It’s time to trade the sword for the business card!

Yesterday, the official The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime website started streaming the first episode of Corporate Warrior Arslan. The three-minute short is a parody of the core series, which features the main characters in the roles of “corporate warriors.” These exceptional employees devote their all to the PARS Corporation, a modern-day organization whose purpose is both unknown and unimportant.

The entire voice cast for the main series returned to reprise their roles in the Corporate Warrior Arslan shorts.
