Animenewsnetwork - Just like that, The Heroic Legend of Arslan is over. At least, it's over for now. There's still a lot of plot left to cover: Arslan needs to take Ecbatana, and take Hermes down in the process. At least the show wisely realized it couldn't cover all that ground here, and instead focuses on character relationships while building up a bridge to another season. The Heroic Legend of Arslan seems to be somewhat popular in Japan, and there's still plenty more story to cover in the source material, so it's likely to get a continuation. For now, this leaves us with a strange, open-ended, but not unsatisfying conclusion.
