Continuing on his quest to retake Ecbatana, Prince Arslan and his company march toward the city. But upon receiving news that the neighboring Kingdom of Turan is launching an assault on the Parsian stronghold at Peshawar Citadel, the prince is forced to turn back in order to defend the fortress. Amid holding off the invading forces, the Parsian army is met by an unexpected visitor.

As Arslan returns to Peshawar, Prince Hermes takes a slight detour from his clash against his cousin to search for the legendary sword Rukhnabad, which would grant him the right to rule and take back what he believes is rightfully his. However, after unearthing the lost artifact, the blade is stolen by the Temple Knights of Lusitania, prompting the masked warrior to give chase. Meanwhile in Ecbatana, the captive King Andragoras III finds an opportunity to strike and begins to make his move.

As the separate sides of the Parsian royal conflict clash, Arslan's right to the throne falls under attack. But no matter the obstacles in their way, the young prince and his loyal band of warriors charge forward to restore Pars to its former glory.

tl;dr: A sequel season that preserves good action and tactics while broadening it’s scope but fails in regards to being overtly rushed and ending at a terrible point.

This is a direct sequel to the first season but it is tremendously different. It does manage to keep the exciting action and strategies from the first season, but beyond that it felt like it was going in a completely different direction. Firstly, while the first season was the story of Arslan’s growth in finding his convictions, that isn’t even a theme in this season. Rather, this season things get a lot more complicated and it feels like ...

“Arslan Senki” is a historical fantasy that is able to accomplish pretty well what it is supposed to but not much more. Is a manga adaptation animated by SANZIGEN and LIDENFILMS studios and licensed by Funimation.

As a show, “Arslan Senki” is just what you might expect from the genre, in terms of animation it has its highlights, but it also has some not so well achieved moments. The characters and background art-style and design are good, which is an essential in these kinds of ...

The great continuation of our freeloader prince Arslan and his demigod friends who are able to bend the plot at their will. I’ll keep this review short and will include some minor spoilers.

The second season of Arslan was a relief, mainly due to the fact that they shortened down the runtime of the show to a measly 8 episodes. The reason why I continued with Arslan Senki and decided to watch the second season was to get a sense of completion and a sense of fulfillment, knowing that this train wreck of a series has finally come to an end. I was wrong as Arslan ...
