Heroic Legend of Arslan Season 2 Hits in 2016

Were you a fan of this year’s The Heroic Legend of Arslan series?

Good news: a second series is on order for 2016.

That’s the word from this week’s Arslan-centered “Yashasiin! Carnival” event, which debuted a short video announcing the 2016 series.

The 2015 Heroic Legend of Arslan series, which finished up a few weeks ago, was based on an ongoing 2013 manga by Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist). That in turn was based on a series of novels by Yoshiki Tanaka (Legend of Galactic Heroes).

The original novels inspired a six-episode animated OVA back in the 90s, so if you’re looking to get your Arslan fix before 2016, that series might be worth checking out.

We’ll keep you updated on Arslan season two as more details arrive!
