Viz describes the story:
K is set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we're familiar with and follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a supernatural war between seven kings. Yashiro Isana, also known as Shiro, is wanted for a crime he has no recollection of committing. He finds himself being hunted by the groups HOMRA, led by Mikoto Suoh, “The Red King,” and SCEPTER 4, led by Reisi Munakata, “The Blue King.” While on the run, another young man named Kuroh Yatogami helps him. Will this fated encounter change Shiro's life forever?
The anime premiered last October with Shingo Suzuki (Mardock Scramble) as the director and character designer. Viz Media streamed the anime in North America as it aired in Japan.
The television series is spawning a film sequel next year.
