The TV anime adaptation for Hiromu Arakawa and Yoshiki Tanaka’s historical epic manga, The Heroic Legend of Arslan, will officially get a new anime next year as announced during the anime’s official event, “Yashasiin! Carnival.” The announcement video for the upcoming 2016 TV anime has also been streamed by NBC-Universal Anime and Music’s official YouTube page has also been streamed.

It was also revealed that the anime’s official twitter page and official website, along with other venues, will be making more announcements about this second anime soon.

The anime is based on Full Metal Alchemist and Silver Spoon mangaka, Hiromu Arakawa’s bestselling manga, which itself is based on Legend of the Galactic Heroes creator, Yoshiki Tanaka’s epic historical novel. The series follows Prince Arslan, who together with Daryun and his other subjects, must retake his kingdom of Pars from invaders. The first TV anime ended with fans left hanging as it ended with Arslan’s army ready to march into the capital.
