Much to the relief of fans, the second season of “The Heroic Legend of Arslan” has been confirmed and it seems that there will be more action-packed battles between armies of Lusitania and Par.
Rumours regarding another season had been surfacing on internet for some time as there is still a lot of story from the manga counterpart that has not been covered. Also, several conflicts were left unresolved that will be hopefully solved in the second season.
Lusitanian forces are still ruling the Par kingdom, while what sort of mission has been assigned to Gieve is yet to be revealed. However, the biggest question of the entire story will be hopefully revealed in Season 2 – who is Arslan’s parents?
“The Heroic Legend of Arslan” is a manga series on which the anime is based. Season 1 of the anime adaptation aired on 5 April, 2015, and concluded on 27 September, with a total of 25 episodes.
The synopsis of the anime, as stated by Funimation, reads:
“In the kingdom of Pars lies the Royal Capital of Ecbatana, a powerful city ruled by the fearsome King Andragoras. Arslan, the 14-year-old prince of Pars, is a green ruler and lacks the fierce leadership skills possessed by his father.
“After his father falls victim to a treacherous plot headed by one of his most trusted comrades, the kingdom of Pars falls in the war with the neighbouring nation of Lusitania. Narrowly escaping with his life, Arslan must embark on a journey to reclaim the fallen kingdom and fulfil his destiny as ruler of Pars.”
Though there is no official confirmation date for Season 2, When-will-net has suggested that “The Heroic Legend of Arslan” Season 2 will air in winter 2016.
