Requiem of the Rose King, the manga by Aya Kanno, will get an anime that looks to be as dark as the original.
The promotional poster, released at the same time, doesn’t look any more cheerful.
Funimation has tagged their coverage of the trailer “Winter 2022”, which hints that maybe the streaming platform intends to pick up the series.
If that’s too long to wait, then there’s Viz’s English-language license for the manga. You can pick it up at ComiXology. Viz describe the series;
Richard, the ambitious third son of the House of York, believes he is cursed, damned from birth to eternal darkness. But is it truly fate that sets him on the path to personal destruction? Or his own tormented longings? Based on an early draft of Shakespeare’s Richard III, Aya Kanno’s dark fantasy finds the man who could be king standing between worlds, between classes, between good and evil.
