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, Reisi 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. K: Return of Kings tells the struggle of the remaining clans against the Green King’s formidable forces as one final king appears. – My Anime List
Based on 12 review scores:
In the end, the reason to watch ‘K-Return of Kings’ is that it is a fantastic final act to the ‘K-Project’ story. It gives all of its players just enough screen time to cater to everyone and ends the story of its setting very definitively if somewhat clumsily.
I have nothing but thanks to GoHands studio for giving such a wonderful second season with a great ending – even if nothing else ever comes out.
For The Future Of The Team
As a whole, the ending of the series is really, really satisfying. I expected cliffhangers galore and while the overall message of the series is not that impactful – the emotion is. For those who have been with the series from the get-go, the series is beautifully wrapped up.
Anime News Network
In short, the first three episodes of Return of Kings don’t dazzle but should not disappoint anyone who has been a fan of the franchise so far.
Anime News Network
Overall, I enjoyed the first season more, because the story was constructed using a more mysterious and interesting mechanic. This second season I’m reviewing here, ties things up very nicely and provides closure to some unresolved plot lines from before.
The Outer Haven
K: Return of Kings put a nice bow around the entire package and I still recommend it to anyone who wants a good series to get into. It has a great cast of likable, relatable characters, some pretty good story development, some shocking moments that you may not have seen coming, and really great action. Not to mention the artwork rivals that of ufotable and anyone who has watched Fate/Zero or God Eater knows how good ufotable is. GoHands did an amazing job here.
My Anime List
For about 8 episodes K: Return of Kings brings us an endless “information dump”. The blank paper is filled, they fill it with many chit-chat and useless scenes and they just did the same mistakes once again. As the plot drive slowly, K Return of Kings really just wasting the time it has. The story can be described as ‘disoriented’ and didn’t have a clear direction, it just floating in the air with unclear reasons.
The worst part of this season was anything involving a female character. Every time a female character appears the camera is placed looking directly up her skirt. As you all know I have nothing against fanservice, but this was totally out of place, dispensed with any illusion of respect towards the characters (mainly Neko and the Blue lieutenant, thank God they at least left the little girl out of it), and was a failure as fanservice anyway since who wants to see that? This is a show about a bunch of gay guys. Why are you showing us women’s underwear? Even assuming viewers are interested in naked women, it was more gross than titillating.
As a conclusion, for fujoshi’s or fudanshi’s eyes only. No one will come for the story. In some sense quite alike with the Kancolle or the will-be-happening Touken anime, but way better looking.
This is the second season of K project titled K: Return of Kings. I recommend you watch K: Missing King movie before watching it. K is supposed to be an action/supernatural anime and it is. Unfortunately though there wasn’t any valid reason for the action. I still have no idea what they are fighting about… its supposedly power but it wasn’t explained very well they did try to explain it in K: Return of Kings but it felt like they were simply trying to extend the series. The action is pretty good I must give them that. Also the animation and art are stunning. I cant help but feel like its just a fan service anime… and it kinda is. I just have too many conflicted feelings about this series. Its not good nor is it bad. You can tell that the creates are trying to make it interesting. There is also the fact that it isn’t your typical shounen where no one dies which gives the series a + point. Never the less the anime is average overall. You’re not missing anything if you don’t watch it.
