Arslan

Otaku Evolution Episode 106 - Heroic Legend of Arslan (Eps 5-6) (OVA)

Body: 

Hey, remember when Arslan was a thing?

I mean, okay it's still kind of a thing, the TV series hasn't completely concluded, right? Well, yeah, for now it has, but it's sure to come back, right? One thing's for sure, this OVA that adapted Yoshiki Tanaka's historical fantasy novels before Hiromu Arakawa's manga or the show based on it certainly stopped, and pretty much ended with no real conclusion. But here I review the final two episodes, regardless, making sure to stop now and then to drop referential jokes and still really like Gieve, because Gieve is the best Arslan character and we all know it.

Gieve, man. He's fucking fantastic. I guess the rest are kind of neat, too, though.

Otaku Evolution Episode 70 - Heroic Legend of Arslan (OVA) (Episodes 3-4)

Body: 

Ugh. Do you know how many times I had to tweak "Adagio for Strings" so it wouldn't be flagged by YouTube? Three times. I guess that specific performance was licensed. Don't forget folks, that despite classical music being largely public domain, the people who actually perform it tend to have contracts and copyrights and such. I only needed a few seconds, though, FFS.

 

Anyway, enjoy my second look into the OVAs for The Heroic Legend of Arslan, based on the books by the dude who made Legend of the Galactic Heroes! Surely it is just as good, though, right? Riiiight? (No.)
