The Gold Kingdom and Water Kingdom movie is based on a josei manga by Nao Iwamoto. He launched the manga in Shogakukan’s Flowersshojo manga magazine in October 2014, then it was serialized in Shogakukan’s Flowers magazine from October 2014 to April 2016.
The manga tells the story of two neighboring countries who never agreed with one another, even going as far as to settle things in the most trivial ways possible. One day, fate has it that a princess by the name of Sara meets a young man named Naranbayar, who comes from the opposing country. The manga topped Takarajimasha’s Kono Manga ga Sugoi! list of best manga for female readers in 2017.
