The hole action of this is a religious war and by the nd of this volume ( which by the way is gory if you 're the squeamish type) a good chunk of Pars has been tortured and murdered, including babies which one soldiers delightfully regales his fellows because they 're of the wrong religion.

So that threw a real pall over my enjoyment of this storyline.It opens with Daryun and Arslan meeting up with former general, Narsus and his freed slave, Elam ( Yes, Pars does use slaves which will be a key point in Pars 's falling).

Narsus wants nothing to do with the fighting, preferring to be a painter ( given the reactions a bad one) but Daryun did something manipulative and crappy to force his hand.

There is religious zealotry in full force ( and like I said seeing too much of that lately in many countries including my own).

If Daryum is to become Arslan 's blade, then Narsus is surely to become his strategist, as he can anticipate his enemies' actions and devise clever strategies that would make Yang Wenli blush ( if you do n't get that reference, then think of Shiroe from Log Horizon).

While this volume, like the ast, falls into the same shōnen habit of over-explanation in word balloons, they are laid out well, and we still get pages and pages of uninterrupted, stunning art panels.

I 'm amazed at Yoshiki Tanaka 's and Hiromu Arakawa 's ability to put so much of the orror of war into just a few small panels.

At least we are introduced to the bard and he 's a fun ( if mercenary) character.Sex?

No way.
