Kingdom 2 Episode 19 – Our Arrows Will Block Out The Sun!

Unfortunately, hiding in the shade isn’t working out that well.

So much awesomeness in this episode. I really wish I’d resisted reading ahead in the manga, if only to relive the epicness and anticipation I felt while reading and waiting for every new release to see what happens next. I kind of feel jealous of the (very few) anime-only viewers of this show. :(

Kingdom 2 Episode 18 – THE FINAL BATTLE BEGINS!

And we’re not even technically halfway through this season!

Yes, the real battle hasĀ finally started. Whew, now I can stop complaining about that, and focus on how pumped I am for what’s coming up next! It’s actually a bit sad that I’m looking forward to this more than the rest of the fall season. :|

Kingdom 2 Episode 17 – Calm Before the Storm

Congratulations on the promotion Xin! Try not to screw up too bad!

Kingdom 2 Episode 14 – Oh Hey, A New ED!


Gonna miss the last one, but this new one’s great too, so no complaints here. :D

Anyways, I’m switching up my Kingdom post format from here on out, simply because writing about something I’ve already seen really doesn’t get across all the excitement and sheer epicness that I feel when I first read a chapter. So I’ve been taking notes on the manga as I’ve been reading them and writing down my reactions. Hopefully, this’ll make my analysis of events a bit less biased.
