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.
You watch kingdom with a furled brow , The at the edge action is enough but the empathy you gain towards the characters makes you want to route for them, this is a great anime full of chivalry even though the the animation isnt up to par its still a great anime, it moved me I hope it does the same for others .
I came to Kingdom as a 'backup anime' because i usually only watch fairy tail, one piece, and old school ones (cowboy bebop, prince of tennis, deathnote, and fullmetal alchemist)
i got tired of waiting for new episodes of fairytail and one piece so i randomly scrolled and picked this one.
likability of characters 8/10 (no spoilers at all):
the characters capture your attention, there is enough characters in this anime to be like "woah, this guy is cool but.... so is this one idk who i like more!!!!!!!"
for example deathnote you only really have 2 people you can like (light and L)
Story line 8-10 (no spoilers at all)
Great and amazing story line. i also love the idea behind the anime and how it shows the 'unseen' part of war which is the the strategizing and how the generals prepare a plan for war.
some people may like it, some may not. Im part of the people who isnt a fan of the art they did for this animation. The 3d effects they gave the anime just doesnt fit, and it feels as if the animators tried to hard to make "the next big thing" in anime art.
Really good anime. Give it a try youll end up liking it, trust me. Once you get used to the art youll be instantly hooked. It makes me sad now that i have to wait week by week for another anime :(.
Really good anime, definitely worth the watch but people do have preference to what they like but if your into the whole ancient, action, war theme this is a must watch; also has some cheeky humour here and there
Although what is slightly flawed is the animation; which is a mix of 2d and 3d. It does get better after a few episodes but you can't help but notice bits and bobs(almost put me off the series at the beginning) but if you do stick it through WAYHEYYYY good times ahead =)
Im a huge fan of rts games and this anime makes me jump out of my seat
i hope this anime goes on for a while cause its fresh and new the story was pretty amazing too but the first 3 or 4 eps were in 3d which is okay but the fight scenes got annoying sometimes but it seems they fixed that to regular animation though i must admit there are some slow 3d animation moments which makes it tiny bit annoying
One of the best
I really enjoy kingdom it is one of the best highlights of my week. I enjoy the strategy of the battles and it has some of the best character development I've ever seen, and when Naruto ends Kingdom will be the only thing that will be able to console me.
