The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 7 – Moeblob and the boob queen

On the last post I did a commenter asked what it was I even liked about Arslan. Apparently I have been more vocal about the parts I dislike than the parts I like. I know, right? Me, negative? Never! I hadn’t thought I was being too negative, but nevertheless to show that one guy I […]

The Heroic Legend Legend of Arslan episode 6 – Santa loses his head

This isn’t how I expected to see this character again. I suppose at least he still looks cool. It’s hard to look cool when you have no arms from which to pose with, as we learned from Jojo’s. But Arabian Santa Claus manages it. I wonder if the King will still look cool with his […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 5 – The Fellowship of the Ring

I’m not the only one getting a real Fellowship of the Ring vibe from these episodes, right? Arslan is Frodo, Daryun is Strider, Narsus is Arwen obviously. Narsus’ little friend is another hobbit. Yeah it totally works. The only issue is the other hobbit isn’t nearly homosexual enough with Arslan to be representative of Sam and […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 4 – Mount your friends

Narsus throwing a bunch of thugs down a trapdoor then just leaving them there was my favourite part of this episode. It’s like he dropped them down there then realised he didn’t know what to do next but had to look cool in front of his old friend. So instead he started treating them as […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 3 – Arabian Santa Claus kicks arse

Although I might think the animation in Arslan sucks, I do like its tendency to depict heroic characters slashing their weapon and have a collection of grunts fly away from them like his just let out a giant fart and they’re all swooning from it’s whiff. It’s like you’re looking at someone play a Dynasty […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 2 – Oh no he betrayed me…who are you again?

There’s a thing in sports where sometimes the greatest players don’t make good managers because they are incapable of understanding why less talented people can’t do what they themselves find easy and natural. They can’t explain to the lesser talents why they can’t do something the manager thinks should be simple. Or how a teacher incredibly smart […]

The Heroic Legend of Arslan episode 1 – Pretty prince boy

This was almost as gay as the opening episode of No.6. Not quite as gay, and I sure hope it doesn’t devolve into magical bee queens like that show did. But then again both stories started with pampered rich kid from well off society meeting and being taken semi-hostage by kid from different culture until […]
