Tensions are running high among the clans as the Green King begins making moves that threaten to drive the world into pandemonium. Following the death of the Gold King, the safety of the Dresden Slate, the source of power of the Kings, is under threat. Nagare Hisui, the sly and mysterious leader of the Green Clan Jungle, is determined to procure the powerful Slate by any means possible.

Standing directly in his way is Sceptre 4, the Blue Clan, headed by their unyielding King, Reishi Munakata. However, the grim sight of his crumbling Sword of Damocles leaves the stability of his clan and all of Japan in jeopardy. Meanwhile, still recovering from their tragic losses, Anna Kushina and her aggressive clan HOMRA find themselves caught up in the Green King's games. Amidst the chaos, Kurou Yatogami and Neko are left vulnerable while their beloved friend, Yashiro Isana, the Silver King, remains missing.

As the remaining clans struggle against the Green King's formidable forces, one final king appears.

This series is one of the hidden gems in the anime community..
If you are an anime fan you owe yourself to watch both seasons of this anime,
I watched the S1 back in 2014 on Animax and was visually stunned by it.

In terms of animation, it's 8/10 since there is too much CG (more than necessary) but still enjoyable not on Hand shaker's level.

the story overall is 6/10 not because it is bad but rather it always seems like I am watching a small part of a much grander narrative (yeah, yeah I know should read the LNs) the plot is extremely rushed.

The characters ...

Mixed Feelings
Personally, K: Return of Kings does not live up to its first season. While the sound design and OST stood out - which is a part that I would give kudos to this anime for - the story and the characters were exceptionally lackluster and might I say... Boring.

There were times during this anime that I genuinely felt bored, the pacing while not too slow - there are in fact only 13 episodes - was not dynamic enough especially for the first 3 quarters of this season. On top of that, I was thoroughly disappointed with how useless the main characters seemed to be in ...

What a disappointment!

So, for anyone who read my review for the original K series, you already know how much I love it. I still, to this day, believe that K is one of the most underrated anime shows out there and I stand by it. But after watching both the sequel movie as well as this series, it is more than clear that the writers of K did not learn from any of their past mistakes. In fact, they capitalized on the issues and added a plethora of new issues to the ...
