Synopsis

Under the guidance of ruthless warrior King Andragoras III, the kingdom of Pars prospers, while the naive and gentle prince Arslan trains to continue his father's legacy. Arslan believes Pars to be a joyous and righteous land, until a captured slave his age from the hostile nation Lusitania escapes and takes him hostage, revealing to Arslan the horrors and cruelty slaves are subject to. Arslan is rescued, but the encounter leaves an impression on him.

Three years pass, and Arslan's first battle against the Lusitanian army has come. Through the Lusitanian use of spies and traps, the battle ends in disaster, and the majority of Parsian troops are slain. With the aid of his loyal friend and bodyguard Daryun, the stricken prince barely manages to escape with his life. With his father nowhere to be found and his homeland now occupied by the enemy, Arslan loses everything in one fell swoop.

Seeking shelter, Daryun takes the prince to his friend Narsus, an eccentric but brilliant strategist. With the help of Narsus and various other people he meets along the way, Arslan begins his campaign to reclaim his kingdom. The path is riddled with many challenges, from the greedy nobility to the mysterious warrior known as Silver Mask. Nonetheless, Arslan refuses to falter in his mission to save Pars from both its enemies and its own corruption.

Preliminary (40/? eps)
The Heroic Legend of Arslan is set in a fictional version of the Middle East. This is a refreshing change.

Arslan is sensitive and wants his parent's affections, he’s kind but also can’t turn his eyes away from the war. He’s not a typical hot-blooded hero. He’s not overly strong or confident but not horrible weak either, and that’s what makes his journey appealing.

Arakawa’s artwork is clearly laid-out and easy to follow. She uses a mix of small and large panels to add visual variety. Lots of greytones are used, making this look more like a black, white, and grey manga rather than a black and ...

I really love Arslan Senki, since it was my first Anime and also my first Manga. Now that I have reread and caught up with it, I can't wait for the story to continue. This series will always have a special place in my heart, so I might not be competely objective, but I strongly advise you to check it out.

Story
The story is great! The actions of the characters, always feel like they do, what they would do in their situation and it rarely feels like something happens just for the plot. There are some fantasy elements, which I honestly think the series would be ...
