest that you go read the manga right now.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Light Novel:
Chivalry of a Failed Knight light novel is actually the source material for both the manga and the anime. The light novel has about 17 volumes so far and, is still continuing, and has a very good narrative and, is quite easy to read and understand.
The light novel goes more in-depth into the story and gives us a lot of extra information about each character. If you love to read then Chivalry of a Failed Knight is a good pick for you.
Chivalry Of A Failed Knight Season 2 Release Date:
Fans of the series have been waiting for a second season ever since the first season finished airing, back in 2015. But sadly, there has been no solid confirmation about the release of season 2 as of yet. Recently, however, we did get a vague confirmation for a second season or an OVA. The official websites of Silver link and Nexus revealed that a “special” of the series is coming soon. This special could be a whole new season or just an OVA. Of course, we are happy in both cases! The new season might get released in 2020 or 2021.
