There’s a formula to Kingdom’s trailers that seems to work, which mixes intense battle scenes with harsh glares. These faces of generals and heroes are almost caricatures at times, but it works. I’ve never seen the show, but I feel as if I know the sides.
Part two of season four and the Ai Country Rebellion Arc has just kicked off.
Crunchyroll has the franchise where it’s dominated by 5-star reviews, though not a significant volume of them.
The opening theme is geki by zonji while the ending tune is Believe by Misaki.
Dating back, in anime form anyway, to 2012, Kingdom has been solid with its progress. As you’ll sense from the trailer, this is a story in the Chinese epic genre and tells of slave boy Xin who dreams of becoming a general for the state of Qin.
The manga dates back to 2006, running in Weekly Young Jump and has a Guinness Record for having the most writers. Okay, you might be wondering how many writers does the manga have? It’s 1,000, thanks to a campaign that recruited celebs and fans.
Crunchyroll describe it;
Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the Kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!
