I had to pause for a moment, because I couldn't stop laughing. This scene was hilarious.

"No, it's ninjutsu..." LOL xDD

Visually stunning which goes as expected!

The number of bishounen increased, which means more sexy male voices. 8) Ahh~ Nanikawa Daisuke's voice at the end, his "um" when Lieutenant was dying was so beautiful and well acted. *nod nod*

They managed to threw a few comedic scenes that I enjoyed a lot. The best one must be the blue king insisting called the masked one a ninja. hahaha

But seriously, I barely remember the important things that happened, I might have to rewatch the last 2 episodes before watching the upcoming s2!

The movie was alright, I kind of expected Anna to be the next red king, Kamamoto's new look was a nice change and OMG Munakata's sword! I loved the scenary porn, everything was so sparkly! Yukari is absolutely fabulous, I'm not sure I liked him as a character though.

While I didn't like some aspects of the movie such as the irritating CGI use for animating the helicopters and cars (this is why I couldn't finish King of Thorn...), or where some parts of the dialogue/character actions seemed a bit awkward, I still liked moments where Munakata and Fushimi were disagreeing on ninja/masked man labels and when Yata thanked Fushimi at the end (him blushing is too cute!).

I was a little disappointed about the lack of info on the Green King (we only got his name, no clue about his objectives as of yet) and that Shiro didn't show up much in the movie, the PV got me too hyped up! But at least it sets the stage for the second season :D I can't wait!

Just watched it , animation was good , but I gotta say that I was expecting a lot more from GoHands , it wasn't bad , but I thought it was going to stand out compared to the anime.

Anyway it was a good movie afterall , was good to see everybody again , specially liked the part where Anna became the red king.

Now we have to wait for the season two lol.

I actually don't think Munakata is going to die, though. They showed us what happens if the Sword starts cracking in S1, and I really doubt they're just going to repeat the same thing in S2. I actually believe that they will all lose their super powers before that happens, although I think that would be the most shit ending ever. But at the moment I just don't see it any other way, and I kind of think that the movie kind of foreshadowed this sort of ending.

I mean, for example: how possible it is for Shiro to actyally stay immortal at this point? That would be great if he did, but I think that the creators will go with "oh, he found friends, he doesn't need to be immortal anymore" plot, as they always do. But I doubt he'll be the only one to lose powers, so they will just strip all the kings from powers in one go.

That's just a speculation though. I hope, I'm worng.

Aye that was a really good movie, quite enjoyed it.

Loved the new characters, Green clan is pretty cool, they got ninjas and shit, can't wait to see their King. Pretty sweet that Red clan got a new King, but nothing can match with Blue clan and their class tho.

Looking forward to the 2nd season.

So, Green Clan will be the antagonist for S2. There's still 1 more clan that hasn't been unveil yet, wonder if they're gonna reveal it on S2.
Keep on moving forward

So much lol when the Blue King and Fushimi were talking about the Green Clan's ability. Ninja this, ninja that. Was even more hilarious since he's voiced by Sugita, reminded me of Gintoki. Didn't take him for that kind of character from the TV series.

I really do like GoHands studio, the animation for certain scenes were fantastic but at the same time some scenes felt on par with the TV series, which is actually a con considering this is a movie. I'm talking action scenes. No biggie though, enjoyed it just fine regardless this series.

And oh man, dat ass.

Was not expecting such a zoomed in shot of that. Trying to appeal both sides in fanservice.

i think it wasn't really a recap [at least for me] and i am very glad that finally it didnt focus so much on the main characters but then now i feel bad because i wanted more screen time for shiro (idk why people hate him). i loved the ending, very mysterious yet open. lovely soundtrack and superb top notch animation. this was--needless to say better than the entire first season. i am definitely looking forward to the next season. it wasn't perfect obviously, it lacked a little but it was very enjoyable. idk how can you not appreciate an anime with such beautiful art and music?

