It was announced at Sunday's Arslan Senki (TV) event, Yasashuiin! Carnival, that the series will receive a new TV anime production in 2016.

The Arslan Senki TV series is an adaptation of Hiromu Arakawa's manga rendition of the semi-historical epic Arslan Senki by Yoshiki Tanaka. The novels were previously adapted into an OVA series between 1991 and 1995. The TV series ended its two-cours run in September 2015.

Further information on the new work will be announced on the official website and Twitter account.

I'm glad to know of this 😭😭😭😭😭
The cliffhanger from the first season was too much.
Well if this will be a sequel that is.

I am okay with this. Arslan was one of better shows this year. Want to see how it ends.

Why would they make a new adaptation of a series that was just recently adapted half a year ago...

Season 2? Aww yiss.

Not 100% confirmed yet. It mentions a new TV season though so we'll have to wait for more info in the future.

Come on.. we all know it's gonna be season 2, it would be dumb to be anything else.

Arslan Senki was a pretty decent series. Flawed up the ass, but a pretty decent series nonetheless.

Looking forward to Season 2.

That's alright. Arslan himself is probably the least interesting character of the series though. I hope he'll get at least some kind of characterization beyond the "Look at me I'm such a kindred spirit hurr free the slaves! Love and peace!"

Really none of the characters are very well fleshed out. The cast is really flat imo, though I think Silvermask is really cool. If not for him (I assume) taking a central role in the next season, I wouldn't be nearly as excited.

So much win!
2nd season please ;-;

Sweet hopefully it is a sequel. I don't see the reason for a reboot that quickly. Also i hope they get a better budget lol

I was one of those people who thought the possibility would be low since the sales weren't so good, but I'm happy I really enjoyed this series and I hope Akatsuki no Yona eventually gets another season too.

First season was disappointing imo. Hope this will be better.

agree, over-hype and and overrated but not match the expectation.
especially the main prota always act like typical shonen jump hero...

Yes I love Arslan senki. The ending of season 1 din't complete the Parslan conquer ! and the love story of Arslan..

Hallelujah, this must be the work of Yaldabaoth! Now I just cross my fingers and hope for someone to adopt poor Gangsta.
