What is the plot of Arslan Senki?
The year is 320. In the Middle East, two factions are at war with each other. Their names are Pars and Lusitania. Arslan gets to see the sad realities of war like bloodshed, torture, pain, agony, and chaos at a very young age.
How did the anime start?
One day, when Arslan was only 11 years old. His father (The king of Pars) returned from a war against the Lusitanians. There were prisoners of war with them. Arslan wanted to speak with them and learn more about their life, their culture, and ideals.
In the middle of all of this, an eleven-year-old Lusitanian soldier takes the prince hostage and runs away. He drags the prince all around the area, they keep on running until they are cornered by the army of Pars and have nowhere to run.
Behind them is water, and with nowhere else to go. The young Lusitanian soldier decides to do a jump, he grabs the prince as he jumps off, Both of them are saved by the locals. However, the Lusitanian boy steals a horse and flees from the place.
He is about to be killed by someone who is familiar with the prince (Daryun), he points an arrow at that boy and just when he is about to unleash it. Prince Arslan comes in front and tells him to stop. By then he had already unleashed the arrow but because of the prince’s interference he missed his target and the boy was able to flee safely.
Now that the prince has listened to what the Lusitanian boy told him about himself and why they do what they do.
He has a lot of questions about many things like, Why don’t people just accept the life of slavery? They’ll get food and shelter than why don’t they cave in.
Especially after seeing his own men killing the Lusitanian prisoners, his mind becomes a mess.
Ignorance may be bliss, but without knowledge, one can never truly understand or realize anything.
From that day, three years pass. And another war starts!
Thus, the Heroic Legend of Arslan begins, how will he restore Pars to its former glory?
