Synopsis

The crown of England has been hotly contested throughout history, and in the Middle Ages, a series of great civil wars becomes known as the War of the Roses. Claiming a right to the throne, the Duke of York seeks to unseat King Henry VI and his heir in order to become king himself.

On a dark day filled with many ill omens, the Duke gains a son: Richard Plantagenet, third of his name. Neither male nor female, but instead possessing characteristics of both sexes, Richard III is immediately reviled by his mother. Her hatred defines his childhood, leading to a deep disgust toward his own body and an adverse reaction to being called a demon.

Richard grows up troubled by visions of England's former foe, Joan of Arc, who taunts that he will bring ruin to all who know him. He believes that he can attain salvation by helping his father achieve his destiny of becoming the king. However, cursed by the expectations of both his mother and Joan, will Richard's actions instead drag his family down into darkness?

this won't be the most coherent review but i absolutely adore baraou no souretsu! i read the whole thing so far in about four sittings because i was so intrigued.

Richard is a tragic and cool character and observing how each character treats him is very interesting. his internal struggles are unlike any characters i've ever seen before. we get to see the evolution of how he feels about his body, and about gender itself, like how it determines so much of your life, especially in the 1400s or whatever.

it isn't a spoiler to say it is a tragic story so far, but i can't ...

I really wanted to give this manga a chance but it just gets progressively worse. I'm surprised how no one mentions some things that bothered me a lot. How can people see relationship between Henry and Richard as normal, it makes me uncomfortable just thinking how people don't mind a romantic relation between them while there are decades of differences in their age. Also the transphobia, I get that transphobes exist and they do act like this but it feels like the author doesn't know how to portray main characters gender and how it is.

I'm not going to get into details and explain why ...

If you like Shakespeare or medieval fantasy this is a great manga to read. Requiem of the Rose King is based off of (or at least heavily inspired by) the story of the Wars of the Roses. The characters are interesting, the story is sad but compelling and the art is top notch. Richard especially is interesting because intersex representation has little to nothing at all and I'm glad it's put on to a character that really grows throughout the series. Some would call it BL but it's a lot more then that. It's hard to put down the book and each val ends on ...
