Season 1 of the this anime ended with a lot of questions on the mind of it’s viewers. Volumes 1 to 3 of the light novel got featured in the First series of the Anime.
It was first released under the name “Rakudai Kishi no Kyabarurii” in Japanese. It meant – The tales of a failed knight.
Japanese channel AT-X telecast the 12 episodes of the Anime Series from October to December 2015. It was a decent success.
Yet, there are no updates about its sequel, after the Season 1 release.
The source material written by Riku Misora has 18 light novels. Only the first three found a place in the Anime, which was Season 1.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 1 ended with a twist. Ikki, who’s known upon as a weakling, gets to defeat a stronger opponent – Toka Todo.
This was the perfect ending for this Season as it left the audience anxious to know how Ikki would make a comeback.
The story in Season 1 starts with Ikki Kurogane, who faces a lot of mockery for being an F Rank Blazer at Hagun academy. This is the lowest rank, there.
He finds a stunning girl in his room one day, who was changing. She happens to be Stella Vermillion who is a member of a powerful family. She ranks high in the academy as an A-Rank Blazer.
“Blazer” is the name of an alternate world where the people have extraordinary powers. They train to better their game by preparing at Hagun Academy. They all have the ability to summon certain weapons at their will.
Unfortunately, there have been no formal announcements about the release of Season 2. This would show the rest of the story from Volume 4 on wards. The last volume of the light novel came out in 2020 June. It was the 18th one.
It’s obvious that there will not be more than 4 or 5 more light novel volumes. This is because the story will get concluded by then. Since it has been more than 5 years since the last Season’s release, the chances of the next Season have diminished.
Though the Anime in Season 1 had a good performance, it had not met the expectations of the film crew. This is an important deciding factor behind the release of new Seasons.
Since there are enough source materials, the popularity and acceptance of Anime also matter.
Chivalry Of A Failed Knight Season 2 should be released by late 2022 if the anime is given the official green light for the new season. The anime released its first season in 2015. The first season covered the first three volumes of the light novel. The light novel is still ongoing but in 2020, the eighteenth volume was released. This means that there is a lot of content in the source material that can be animated.
Why Has The Anime Not Received A Second Season?
It is rare to see an anime do so well and not get another season. Even highly criticized anime like Asterisk War got another season. This brings us to discuss the light novel. Although the anime series excelled, the making of another season depends a lot on the sales of the light novel. Even novel series like High School DxD often ask fans to support the author’s work to receive a new season.
Chivalry Of A Failed Knight novel series does not have bad sales. However, the sales are not exactly good enough to receive a second season. This is one of the major reasons why the anime has yet not received a new season. If you wish to see another season of the anime series, please support the light novel to increase its sales and popularity.
