This season’s The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance continues the story as, on the eve of Arslan’s triumphant march to retake the capital, his father (the king) escapes prison, takes charge of the army, and sends Arslan into exile. The first season of Arslan is a 25-episode epic featuring numerous battles and adventures across Arslan’s war-torn country. Dust Storm Dance, in comparison, is a meager eight episodes. While the main plot–the exiled prince and his friends attempting to raise an army by fighting pirates and corruption in a southern port city–is more of the fun you’d expect, given the first season, it is the episode-long portions that don’t focus on the prince and his friends that are the most interesting.

One of the big anime this upcoming season looks to be the second season of The Heroic Legend of Arslan. As I had never finished the first season, I made watching it a priority this past weekend. That’s when I discovered that it’s not the climatic battles or the devious plot that truly stands out, but rather the season’s final episode: the epilogue.
