Kingdom Season 5 has unveiled its first key visual and is set to premiere in January 2024

The upcoming fifth season of the Kingdom anime adaptation has revealed its first key visual, showcasing the Hi Shin Unit. The series is set to air in Japan starting from January.


Kingdom is based on Yasuhisa Hara's manga, set in the Warring States period, and published by Shueisha since 2006, with 69 tankoubon volumes as of July 2023. The anime's first season premiered in 2012, followed by the fourth season in 2022.

Crunchyroll describes the premise as:

Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!

The staff for Season 5 remains consistent with seasons 3 and 4, including Kenichi Imaizumi as director, Noboru Takagi as series composer, Hisashi Abe as character designer, Miyuki Abe as color designer, and Hiroyuki Sawano and KOHTA YAMAMOTO as music composers. The animation production credits go to Pierrot and its subsidiary St.Signpost once again.

The anime's cast features Masakazu Morita as Shin, Jun Fukuyama as Ei Sei, Rie Kugimiya as Karyo Ten, Youko Hikasa as Kyou Kai, Susumi Akagi as En, and Kousuke Toriumi as Bihei.

The Kingdom manga is serialized in Weekly Young Jump and published under the Young Jump Comics label. Additionally, a third live-action film is set to premiere in Japan on July 28.
