Betrayed from within and overwhelmed by dark sorcery, the valiant armies of Pars are overrun by the warrior-fanatics of Rucitania. Escaping the destruction of his homeland, the heroic Prince Arislan begins to assemble a group of five, extraordinary allies — a priestess, an exiled warrior, a mischievous minstrel, an insightful artist and his attendant — to aid him in his fight against the Rucitanian invaders. Together, they must build an army and defeat 300,000 trained soldiers — including the mysterious Lord Silver Mask — who has also laid claim to the throne of Pars...

So Arakawa is back to action manga. I don't know anything about the novel this manga is adapted from so I shall enjoy it with fresh eyes. After Silver Spoon, I have no worries that this will be a nice serie to follow. First chapter was quite classical but I think it did its job of introducing what should be the main protagonists.

As an unnaturally heavy mist descends on the battlefield, King Andragoras and his most valued officers confer among the bodies of dead and dying soldiers. When Daryoon, a young but highly skilled officer, voices his reluctance to send men into battle under these conditions, the king, unstable and enraged, banishes him.
Now, Daryoon's new mission is to insure the safety of the King's only son, the charismatic Prince Arislan. Daryoon and Prince Arislan set off on a quest of their own, but they can't succeed alone. They must convince both Lord Narsus and his companion, the archer Elam, to join them in their quest to somehow help the soldiers win the war.
Now a group of only six they must somehow overcome an enemy of 300,000 soldiers! These unlikely soldiers have fate on their side, so anything can happen!

Ooh you choose the same picture as Miyamoto :-)
Merged. Meh, I should be more careful when using the search bar. Too lazy to use other image in this thread, but I will find a new image for other thread later |Doraku

Month long wait just to get Narsas to join was a bit painful, but the comedy provided made up for it. Arslan crew is being built up nicely, I hope the magazine allows double chapters sometimes...
And double chapters on Bessatsu don't exist as far as I know. Shingeki never had one.
This is slowly shaping up to be potentially as good as FMA was
When we can expect next chapter?

Merged threads, there was already a thread for this title, please use the "Search" function to see if the series already has an existing thread on the forums. Thanks.
Important Announcement Next Month ( Remake of the old anime ?)
I just started reading this manga. Quite awesome historical-like fantasy.
Perfect story line of the original novel and manga expression and arrangement by Arakawa are combined nicely.
I can recommend this for all of manga readers.
The manga will be big hit this year after the anime starts in April. The sales will become top 3, I guess.
