Okay so it looks like exactly what I thought it would be. Well... one of my guesses.

Seven movies based on... seven stories. Based on the prequel novels/manga, and then a new story.
(Edit: Apparently they're not clear on if it's seven movies or one movie but like... they can't cram all of that into one movie. Unless they mash all those stories into one and do it chronologically instead of focusing on one character/relationship at a time, like the novels did).

LOST SMALL WORLD MOVIE YESSSS<3<3<3



.. . . . . . . . . . . . . wait, one of those is Idol K.

IDOL K <3<3<3<3

Okay, so this fixes everything, because these stories are essential to the whole story, but they haven't been included in the anime until now, so like... people who just watch the anime basically don't get to know these characters. But now... unless Viz takes forever to release them again...

They also announced a Missing Kings stage play.

I thought it was a movie coming out next year?


Would care more if it was about Shiro/Kuroh/Neko. And maybe Reishi/Fushimi.

Anyone but the motherfuckin' Reds....'TATSUKA/MIKOTO THE BESTEST BROS EVAAAAAHHHHHHHH' though Anna and Izumo are fine. Anna and the Green Clan brat can be friends.




They should just do another season of this though since it sounds like HandShakers was horrible. Just make it the Idol K stuff.


Finally ordered my copy of Missing Kings

Lost Small World is really good though. It has some definite ReiSaru aspects. The focus is SaruMi, but the ReiSaru part is compelling - it has to be, to make his leaving HOMRA make sense.

R:B is also good.

. . . . . . . . I sort of hope they do fuse the stories into one instead of doing them separately, because like... the unfolding drama of the whole saga from Mikoto awakening through the murder in the beginning of season one... that would be cool. Though it is pretty much a foregone conclusion for people who have seen any of the rest of it (e.g. that Saruhiko leaves HOMRA, that Tatara dies, etc.)

But they're probably making it for people who have already seen Return of Kings. Which...... I hope they don't. I hope they make it so you can watch this before Return of Kings, because.... you need to. Return of Kings is just a mess if you haven't read these parts first.

. . . . . . . . . . . . I hope they do give enough time to each story.
I also kind of worry because these are sort of low on action. The character-focused (i.e. fujoshi) fanbase for this in Japan is pretty strong, but like, outside of Japan, out of all, like, 12 people that even care, maybe 2 are in it for that, and the rest are in it for the fighting. These stories are all character.

They'll have to add in more for the Green Clan...since we don't really know a lot about them other than Iwafune was a King at one point and took Hisui in...and that Yukari served under Ichigen at one point.


I remember reading some of the Silver/Black novel years ago...it was just mostly during the first season since Team Silver was on the run from everyone.

They're adapting Side: Green, which has their backstories, I think. It goes from when Yukari was young, I think before Ichigen found Kuroh.

Side: Black and White takes place between episodes 7 and 8 of season 1, and it has Kuroh, Neko, and Shiro's backstories. Though, of course, Shiro's is from Kokujouji's POV, since he still didn't have his memories at that point, and Neko's has a lot of holes in it that Nagare's info about her in season 2 fills in. The images at the end, when they're talking about that, are right out of that novel's illustrations.

. . . . . . . . . . . Lost Small World is just a really good book, though. It's just really solid quality. The manga is okay. I honestly can't say about the stage play, because I haven't seen enough of it (though I've heard Aramaki is amazing in it).

. . . . . I wonder who will play Niki in the anime. . . . . . . . ?

edit: apparently the stage actor they announced for Yukari played Souza Samonji in Touken Ranbu stage plays. So........... <3

I haven't seen the cast list, but the guy who was Kuroh in one of the previous plays is Izuminokami in the Touken Ranbu musicals....



I think the only movies(if it's going to be different movies) I'd be interested in is:

Green's story

Kokujouji's

Idol K

And whatever the new story is. I'd read Lost Small World but I forgot the name of the site that had the K translations now...
