New Kingdom Manga to Run in Shounen Jump

kingdom animeA one-shot manga by Yasuhira Hara will be published in the 24th Shounen Jump issue coming out on May 13, 2013. The original manga has been printed since 2006 by the same publisher (Shueisha), but in its Young Jump Magazine. There is no plot released yet for the one-shot side-story of “Kingdom”.


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.

  1. To be honest, I don’t think this needs a gaiden, but why not? It’s a one-shot and I guess it could be fun :)
