Manga series adapts film that Viz Media will release on home video

Square Enix's preview website for the September issue of its Monthly G Fantasy magazine is listing that Haruto Shiota will end the K: Missing Kings manga in the issue, which will ship on August 18.

Shiota launched the manga with story composition by GoRA's Hideyuki Furuhashi in the May issue on April 18. The manga adapts the film of the same name. The official website for the film outlined the story (the below story description contains spoilers for the end of the first 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.

Viz Media has licensed the film for a North American release, after Eleven Arts screened the film in July 2014.

The first 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 and DVD. Viz has also licensed the second season, K: Return of Kings, which is slated to premiere in Japan in October.
