Historical Action Manga ‘KINGDOM’ to be animated

It has been recently announced in the Weekly Young Jump that Hara Yasuhisa’s ‘KINGDOM’ will be animated and is slated to air in 2012 through NHK.

Plot Summary:

“Millions of years have passed since the times of legends, when the worlds of man and gods were still the same. In these times it was the desires of man that moved the world. It is the era of the 500 year war: The warring states peroid. Kingdom is the story of a young boy named Xin who grew into a great general and all the trials and bloodshed that lead him there. ” -Baka-Updates Manga

Genre: Action Drama Historical Seinen

The story essentially revolves around a young boy who aims to be the top general of the army and eventually becomes the future first emperor.

The anime will be directed by Kamiya Jun (Hikaru no Go) and will be produced by Pierrot (Yu Yu Hakusho, Letter Bee, Level E).

I haven’t read the manga but the story sounds interesting and I am hoping that the series would be good since the poster does set itself up to be something pretty epic.

Are you anticipating this series too?
