The original Kingdom story is one of the past where nobles and monarchs fight to protect and achieve, where a young man is chased out for the sake of the Kingdom and where he manages to find a solution to his problems in the face of another young boy who has immense fighting abilities and… looks quite like the first one.

Also, as a bow to the fans, the first Kingdom anime season is being replayed on NHK_General starting April 8 2013 at 01:10 (local time).

The second season of this series will begin in June 2013.
