Studio Pierrot produced the first two seasons in Summer 2012 and Summer 2013, each airing in three cours.

Are these manga and anime really that interesting that they get seasons like hotcakes? I ask without sarcasm, I just often hear praise for this work.

Koku You Campaign Arc is such a good arc. It's a perfect set-up for the next arcs and gives us some insight on Kan Ki's character. This arc will show off how much of a menance this dude is.

Yes, there were many 3D CG in the first season as I saw screenshots and videos from it.

you do get used to it and they nail the characters, story and important moments very well but those 3D models are quite jarring
"In the past few months since we met, I've shared many memories with Nagato. Though I've also shared memories with Haruhi, Asahina-san and Koizumi, I found that I've experienced more events with Nagato in particular. In fact, every situation seems to involve her. I might as well mention this, she's probably the only person to cause the bell within me to shake the most vigorously..." ~ Kyon, TMOSH

Still why they did it in 3D CGI. I doubt Pierrot have little money.

Only Season 1 is made with 80% CGI... the amount of CGI drops by a lot in Season 2, and is almost completely removed from Season 3 onwards

If you manage to get through the bad CGI in season 1, this show is actually amazing

the event,arcs and characters of the first season which is the first 170 chapters of the manga
is master piece , the only downside is the cgi and censorship of blood .
so the best advice is to read those first arcs in the manga hten move to the anime
the manga art is suprior even to the new seasons .

It might be underrated in Western mainstream anime circles, but the manga is super popular in Japan having sold around 90 million copies which makes it one of the best selling manga of all time

If you like war drama stories merged with battle shonen elements (so like the original RTK novel lol), Chinese history or history in general yeah Kingdom is awesome. Also yeah I would just recommend reading the manga for the first some 173 chapters. The anime does look better from the snippets I have seen in S2 and especially S3. S1 though just looks awful main reason I decided to pick up the manga first because the art is quite beautiful at least for me.
