Amazon is listing that a limited edition version of the sixth volume of Yoshiki Tanaka and Hiromu Arakawa's The Heroic Legend of Arslan (Arslan Senki) manga will bundle a DVD. Amazon lists that the limited edition of the volume will ship in Japan on December 9 and the set is retailing for 3,480 yen (about US$32).
The listing does not state if the DVD will contain anime footage.
A limited edition version of the fifth volume (pictured at right) will also bundle a DVD on May 9. The Honya Club retailer is listing that Arakawa is supervising the "original DVD," which will feature "another comedy story" that takes place in the middle of the war. In the story, Gieve gives Arslan a love lesson, and the romances of Daryun, Narsus, and "that hero" are also revealed.
Arakawa launched The Heroic Legend of Arslan manga in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2013. The manga adapts Tanaka's novel series.
The television anime adaptation of the manga premiered in April 2015 and ran for 25 episodes. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. A second season of the anime titled Arslan Senki: Fūjin Ranbu (The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance) will premiere in July.
Kodansha Comics published the fourth volume in North America last December. Crunchyroll is also releasing the manga as it is published in Japan. Central Park Media released the earlier 1991-93 original video anime adaptation of the novels.
The manga also inspired the Arslan: The Warriors of Legend video game that shipped in Japan last October, and shipped in the West on February 9.
