King Records announced on Friday that Anime Expo in Los Angeles and Japan Expo in Paris will host the world premieres of the K: Missing Kings anime film — before the film opens in Japan.

The movie sequel of GoRA Project and GoHands' K television anime will have voice actor Masakazu Morita as the new character named Yukari Mishakuji. It will open in Japan on July 12. Anime Expo will run from July 3 to July 6, while Japan Expo will run from July 2 to July 6.

The band angela is performing the theme song "Different colors." The song's CD single will go sale on July 12, the same day as the film's opening in Japan. A drama CD of the spinoff manga Gakuen K will go on sale with angela's "This is Love" and "Shunkashūtō" (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter) songs on July 9.

The official website for the film outlined the story:

[Note: Highlight the text below for the story, which contains spoilers for the end of the television series]

The “Academy Island Incident” in which all four “kings” cross paths... Since then, Silver Clansmen Kuroh Yatogami and Neko have been searching for their master, Shiro. Without finding any clues to Shiro's whereabouts, the two became disheartened. However, one day, they see HOMRA members Rikio Kamamoto and Anna Kushina being chased by someone.

The television anime premiered in 2012, and Viz Media streamed it in North America as it aired. An English dub streamed on Viz's Neon Alley service. Viz has released the series on Blu-ray and DVD.

A new countdown website will launch on Friday.
