Hm, another anime of recently started manga... But isn't it contain TOO small plot material for TV anime (even 12-episode)?

Or they will draw original novels in Arakawa style..?

Damn, it really looks like FMA. I knew it!
Yey, another anime from the character design of FMA. Gin no Saji was great.
Definitely watch!

Just like LEGEND OF MAIAN

This big news in Japan spread in Japanese old fan boys.
Tanaka Yoshiki, who wrote bestseller book "Galatic hero Legend" in 1980's is a
legendary writer in Japanese nobel book.
He introduced the concept of strategy-mind into Japanese SF nobels.
Arslan senki shocked a lot of young creaters 20 years ago.
For examle, Gen Urobuchi,Nasu kinoko,etc.

Please continue to forcus this news


yes this is important news. Arslan is one of the greatest properties you can get in Japan, it has the potential to go neck-in-neck with Legend of Galactic Heroes. However since this production is an adaptation of Arakawas manga, I am expecting something more cinematic and less dialogue-centric out as that.

So…. there are such things as miracles?

::weeps uncontrollably::

Lets hope the series doesn't end short on some unremarkable cliffhanger because as we all know Arslan is one long-running epic. Now it is based on the new manga which is not that far along, so I wonder how they plan on handling arcs, and how many cours etc…

But still , friggin Arslan is being animated again, praise be to the gods.

That'll be MAPPA. Interesting title.

"The studio is working on a mysterious untitled show due in spring 2015 that is based on an old property."
i was kind of hoping it was going to be pluto instead of this, id much prefer mappa takes on pluto while bones takes on this

Yeah, but that is mostly because no one outside of madhousemappa would do Pluto and with Arslan there is options. Hypothethically speaking I would be ok with Mappa doing both of these titles.

Watch it totally end up being A-1 Pictures somehow, the whole having the commercial thing after Seven Deadly Sins points in this direction a bit too, but of course is far from a guarantee. People always wish for a Bones or Madhouse or whatever for these kinds of shows and it pretty much always ends up being an A-1 pictures or some smaller studio.

Mappa of course would be great for this show, but I'm really not getting my hopes up too much for that. Honestly at this point I'm really just in the let it be anyone but A-1 camp for pretty much any title like this at this point. They really seem to think they're like an all around studio or even an artistic one of late, but realistically the only thing they kind of remain good at is appealing to midnight otaku and having quick access to SME talents and industry friends.

MAPPA is going to conquer the fantasy genre? Well, they're good studio, but now I even more wish they used original designs from the novel and not Arakawa's ones.
