Set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we're familiar with, K follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings.

Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Yashiro Isana, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men.

After watching this series, I asked myself "What happened?" followed by "Why did I watch this?"
Well folks, let's start with the reason why I watched this series.

This is probably the only reason why you would watch this eye-candy of an anime. It's so superb. The animation is so smooth. The fight scenes are awesome (although few). The art is so detailed. The colors are vibrant (but sometimes annoyingly too much). Character Designs are good. They fit each character's personalities. It really is a feast for the eyes.

Soundtrack was pretty good. OP & ED are thumbs up. Voice acting was well done. There's nothing much to read more

For me, K, although flawed, did present a very enjoyable and stuck-to-the-screen experience. The overall concept was decent, but presenting it was mediocre, partially due to time constraints (I would imagine).

Story - 5.
Although the concept of the anime was an intriguing one, the execution was not so well done. A lot of times I was confused by what was happening, with no real explanation afterward. The overall story I understand, however little things are left unsaid - anything about the kings really, their origin, very little is actually said about powers, how and why different people have them, and so on. It left me with read more

Art and Animation: 9

I'll start out by writing about the positive aspects of this anime, which is obviously the art and animation quality. Fantastic fluidity to motions. Very active scenes and active bodies. The color usage is bold and nothing to overlook, however, I did start to find the experimental color gradient to be a little bit of an eyesore at times. Yet, at other times it was definitely effective in setting the mood. The characters were cleanly drawn with slim, delicate figures. Smaller details such as clothing design and the cityscape are fun.

Character: 6

The show is similar to Durarara! in that it incorporates read more

Anime: Durarara!!
Both series have what appears to be a somewhat naive, 'head in the clouds' main character, though both have a hidden side and secrets to be revealed.

The series also have a similar... Atmosphere to them, I guess you'd say. There is just something about both of them. Sends pleasant shivers down your spine.

They also have a variety of viewpoints, both switching from time to time to focus on different characters and aspects of one huge puzzle; though Durarara is more complex than K, with a broader cast of characters as well.

Anime: Karneval (TV)
Both series feature two protagonists—one white-haired, the other black-haired—in a sort of guarded-guardian relationship. As well, both white-haired protagonists have more to them than meets the eye. The characters of Karneval and K [Project] interact within alternate realities wherein mystical occurrences are possible.

The two series share the quality of having fantastical aspects in play throughout their progressions. Characters' powers are unique, and there's no shortage of futuristic gadgets and sci-fi elements. In conjunction with this environment are paramount forces and organizations that engage in power struggles as connections between characters are gradually revealed.

Anime: Hamatora The Animation
Similar vibe. Our main cast has a bar hangout just like in K. Gangs who possess supernatural powers. Power struggle with other gangs over territory. Lots of characters who are very close. Action packed and add some comedy from time to time. Talented voice actors can be heard in both series. For example Fukuyama Jun and many more.

Anime: Guilty Crown
High budget, great animation, great VAs but no cohesive/appealing story, tries desperately to be another better made show (in the case of K: Durarara and in the case of Guilty Crown: Code Geass).

Anime: Code:Breaker
They both have "clans" or "gangs" of people with special powers who are unknown to the public.

Both protagonist get into trouble with people who have special powers.

Anime: Higashi no Eden
Both series start off with the Main Character losing their memories, forgetting who they are and make it their main objective to discover their identity. The main characters of both works are also accused of a major crime by everyone, (terrorism in Eden of the East and murder in K). Both series also have a female lead who believes that the main character is not the criminal that everyone is lead to believe and a slight romance is there. Both series also have lots of twists throughout the story.
