If you are unfamiliar with Kingdom, Kingdom is a historical manga based on Warring states of the era written by Yasuhisa Hara and published in Weekly Young Jump since 2006. An anime adaptation premiered in 2012 and sequel in 2013. Both seasons were streamed by Funimation. The manga inspired a live-action film adaptation by Shinsuke Satō that opened in Japan last April.
Hara’s historical manga centers around the slave boy Xin and his dream of becoming a great general for the state of Qin. Xin helps Ying Zheng, the young Qin king who shares his desire to unify China, rise to power within the state. Xin does all he can to become a superior commander of an army capable of defeating the Seven Warring States.
