Kingdom - 37


One-word review: Wang-Qi.

That is all.

  1. He makes that series IMHO. I love Kingdom but wish they would spend a little less time talking about aura's of leaders and a little less strategy and move the story along. Very little seems to be happening each episode.

  2. Haha...I have more than one word to say...and hope this is okay...

    I love this last arc on Wang-qi -- he is my favourite character -- and my heart kept pumping fast wishing Wang-qi would stay alive despite all the build-up directed to his fall.

    This is a nice penultimate, and I so look forward to the finale of the series tomorrow. I guess we won't see Xin becoming a general, but I have enjoyed Kingdom a lot, especially its story and characters -- I hope that more people can see the gem of this series like some of us do.

  3. Its unfortunate that this series had to dabble in that weird CGI in the start, because the story is just... Wow. I have never seen an anime series about war that is so darn good.

    I wish they'd continue on with this story, but unfortunately It just wasn't popular enough. With the potential end of Wang Qi comes the end of the series too eh?

    1. Hold that thought. A second season is coming! Call me super darn happy!

    2. That's right...now I remember reading about it on this blog... If there's a second season, I hope that Wang Qi would survive the battle -- I love this character, and he will be a very good mentor to Xin.

  4. I just finished watching episode 38...not sure if Enzo will do a wrap-up of Kingdom's season 1 (very much hope so), so I am just going to leave a few words here without spoiling.

    Despite the animation, I very much enjoyed season 1 of Kingdom and will sure look forward to season 2 to come (really love stories based on history and wish that we could have more out there...). Wang Qi is still my favourite character (can't say enough how much I love Riki-chan's performance), but I am starting to get interested in Li Mu.

  5. I just finished 38 as well and loved this 1st season. Would be nice if they time warp a few years so Xin and the others will be more mature and developed body wise (Xin kinda small and very young for such a fearsome warrior in the making). Can't wait for June. Gonna miss this bright spot on a slow dubbed anime tuesday (Rock Lee is unwatchable, and Amnesia is disapointing on many levels)
