A modern anime interpretation of Romeo and Juliet will swoon AnimeLab this October!

From KADOKAWA and studio Silver Link, (Death March to the Parallel World RhapsodyWise Man’s Grandchild) and based off a fantasy light novel, Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World is coming to AnimeLab this October!



Announced at FunimationCon 2020, this Romeo and Juliet-esque romance anime series follows the cool, disgraced knight of the science kingdom who faces off against the ice princess sorceress of the rival magic kingdom. Did we mention? They’re also falling hopelessly in love with each other.

Just in, here are just some of the series’ characters you’ll meet, including (from left to right), Iska, Aliceliese, Jhin, Rin, and Mismis!

The opening and ending theme songs and artists for the series have been revealed, too! The opening song will be performed by Kaori Ishihara and is titled “Against.” and the ending song will be performed by Aliceliese Lou Nebulis IX (CV: Sora Amamiya), titled “Koori no Torikago.” Does that artist name sound familiar? That’s because she’s the protagonist of the series!
