What is Arslan Senki?

The Heroic Legend of Arslan (アルスラーン戦記, Arusurān Senki) is a Japanese fantasy novel series. The author, Yoshiki Tanaka, started writing Arslan in 1986 and is still writing it as of 2008, with the current number of books at 14 novels and one side story in the official guidebook Arslan Senki Tokuhon. It was made into a manga (which went ahead and came up with an ending on its own), two anime films, and a four-part, unfinished OVA. In 2013, a second manga adaptation started serializing at Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine with illustrations by Hiromu Arakawa. An anime television series based on the Arakawa manga premiered in April 2015. Yoshiki Tanaka's novels have no relation to the 1976 novel called Arslan written by M. J. Engh which is set in the present.
