Arslan Senki or The Heroic Legend of Arslan is a Japanese fantasy novel series written by Tanaka Yoshiki. Tanaka began writing the series in 1986, and the series is still ongoing as of 2008. There are currently 14 novels and one side story published. It was adapted into a manga by Nakamura Chisato in 1991, but the manga caught up to the novels in 1998 and received an original ending. In 2013, it received yet another manga adaptation, this time illustrated by Arakawa Hiromu. The new manga is serialized in the Bessatsu Shounen Magazine. Arslan Senki was also once developed into a short film and a 6 part unfinished OVA (only 4 parts were released).
