Nothing ever seems wrong about him, except perhaps his habit of forgetting where his school's PDA is.However, nothing normal has been happening since the recent murder of Tatara Totsuka, prominent member of the infamous HOMRA. No one knows who exactly killed him but the man responsible bears an uncanny, identical appearance to Yashiro. Seeking vengeance, the Red Clansmen of HOMRA set out to get Yashiro and kill him.Everyone suspects that Yashiro is the murderer. But whether the guilt is his is not clear.
-Set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we're familiar with, K follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings.
Critical Review:K-Project is amazing in so many ways. The artwork and animation of it surpasses so many other animes. I started to watch it because some people suggested me to watch it because they said it was awesome. I was considering it and saw it had only 13 episodes so I started to watch it. When I started to watch it, I immediately noticed the great animation and how beautiful the technology-advanced Shizume City and Ashinaka High School is made. After seeing it I wanted to go there myself!
This anime made me laugh so many times because of the clumsy Yashiro, and his scenarios with Kuroh and Neko. And not to mention how the elements of comedy, science-fiction, and mystery are combined. K contains supernatural characters and also presents us with an interesting dynamic between the Blue and Red Kings - they fight on opposing sides, but seem to be more than just simply enemies. In the first few episodes, not very much is explained, and it could confuse you some times. But they leave many questions unanswered to make you keep coming back for more.
The anime is awesome, has great characters, great sound and an awesome animation. It really caused me to shed tears, especially at the ending. It's a short anime so you could go very fast through it. But sometimes it felt like there were small gaps and not everything was explained very very good. And I actually taught that they could've made the anime a little bit taller.
I would give the animation 10/10, as I said before the animation is really great. I'd give the sound a 8.5/10. It has fantastic music and great tracks and I'd give the characters a 9/10. The characters make you laugh, surprise and cry at the same time. They are very high developed in a psychological way. Furthermore they're just simplyare awesome and I really love their personalities.
Overall I'd give it a 8.7 ^x^ I definitely recommend you to watch it if you haven't watched it yet!
