The English dubbed version of the Anime Series "K" Debuts Tonight on Neon Alley.
From VIZ Media: “[The story of] K is set in a world where history has taken a slightly different course from the one we’re familiar with and follows the story of a young boy whose life is caught in a psychic war between seven kings. Yashiro Isana, also known as Shiro, is wanted for a crime he has no recollection of committing. He finds himself being hunted by the groups Homura, led by Mikoto Suoh, “The Red King,” and Scepter 4, led by Reisi Munakata, “The Blue King.” While on the run, another young man named Kuroh Yatogami helps him. Will this fated encounter change Shiro’s life forever?”
The English voiceover edition of K debuts tonight (July 12, 2013) on VIZ’s English dubbed streaming anime service, Neon Alley, at 10:00pm PST (1:00am EST). If you miss the debut, repeats of K will appear on Neon Alley next week, check the viewing schedule for details. Previously, Neon Alley was available through the online components of both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game consoles. To help service even more viewers, VIZ has made Neon Alley’s 24/7 anime streaming service available to Mac and PC users as well. All you need is a compatible browser such as Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, or Safari with Silverlight installed. We tried the service out via our Mac computer running the Chrome browser and found that a simple install of Silverlight got the Neon Alley service up and running in just a few minutes. Take note that unlike other services, Neon Alley is not on demand, but is a streaming service that continually shows a run of English dubbed anime shows similar to how traditional as well as cable and satellite television shows their content.
Brian Ige, Vice President, Animation of VIZ says, “K was developed by GoHands, the studio that created the cyberpunk anime film series, Mardock Scramble, and enigmatic writers’ collective GoRA Project. The highly detailed look of K’s production and its intriguing story will definitely give this new series a strong following. Don’t miss the exciting first episode!”
If you’re a fan of K already but have only seen it with its original Japanese dialog, don’t miss it presented in this newly produced English version. If you haven’t had the pleasure of catching this series yet, this is the perfect time to get hooked.
