At present, Iska, a master swordsman from the Empire, and Aliceliese, the “Ice Calamity Witch” from Nebulis’ ruling family are determined to kill each other on the battlefield but desire to bring peace. They decide to settle for each other first and then bring closure to this war.

Let’s Have a Recap of Our Last Crusade Season 1
Astral power exists in the world and is wielded by astral mages. Fearing this destructive power, the “Empire” is eradicating everyone who displays magical power, especially the Nebulis Sovereignty. This bitter conflict raged war that is still ongoing for over a century. The talented knight Iska is sent to prison after he frees an imprisoned witch but is set free after a year to hunt down Aliceliese, the “Ice Calamity Witch”.

Has the Release Date Been Finalized for Our Last Crusade Season 2?
Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World Season 2 release date is set in 2023. Earlier, there were rumors suggesting that Our Last Crusade will release in the Fall of 2022 but soon Crunchyroll came forward to respond to these speculations. The company clarified that they have licensed the second season of Our Last Crusade and it is going to release on the platform in 2023.
Though the showrunners and its official networks are yet to reveal the official release date of Our Last Crusade Season 2, we can expect the season to release before mid-2023. As the first season gave us 12 episodes full of fantasy romance, the same is expected with Our Last Crusade Season 2. We hope that Silver Link provides us with more details and insights into this upcoming season along with a confirmation on its release date.
Our Last Crusade Season 2 Plot Expectations!
Our Last Crusade is expected to follow the events mentioned in Volume 5 of the original light novel version. We will see the continuation of Sisbell and her attempts in detecting the conspiracy against the Nebulis Sovereignty. We will be witnessing the action, romance, and assassination attempts in this upcoming season.
The show makers are yet to give an official synopsis of the show and we are unclear how much of the storyline will be covered in Our Last Crusade Season 2. It appears that the anime story is moving slowly to create plenty of seasons with the available volumes. It may cover 4-5 volumes of the light novel series in perhaps, 12 episodes in this new season.
