Synopsis: Tughril Mahmut is a young pasha serving on the Divan of the Türkiye Stratocracy. The clouds of war are gathering over his country due to the threat of an aggressive Empire. With the Divan split between warmongers and the pacifists, Mahmut begins his quest to keep the peace at any cost. As he finds himself deeper and deeper in the politics of the ancient world, new enemies and allies surface. Who will prevail? What will Mahmut do if war proves to be inevitable?

Hmm... My initial thoughts:

Shoukoku no Altair - YES! It won't be as pretty as the manga, but YES! (Seriously. One of the most beautifully drawn manga I've ever seen.)

just saw ep.1! feels like Arslan Senki in many ways, art inspired from novels?;)

Just finished first season last night... rather well done, though it seems a little rushed as our MC makes his way around to the other areas and learns his lessons in statecraft. I wonder if the source material, manga?, was the same or was it more expanded? It seems like it should have been more filled out... but instead they keep the pace  moving by just pushing the scene to the next one... other than this, I like it... makes we remember the Legend of the Galactic Hereos in the sense of the characters storyline... and it does make sense as he is young and naive in the sense of statecraft/realpolitic etc... which includes all the idiots/psychos/pedophiles/crooks and other deviants employed by the 'leaders' of the state or that actually run it... thus our 'history' as we know it. It covers most of this rather well, simple and straightforward.... well paced... nothing special, but it does covers the realistic basics of the 'evil empire' vs the less evil or more peaceful states that, if they don't work together, suffer alone, as the empire will pick them off, one after the next, usually starting with the weakest ones first.... classic predator/prey relationship in nature... animal kingdom that includes humans on this planet... well shown in Legend... this is on a smaller scale so far, set in the past just far enough that tech isn't much of an issue... until the last ep or two when it shows up as a new thing on the scene.... which definitely did change things, but the core issues remained... as the Brits called it, "The Great Game"... which we inherited and continue to practice today. It's all in there is simplified form... with the impetus of our MC being successful instead of tragic as the MC in Legends was... you could see it throughout... sort of opposites in that regard.... this kid is learning early in life, and a part of the court in power, not an outsider like the MC in Legends who was thrust on the scene as if by accident... destiny seems to be the at work in both, with the issue of empire at the core as well. Pretty good so far, if 'rushed'... makes me wonder if the manga was like this, or lack of budget for more than 2 cours?

The anime isn't rushed per se as it is bad at capturing the source's sense of flow.  Part of that is they're just not as good at art as the Mangaka.  Lots of these exposition scenes are the framing to beautiful full page spreads in the manga.

 

That said, from here stuff the pace is about to quicken, judging from the new OP.  They're going to get really close to the manga scanlations by season's end.

yep especially now that the great war began needs a better studio, be J.C.Staff (KujiSuna) or at least Wit (MahoYome)... ep.17 wrong subs like Fiore instead of Florence, previously D'0ria as tanuki isn't sly dog (monkey in Sakura quest!)<_<

Isn't that a better translation for American audiences? if not western audiences or english speaking audiences? I thought the place names were changed on purpose... to allude to the eastern Med place names, to allude to their history etc without being tied down to specifics.... which makes it easier to let any differences slide, which I thought was smart. Wasn't this done on purpose in the manga as well?

 

I just finished ep 18.... so much better to watch a few eps in a row than one a week... I really think the anime industry (like music industry, film etc) has to change to adapt to the change in this market.... especially given these are already late night or weekend morning, or not considered for theatrical release, so why keep this weekly half hour format? I know it's hard to change one's way of doing things you've done all your life, but the market has already changed... better to lead than follow, but at minimum, keep up with the times are be left behind.

 

THat said, I still like this project. As many have said about other animes, since I didn't see the original source material, it's new to me and they are presenting the empire vs free republics dynamic rather well.... isn't much different today.... all the fake news, the fake "Russia did it" BS to hide the corruption, idiocy, failure etc.... the push of our American empire (and 'friends') into WW3 against the 'Asian contagion'... of Russia, China. It has been said that all Trumpy can do is prevent it going nuclear.

 

I just finished the entire (well, the movie versions) of Ghost in the SHell again... I like that one... and there were changes in each version, but they still had another, if not 2 more, WW's... a third and fourth that didn't go nuclear.... the push for transhumanism during and after the wars.... all of it is rather topical these days as we match into the next war... empires always end this way. THis anime is presenting this basic storyline rather well.... reminds me of 'Galactic Heroes' in that regard....though placing events in the past instead of the future makes it more realistic. Guess now I'll have to wait till the end of the season...  I looked at the wikipedia entry... is ep 18 about chapter 48 in the  manga? And the manga is ongoing.... so this won't end this season I take it?

i'm aware but i only mean what's renamed yet again by subs, still its countries are more believable than in Kino no tabi... so #19 as that nation Chielo (fitting word?) joins the anti·imperial alliance, we'll see if this series has a final feliz :P
