In modern Japan, where history has strangely overlapped with reality. There, seven “Kings” with great superpowers existed. Along with their clansman to whom they shared their own power with, the kings each formed clans. Order bound by blue, red flames that cause chaos, irregularities that shine in white, and reforms branched off into green. The Kings, each with their own abilities, now…

With “JUNGLE” once again jumping back into action, the fates of the various Kings are brought together.

K Return of Kings


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.

Overall Rate: 6/10
