A year after the devastating battle against the formidable Zhao, the State of Qin has returned its focus to pursuing King Ying Zheng's ambition of conquering the other six states and unifying China. Their next target is Wei, a smaller state which stands as a geographic stepping stone for the sake of conquest. Li Xin, now a three hundred man commander of the swiftly rising Fei Xin Unit, continues to seek out lofty achievements in order to garner recognition for himself and his soldiers, motivated by those previously lost in battle. In the preliminary battles ahead of Qin's invasion of Wei, Xin finds competition in other young commanders who are of a higher social status than him. Back in Qin, the royal palace faces turmoil as opposing factions begin to make their move against Ying Zheng's regime. With their hands full both abroad and at home, Zheng and Xin must lead the way in this era of unending war, resolved to etch their names in history by creating a unified China.

More emotional scenes and progress towards their dreams. The anime that reignited my passion when anime didn’t excite me like it used to.


Such a wonderful war anime, I could feel my blood boiling on the fight scenes

Sunshine And Lilacs

More the stratigic and fierce pair that vow to end the warring states era. Very good!


Animation improved from S1, and it continued to pull me into the story. Now I’m just crushed there’s no S3. WTF?! This deserves more…


This is the best historical anime out there.


The CG became less apparent and the 2D art looks crisp. I do really enjoy this series but the manga will blow your mind. A good “”shounen””.
