K represents many great ideas getting lost in an increasingly complicated plot. It is to the show’s credit though, that such convoluted strands are hinted at throughout and so do not come as an unwanted surprise. Many typical story elements are weaved together early on, including amnesia, mistaken identity, murder, prophecies, chosen ones, and magical cat girls. With so much going on it may sound crowded, but since the focus is on the most interesting element, a murder mystery that involves a seemingly natural schoolboy, it’s easy to ignore the political struggles of the 7 kings of the 7 clans that provide a canvas too big for the painting.

Yashiro (Namikawa/Regal) is a student at a large school situated on a single island. »
