TOHO introduced on Monday that it’s producing the primary stage play adaptation of Yasuhisa Hara‘s Kingdom manga. The manufacturing will run at Tokyo’s Imperial Theatre in February 2023.

Hara’s historic manga started with the slave boy Xin and his dream of changing into an awesome basic for the state of Qin. Xin helps Ying Zheng, the younger Qin king who shares his need to unify China, rise to energy inside the state. Xin does all he can to develop into a superior commander of a military able to defeating the Seven Warring States.

The record-setting manga launched in Shueisha‘s Weekly Young Jump journal in 2006. Shueisha revealed the sixty fourth compiled e book quantity on February 18. Hara stated he’s contemplating writing as much as 100 volumes. A tv anime adaptation premiered in 2012, and a second season premiered in 2013. Funimation streamed the sequence in North America and launched each anime on DVD in 2016.

The third anime sequence based mostly on Yasuhisa Hara‘s Kingdom manga premiered on NHK General in April 2020. The anime’s manufacturing committee introduced later that month that it was delaying the published of the sequence’ episode 5 and later episodes as a result of Japanese authorities’s first state of emergency in opposition to the brand new coronavirus illness (COVID-19). The third sequence resumed airing on NHK General in April 2021. The anime restarted its airing from the primary episode.

The anime’s fourth season will premiere on NHK General on April 9 at 24:00 (successfully April 10 at 12:00 a.m.).

The first live-action movie adaptation of the manga opened in Japan in April 2019. Funimation screened the movie at Anime Expo in July 2019, and commenced screening the movie in theaters within the United States and Canada in August 2019. The sequel movie, Kingdom II: Harukanaru Daichi e (To Distant Lands), will open in Japan this summer season.
