The June issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine is revealing on Monday that the Arslan Senki: Fūjin Ranbu (The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance) television anime series will premiere on MBS and TBS on July 3, and the series will have eight episodes.
The new season will air on Sundays at 5 p.m. on MBS and TBS, which is the "Nichigo" timeslot. The staff had announced in March that the new series would premiere in the timeslot in July. My Hero Academia began airing in the timeslot in April, and The Seven Deadly Sins: Signs of holy war special will air for four weeks in the timeslot starting in August.
The staff and cast are returning to the new series, but Kyō Yamashita is the new CG director, replacing Daisuke Suzuki, and Tatsuya Shimano is replacing Hiroshi Adachi as the modeling director. Felix Film is replacing SANZIGEN with the 3DCGI. Eir Aoi (Sword Art Online, Fate/Zero) will perform the new season's opening theme song and Kalafina (Madoka Magica, first season of The Heroic Legend of Arslan) will perform the ending theme song.
