Chivalry of a Failed Knight

Fans Have a Special Release to Be Excited About But There are no any Updates Regarding The Release Date for ‘Chivalry of a Failed Knight: Season 2’

Despite the lack of an official release date for Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2, the producers’ official websites, Silver Link and Nexus, revealed that a “special” would be released shortly.

The first chapter of Chivalry of a Failed Knight, dubbed Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry, was a huge hit when it was released in October 2015.

Since then, fans have been eagerly anticipating the following season. However, their request has yet to be fulfilled.

Some speculated that the new season would premiere by the end of 2017, while others said that the production would be done by the end of 2018.

The year is 2021, and the fans have yet to be treated to a new season.

The viewers, on the other hand, now have reason to rejoice, as the official websites have announced that a “special” is on the way. This was the only thing that reassured the crowd that a second season was possible.

The actual release date for Chivalry of a Failed Knight Special has yet to be announced, although it is believed to be sometime in 2021 or early 2022. It’s unclear whether the special will be a new season or just an Original Video Animation (OVA).

According to Anime Next Season, there are some possible explanations for the anime’s second season’s cancellation.

The comprehensive research for the aforementioned report was divided into three sections: source material information, sales and profit information, and popularity information.

According to reports, there was enough source material to create at least five additional seasons of fantasy anime.

However, the anime did poorly in material, merchandising, and blu-ray sales, according to the data. This suggested that the producers made no money or even lost money on the first adaption, resulting in a postponement or even cancellation of a second season.

Even though the first season’s storyline was well received, the anime series’ popularity in terms of quantifiable metrics was believed to be poor. According to sources, social media promotion and products have been discontinued for the past two years.

The anime, which had twelve episodes in all and was a balanced mixture of three major genres at once—action, erotic romance, and fantasy—was based on a Japanese novel written by Riku Misora and illustrated by Won.
