The new season is set to kick off in July. The show will air on Sundays on MBS and TBS in the coveted “Nichigo” 5:00PM time slot.

Actors Daisuke Namikawa and Natsuki Hanae are slated to return as Narsus and Elam, respectively.

The Heroic Legend of Arslan is based on Fullmetal Alchemist creator’s manga of the same name. The series is being directed by Noriyuki Abe (Black Butler: Book of Circus) at studios Liden Films and Sanzigen. Character designs were provided by the team of Kazuo Watanabe and Ushio Tazawa, while Makoto Uezu was in charge of series composition.

Arakawa’s manga is an adaptation of Yoshiki Tanaka’s The Heroic Legend of Arslan novels.

Most of the cast and crew are returning for the upcoming season. Kyō Yamashita will replace Daisuke Suzuki as CG Director, while Tatsuya Shimano replaces Hiroshi Adachi as Modeling Director. CGI production is being moved to 3dCGI from Sanzigen.

Eir Aoi (Kill la Kill, Sword Art Online) will perform the season’s opening theme, while Kalafina will return to perform the closing.

FUNimation holds the North American rights to The Heroic Legend of Arslan anime series. The company streams the show on their streaming platform and on YouTube. In the UK, Viewster holds the license to the show.
