Xin does all he can to become a superior commander of an army capable of defeating the Seven Warring States.”
Kingdom season three is based on the manga’s Coalition Invasion arc and is set for an April 2020 premiere. The new season is directed by Kenichi Imaizumi (Reborn!, After-School Dice Club), who replaced season 2 director Akira Iwanaga. Season 1 was directed by Jun Kamiya.
Kingdom is written by Yasuhisa Hara and was launched in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 2006. Studio Pierrot adapted the manga into an anime series and aired the first season in 2012, with the second airing a year after.
