    I've seen foreverworld and few other ppl that review animes / manga saying its one of those franchises that you don't know if you should wait for an anime or read manga ... 50-50 in quality in both.

    Oh I see, so the anime does follow the manga? Meaning that if I watch both seasons, I can jump right into the manga.

    7/10 Its a nice story. The main character has one of those goals that is really hard to achieve so technically the story goes on and on. Its quite enjoyable but I am not up to date anymore.

    @"Fire Fist 777", thanks for the link. Didn't know there was a thread for Kingdom. I'm such a huge fan :D

    I've seen the first season, and now I'm on episode 10 (I think) of season 2. I love the show, the characters, and most especially the storyline. I think this is an underrated series due to its animation.

    I might read the manga after I watch season 2, but we'll see. The anime left such a great impression on me that I might just stop there.

    Season 1 was really weird with the animation. It gets better but still. It's an anime you must follow because of the story line.
    I'm now at episode 22 of season 2 and I must say, it is an damn good story. If you're into War, tactics and such.

    I read the manga up to date. This manga series is good I really liked it . Thanks @Gomugomunocannon for suggesting trough your status. I didn't watch anime as I thought reading manga is quick. I suggest this manga to people who like lengthy series with good action and strategy and tactics etc..

    The best thing about this manga is it keeps getting better and better. Plus the suspense is intense and deep.
    Strategically very sound and I want to say so much more but I'll just say the past 4 chapters blew my mind. Completely.

    Yeah man.

    I was so excited to see what was is it that Ribokou figured about about Kanki.
    But still I am a bit confused as to who will be the final State to fall. I believe it will be Chu
