Kingdom Anime Season 1 Gets DVD Release With English Dub

posted on by Karen Ressler
All 38 episodes of first anime series slated for January

FUNimation Entertainment began listing a DVD release of all 38 episodes of the first Kingdom anime series with an English dub. The set is slated for January 26, 2016.

Funimation confirmed with ANN that, while the release will have an English dub, the default setting on the DVDs will be Japanese with English subtitles. Funimation currently has no plans for a Blu-ray release.

The first anime series based on Yasuhisa Hara's historical manga premiered in June 2012 and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

The second anime series ran for 39 episodes from 2013-2014.

Funimation describes the story:

When low-born servant boys, Piao and Xin, set out to become the world's greatest war generals they quickly find themselves caught up in a violent struggle between two noblemen plotting to overthrow the King.

After Piao is killed protecting the rightful ruler of the kingdom of Qin, Xin sets out on a campaign for revenge that leads him straight into the fire of war. Now, with a target on his back and an army of enemies standing in his way, it will be up to a boy with no name and a young king without a throne to return order to their war-torn country in this historical action-drama based on the Tezuka Award-winning manga.
