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...

The Blue King Reisi Munakata, the leader of the Blue Clan "Scepter 4," held great responsibilities on his back. The tower that Gold King Daikaku Kokujōji 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 clansmen 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. The Green King Nagare Hisui once again...

With "jungle" once again jumping back into action, the fates of the various Kings are brought together.

The official Twitter account for the K anime project announced in October 2014 that production on a sequel to the franchise has been green-lit for 2015. The announcement had featured an image with the character Yashiro.

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 released the series on Blu-ray Disc and DVD. The anime has also inspired multiple manga adaptations and spinoffs.

Anime Expo in L.A. and Japan Expo in Paris hosted the world premieres of K: Missing Kings in July before it opened in Japan later that month. Eleven Arts also screened the film in Canada in September.
