The third season of the anime premiered in 2020, while the first two seasons premiered in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Pierrot produced all three seasons, with its subsidiary St.Signpost sharing animation production credits for the third season.

Crunchyroll describes the first season as:

Shin and Hyou are war-orphans in the kingdom of Qin. They dream of proving themselves on the battlefield until the day Hyou is captured by a minister. The boy manages to escape and return to his village, but he is badly injured. Shin then meets a mysterious youth who bears an eerie resemblance to Hyou—a boy who will one day become emperor!
