Spinoff to include scenarios not included in the manga’s main story ended on Thursday
Kodoani.com – February issue of Monthly Princess of Akita Shoten announced on Thursday that author Aya Kanno will launch a spinoff manga titled Requiem of the Rose Kin (Bara-O No Soretsu) in the magazine’s April issue on the 4th. Kanno will once again draw the spin-off, and the manga will feature stories not covered in the manga’s main story.
The February issue of Monthly Princess also published the final chapter of the main manga.
The manga’s dark fantasy story is adapted from Shakespeare’s Richard III. Viz Media licensed the manga and it describes the story:
Richard’s father, the patriarch of the House of Commons of York, was poised to become king of medieval England during the bloody Wars of the Roses. But just when success was imminent, he was suddenly abandoned. Drowning in despair, Richard acts for revenge and is faced with a powerful and beautiful new foe.
Kanno (Otomen) launched Requiem of the Rose King in Akita Shoten’s Monthly Princess magazine in October 2013. An adaptation of Yō Makusu’s novel was published on December 15.
Kineko Abekawa launched a spin-off manga titled King of Idol Bara-Ō no Gakuen (King of Idol Rose King Academy) in Monthly Princess in January 2021.
The manga is adapting an upcoming television anime that will premiere on January 9. The anime was previously slated to premiere in the fall of 2021, but the production committee announced the postponement in July.
