Description
As an unnaturally heavy mist descends on the battlefield, King Andragoras and his most valued officers confer among the bodies of dead and dying soldiers. When Daryoon, a young but highly skilled officer, voices his reluctance to send men into battle under these conditions, the king, unstable and enraged, banishes him.

Now, Daryoon's new mission is to insure the safety of the King's only son, the charismatic Prince Arislan. Daryoon and Prince Arislan set off on a quest of their own, but they can't succeed alone. They must convince both Lord Narsus and his companion, the archer Elam, to join them in their quest to somehow help the soldiers win the war.

Now a group of only six they must somehow overcome an enemy of 300,000 soldiers! These unlikely soldiers have fate on their side, so anything can happen!

Unknown Compatibility

Fist, Hiromu Arakawa draw comical characters, with head that resembling rounded box for nearly all of his characters That style have great compatibility for fantasy series or slice of life. Although still count as fantasy, this Arsland's Legend is quite heavy on historical side. I don't know if it will work well, because among historical series I liked, comical drawings cannot be found. (And who the hell put FMA in historical genre?)

Second, setting detail is quite jumbled. Lusitania is in modern day Portugal, at the Roman republic and imperial era. Ecbatana, in the other hand, is in modern day Iran, about 4th century BCE. They're separated way too far! The armor in this manga resemble late antiquity Persian (far after Median era) and maybe Khwarazmian, but the weaponry include longswords (by the look of its hilt) which mainly used by Christendom in medieval period. Many manga works with this distasteful mix of setting, but the greatest don't.

Third, the characterization follow RPG-like role division, which is non-existant in Kingdom wide organization. Of course there would be general, high physician, master-archer, master assassin, or other various job title under heaven, but I bet they're not significant individually, must be attached to their retainer or master to hold considerable power, and therefore, won't be having that much time adventuring the world like the manga suggest.

These three things doesn't indicate awesomeness for future chapters. This might be an attempt to proove that shounen-esque approach can result in awesomeness. But I doubt it.
