The Heroic Legend of Arslan – Season 1 Part 1 Collectors Edition Contents Confirmed


Following on from the UK Collectors Edition release of Seraph of the End – Season 1 Part 1, which is now available from today on both DVD and Blu-ray, Universal Pictures UK have today announced what you can expect to receive from their latest anime release; The Heroic Legend of Arslan – Season 1 Part 1.

Just like with the Collectors Edition of Seraph of the End, which we unboxed here, this Collectors Edition release of The Heroic Legend of Arslan – Season 1 Part 1 will contain 12 episodes across two Blu-ray discs in a digipack casing, a selection of art cards (12 in total), four character information cards, an 80-page visual book filled with information about the show, a poster which depicts the world of Arslan and more interestingly a shogi-styled board game with game pieces all of which will be packed a chipboard artbox.


It’s hard to believe that Universal Pictures UK could ‘out-do’ their previous Collectors Edition release but seeing the contents laid out before me prooves that something special is happening; and hopefully Universal Pictures UK will continue the trend with future projects. Ironically enough however this interesting news also came with some bad news; as due to approvals taking longer than initally expected this Collectors Edition release of The Heroic Legend of Arslan – Season 1 Part 1 is now expected to launch on the 25th July 2016 as opposed to its inital 4th July 2016 release date.

Curious to know what The Heroic Legend of Arlsan has to offer? Then why not check out the synopsis provided by Universal Pictures UK:

synopsis:Swords clash, warriors fall and the battle for the future of the Kingdom of Pars begins in the epic first twelve episodes of The Heroic Legend of Arslan Season One! Pitched into the middle of a war between the nations of Pars and Lusitania, young Prince Arslan barely escapes with his life when his father King Andragoras III is targeted by traitors in his own camp. With nothing but the help of the steadfast and loyal warrior Daryun and a ragtag group of followers, Arslan must face impossible odds to liberate his fallen nation from the amassed forces of Lusitania, led by the mysterious Silvermask!

For the time being The Heroic Legend of Arslan – Season 1 Part 1 will be released as a Collectors Edition Blu-ray and Collectors Edition DVD from the 25th July 2016 with pre-orders now being accepted on numerous websites such as Amazon UK.
