Japanese TV broadcaster NHK has announced the premiere of Kingdom anime’s sequel season. After the first series will end in February with episode 38, the second one will begin in June. The show will be shown on BS Premium Channel in Japan on Saturdays at 23:45 local time.
Yasuhisa Hara’s original manga runs in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine since 2006 and has already had 28 volumes published (with the 29th coming to stores in February).
The story is set in China, during the local Warring States Period. The main characters are the young emperor and a common boy who looks almost exactly like him. Don’t think of Prince and the Pauper, but rather the typical imperial doubles as time and space change the position of the young commoner and let him have a taste of the great life i the palace… or at least the Emperor’s responsibilities.
