I just saw the K-project movie Missing Kings (warning: me ranting about anime, and probably some spoilers)
and I’m sitting here like: why? There was so much potential and you did nothing with it!
The main problem is for me is probably that K has so many interesting characters that they have done so little with. I need backstories and character development. I don’t need Yata to be depressed for ten seconds of the movie and for it him to miraculously be happy again after saving Anna. Just to give an example. It feels like they tried to cram so much into one movie that they couldn’t fit more than half of the movie into the actual movie.
The pacing seems completely off and it honestly feels like they’ve put more effort into the scenery than the characters themselves dealing with what happened. A year has passed and you’re only going to acknowledge that by having one character mention it in a conversation in the beginning of the movie?
I was hoping for more depth into Homra after Mikoto’s death. How did Kusanagi know Anna was the new king? Why did they all leave if they still had their powers?! I need Yata and Fushimi acknowledging the fact that Yata basically told him he was the only one left to turn to?
I wanted Neko and Kuro to actually be shown looking for Shiro. Also why couldn’t they use their king’s powers? Or why didn’t they use them if they could? None of this makes sense!
Why is the green king looking to kill the new red king? Why is Anna a threat to him? We have literally never heard of this dude, but oh his clansmen can walk through walls????!!!! I think that’s a pretty specific thing that could’ve been mentioned sometime earlier?
And I want Anna and Munakata interacting, because who else can she turn to with her new abilities?
Also: who ends a movie like that????
