Despite the many reused scenes I'm quite happy with the ending since no one really died. But how did Shiro get his body back though? Err. Those stills of Saruhiko and Misaki enjoying each other's company god knows how long I waited for it ;____; I'm hoping that there would be an ova or something showing what happens after this season since I'm curious how things go for them now that they don't have powers anymore.

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.

Don't know what it's called since the entire OST isn't released yet.

I can stop suffering from anxiety after every episode release now. Good animation and sound even though some of the former was recycled. I don't really want to go into the plot since I'm not even good at breaking it down or analyzing it.

I was expecting something better but overall it was okay, animation very good though there were some mishaps and the soundtrack was cool.

Season 1 was better, but I enjoyed this one as well. From a critic point of view, I'll prolly give it a 5 though.

It was nice seeing Shiro in his original body in the end though, and I guess I was sorta happy seeing a happy end. I expected this final episode to be really action packed or something, and Kurou's fight was disappointing given all the build up it felt like we got for it.

6/10 , That sure's been a disappointment the story was pretty flat all along , it was the same for the 2 prequels but for them something was going on , during this season 3 not much really happened in comparaison . imo this anime's 2 strongest points are the same as the prequels : OST & Art .

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.
He got his Original body back, The Colorless king used his power to eject him out of his body so since the slates' no longer exist the colorless king's magic is gone as well and during the movie "K : Missing Kings" It was revealed that the Gold King has saved the Silver King’s original body from the sea and had it restored to its original form so his soul came back to his body just like the soul of the teenage boy he was possessing did

That's the first time I can truly say that I'm a bit disappointed with K, although... Maybe not. Hell, I'm not sure what I feel just now. I had the same problem with K: Project and with Missing Kings. They all are like marvelous pieces of art to me (with juuuust a little too much of fanservice - I'm into girls, but come on), but somehow they cannot make it to 10/10. It's always 8 or 9 out of 10, there is always something missing.
Timeline is just right (I don't mind taking it slow), art is beautiful, I've got characters I care about - Kuro, Munakata, Fushimi, Shiro, Mikoto - music is caressing my ears, action is swirling... But it still misses something and I can't even tell what it is. It's just subjective feeling. I already have 9 pieces scored 10/10, if I remember correctly, and that 10 always meant that this anime simply could not be made better. That even if it has flaws they are minor or I don't mind, that I'm simply in love with them. But what is Retung of Kings missing for me? What is it, that I can't even name properly?

I want more. I want that f.ckin 10/10 finally. I want it to mean something.

Neko kept flashing her underwear this ep.


Best part of the ep was Seri-chan punching the captain.


Fushimi proved why is he is the best, and not a traitor as everyone initially believed.

I love the K anime series! The music is awesome everything is so colourful and the animation is cool ^_^
I liked the ending it gave a satisfying feeling of this is how its supposed to be.. although i want everyone to have powers still!
I hope there will be more in the future :)

I liked how Mikoto appeared with Anna "burn them!"
And how Kuro got power from the Silver Clan coin!
And of course that Shiro came back to them after he got his real body back !

The pics in the end were nice too showing how everyone is still together now that they have no powers to segregate them into clans ♡

I will say that the ending was good, but not the best. The idea to destroy the Slates with the Damocles was not in my predictions and I loved the part where Awashima punched Munakata! xD

Love the ending cards!

However one thing I will complain is Weismann's ending. I understand that he went back to his original body but doesn't that mean he would be dead like the Gold King? As far as I understand, it was the Silver King's power that kept him alive and forever young. Now with the powers gone, should he not be old and crippling too?

Moral of the story is the green king shouldn't have been a power hungry asshole. If he hadn't been one everyone would have been able to keep their powers. I'm really gonna miss this anime.

it have been said many time in the series that green king intention isnt just keep the slate power for himself but giving it for the entire humanity so anyone could have a chance to become a king like him,none of clansman and king really want to giving up their power(except blue perhaps) but there will be people like Nagare as long as the power source still exists so destroying it probably the most suitable decision unless they want to clean this whole mess onceagain in near future

I think that because of his powers Weismann's body didn't get old, so when he lost them, he just started aging again. His body was kind of preserved so he couldn't change - get old or die for good. Another matter is how he get it back. Wasn't Adolf K. Weismann, possesed by Colorless King, on exploding airship in first season? I missed that part in the film when they were talking about Golg King getting Weismann's body back, but does that mean that his body regenerated even though Shiro had Silver King's power of immortality? Both bodies had it? I'm not sure if I got it right.

