The American streaming giant Funimation announced on Thursday that they will stream the Requiem of the Rose anime.

The anime will debut on Tokyo MX, Sun TV, and KBS Kyoto on January 9, and on BS11 on January 11.

The anime will be airing for two back to back cours, for a half-year nonstop run.

The manga’s dull dream story adjusts Shakespeare’s Richard III.

Viz Media authorized the manga, and the company portrays the story:

“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.”
