In the prosperous kingdom of Pars lies the Royal Capital of Ecbatana, a city of splendor and wonder, ruled by the undefeated and fearsome King Andragoras. Arslan is the young and curious prince of Pars who, despite his best efforts, doesn't seem to have what it takes to be a proper king like his father.
At the age of 14, Arslan goes to his first battle and loses everything as the blood-soaked mist of war gives way to scorching flames, bringing him to face the demise of his once glorious kingdom. However, it is Arslan's destiny to be a ruler, and despite the trials that face him, he must now embark on a journey to reclaim his fallen kingdom.
Good first episode, the OSTs are fitting. As expected of these kind of stories there are many characters and a lot of weird names...
Arslan looks so girly in the ED.
The 2D art is great though I really have to say that the CGi looked cringeworthy from time to time. Especially when the soldiers were running through the city. That needs to improve.
I won't expect much from an 11 year old prince yet so I geuss he will learn sooner or later that slavery and everything else he deems good is cruel and wrong.
Really enjoyed episode 2, Daryun is absolutely awesome , love the chars, how the trap was set, everything was great !! Seems that this anime may, hopefully, be one of my fave this season along with Gintama and Kekkai Sensen.
Karlan was the mole, it was so obvious that it was a trap, pride is a dangerous thing. Arslan could be a bastard, I'd like him to have a good discussion with his dad, if he doesn't die.
The sword training paid, Arslan has done well on the battlefield, the three kids died happy I guess...
Checked out episode 1 last night. I like this a lot!
I'm with sky on the CGI being cringe worthy but everything else was great. This seems like it's going to be one of my favorites.
