I binge watched The Heroic Legend of Arslan Season 2 today. As season 1 was, it was great. The story progression flowed smoothly, and Narsus’ intellect and flawless military strategy were a joy to watch unfold. Some plot twists were thrown in that kept season 2 engaging to watch, such as, King Andragoras escaping his prison cell at Pars castle, and taking Guiscard hostage to make his way out of Lusitanian-controlled Pars. I enjoyed the episodes about Narsus’ old friend, Shagad from Gilad. This anime writes great side-stories that contribute to the main premise of the story.
Also watched episodes 38 and 39 of Ushio and Tora, completing the series. As shounen shows are concerned, it’s one of the better ones. The final battle with Hakumen was exciting, and they did a good job depicting Hakumen as a dreadful being. Tora’s death at the end was sad. Those two went through everything together.
Next, I’ll be binge watching the recent Berserk series, 91 Days, Bungou Stray Dogs Season 2, and Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans Season 2.
