K: Return of Kings Episode 13 Discussion
Dec 25, 2015 9:20 AM
THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Alright, I think the finale had its purpose although I still find it strange for this season.
For one, Neko is still being annoying despite her really trying to help. It was nice to see Kuro and Shiro stand side by side though. Music was good as usual, that was expected. The story felt pretty rushed in the end although I have to say that Kuro carried this finale well. Anna is also hard to dismiss with her presence so I think the show did a decent job capturing her overall role in this season.
Still a meh sequel though.

Green king convincing that the stone is what they need to survive, like Neko was the survivor. Neko said she doesn't need it. When White vs. Green starts, Red releases power. Wow, is it imagination or ex-red king really appeared, too?
The coin gave Kuro power, and he won (wow, that was too short). He led his senpai go. Gathering the power through swords to destroy the stone? Kuro caught up. Power lost and everyone's saved, even blue king. Sawashiro-san's character's slap to blue king was epic. Except for green king, though, who used the stone to survive. Grey king appeared to led them escape because he would stay with green. White king's body is borrowed, so he had to return the body to Shiro the student.

Neko is officially student. And the real white king, too?! Which one is the new teacher? I'm guessing white is...

Kind of left some questions behind, like how is shiro still kind of alive when his power faded away, i expected him to fade into a old man. I'm pretty sure his power kept his original body young.
What happened to scepter 4 they were given special rights because of the blue king , but his powers are gone. The red i guess could just chill out at the bar forever.
The best part i guess was when seri punch munakata.

- Someone please explain me how is Kuroh using his Colourless Aura (the "extending hand power") that he got from beeing Colourless King Clansman at a time after teh Slate has been destroyed? Because this is just idiotic. And no. This is clearly Clansman Aura, not Strain powers, as this was clearly established in the Universe (novels+season1). Same goes for Miss Ninja That Helped Fushimi who also uses her Green Clansman Powers. This makes NO SENSE.
What Shiro said at 18:33 probably means that the power loss is gradual, not immediate. I mean, his soul didn't leave his borrowed body the instant the slates got destroyed. It took his powers some time to completely fade I guess?

The big question is what the hell is up with Shiro at the end? Is that his original body? Did he somehow get another? How did he even come back? I can call this a plot hole, right? I don't remember any sort of explanation for this type of thing
Yeah, that was really confusing. I thought the silver king obtained the power of immortality through the slates, but they no longer exist now so how did he get his old body back?

why is the strong girl dude suddenly weak?i thought he was stronk.
why is shiro still alive? i thought the damocles will fall to it's king not anywhere else?
also on that note, why is shiro's damocles down so fast while munakata is.... several episodes long?
why is munakata still alive anyways? that dude is defying too much logic here.
why are there too many plot holes? these guys are making sponge look great.
5/10 i enjoyed the reusedanimation, and the music. the writing is meh. the fight scenes were awesome too.
neko is still being a royal annoyance.

Power works like this
Slates > Kings > Clansmen
so slates gone, kings have not enough power to keep all damocles swords showing, because IT NEEDS A LOT OF POWER, Nagare Dies in seconds because he has a F* network of thousands of people LEECHING HIS POWERS and HE IS ALREADY DEAD so no matter how much power he had, without the slates(the only thing keeping him alive), ITS GONE in seconds and after a couple hours i guess all clansmen powers will be gone too after depleting all kings powers, Silver king got his body back , still 9/10 i really wanted to see the blue king being killed :/ R.I.P mikoto

Treatment of Neko's backstory was really damn rough. Within 30 seconds they go 'yo this happened to you. how tragic.'
Should've dedicated a whole episode to that so that we can actually feel for her and not view her as big breasted comic relief cat girl.
That was not very cool, considering they did make it a point of mystery when Neko's real name was first mentioned in this season. I thought maybe I could care about her a little when her backstory was revealed, but this made me back to not caring about her at all.
Despite my complaints, I think the last episode ended with a bang. Pretty cool how Shiro used the Damocles Sword drop to destroy the slates. I do wonder the same thing about how Weismann is still alive looking as he did years and years ago...but eh, I stopped questioning some things in this series a long time ago. Back to the last episode, I liked how they brought back some of S1's tracks, particularly Mikoto's theme. Felt quite nostalgic. Honestly without the awesome music to accompany the series, I probably wouldn't have continued the series. The music really made a really good contribution to the episodes and made them easier and more entertaining to watch. The family and eating around the table theme was nice, but it just wasn't done effectively and weaved into the series that well.

Liked Season 1 more tbh... Lots of reused scenes over and over in this season.
Does anyone know the OST that played @ 13:23 onward for a little bit? They played it almost all the episodes during fights and stuff but I just can't find the name.
