With strong sales of the manga in Japan and an anime that did well there but was criminally neglected here, the first season of Kingdom has now found its way to Crunchyroll here. Thanks to the partnership with funimation, the first season that ran thirty-eight episodes has now arrived on the service. It’s available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles while the dub remains on Funimation’s site. Availability for it is pretty decent as it’s open to viewers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa,