So this is what it feel like between watching in theater and watching at home. You started to noticed all this small details and the story-line look clearer to you. There wasn't that much excitement and blood gushing thrilling moment anymore.

This just remind me of how I hate season 1 because of all the BL moment. T-T
I rated it 10 in cinema but only 8 for the BD ver. release.

Great animation and soundtrack - both noticeable highlights of this film. I liked Anna's role as the Red King and I guess perhaps the Green King will be season 2's antagonist. Comedy wasn't good in this film though but the action made it up on most parts.

Well there's still a few more months until the upcoming season. Also I didn't think the ending was a cliffhanger.

Finally after waiting for so long it's finally here with subs and in Blue-ray quality :D. I gotta say I was not disappointed at all. The animation and fight scenes were jaw-dropping so I wonder what the budget was for this. Also Anna is the new Red King, Blue King's time is running out, and Shiro is coming back. Next season looks like it's gonna be awesome.

Seeing how many don't bother with the manga series or novels it doesn't suprise me to see some confusion and disappointment. For example;
Well, I loved the movie for its great animation quality and a nice short story that will tie together the first and second season. K is pretty unique with splitting the stories into light novels, different manga and anime. Too bad the novels have yet to be completely translated though, for example one can learn about when Mikoto became king.

Oh my god, did anybody pay any attention to the soundtrack at all? It was damn flawless. Of course, the animation was top notch, as always.

I thought this was better than S1 tbh, but that's just me.

Anna is the new king, interesting, her awakening was awesome. Shiro is still alive and he looks more mature.
Animation and sound are great ! The ending by Angela also :).

In short, very good movie, now I'm looking forward to watch the second season.

okay that was great. the whole S1 was like a movie to begin with and the animation went from excellent to exceptional (lol). and the OST is as great as ever and the motion is fluid whenever Yata makes an entry xD. and ..

Cant wait for S2 and the other kings.., though i wish i cud marathon them episodes rather than watch 'em weekly like i did s1 + movie.

Superb, dynamic animation.
Fantastic high definition scenery details.
New camera angles.
Foreshadowing of a next movie? or 2nd season?

Lacks build-up. Must watch right after the anime to make an impact.
Anti-climatic ending.

Despite it's cutting edge animation, which probably the best I've seen in my life, the continuing plot feels 'bland'. Maybe because it's been a year or so since I've watched the TV series, or maybe not.

Curious how Munakata warned Mikoto in S1 that killing a king would raise his Weissman level over the critical threshold, which as it turns out is exactly what now happened to him instead.

This and Shiro's talk at the end give me the feeling that they might just abolish the entire system eventually. Which makes sense given how much disaster it seems to bring, but on the other hand I don't want to see it disappear.

Also, the climactic fight between Kuro and Mishakuji Yukari was fantastic, as was the music.
Even if it makes no sense how they can stick to to a building. Kuro doesn't even seem to be using his powers to do so.

Great movie, even if it was basically foreshadowing for season 2. Probably could have made OVA instead of a movie but the movie was beautiful. Can't wait for Season 2 now!
Anna as the new red king was pretty obvious, but I love that she is the new king and I can't wait to see her and Reishi interact. I'm going to be very bummed if Reishi dies.

Kurou's new look was awesome. He is fast turning into my favorite character. I know everyone ships Shiro x Kurou but I love Kurou x Kukuri and was happy to see her even if it was only for a few minutes.

I was sorta hoping at the end of last season that Yata would have become the next Red King over Anna but I can live with it. Very good movie nonetheless, just found out about the next season too which is even better news!

It looks absolutely beautiful, but the writing is still terrible. I love the OST though and this time, neko wasn't as annoying so that's a plus as well. They didn't bother to explain the most important stuff for me - what was up with the phoenix? Why did anna had to "fight" against it (seeing it disappeared, she won)? That dream was convenient as fuck, I call plot device. Actually, that whole "awakening" = plot device.
