Haruhisa’s retelling of China’s warring state times is now in full swing, the first season came off as vastly impressive and the second was expected to do nothing but hit new heights.

The biggest talking point of the 2nd season would without a doubt be the art. If you were worried coming off from the mostly CG first season then you can put your worries to rest. It would seem that at the start of the first season, producers had very little expectations for Kingdom and its budget was kept low, but with the advent of soaring Manga sales and anime popularity, they decided to spare read more

The kingdom series is so precious and sentimental to me now that my only regret was not finding out about it sooner. The emotions welling up inside of me are so powerful that I'm going out of my way to write this review. Now rather than try to entice newcomers to tryout this series based solely on its merits, I will try and put forth my true and pure emotions in the raw intensity that the show also demonstrates.

Story: The world is alive and decidedly mortal as each battle has an outcome on the lives of the soldiers and their people. China is breathing read more

Kingdom Second Season Review: Completed Review.

Back story on this review is, I had the top review for this series, but it got removed, due to it not being finished, thus I bring you the finished version. *Explosion*

As the title of my review shows, this is in fact the second season of the Kingdom Anime, from here I will tell everyone to watch the first season before watching or reading this review, mini-review within a review, Kingdom season one is good, but the production costs to make it were quite low, but they increased in the second season quite a lot, so it's definitely worth a read more

I am new to writing reviews so if u have any suggestions plz comment on my profile.

This can be described by two words, epic and awesome. I will give it two types of reviews a short and another long one.

Short  review
This is a MUST WATCH. It has intense suspense, grand wars, awesome strategies, politics, cool characters, solid storyline. Easy 10/10.

Long review
Imo, kingdom is probably one of the most underrated anime. The main reason for its unpopularity is that the first few episodes of the first season were over animated (which led to half of the people immediately dropping the series). But hey, no pain no read more

Anime: Katanagatari
Both series take place in the Edo period, Both have Historical events within the plot.
The two main characters fight to become the strongest and also to protect the ones they care about
Both Protagonists has a female partner who helps assist and teach them how to become stronger
The stories contain some amazing fighting scenes and displays some awesome comedy segments.

Both deal with main characters leading armys. Utawarerumono's main character is a leader who gains power over time and becomes a king. As for Kingdom Xin grows as a character climbing the ranks to becoming a general.

Anime: Sengoku Basara
These anime are so similar
it starts off a little different but starting from the second half of the first season, Kingdom is so much like sengoky basara.

you got armies fighting to conquer the land in a feudal age. Only a hand full of fighters in every army matters and everyone else is a worthless peon. The fights and characters are way over the top with the peons constantly being blown away by the fighters that matter.

Id say it kingdom is a little better than sengoku basara, since theres a little more strategy in their wars.

Anime: Juuni Kokuki
Both are similar but different at the same time, The Twelve Kingdoms contains Fantasy like creatures, where as Kingdom contains fantasy like strong humans. Twelve Kingdoms focuses mainly on the rulers and people than the actual conflicts, where as Kingdom does quite the opposite, but the genre mixes in and is quite enjoyable for both parties to watch, it'll make you feel refreshed after watching the entire series.
