K: Missing Kings
Produced By: GoHands
Directed By: Shingo Suzuki
(Disclaimer: There will be some spoilers in this post.)
First of all, if you haven’t watched the first season of the series, do not watch the movie. K: Missing Kings doesn’t recap or summarize what has happened so far. This movie is a continuation to the anime series, and also provides some possible information about the upcoming new series.
K: Missing Kings takes place a couple of months after the School Island Incident in the anime series. The Silver Clansman, Kuroh Yatogami and Neko are in search of their master, Shiro, who disappeared after the incident. HOMRA has “disbanded” after their Red King, Mikoto Suoh died, and Scepter 4 has been growing and expanding. A new threat rises when the Green Clan, JUNGLE, has plans to kidnap Anna Kushina. Kuroh and Neko put their search on hold in order to save her with the help of some members in Scepter 4 and HOMRA.
In this movie, there are minimal action sequences. (In fact, I think the trailer shows you all the action there is in the movie.) My favorite part is when Anna is reborn into the Red King, and she creates the Sword of Damocles for the Red Clan, HOMRA.
Yet, by the end of the movie, nothing seems to be resolved. We are left with more unanswered questions. We still don’t know where Shiro is hiding (despite him making an appearance with the Gold King in the end) or whether Shiro will reunite with his clansman. In addition, we do not know what JUNGLE’s intentions are for kidnapping Anna.
I think the sole purpose of this film is to find the new Red King, which is Anna, and to reveal the new threat against the rest of the kings, which I assume to be the Green Clan, JUNGLE. (I think new season of K tackles the problem of JUNGLE.)
