Honey’s Highlights

So here we have an anime about a boy called Mahmut, who is the youngest general in the history of Turkiye... This will be a serious military adventure anime.

This. Looks. EPIC. I'm getting some serious Arslan Senki and Akatsuki no Yona vibes from this, I'm so pumped.

Sounds like it could be similar to Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin, too, if there's lots of tactics talk. The setting seems similar to Kingdom, too.

Mahmut is so cute, trying to protect everyone! I can't wait to see what adventures he gets up to... I just hope this won't have any tragedy.

Synopsis

This story is set in a world that does not exist and has not existed until now. Here, the generals referred to as “the government” rule over the prairies and deserts that make up the country Turkiye. The country of Turkiye is a stratocracy; a country ruled by the military.

12 years ago, the neighboring Empire of Baltrhein went to war with Turkiye. There, young Mahmut lost his mother. Dreaming of a once again peaceful country, he becomes the youngest general in the history of Turkiye.

However, jealous of the vast fortunes that Turkiye has amassed, the Empire once again begins to invade in hopes of retuning the wealth to Baltrhein.

With his partner, Iskandar Tugril, an eagle, can Mahmut, amid a swirling vortex of conspiracies and schemes threatening to tear him apart, cross-nationally lead his country back to a state of peace?

--- At the threshold of ideal and reality, what actions will he take?

Three Episode Impression

In the ocean of Isekai anime, it’s a refreshing change of pace when we come across Shoukoku no Altair, an anime about Mahmut who has studied and worked hard to become the youngest Pasha in Turkiye. From the first episode, you are really just dropped into the plot, you are informed of the fact that Mahmut is the youngest Pasha, whatever that means, and you don’t really know until episode 3 where you learn more that a Pasha is charged with the task of thinking about the people more so than the individual. Unless you missed something, it seems that you’re just supposed to know that Pasha are supposed to be respected, although Mahmut can hardly command respect. Shoukoku no Altair is comparable to popular anime like Arslan Senki or even Magi as it plays out in a fictitious yet ancient land where war and adventure await everyone. From the start, you are thrown into Shoukoku no Altair which is on the verge of war, so there’s no slow introduction at the start. We can only wonder what will occur in Shoukoku no Altair and if it’ll ever slow down all of a sudden but for now, it’s piqued our interest.
