News: Kingdom – Second Season Announced


According to public broadcaster NHK, it has announced that second season of action anime series Kingdom will premiere this coming June.

It will run every Sunday at 11:45pm on BS Premium channel in Japan.

 In the Warring States Period of ancient China (475-221 BCE), Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of one day proving themselves on the battlefield. One day, however, Hyou is taken to the palace by a minister. Winding up on the losing side of a power-struggle, Hyou manages to return to the village, barely alive. Shin then meets a boy who closely resembles Hyou, Ei Sei. For now he is the king of Qin; later he will become the emperor Shi Huangdi.
