Requiem of the Rose King Episode 5 Recap
Based on a supernatural manga by Kanno Aya, Requiem of the Rose King unfolds in the backdrop of the War of Roses. While it is primarily a work of fiction, the manga and anime draw on historical themes, including the struggle for the English throne.
Richard is plagued by visions of Joan of Arc, who tells him he'll bring ruin to everyone around him - and given that Richard III met a tragic ending, you can just about believe her.
In episode 5, King Edward loses some of his followers' favor due to his decision to marry Elizabeth Woodville. After the middle brother, George, expresses concern, Edward proclaims Richard to be his only ally. But Richard never felt truly close to his family, and he might soon be serving his own interests alone.
The young Earl of Buckingham - a professed Kingmaker - reminds Richard that another life-changing war could see anyone on the throne - even Richard himself.
True enough, Richard Neville, Duke of Warwick soon plans to exploit the chaos by befriending both Richard and George. Warwick encourages Richard to spend time in his estates. There, Richard meets Anne again and realizes that he cares for her in a romantic way, though he resolves not to get too attached.
Warwick is glad that Richard is falling in love with Anne, and encourages her to seduce him. While Anne likes Richard, she refuses to make him a pawn in her father's machination, but he remains resolute on the match.
Meanwhile, a pregnant Elizabeth plans to dispose of Edward when their child is born.
