Synopsis

Betrayed from within and overwhelmed by dark sorcery, the valiant armies of Pars are overrun by the warrior-fanatics of Lusitania. Escaping the destruction of his homeland, the heroic Prince Arslan 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 Lusitanian 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.

at first i thought the title was "Aslan" and i thought "Chronicles of Narnia, anime style? Ok!"

looks interesting, the manga art reminds me of Hiromu Arakawa's work (FMA, Silver Spoon).

edit: .... and that's because it is the same mangaka okay then it is bound to be good. She's a great storyteller, I've read several of her works.

No joke. I saw the title and thought of Aslan from The Chronicles of Narnia. Then I looked at that image and saw Edward Elric. I'll just wait for the sequel, The Heroic Legend of Aslan: Prince Caspian Brotherhood.

Well this could be very interesting. Keep in mind Hiromu Arakawa is actually just adapting from a novel series by Yoshiki Tanaka the same person that done Legend of the Galactic Heroes. The only thing I be confused is whether there be enough material because of the pacing of the story is really slow (in a good way) and I still don't think it actually hasn't even finished the first act (anyone knows Galactic Heroes also takes a long time). Oh well I mean for all we knew it could get an anime in two years so we will see.

The novels for this series go back to the 80s; the OVAs had a neat Persian aesthetic, this could be pretty cool.

1986: First novel by Yoshiki Tanaka (still ongoing, 13 have been published).
1991-1995: Anime films/OVAs (6 total).
1991-1996: First manga by Chisato Nakamura.
2013: Second manga by Hiromu Arakawa.

Very interested. I wonder who will end up doing the animation? I think all the big names could be a possibility, really. A part of me hopes it isn't A-1 though. They seem to get everything big nowadays...

I LOVE the manga to death(seriously it is basically Hiromu doing Game of Thrones: The Crusades Edition(and yes I know it is based on a long running series of books)).

The problem is there just is NOT enough chapters in the manga to even do a single freaking cour, and that's not going to remedy itself soon as Arakawa is on hiatus from Arslan and Silver Spoon while she cares for a sick family member. And this is a monthly series to boot. As much as I want an anime(and trust me I DO), I don't want one until 2016 at the earliest, that way hopefully enough chapters for the first cour can be made and they can maybe finish this first arc.

Also this anime needs to be uncensored like Parasyte because it is a rather violent ass series. People getting beheaded and shit like it wasn't nothing. I mean it isn't like ultra gore, like you don't get the insanely detailed looks at the innards of people, but still it is easily Arakawa's most violent series yet.

As for studios I'd love to see animate it, Bones, Madhouse, MAPPA, and A-1 are the ones that top the list for me.

The story, and such sounds awesome, but there a big red flags about it being such a short series/not enough manga or whatnot to base a proper anime off of.
