"Kings" are individuals who have been bestowed with incredible supernatural powers and granted the ability to recruit others into their clans. Protecting the lives and honor of their clansmen is an integral part of the Kings' duties. After a video depicting the heinous murder of a Red Clansman spreads virally, the unassuming student Yashiro Isana is accused of homicide. Now, a manhunt is underway for his head, bringing him into contact with the infamous "Black Dog" Kurou Yatogami—a skilled swordsman and martial artist determined to follow the wishes of his late master, the Seventh King.

Meanwhile, the current Red King, Mikoto Suou, faces his own imminent demise as the search for Yashiro narrows. But during Yashiro's struggle to prove his innocence, a greater conspiracy is unraveling behind the scenes; clouds begin to appear in his memory, and close friends start to question his very existence. What began as a simple murder is now leading towards a full blown war between Kings with the very fate of the world at stake.

I enjoyed the plot and honestly dont have a single issue with the anime. I never really felt lost or confused and honestly liked all the characters for the most part except Yata (I will admit he's kinda cool tho). While the anime didn't answer almost any questions, it felt complete and i enjoyed it for what it was. I never got too attached to any of the characters which for me makes it an 8. I never got emotionally invested in this anime, it was just an enjoyable, problem free, watch.

idk if art style is the right term here since, to me, they ...

Mixed Feelings
This anime is carried by its top-tier art and animation.

Action-wise, the first episode of the show baits you into thinking the show will be an action-packed turf war between clans with different powers. You end up seeing barely one fight half-way through the anime and a little more sprinkled throughout the last few episodes with one final fight. A lot of potential fights end up being escape scenes.

Story-wise, the main "group" you follow throughout the story feel like side-characters for most of the anime. The world you're set into has absolutely no context; you're left wondering "why" anything of what you're seeing is happening, ...

This anime is not outright terrible, it's just very boring. It has an interesting premise, a unique art style, and interesting character design. I wanted to like it so I watched the whole season, but I never got invested. The story was bland and uninteresting at best and confusing at worst. The stakes and drama never felt genuine, and I was very lost throughout multiple episodes. If the audience was given a little more clarification, the characters had a little more depth, or if the audience felt more of a personal investment in the stakes, it would be much more compelling. Overall, it's not the ...
