Richard Plantagenet has dedicated his whole life to becoming strong enough to fight alongside his father, the Duke of York. Together they have waged war to reclaim the right to the throne of England from King Henry VI and the House of Lancaster. However, the young Richard hides a secret—one that his mother scorns him for, which the cruel voices in his head never fail to remind him of. Even amid his personal turmoil, he is fortunate to find solace in the light of his father's love. But when the War of the Roses takes a turn for the bloodier, the fervent ambitions of Richard grow while his old loyalties splinter, threatening to taint his family's path to glory.

You know what, despite being super confused and the god awful animation, I managed to like Baraou no Souretsu. The only problem with this is the animation and i guess the pacing because there is too much manga stories and not enough episodes. But hey! I stilll managed to enjoy it, it introduced me ti my favourite manga and lastly, it finished the story which was what I, an EN manga reader can't get bcuz the manga is not fully translated. They ended the anime very well too. But anyway not as bad as everyone says, it has a decent story.

Of all the historical events in notable history, the War of the Roses happening in the mid-to-late 15th Century (22 May 1455 - 16 June 1487) that's also known as the Civil War, was a very notable harbinger series of tumultuous wars where people fought over control of the English throne, supporting for the rival cadet branchrd of the royal House of Plantagenet in one of two camps: the House of Lancaster (birthed when King Henry III of England created the Earldom of Lancaster that was named for his 2nd son Edmund Crouchback in 1267) or the House of York (descending from the male line ...

BUY THE MANGA! The Anime is important to me I really loved the whole story and I am happy I have watched the anime so I got to buy the manga.
This review contains spoilers:

First of all: The story itself has deep impact and meaning. After a few episodes I really loved the concept but was a little disappointed by the artwork. That is imo increasing the more you watch. I honestly did not notice how "bad" the animation was after I read a few reviews and noticed myself. Like background characters are not even worth to get faces... Not like in the manga. But on ...
