Chivalry of A Failed Knight Introduction


Season 1 of the anime ended with a lot of questions in the minds of fans. Volumes 1 to 3 of the light novel got featured in the First series of the Anime.


It was first premiered under the name “Rakudai Kishi no Kyabarurii” in Japanese. It meant – the tales of a failed knight. The end of the first season was disappointing because Ikki Kurogane began his journey.


The “Blazer World” was a tough place to be. Though his duel with Stella Vermillion was a success, he continued to struggle. The rest of the series will prove himself as he comes out with a victory.


Japanese channel AT-X telecasted the 12 episodes of the Anime Series from October to December 2015. It was a decent success. Yet, there are no updates about its sequel, after the Season 1 release.

Everything we know about Chivalry of a Failed Knight so far


Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 1 ended with a twist. Ikki, who’s known as a weakling, gets to defeat a stronger opponent – Toka Todo. This was the perfect ending for this Season as it left the audience anxious to know how Ikki would make a comeback.


The story in Season 1 starts with Ikki, who faces a lot of mockery for being an F Rank Blazer at Hagun academy. This is the lowest rank, there. He finds a stunning girl in his room one day, who was changing.


She happens to be Stella Vermillion who is a member of a powerful family. She ranks high in the academy as an A-Rank Blazer. “Blazer” is the name of an alternate world where people have extraordinary powers.


They train to better their game by preparing at Hagun Academy. They all can manifest weapons at their will. There are frequent challenges to finding and rewarding the most powerful apprentice there.


This gets determined and assessed through some festivals. The Academy Director, Kuruno Shinguji understands Ikki’s potential. But, he also fears the loss of his reputation if he continued to be an F – Ranker.


So this is where Stella enters. She quickly discovers the problem. He was failing as he is wrong with the techniques and needs help in correcting those. It was the time when she gets defeated in a battle with him.


It was set up to decide the control over their shared apartment at the Academy. When his sister arrives, she finds out that Ikki had a lot of emotional baggage.


This gave her more insight into why Ikki kept failing and she sympathized. As a result of all this, Ikki can defeat some powerful higher-ranking warriors in fights. He wins over Bisho, Krihara, Ayase, and Toka Todo in the next few fights.

Expected Plot of Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2

There are rumours that all the amazing characters from the previous season are also going to be in the new season if there is going to be one.


Season 2 of Chivalry of a Failed Knight may show the next 3 or 4 volumes of the light novel. Even the zero episodes – “Chivalry of a Failed Knight Zero” could get telecasted as a single season, owing to its storyline.


Season 2 is going to be all about Ikki’s rising to power and facing deadly challenges along with it. There would also be a triangular conflict between Ikki, Stella, and her sister Shizuku.


Ikki’s nature would leave everyone confused. At Hagun Academy, there would be a lot of changes as Ryoma Kurogane, Ikki’s great-grandfather takes a greater role in shaping him. The tug of war between Ikki and his other family members will see the Director, Kurono in deep trouble.


He is an important part of Ikki’s return to success. Meanwhile, Stella’s father who’s an Emperor would try his hand at helping out Ikki and Stella in their journey. Shizuku meanwhile had other plans and ensured that she got heard or hell broke loose.

Chivalry of a Failed Knight Manga, DVD/Blu-ray, and Merchandise Sales


Sales are the lifeblood of an Anime. It determines its performance and scope of growth (i.e. sequels). If it does not make a profit, the producers are likely to abandon it.


The source material was the light novels in this case and there were even 11 Tankobon volumes. Let’s get into each and see.


Manga Sales

This table can give you an idea of how the last two Light Novels performed in the market.


Light Novel Volume


17 – released in 2019


18 – released in 2020 



The source material makers expected a better sales volume and this is also why they are likely to wind it up in 3 or 4 more volumes.


DVD/Blu-ray Sales

Close to 3000 discs were sold for the first season. This was in 2015 when it premiered for the first time. The producers got back what they invested but, the margin of profit was too low for a sequel.


If it had made close to 10,000 copies, this would have given them a good profit percentage. In such a circumstance, they’d be able to go ahead with Season 2.


Merchandise Sales

The merchandise sales were very poor. One reason was only 2 characters in the anime were highlighted – Stella and Ikki. It’s reported that some 20 products were available as merchandise, for this Anime.


Another reason it did badly was because of the wrong marketing strategy. The focus was more on the wrong audience. The generic use of other characters restricted the scope of more merchandise.


Production Cost and Success of Chivalry of a Failed Knight

The producers did not lose any money in the First Season, nor did they get much profit. This is why there’s a reluctance to do the sequel. Most sequels make less than the first season.


They calculated the drop in sales and then decided if it was less than the production cost but, the team did not proceed. Goblin Slayer did not make losses for the producers.


But, Season 2 has very few chances of making a profit.



Why Chivalry of a Failed Knight Season 2?


The First Season ended up getting decent reviews, creating a fan base, and also scope for merchandise. The last episode out of 12, ended with a lot of anxiety for the fans.


From the points we have shown above, there is enough source material and demand from fans to make the sequel. The only thing which is standing in its way is the low sales volume.


The fan demand does not fully convert into sales of Bluray discs or TV series. Now, from the story’s point of view, it’s a must to have Season 2. This is because Season 1 ends with Ikki’s coming back to form.


Season 2 will be about the Seven Star Tournament and Ikki’s performance in it. The fans would be eager to know how he manages his success to climb up the ranks.


Also, the conflicting situation he is in between Stella and Shizuku makes it interesting to delve deep. His great-grandfather’s power play with the rest of his family also marks a point of pressure on the Director of Hagun Academy – Kuruno Shinguji.


He must strike a balance between Ikki’s growth and saving him from the others too.



Popular Chivalry of a Failed Knight Characters


As you may anticipate some faces are going to make a comeback. Since details related to season 2 are not out yet, we have included only important characters from season 1.


Ikki Kurogane

He is the F–rank blazer at Hagun Academy. He was from the famous Kuragone family but, got disowned in his childhood. Later, his great-grandfather Ryoma Kurogane takes him under his wing and gets him enrolled in the Academy.

A-Rank Blazer at the Hagun Academy. Got caught by Ikki, as she was changing in his room. She tries to boss over him and then fails in the battle. She’s considered to be a rare intellectual and now sets out to get Ikki back on track.


She helps him in many battles and finally gets engaged with him. She’s also a friend of Shizuku. She possesses a device – Laevateinn. She has a bad experience with her device and noble art – Katharterio Salamandra.


It wreaked damage when she used it as a kid. This made her paranoid and worried about having to use it again. Her father was the ruler of a European kingdom called Vermilion.

Shizuku Kurogane

Shizuku Kurogane


She’s Ikki’s sister and Stella’s friend. A B- Rank Blazer at the academy, she possesses the infamous Yoishigure device. She’s also adept at Noble Arts like Shouha Suiren which gives her an advantage over many opponents of Ikki.


She could not make it to the finals of the Seven Star tournament because she got eliminated in a qualifying round. She accepts Stella as her brother’s bride. Shizuku possesses a single device called Yoishigure.


But, she has many Noble Arts. Shōha Suiren, Hisuijin, Water Prison Orb, and Aoiro Rinna are some of them. Though she was a champ, she failed in the qualifying rounds of the matches.


This can be devastating but, she doesn’t take it to heart.
