It’s not like they are similar, especially if it’s about characters, but both anime have a bit similar plot. They future a prince/king on the run, fighting for their life. Both of them meet powerful warrior who is also a commoner.Kingdom is a lot more mature and violent, but i have a feeling that you will like the other one if you already watched one of them.

9. Yona of the Dawn

Description: In the kingdom of Kouka, Princess Yona lives a sheltered but peaceful life with her pacifist father, King II. Surrounded by attentive servants and protected by her bodyguard Hak, Yona’s only difficulties in life are her unruly red hair and trying to convince her father to let her marry her cousin, Soo-wan.

She embarks on a quest to find allies, and an ancient legend involving the Crimson Dragon King and his four Dragon Warriors may be her key to reclaiming her kingdom.

Number of Episodes: 24

Both have a person with a right to the throne, who finds themselves become relatively powerless but still strives to find their own path through life.

8. The Heroic Legend of Arslan

Description: As Arslan gathers forces to fight for his cause, his progress is suddenly halted by the warring Princes of the neighboring country, Sindhura. Both brothers believe they have equal claim to the throne, but only one can succeed their father.

But their detour in Sindhura gives Lord Silver Mask and his followers time to strengthen their own influence back in Pars. The mystery surrounding Arslan’s true parentage has loyal Parsians questioning his right to rule. Shocked by the revelation that he may be fighting for a throne that isn’t his, Arslan has to wonder: Is blood truly what makes a king Or is the love he has for Pars and its people enough to see him through?

Number of Episodes: 33

Release Year: 2015 – 2016

In Kingdom the second main character(the king/prince) aims to reclaim his throne and establish a better kingdom, and it’s  the same in Arslan. Though in Arslan it will probably take the whole series to do this, when in Kingdom they move onto Xin’s dream of being a general.

They also both contain some battle strategies and battles. It’s kindom’s main focus and is on a grand scale, and in Arslan it’s till present within large-small scale battles. 

This is a small similarity (both supporting roles), but Falagies and Qiang Lei both know how to hold their own on a battlefield and aren’t outwardly clingly/obsessed with the main character, which is something we don’t always see within female characters in Anime. 

7. Berserk

Description: Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?

Number of Episodes: 25

Release Year: 1997 – 1998

Both animes are feudal. Both animes have two main male protoganists  that have similar contrasting characters. Gutz (Berserk) is similar in personality to Xin (Kingdom), being strong, aggresive to the point of volatile, and sees the world in slighly simple terms. This personality type serves as a counter point  Piao/Zheng (Kingdom) and Griffith (Berserk), being the more calm, always thinking type. Both animes also involve the teaming up of these two contrasting male-leads in an effort to obtain a kingdom. However these animes are not in the same ‘class’. Kingdom thus far does not share Berserks depth or more adult method of story telling. 

6. Romance of the Three Kingdoms

Description: In ancient China, only one law is followed: “every man for himself.” The political system is corrupt and unfair, and war is raging throughout the country. However, one man, Liu Bei, is different; he is a simple mat-weaver who one day discovers that he is in fact one of the possible heirs to the throne of China, and he longs for a change in his homeland. Alongside two fierce warriors, Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, Liu Bei sets forth on a journey for change, while strengthening the bonds of friendship and brotherhood with his newfound comrades.

Number of Episodes: 47

Kingdom is happening after the three kingdom story, so it’s like s sequel.

Both anime talks about (almost) the same great warriors, generals.

Both anime talks about the unification of China

5. Lord Marksman and Vanadis

Description: Tigrevurmud Vorn, the young lord of a remote region far from the kingdom’s center, is commanded by the king to go fight the war against a neighboring country. The leader of the enemy is Eleonora Viltaria, one of the seven Vanadis given supernatural arms from a dragon. The moment when an archer boy and the silver-haired beautiful war maiden meet, it is the beginning for the legend of a hero that will be told for generations to come.

Number of Episodes: 13

Release Year: 2014

Both of thwese shows are brilliant. The hero is Lord Marksman and Vanadis is Lord Tigre, an expert marksman and a count of the land of Alsice. He only wants peace for his people, but he is pulled into a desperate fight for survival and for good. In Kingdom, the hero is Xin, a slave that earned his freedom by rescuing the rightful ruler of of the state of Qin and has aspirations of becoming the greatest general under the heavens.

Both shows have intelligent story-lines that keep you on your toes and guessing as to who might win out in the end. Although, everyone knows the hero’s always come out on top.

4. Nobunaga Concerto

Description: Due to some unlikely events, Saburo is flung back in time to the Sengoku Era. In the past, he meets a young, but sickly Oda Nobunaga, one of Japan’s greatest war lords.

Number of Episodes: 10

Release Year: 2014

They have a very similar kind of story-line. Both are large-army warring states type shows… In Kingdom, Xin is a slave that gains his freedom and embarks on a journey to become the greatest general under the stars via unbelievable feats of physical prowess, but in Nobunaga Concerto, the hero (Saburo/Oda Nobunaga) drops out of the sky after being transported back in time somehow and has knowledge of the future. Both are really cool.

3. Alderamin on the Sky

Description: The huge Katvana Empire is at war with the neighboring Kioka republic. In a corner of the empire, a young man is about be caught up in the flames of war. His name is Iwata Soroku. He’s lazy, a philanderer, and he hates war. He’s about as far from a soldier as you can get. On his way towards the next stage of officer’s qualification exams, he and his childhood friend Yatorishino Igsem encounter the nurse trainee Harouma Beckle, Mashuu Tetrijirch, a member of the old military faction, and Torwey Lemion….

Number of Episodes: 13

Release Year: 2016

Both are big in tactics & strategies, showing how they work both from a general’s point of view and the soldier’s perspective. Both show very well the hardships, atrocities, and insanity of war. Both have great battles and are not shy from showing the violence, gore, and emotional impact of war.

2. Vinland Saga

Description: Around the end of the millennium, Viking, the mightiest but atrocious tribe, had been outbreaking everywhere. Thorfinn, the son of the greatest warrior, lived his childhood in the battlefield. He was seeking the land of reverie called Vinland. This is the story of a true warrior in an age of turmoil.

Both anime are war oriented and have a similar feel in when it comes to the battle scenes, the determination in Shin and Thorfinn also overlaps.
