While those who watched Kingdom definitely got into it, the series never made quite the dent that was hoped for, especially when FUNimation simulcast the first season of it which ran for 38 episodes. Avex Marketing did it as you’d expect in Japan during that run in that they released it across 19 DVD volumes, priced at 5040yen each, which made it a heck of a series to collect. Now they’re bringing out a priced down version of it that’s a bit more affordable as it’s coming out in three box sets with a few more episodes per set. No information is available at the moment about the types of boxes, first press materials or any on-disc extras.
