VIZ Acquires K: Seven Stories
VIZ Media expands its catalog for the K anime franchise with the acquisition of K: Seven Stories.
The agreement forged with Japan-based King Records covers the digital streaming, EST, home video and merchandising rights to K: Seven Stories. Based on the hit anime property from Studio GoHands and GoRA Project, K: Seven Stories is a collection of six original animated stories and spinoff shorts featuring both new and returning characters from the visually stunning k-project universe.
The original K anime series followed the story of Yashiro “Shiro” Isana, a teen wanted for a crime he has no recollection of committing. He finds himself being hunted by the group HOMRA, led by Mikoto Suoh, the Red King. With help from a young man named Kuroh Yatogami and a mysterious girl who only refers to herself as Neko, Shiro tries to prove his innocence, only to discover a shocking truth that would change his life forever. The series later spawned a feature-length movie K: Missing Kings, followed by a second season, K: Return of Kings.
VIZ Media holds the North American digital streaming, EST, home video and merchandising rights to Seasons 1 and 2 of the K anime series as well as the K: Missing Kings feature film. These home media releases are available now in DVD and Blu-ray formats.
