TV anime series “The Heroic Legend of Arslan” premiered last April, and currently airs every Sunday at 5:00 PM on 28 MBS and TBS stations across Japan. Based on “Fullmetal Alchemist” creator Hiromu Arakawa’s manga adaptation of Yoshiki Tanaka’s light novel series, the anime series has proven to be a huge hit.

Numerous factors have contributed to the series’ popularity, including cross-promotional campaigns with Attack on Titan and department store Shibuya109 Men’s and new characters created for the anime series by Arakawa. The series will now be able to reach an even wider audience thanks to a limited-time free online streaming promotion.

During the promotional period, all Japanese viewers will be able to watch the series to date through MBS-operated streaming video site Gyao!, temporarily expanding from the currently-available episodes 1 and 2. A total of 8 episodes will be available for free streaming.

The series will be available for streaming within Japan from Sunday, May 24th at 5:30 PM through Sunday, May 31st at 5:00 PM.