Finale was quite good, art was excellent troughout the series, animation not so much, soundtrack was awesome, characters likeable when they got screentime, but somewhat I can't say it was a good season. That'a a shame, because I enjoyed K a lot and I'm gonna miss it.

Let's see reasons I thought this was worse than S1:
-More fanservice
-More fujoshi/shipping pandering
-Reused footage
-My taste is not as lienent/causal like compared to 3 years ago when I watched S1.

Overall 4/10

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?


Since the colorless king switch with his body and the real Yashiro Isana, I could only guess that his soul went back to his original body(Edit: Now I distinctly remember in the movie that the gold king save the original body). And since the slate is no longer existing, I guess he retained the age he had when he became immortal and from there he would age up normally as a human. But well that' s what I think though.

Shiro never really fights, huh? Wait, it's more like Adolf.

I just can't stop listening to the soundtrack. I love the end pictures.
EP 1's fight scenes don't compare to any of this season's.

Honestly, this season left so many questions while some were just given a short description.

I still find this show good, so.. 7/10

Well i am happy Reishi gets to live..
P.s-- that punch from seri-chan was just perfect....

I'm always asking for a happy ending and I finally got it, unfortunately. But !! on the plus side it means there wont be anymore seasons. Also I didn't expect to like the green clan at all but I felt really bad for them in the end. Overall it was enjoyable but not something I would go back and watch again like s1.

I see a lot of questions in the comments:

- Strains still have their powers as they developed on their own.
- Shiro's body is not aged as the aging stopped. He will age from now on most likely.
- Munakata had quite some time before his sword would fall, it is not weird for him to be alive and well.
- Yes, there is a lot of re-used scenes - as were in S1.

As I have watched S1, the movie, read the mangas and some parts of the novels I am not entirely too disappointed by the series as a whole. The animation was beautiful but there was too much fan service this time around (maybe throw-back for the close friendship between red and blue king S1).

I wished they had made the last episode into two instead but I understand that there is more than just throwing in another episode (refer to Kekkai Sensen aka Blood Blockade Battlefront).

The only thing that has surprised me so far is not seeing Munakata weaken mentally even once to show remorse for killing his, previously, only equal. Though, the scene when he visited the bar is probably the closest to it.

Somehow it doesnt feel finished to me though judging from the ending, I cant see how it can continue with its premise. The clan wars could have been expanded way better than it should, I was expecting a royale similar to Fate.

The ONLY thing that makes me wonder if maybe they might still have their powers is the fact that when it showed Shiro at the end he was wearing a pendant that was glowing silver. Nobody knows the ramifications of the Green's releasing the slates powers like that. Also I have a somewhat farfetched theory that when Shiro's sword crashed into the slates instead of destroying each other maybe they somehow fused thus giving Shiro power over the slates much like the Gold King once had. The slates are no more but that doesn't mean their power is gone. It makes no sense to me that his old body wouldn't automatically age and die. He's still the immortal king and that should be impossible without the slates or unless something happened to change things. I'm hoping the powers still exist so we can get another season. If that's possible maybe he reset things so the Blue King will get his powers back. Yeah, it's a bit of a stretch but I can hope. I want a season 3.


I'm thinking something along the same lines. Shiro's immortality was a result of the slates so if they truly were destroyed then it would make sense that his original body would have aged and died just like nagata. So either his sword merged with the slates or he recreated the slates in his older body as it was aging. Why it still looks young...I can only guess that his power allowed him to de-age once the slates were recreated.

As for the series as a whole...it was crap. The fights were interesting but I felt like each episode just rehashed the same story all over again. Season 1 was clearly better but ultimately it ran into the same issues. The story needed to be fleshed out more.

So with the series wrapping up it's final episode I have to say I enjoyed it very much. For those of you that haven't watched it yet but are interested in doing so, you should know that K is part of a larger project so get the full experience watching the Missing Kings movie is a must. Even though the movie is a year older than Return of Kings it's not a fucking prequel but an insert for Return of Kings.
I recommend watching the movie after the first episode of Return of Kings. Then the second episode as it was probably intended. For whatever reason it was produced this way, the movie takes place after the first episode and before the second of Return of Kings. Explaining most of the gaps in the story between eps. 1 and 2. Also there are a few manga that go with the events of the entire K project.
"K - Countdown" is a must read it takes place after the events in the movie and contains the information and character viewpoints after Mikoto's death. (8 chapters)
"K - Stray Dog Story" - Kuro's story (5 chapters)
"K - Days of Blue" - Scepter 4's story (10 chapters)
"K - Memory of Red" Homra's story (15 chapters)
"K - The First" Shiro and the Gold Kings story (16 chapters)
