Animenewsnetwork - This week's installment of The Heroic Legend of Arslan starts with its most interesting material. We're back with the royal family of Lusitania, where Guiscard is cleaning up after other leaders' messes again. High Priest Bodin has unleashed his army on all heretics—so, basically the entire population of Pars that hasn't swiftly converted. Guiscard doesn't like this, seeing it as unnecessary violence that could lead to an uprising. He doesn't think the war against Pars is actually the church's business in the first place. Bodin disagrees, insisting that this is a "holy war." He marches his army on Ectabana in spite (or perhaps because) of Guiscard's disagreement. This lands the younger brother in hot water for standing up to a religious leader and failing.
