It is typical for most animes with stories like ' a high school guy and his adventures' or 'a fantasy world with un-natural humans and their abilities' or maybe'world at it's end'. This has lately been the main theme this summer BUT some ice-breaker this anime was. I must say I will miss it till it's next season. It's a story about how a prince (will) become the King. It takes you back to the Medieval age, as I think it is, the Persian region and their culture; how they used to live back then. The wars Arslan (the prince) takes part in, his ideology, the fall of his kingdom and the capturing of his father and finally Arslan reforging a new army to take back his homeland has sure been a new experience for me.
Besides the fact that this anime doesn't have a solid, convincing or interesting (new) main story but when it comes to comedy, you can compare it with most all the anime rated high in the comedy section. Like Beelzebub there are tons of unpredictable gags.
It has that basic 'a guy somehow jumps in a pseudo game-fantasy world' theme but a bit different.
