Kingdom Anime Gets Third Season

Kingdom anime season 3Kingdom, the anime adaptation of Yasuhisa Hara’s long-running manga, is getting a third season.

That’s the word from Hara himself, who drew a new image to celebrate the occasion.

Hara also confirmed the season will cover the manga’s Alliance Arc.

Hara himself will supervise the new anime. It will not be produced by studio Pierrot, which animated the first two seasons. However, the series’ main voice actors will reprise their roles.

Aside from anime, the manga was also adapted into a live-action film this year.

Kingdom seasons 1 and 2 ran between 2012 and 2014. Here’s how Funimation describes the series:

Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!
