Chivalry Of A Failed Knight Season 2 - What We Know So Far

Light novels have become almost as popular as manga these days. From "The Apothecary Diaries" to "So I'm a Spider, So What," fans have become so drawn into the medium that this enthusiasm has turned many series into manga themselves. Such was the case with "Chivalry of a Failed Knight" written by Riku Misora and illustrated by Won. With 18 volumes published since 2013 and over 1 million copies sold, it became a manga which ran for three years in "Monthly Shōnen Gangan." Two years after its debut, "Chivalry of a Failed Knight" was also adapted into an anime produced by Silver Link and Nexus under "Negima!?" director Shin Oonuma. The anime covered the first three volumes of the light novels.

Though it has been nearly six years since the final episode aired, the novels have continued, with at least a few more volumes in the works before the final arc comes to an official end. There must be many loyal readers eagerly awaiting a new season. Here's what we can expect if the anime returns.

When is the release date for Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2?

As of right now, there is no news as to whether "Chivalry of a Failed Knight" will be getting a long-awaited second season. The series is currently available to stream on Hulu, and according to IMDb, it has gotten positive reviews with 7.4/10 stars from its over 2,000 reviews. Many fans have called the anime underrated and even godlike. A user on Crunchyroll gave it five stars, praising the quality, the romance, the fight scenes, and the moderate use of fan service. In addition, it is clear that the light novels are fairly popular — otherwise, Riku Misora and Won wouldn't have been able to keep the story going. If a second season is announced, viewers will probably have to wait a little bit longer as the pandemic continues and will most likely put delays on any production. 

In the meantime, they can always rewatch the first season or invest in the light novels to see what's in store for their favorite characters. 

Who is in Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2?

"Chivalry of a Failed Knight" has a wide cast of unique and colorful characters. It is expected that most who appeared in the first season will return if the anime goes on.

These will include the failed knight himself, Ikka Kurogane, who does not find success as a Blazer — a human who can use his soul as a weapon — and is determined to become a powerful Mage-Knight despite his shortcomings. Joining him is Stella Vermillion, a princess of the Vermillion Empire. Though she shares the same goal as Ikka, she is an accomplished Blazer that becomes even stronger with every battle. As they prepare for the Seven Star Sword Art Festival at Hagun Academy, they interact with many other students and friends, such as Ikka's obsessive sister, Shizuku; shadow controller Nagi "Alice" Arisuin; the swordsman's daughter, Ayase Ayatsuji; Hagun's student council president, Toka Todo; popular knight and bully, Hizuya Kirihara; and Itsuki, Ikka's and Shizuku's distant father.

Other characters who came in after volume 3 may show up as well, such as Amane Shinomiya, a boy who can manipulate fate to lean in his favor; Rinna Kazamatsuri, who is able to make people do her bidding through animal collars; and the leader of the Akatsuki Academy, Bakuga Tsukikage, who possesses prophetic abilities. 

What will be the plot of Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2?

If "Chivalry of a Failed Knight" is renewed, it will surely go the same route as the previous season by animating the light novels' next three volumes. The first saw the rise of Ikka and his development from being the "worst" knight to defeating Toka Todo during the selection process to proposing to Stella in front of everyone. He then becomes one of the chosen representatives for the academy and can participate in the upcoming festival. 

A second season will most likely see Ikki and his fellow representatives training for the Seven Stars Sword Art Festival, which will pit them against Blazers of other academies. They will meet new opponents, including those belonging to the Akatsuki, an organization that aims to be the most powerful of all. Fans will see even more explosive fights — and probably more development between Ikka and Stella — as Ikka continues to hone his Blazer ability and prove his worth.
