kingdom season 5

The first episode of Kingdom season 5 was originally set to premiere in Japan on January 6, 2024, but was met with an unexpected delay. The delay in question was put in place as a result of NHK’s coverage of the earthquake at Ishikawa Prefecture’s Noto Peninsula, which occurred on January 1. 

Kingdom season 5 episode 1 will now air on January 13 at 24:15 Japan Time, which is effectively January 14 at 12:15am JST. 

Here’s a trailer from November:

Yasuhisa Hara’s Kingdom manga is currently running in the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine, and all four seasons of the anime so far are available to stream on Crunchyroll, which sum up the series like so:

A nameless boy and a young king have grown up in a nation plagued by war. The boy, Xin, has countlessly proven himself on the battlefield, and although initially starting on bad terms, he and the young king, Zheng, have become comrades. Zheng wishes to bring all the warring states under Qin, while Xin climbs the ranks to become a Great General. Both of their ambitions will change history forever.
