The fight continued between Mikoto and Munakata. Kuroh managed to evacuate all the members of Homra and Sceptre 4, and finished his fight with Yata and Fushimi. He then pledged his loyalty to a new king, Shiro the Silver King. The two found Kukuri and tricked the Colorless King in possessing Shiro. He trapped the Colorless King inside of him and ordered Kuroh to evacuate Kukuri. He interferred with Mikoto and Munakata’s fight and ordered the Red King to kill him. Mikoto complied and Shiro shattered along with his sword. Munakata killed Mikoto before his Sword of Damocles hit the land. Then, the Homra did their chant in honor of Mikoto as their red marks rise up in the air. A black dog with a sword and a cat with an umbrella run off in the background.
Mikoto Suoh died. Isana Yashiro died (?). Everyone else lives. The END.
Well, what can I say? It’s a sad ending. Though I predicted that someone will die, I didn’t think that BOTH of them will die.
Just like Mr. Kusanagi said, Mikoto was the best king they could have asked for. Someone who would put his life on the line for his subordinates that was best exemplified by him avenging Tatara Totsuka’s death. He knew what will happen. He knew that he will die fighting another king and that his Sword of Damocles would fall and create another Kagutsu Crater incident.
Munakata wanted to save Mikoto from what he was planning to do. He’s not only doing this as a Blue King and as the leader of Sceptre 4 but also as Mikoto’s friend. He knew that Mikoto’s Sword of Damocles will kill the Red King so he wanted to prevent that. However, Mikoto’s one step ahead of him. He wanted Munakata to kill him before the Sword hits the land. And so he did.
It’s really sad that the Homra guys lost their king. I almost cried hearing them chant their “No Blood! No Bone! No Ash!”. They found a place to belong to in Homra. They found someone worthy of their loyalty. Especially Yata, Kusanagi and Anna. Well, all of them. Even Fushimi, who the Red King can’t bring himself to be bothered by his betrayal. Now, I don’t know what will happen to them but I’m sure Homra will still be there.
While the Reds are grieving, Sceptre 4 is rejoicing for their King’s return especially Awashima, who is revealed to have “something” about Munakata (well, isn’t it obvious). Anyway…
As predicted, Shiro sacrificed himself to stop the colorless king. He tricked him to go inside of him and trapped him there. He get himself killed by Mikoto, knowing that only a king can kill a king. I thought Kuroh’s sword, Kotowari, can kill a king as well? Yes it can. However, Shiro also wanted Mikoto to get his revenge for his fallen clansman.
He was the immortal king. As much as I want him to be alive, I doubt he is. As Munakata said in episode 9, “as mighty as he might be, he certainly cannot be immortal (for the Gold King)…That also goes for the Silver King.” We also saw his sword shattered just like Mikoto’s so… But wait! We saw his sword again so maybe, he transferred his soul to his real body? I really hope so.
I want the three of them to be together again! Neko and Kuroh lost their King as well. No, they also lost a friend. However, they will continue to live. For their King. For Shiro.
Did you see the black dog with Katana and White cat with the umbrella? I wonder where they’ll be going? To their King maybe. ( I still have the tiniest hope up in here)
All in all it was a good and sad ending. The things the producers wanted to accomplish was neatly done. And by the way…
According to 13th episode, GoRA Project and GoHands’ sci-fi-action anime series “K” will be getting a second season.
YAY! Wonder what will they cover this time? K, let’s meet again.
