VIZ Media Synopsis:
Richard’s father, the patriarch of the House of York, is poised to become king of medieval England during the bloody Wars of the Roses. But just as success is imminent, he is abruptly cut down. Plunged into despair, Richard acts out in revenge and must face a powerful and beautiful new enemy.
Kanno is the author of Otomen, and so of course I will be picking this up. Oddly enough, it’s not under the Shojo Beat imprint, but that doesn’t matter.
Kanno also wrote Blank Slate, so clearly she can write different genres. I am really excited to read this, to see the difference and where it goes. And I love her art and characterization, so I’m just plain looking forward to it.
