    Ouki‘s lips aren’t big enough, but besides that it looks good.

    It's the "Kingdom" manga that had anime adaptations for the past few years.

    And I agree with some comments. Shin looks too old

    Y'know, Kingdom is actually fairly well suited for a live action. Normally I think live actions are... stupid. But not in this case.

    While I do agree if you think about it at the beginning Shin is about 13 or 14 years old. For a war movie with that kind of bloody scenes it’s a bit too young.

    Considering it's a sword his best friend got while he was being the king's body double, you can be pretty sure it's a damn good sword.
    There's actually a few other characters who are very similar to his age , and considering the whole situation, teenagers in war isn't necessarily uncommon nor common. It's what happens if things are bad enough or they volunteer in advance.

    That being said, i'm not sure if I should be hoping they go as realistic as possible or try and go according to the manga as much as possible.

    Ya it is. But I think the actor would fit the Shin after a few years. Not the Shin from before he joined the army

    Ooh, it's been awhile since I last read Kingdom, but I'm hyped for this live action. I forgot if the first arc covered the entire story with Ouki. I hope they do cover it, because I loved it a lot and it made me really emotional.
