Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Synopsis
The battle for Arslan continues! Arslan’s troops, which had originally intended to go to the Capital of the Ecbatana Kingdom, had to return to Peshawar because of an attack from the enemy.
It turned out that the one who was eyeing not only Lusitania, appeared again troops from an opposing country called Turan. Can Arslan immediately clean up the chaos in Peshawar and continue the journey to Ecbatana?
Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Storyline
The story itself is still as cool as the first season. In this season, the position of the Lusitanian kingdom itself begins to become clear, that this kingdom is just a ride from Hilmes to reclaim the throne of the kingdom of Pars.
This can be seen from the increasingly difficult position of the Lusitanian kingdom in maintaining its position in the capital of the Pars kingdom, Ecbatana. On the other hand, Hilmes began to seek support and confirmation in the form of the sword of the founder of the Pars kingdom as a symbol that he was the rightful heir of the Pars kingdom.
In my opinion, this kind of storyline is quite exciting, because we are made curious about who will be the ruler of the Pars kingdom. Will the powerful King Andragoras III lead again? Or did Hilmes succeed in seizing what was rightfully his, or did Prince Arslan, with his idealism and kindness, succeeded in becoming the new King of Pars? I don’t know, because in this season this conclusion doesn’t appear.
However, this gives us 2 reactions. The first reaction may be a little disappointed that this story is too short and doesn’t give us the answers we want. But there is also a second reaction where we hope to be anxious that the third season of this anime will be released soon.
Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Character
The character development in this anime is also cool. In this anime, it seems that Prince Arslan has become wiser. Even so, his kindness was still visible even when he had to help someone who could be said to be his enemy (Remember Jaswant’s case? Well, it’s like that).
Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Art
In my opinion, graphic design in this anime is still cool even though again, they do the impossible with horses (what’s wrong with horses in this anime). They’re back animating a horse like one of the merchant leaders standing on the roof .. (I’m serious ..) I don’t know what they were thinking.
Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Ost
This anime’s opening song is much better than the previous season, to be honest, I like this anime’s opening song. The ending song is cool too, but compared to the opening I prefer the opening song.
Arslan Senki : Fuujin Ranbu Overall
Storyline: 8.5 / 10
Characters: 8.5 / 10
Art: 7.5 / 10
Arslan Senki (TV): Fuujin Ranbu: 8.5 / 10
Even though it is short, for me season 2 is quite interesting. We understand that with an 8 episode anime there is no end. Some of you might be disappointed because the number of episodes is small.
For me, the choice is yours guys, want to watch now or wait for the third season to come out.
