Trivia / The Heroic Legend of Arslan

  • Casting Gag:
  • Executive Meddling: Aside of the Spell My Name with an "S" incident mentioned below, the character designs changed between the first and second episodes. The designs in the first episode follow Yoshitaka Amano's beautiful artwork while from second episode onwards they're more indigenous to the style of Sachiko Kamimura. It's most obvious in case of Daryun who, in the first episode, has sharp and dangerous looks, slanted eyes, and hair that tends to fall into his face. In the 2nd episode and afterwards his hair is less wild, and he has milder features with rounded eyes, giving him a more classic "good guy" look.
  • Playing Against Type: Yuuki Kaji, who usually voices young males, voices the Big Bad of the 2015 series, also with a much deeper pitch than his usual.
