The November issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine reported that Hiromu Arakawa's manga of Yoshiki Tanaka's The Heroic Legend of Arslan (Arslan Senki) novel series will have an "earth-shaking important announcement" on November 9.
Central Park Media describes the story in the earlier 1991-93 original video anime adaptation:
As an unnaturally heavy mist descends on the battlefield, King Andragoras and his most valued officers confer among the bodies of dead and dying soldiers. When Daryoon, a young but highly skilled officer, voices his reluctance to send men into battle under these conditions, the king, unstable and enraged, banishes him.
Now, Daryoon's new mission is to insure the safety of the King's only son, Prince Arislan. Daryoon and Prince Arislan set off on a quest of their own, but they can't succeed alone. They must convince both the Lord Narsus and his companion, the archer Elam, to join them in their quest to somehow help the soldiers win the war.
Now a group of only six they must somehow overcome an enemy of 300,000 soldiers! These unlikely soldiers have fate on their side, so anything can happen!
Kodansha published the second volume in May, and Kodansha USA is publishing the manga in print in North America. Crunchyroll is also releasing the manga as it appears in Japan. Tanaka wrote Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Sohryuden - Legend of the Dragon Kings, and Tytania — all of which inspired anime.
