As previously reported, ANIMAX Asia is set to premiere the slice-of-life comedy anime Kin-iro Mosaic this October, as well as sequels to Little Busters and I Don’t Have Many Friends.
The anime channel has announced that they will air K: Return of Kings, which is the second season of the popular 2012 anime series K.
In modern Japan there are seven “Kings” who share power with their fellow clansmen. The Blue King Reishi Munakata, the leader of the Blue Clan “Scepter 4,” held great responsibilities on his back. The tower that Gold King Daikaku Kokujoji supervised called the “Dresden Slate” was still on his mind, and he felt a great burden by killing the previous Red King, Mikoto Suoh.
On the other hand, the former Red Clan “HOMRA” clansman Anna Kushina experienced the attacks from the Green Clan “Jungle” and awakened as the next Red King. By doing this, she bound her comrades through a strong bond once again.
Finally, White Clan members Neko and Kuroh believe that the White King Yashiro is still alive, and seek his whereabouts. However, it was not just them searching for the White King. With “Jungle” once again jumping back into action, the fates of the various Kings are brought together. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)
K: Return of Kings is the second anime adaptation of the popular anime series in 2012, which was written by GoRA and directed by Shingo Suzuki. The anime follows the story of K: Missing Kings, which was screened in Japanese theaters in July last year.
