The official website for The Heroic Legend of Arslan (Arslan Senki) television anime began streaming a new commercial on Sunday. The ad announces that Yuuki Kaji (Otome Yōkai Zakuro, Attack on Titan) will play the mysterious lord Silvermask.

Silvermask: I don't need people who aren't useful to me!
Narrator: The Heroic Legend of Arslan.
Silvermask: Don't call that person a king!

The cast also stars:

  • Kenn as Gieves
  • Maaya Sakamoto as Falangies

  • The staff includes:

    Iwashiro composed the theme song "The Arslan," which he will debut at his April 4 concert at Tokyo Opera City's Concert Hall.

    The anime will premiere on Sunday, April 5 at 5:00 p.m. in Japan.

    Kodansha published the second volume in Japan in May, and Kodansha USA published the second volume in North America in November. Crunchyroll is also releasing the manga as it appears in Japan. Central Park Media released the earlier 1991-93 original video anime adaptation of the novel.

    Kodansha USA describes the manga's story:

    In the prosperous kingdom of Pars lies the Royal Capital of Ecbatana, a city of splendor and wonder, ruled by the undefeated and fearsome King Andragoras. Arslan is the young and curious prince of Pars who, despite his best efforts, doesn't seem to have what it takes to be a proper king like his father.

    At the age of 14, Arslan goes to his first battle and loses everything as the blood-soaked mist of war gives way to scorching flames, bringing him to face the demise of his once glorious kingdom. However, it is Arslan's destiny to be a ruler, and despite the trials that face him, he must now embark on a journey to reclaim his fallen kingdom.
