K Project


Yashiro Isana has lived a relatively ordinary, simple life. He lives in the technology-advanced Shizume City and attends Ashinaka High School, a notable high school that is located on an island just outside the areas. Yashiro is friendly with everyone. Nothing ever seems wrong about him, except perhaps his habit of forgetting where his school-issued 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.

K: Missing Kings


In the aftermath of the loss of the Silver and Red Kings, Kuroh and Neko continues to look for Shiro, whom they believe is still alive. Meanwhile, HOMRA members have dispersed, leaving Yata and Rikio to take care of what's left along with Anna, whose powers became unstable. As the Green Clan makes their appearance and kidnaps Anna, the remaining members of Silver and Red Clans unite to save her and to hopefully discover the outcome of having lost their Missing Kings.

K: Returns of Kings 


In modern Japan there are seven "Kings" who share power with their fellow clansmen. The Blue King Reishi 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 Clan members 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. With "Jungle" once again jumping back into action, the fates of the various Kings are brought together.

Each sword have their very own unique design and are distinguished from each other by the Aura that pulsates around them.

When the swords starts to crumble & decay, it’s considered dangerous and is a sign of the owner of being losing control over his/her power. The sword shows the truest image of its KING’s condition.

Below are the type of KINGS’ Sword of Damocles:-

Mainly white & silvery in color
A long blade & grip has a curving, long segment of it that curvers from left side to just a bit farther than the middle of the blade on the right side. 
Orbs representing all the seven KINGly Colors (The Silver orb is in the centre of the cross guard, and the Gold orb settles in the middle of the blade directly below the Silver orb. On the curved sides of the cross guard are the Red (right side) and Blue (left side) orbs. On the right, above the red orb, is the Colourless orb set on a tiny curving. The top of the handle contains the Green orb, and near the tip of the sword is the orb of the Grey King)

A circular cross guard has a green orb in the centre, with a rather geometric guard expanding from a barred, diamond-shaped structure that slims down towards the end. A pendulum also swings from a pivot within the cross guard. Its blade is very irregular, with its first half protruding more out of the right side and the bottom half alternating to the left side.

A slim blade with the handle curving downwards, and appears to a very misty in its properties. Much of its handle features elaborate curvature, and the centre's orb glows bright white. Befitting of its King, the sword strongly resembles a cross. It forms out of the Grey King's mist, and in natural lighting, the mist appears in red, orange, yellow green, blue, and violet.
