i guess the merchandises for this sold very well, since the disc sales for the last season is average at best, and since this is an original anime there is no source material sales boost too

The second season was a disappointment, but I'll still keep an eye on this. Do we know if it's third season or a movie?
5 main aspects I base my ratings on:
1. Did DramaEnthusiast make a thread about it?
2. Is it better than Breaking Bad?
3. Did MellowJello recommend the shit out of it?
4. Has it caused a (very entertaining) shitstorm on MAL?
5. Is it actually good?

Scratch the fifth point, it's not very relevant...

More K related stuff..honestly idk how I feel about this. Thought the second season was mediocre but if it has the quality of the movie, then I might be interested.

It only announced "new animation", so not even sure if it's third season or movie (type/format still not announced yet, either, as mentioned on news post), but from the image and the title, I'm guessing it's side stories of the kings.

O.o interesting news honestly wasnt expecting it after that drop of sales with the last season but it seems like its still worth it then perhaps they get the money somewhere else and the bd-dvd doesnt matter for them much. anyway lookin forward to and also iam kinda expecting it to be a movie^^

I'm hoping this will be more like the side material, considering its format! The manga also uses vignettes, and I've always considered it way better than any of the animations.

Well, I'll pick it up. The second season wasn't really bad or good, and it's not like the first season was particularly amazing either. The characters did grow on me though.

Wonder what it's gonna be about. Wanted to think that it'd be sort of a backstory on the kings, but we already know, like, most of the king's backstory in the picture. Maybe the colorless king? Maybe there'll be a new one revealed? I know Kuro always went on and on about Ichigen but he's sorta dead lol

Haven't watch season 2 yet, but more background information for the kings would be great. They're just so cool, I wanna know what made them so cool.

Oh wow! Never expected there will be anything related to K after the sequel, Return of Kings, came out.

Mixed feelings about this. I find myself in between honestly speaking, I liked the first season and the following movie but I was very disappointed with how the sequel turned out. I was confident that that was the end of the franchise, but more stuff coming up does make me excited a little. I'm not giving up hope, hope this might be a string of OVA's, all the more better if its a TV series or some kind of spin-off, but I hope this turns out good.

Nice. Return of Kings was a bit disappointing, but I enjoyed the first season and actually really liked the movie. I always thought the series needed more world-building and hopefully this will address that.

Yesssss!!! I absolutely love K, so it's thrilling news for me >w<
Loved Return of Kings, so I'm hyped to see what kind of format this series will take.

And I need more CustomiZ in K, it's like jelly and peanutbutter on toast -w-

Hmm... Season 2 definitely dropped a lot in quality and seemed like it ended so this is surprising! A background story on all the kings as would make sense, according to the title of this new anime

I'm a big fan of the K franchise so I'm really looking forward to this~ I hope it'll be good!

But that poster though.... whether or not this is gonna be a backstory of the 7 original kings and their clans, I'm still curious (and confused) as to why they decided to have Weismann in there while looking like Yashiro and not in his original body. o__o

I wasn't expecting any more K stuff after the 2nd season, especially with how it ended, so this is surprising news. I guess I'll check it out.

Where did the money for this come from...?

But eh, okay. This will probably a side story (or alternate reality) where all of them are high school students... More Mikoto is always welcome~

That's somehow good news but the key visuals confuses me- I don't know if it's a prequel (Mikoto is alive) or a sequel (Silver King's look). Nevertheless I'm glad there's more K,hopefully it won't disappoint like the last time.

I wouldn't call it "milking". That sounds too negative. Should only be used for crap like Naruto and stuff like that (fighting shounen that run endlessly) or other crappy shows.

Yeah technically it still is milking but with good quality I don't have a problem. Season 2 still was good. It is amazing how they can make an entertaining show just with good music, action and cool chars and visuals. (Yes plot was not that much and I usually care about story/plot and still loved K.)

If they made more of Psycho Pass (where the 2nd season was a lot worse) I'd call it milking. Or some shoujo romance where they after 24 episodes not even kiss ... getting milked (cause the manga is running endlessly).

But this news is goodl K and Natsume Yuujinchou (which got a lot of seasons and is a great anime) - good news.

This makes me very happy because I was hoping that we would get another series that would develop and explain the backgrounds of the kings

i definitely expected another season due to the massive and continuous dominance it had in sales. not a surprise in the least.

however the biggest disappointment is that lost small world is getting a freaking play. i can only hope that it will eventually get animated, maybe an ova bundle or something. really bad that it's getting dismissed like that. i was never interested in misaki and fushi but that manga really got me into it and really helped me see the (extreme) dark side to fushi.

im guessing its going to be a prequel-ish type of thing were it shows each kings backstory, like when they first get powers and how they develop into what they are. im really interested in the red king, gold king (never explained his power), green king & silver king. fuvk im interested in ALL of them.

While the first season left tonnes open about the universe and everything, I think the second did a very good job of tying things up. So if this is a continuation I won't be happy. Side stories could be good, but this is obviously just milking and I'm not even sure I will watch this.
