  • Who is the rightful King of Pars and what determines that?
    I will start off by saying that it only has 2 seasons and the 3rd season is said to come out later in 2018; therefore, I would only recommend watching this now if you just looking for new material.

    This anime is a must watch! It has the cliché concept of brothers/cousins/family fighting over who gets to sit on the throne, but the story behind how the main character Arslan fights for the ...

  • Possibly the best military/historical anime
    It has likable characters and an MC that isn't a generic overpowered magical dude with some hidden ability. The Mc matures and becomes a better leader as the anime progresses making a great character development. It also follows strategy and diplomatic struggles instead of your average power gauge anime. It also has a story of its own that fits its theme.

  • Totally different from other animes, but still so amazing!
    I don't really like long reviews, but just know that this show is so amazing. If you find Kings, knights, dark magic, eras then you are surely to love this. It has a Game of Thrones feel to it but just not as dark lol. You will love all of Arslan's companions and their different personalities jus as much as I do. I also loved watching Arslan grow in the process of his journeys and can't wait for ...

    Entertaining watch if you have nothing better to see.
    As you can tell from the title I do enjoy this show, but it could be a lot better than it is. I love the art style as it is drawn by Hiromu Arakawa(FMA, Silver Spoon etc.).
    The animation is not that great, the background characters and environments sometimes look really offputting and in larger battle scenes there are a lot of horrible 3D CG. The writing, also, is quite bad. The characters seem ...

    One Of The Best History Anime Out There
    Note: This review is based on the first and second season of The Heroic Legend of Arslan (including Dust Storm Dance). While I call this show a historical anime, and I appreciated the inspiration from real history, you do not need to like history to enjoy this show. Do not be discouraged by the idea of historical influence.

    When it comes to anime, many show like to look towards a more ...

  • Some of the best animation in a series I've seen with top notch characters.
    A fantasy-light story that blends together some fantastic characters with some of the best animation I've seen in a series. Each fight and battle feels tense and detailed, with minimal use of speed lines and CG. The characters may seem a bit tropish at first but wind up being fantastic.

    There is something that feels very genuine about the setting and cultures seen in the show. It reminded me a ...

    Daryun: Hero, Legend...seriously, its a good show guys.
    At first I was interested in the story and battle tactics that the show does a great job with but then Daryun caught my eye and its been Daryun Daryun Daryun ever since. I mean, come on.

    But seriously folks, this show is amazing. The story is top notch and engaging, and there isn't a weak character in the bunch. A solid bunch of grapes. A solid bunch of Daryun.
    A+.

  • Pretty good medival anime
    Nice to see a Middle Eastern themed anime. Even though it says the year 320, it's based on the crusades. With Pars being the Ayyubid sultanate with Saladin, and Lusitania being French obviously. Pars is basically rich and Lusitania wants to invade it, characters are pretty good and look like they have personality, will update when finished watching

  • The Historical Anime You Need
    If you want a historical anime with swords, bow and arrows and war battles, you should totally watch this anime.

    The story is like Akatsuki no Yona, crown heir overthrown from the palace, recruited bunch of characters with different abilities, and is on a journey to take back the kingdom.

    The art is well-drawn and is the same art as that of Fullmetal Alchemist and Silver Spoon since they're ...
