Kingdom is currently an on-going anime in it's season 2 which is finishing up very soon.


It is about the seven warring state periods. If you are a HAN Guy in general you need to watch this, if you are a CBC more the reason you need to watch this. Watch how sophisticated our shat is CENTURIES before Christ compare to "those people"

Nah! Yous got to wait like 24 Hours Brosky. I was intending to start a Kingdom thread upon the 3rd Seasons announcement/airing, if we're so lucky. I just stared Kingdom around Episode 25 of Season 2, so it's way too late.

Kingdom 2 has already ended as well, at 39 episodes.

I'll totally suggest you check out the Manga, and head to the Manga forums to chat with the punks there. I talked a little about both the Manga and the Anime on that one, and it's slightly more proper at this moment.

Also, Han? Nobody likes Han. Nobody should like Han. I mean, maybe they should, but I'm telling you they shouldn't to provoke a discussion in which you teach me more about Han.

As far as the show goes..... Chinese out of 10, would watch again. Despite a weak introduction Season, the show holds good writing and solid art/characters. It's primary weakness of using CGI-Animation for the majority of characters in Season 1 was horrible and ugly, but daaaaayum did the show get me by the end. By Season 1's finale, I didn't even care. They also managed some really good moments with the CGI eventually.

Wang Qi was my favorite form the second he was introduced, did you look at that guy? He looked awesome as hell and sounded gay as hell, the most hilarious of moments all involved him. Especially Teng, that guy's face always made me crack up. Their was no part of their characters I didn't like.

As far as Xin goes, yes. His story has little difference from the Naruto standard "I"m gonna be the greatest General(Hokage) in the world, woooooh!" But the show's progression puts his character in a leadership role, and it plays to it's strengths with that. As Xin ages and grows stronger, his character grows more inspiring, and he leads more and more secondary characters. That is how you build a leader, and I really like how they did it.

Overall, the show is awesome, people should check it out.

Also ,it has a discussion thread here already. Look into posting in that one.

I can't find the previous discussion thread, that's why I made a new one.


WHAT episode 39 is the end?

No wonder the ending song had a recap of everything. This makes me very sad I was hoping to see a few more episodes. First of all thank you for suggesting that I read the manga, but as an anime watcher I'll only stick to watching anime. By the way this isn't really a spoiler since Ive never read the manga.

Just an interesting fact to point out, I think that this manga/anime will end up how Zheng conquered China, and Xin marry Diao and they live happily ever after. You see most kids who never read history would not know in reality Qin dynasty did not united all of China in actual.


It's ironic you see during the time after Zheng(yes the ZHENG in the anime) died and they were building a tomb for him and crap... there was Liu Bang, and Xiang Yu. why don't you read a little on these two people in history I could go on all day if I'm to elaborate. Liu Bang is the founder of Han dynasty.




Basically the story of which the anime is based on "Zheng" and young protagonist "Xin" uniting all of China is false. VERY false; false to the MAX. Every story you've been told about China being united is more of a lie than the cake.
