Okay, this is all done. Episode 1 of the new season of Kingdom. It’s awesome, check it out.
Getting this episode took a while for a few reasons:
1. We had to translate the OP/ED in addition to the episode.
2. The OP/ED, credits, and other things had to be styled, karaoke-timed, etc.
3. We got the raws a day late because the show is new so our raw provider didn’t know to cap it so we had to find a different raw source than normal.
4. The show in general takes a lot of time and effort to translate and check.
5. I still had to do Toriko, other projects I have, and all my other life obligations, including a full-time job, in addition to translating this and making sure all the first-episode jobs and regular jobs get done.
6. We do this for free, putting considerable effort for basically nothing in return for the sake of fans so they can enjoy the series. So this is a hobby, we can’t make it the top priority in our lives to get everything done in a few hours or whatever. We only have one person per job and no substitutes for anything, so the process has to be done with consideration to everyone’s schedules/time zones.
7. Lots of signs.

Anyhow, it’s totally awesome. I hope you all enjoy it. Basing on what’s in this episode, they’re back-tracking to get some of the stuff from the manga that was skipped in the first season animated. Not the assassin arc probably because that’s kind of impossible at this point, given that half of it is Qiang Lei’s backstory. But stuff like Zi Xia is in the Ending indicates they’ll do Zheng’s flashback arc. Anyhow, the next episode shouldn’t take so long. Hope you guys enjoy it.

    THANK YOU ANIME DESTINY! I got a little irritated for you all when I read the part where you had to explain to some dimwit that you did this for free. Thank you so much, really appreciate the time you spend to share this with us!!

    Thank you for all your hard work A-D

    I have one question though, why was Wang Qi labelled as the Demon bird of Qin and not the mystery bird of Qin?

    Thank you for your hard work

    I really like chinese names. It is very helpful to learn their historical counterpart with proper names, like you guys used.

    Really, thanks a lot

    I really appreciate ur great efforts, they really worth a milliom thanks, or more):.

  15. Qate June 15, 2013

    Would you consider two tracts, Chinese names in the first, and Japanese ones in the other?
    I was introduced to the series by the manga (which is better than the anime, btw) which uses Japanese names, which are released by your manga group (Vandetta) and other one.
    Its hard to follow both, to remember both japanese names and chinese ones.

    Thank you so much for your hard work. I’m subbing myself, so I know how much work it is to sub an anime. So I really appreciate your effort. So anyway: You really made my day! And since you are the only ones subbing Kingdom and also did a great job with the first season, I have to tell you, that I absolutely love you <3
