Kingdom Plot Recap

Yasuhisa Hara’s Kingdom is an epic tale about brave warriors from the Chinese Warring States period.

At the center of the story is the ambitious king of Qin, Ying Zheng, who aims to conquer all the warring states and unite the vast country. Our protagonists, Xin and Piao, are orphans who work as servants in Qin but harbor dreams of becoming renowned war generals.

Their lives take a dramatic turn when Piao is mysteriously taken to the palace and returns in a near-death state months later. So, fueled by grief, Xin embarks on a journey to a neighboring village, where he encounters someone who bears an uncanny resemblance to Piao.

Through his encounters, Xin uncovers the truth: Piao became a body double for King Ying Zheng, sacrificing his own life in the process. Determined to seek justice, Xin resolves to aid Ying Zheng in his quest to claim the throne from his younger brother, Cheng Jiao.

With Ying Zheng eventually crowned king, Xin sets forth on his own path as a military man, embarking on a remarkable journey to become the renowned “Greatest General in the World.”

Kingdom has garnered critical acclaim, with the manga ranking among Japan’s most popular series, boasting over 90 million copies sold as of 2022. The manga has been serialized in Weekly Young Jump since 2006, with an impressive 66 volumes published to date.

Studio Pierrot brought life to the anime adaptation with their renowned work on beloved series like Bleach and Naruto.
