Arslan Senki (Hiromu Arakawa)
It has been like two years since the new reboot of this series, while at this time it haven't surpassed the first OVA yet, i guess we will see proper continuation of this supposed to be work of LOGH author through FMA creator(shoujo manga doesn't count i guess). At this time the story of the manga is not even halfway of what the previous OVA which i think it will take around 1-2 years with the current rate and last time the OVA ended where Arslan journeyed again after his father restored his power. In terms of artwork, frankly speaking the previous one still looks superior but i guess it is rather hard to defeat Yoshitaka Amano's work. The difference of the new serialization so far is that the manga add new a Lusitanian slave turned knight which supposed to be rival of Arslan. Arslan Senki is about a journey of a Young Prince to become a Great King eventually. In middle eastern language Arslan means Lion(which even used by mongols too) and this series supposed to show how a lion cub grow into a great Lion. At the moment it is too early to say anything about the series but do yourself a favor and go watch the OVA, it is one of those treasures left in 90s.
