Escape from Zhao Arc is the 3rd story arc of the Kingdom manga.


This arc tells the story of how Ei Sei was smuggled from the state of Zhao, where he was held as a political hostage, to Qin in order to become the rightful successor to the throne.

Qin army commanders approached a group of black market merchants led by Shi Ka and asked them to secretly transport an eight-year-old child out of Zhao and into Qin, with the excuse that it was a very important figure for their state. Shi Ka accepted the job and promised to live up to her employer's expectations.

At first the journey went smooth, as Shi Ka had a lot of connections and was able to pass through the checkpoints without raising any suspicion. However, it was not before long that the Zhao officials noticed Sei's disappearance and sent a small army after them.

In the meantime, Shi Ka helped Sei face his inner demons and accept his fate. The persuers reached Shi Ka's wagon just outside Qin. After a fierce battle Shi Ka and her comrades managed to protect the future king at the cost of their own lives. Not a minute to late, Shou Bun Kun arrived and took of the remnants of the Zhao soldiers securing Sei and welcoming him to his new homeland.


  • Kou, Sei's favorite consort is introduced.
