In addition to the trailer, the director of Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World, Yasufumo Soejima shared a comment:
“Alice and Iska. They are the best rivals who respect each other and improve each other, and the ‘tension and tenderness’ of their relationship is an irresistible attraction! The delicate yet bold drama and worldview that unfolds from there! I am very happy to be involved in the creation of the anime Our Last Crusade. We have been communicating with the original author, Sazane-sensei, and have carefully and meticulously worked out the details of the project to produce a film that will be enhanced as a visual work. Please look forward to it!”
Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World is a light novel series written by Kei Sazane and illustrated by Ao Nekonabe. It started serialization in 2017. Yen Press licensed the light novel and describes the series as:
Love is a battlefield
For years, a great war has raged on between the scientifically advanced Empire and a paradise of witches known as the Nebulis Sovereignty. This age-old battle sets the scene for a fateful encounter between two young combatants: an imperial swordsman, Iska, and the witch princess, Aliceliese. As sworn enemies, they vow to cut each other down in order to unite their worlds, and yet Iska finds himself entranced by her beauty and righteousness, while Aliceliese is moved by his strength and resolve. In the midst of a never-ending war that forbids them from being together, they have no choice but to destroy each other-or can they find another way?
