    I saw this on MAL.

    "According to Hara Yasuhisa's latest tweet, the manga is officially at its halfway point with the conclusion of the Rao Ai's rebellion arc, achieving unification within Qin. The second half of the manga will begin the week after next (from the day he tweeted) as Mr Hara needed some time plan for the second half of the manga. "

    Mr Hara Yasuhisa's twitter: https://twitter.com/harayassa

    So how would you rate the first half ? I would give it a perfect score. This series just got better as it progressed, and the recent events have been perfect for concluding the first half & setting up the second. I believe Kingdom is only going to get better. Go for it Hara !

    That's definitely huge news! Kindgom was beyond amazing on the first half, and I expect no less from the second half, heck I even think it will be even better as it continues to progress.

    I simply cannot wait for more, the first half ended just perfectly. The future arcs are hype!

    While i'm happy to hear that i'm also sad because we come closer to the end of this masterpiece.

    Hara did an amazing job and showed new ways in a shonen. I rate it a 10/10 because it was amazing and i expect that it will go that way and won't be a let down as most Mangas are when they come close to the end.

    It will only get better indeed. That is its hidden ingredient, consistently progressive in quality. Thank you for bringing us this bitter sweet news :)

    Sad to hear that such a great manga is at it's halfway point. I truly hope it gets the recognition it deserves. Was first introduced to it by @Sammy and since then it's become basically my second favorite manga.

    This second half is going to be amazing. Uniting China is gonna be great

    I'd rate it a sideways 8/10
    Such good things must come to an end sadly this is one of those times, but savor these sweet moments that have made the manga special.
    Looking forward to more development and where Shin will be when all is said and done as well as the characters around him as they have felt like family. Also Thank You @Sammy for introducing this great manga to me. :yaaa:

    So Kingdom is gonna end in the 900ish chapter?.. pft

    I would the first half a perfect 10, It has those feels, those epic moments, badass moments with the main characters and secondary characters. Inspiring Villains if you can say that(they are the opposing side) like Renpa, Rinboku, etc.
    Telling us about about "boring" history of China unification into an action pack manga is awesome!

    The first half was definitely very good, great wars, tactics, twists, revelations and great characters... Imo It would be extremely difficult for Hara to surpass it without falling into repetition and asspull characters, still I have faith in the author, he's been awesome and managed the first half veery well so far, so why not the second half?:yaaa:

    To be perfectly honest, it ended a little more on the slow side compared to middle 2/4ths of it (the first 1/4 was also buildup).

    Having said that, I think the first half has been pretty much perfect. The slow-down was to be expected, after all.

    Damn, This manga's already halfway. Ei Sei's political battle's is pretty much over and now this manga's going to get real entertaining and real fun very quickly with the path of conquest.

    half way already. This is an awesome manga.
    BTW do you think there will be a tym skip btw the first half & the second?
    I hope it happens then they show us what happened through flash backs.
    I want to see Shin, Ouhon and Mouten and Kyou Kai as a generals

    This aint shonen so no time skips
    Time skips = Essentially losing out on war and planning ,-,

    Also Kingdom is at no 1 position in E-Book and Paper print sales these days it seems

    There was a time skip earlier @ the point where Shin started using the glaive.
    I hope it happens again

    Instead of time skip that can be regarded as normal events in course
    since this is war manga essentially any time where there is no War or Political War is skipped.

    Time Skip in this series regard would be skipping a war or two which rose someone status greatly
    I mean how would we feel if Shin becomes Great General in a Timeskip. We cant even realize his glory :s

    And considering from now on it will be war at literally ever step , Doubt we will get something like time skip ofc, stuff like few months to even 1 yr is acceptable but for manga spanning over time period of decades it cant be termed as time skip.

    I see your point. I just want to see Shin as a general.
