Blushing bishie hug. Bet you didn’t see that coming from the new shounen sci-fi action anime, K
But I guess the power of fujoshi dollar is too strong to ignore… The white-haired bishie, Isana Yashiro is in the arms of this guy, Yatogami Kuroh.
Yep, in this scene. Seiyuu cast-wise, it’s Ono Daisuke x Namikawa Daisuke.
Broadcast date: 4 October 2012
Update 2013: Season 2 is announced! :D

Summary (from wikipedia/ANN):
Ashinaka High School is known for its unique setting: the entire campus is built on an island. Isana Yashiro, aka Shiro, is having lunch with a cat on one of the school rooftops. After his lunch break, Shiro goes on an errand for his classmate Kukuri to prepare for their upcoming school festival, only to be chased by some intimidating-looking men.
K is a 2012 anime series animated by the studio GoHands and directed by Suzuki Shingo, who also serves as character designer for the series. It began airing on MBS, TBS, and CBC in Japan on October 4, 2012. Animax Asia will also broadcast at the same time. A manga prequel called K: Memory of Red, drawn by Kuroe Yui has been serialized in Kodansha’s Aria since May 28, 2012. The anime has been licensed by Viz Media in North America, who will also stream the series on VizAnime video site.
For the seiyuu fangirls, this anime is a must-watch as it features a dream cast of the most popular and hottest seiyuus now, including Fukuyama Jun, Tsuda Kenjiro, Miyano Mamoru, Sakurai Takahiro, Sugita Tomokazu, Nakamura Yuuichi, etc.
A plethora of bishie types to suit your tastes.
Ah I see you noticed it too. Yes, that’s a Heiwajima Shizuo lookalike right there.
And don’t forget the megane bishie clad in uniform for additional moe-points. (and don’t forget that sword too)
And from what I saw from the first episode, the animation quality and fluid fighting sequences are also fantastic. Looks even more impressive than the anime’s demo reels I’ve seen earlier.
Standard moon behind sword user pose but who cares. It looks oh so delicious!
Check out the fireworks between these 2 bishies!
Anyway it’s too early to tell if the plot would be just as impressive from what we see from the first episode but it definitely has potential. It seems that ditsy, white-haired bishie has a hidden/dual evil personality and everyone is after him for certain horrible deeds he committed, that which he has no memory of.
I only listed the character moe-points for BL fangirls, but of course there are other elements that should attract the male fans too, like a cute goth-loli with mind-reading powers, and sexy (nude and well-endowed) cat-girl, etc.
Can’t remember what these are. Some kind of headquarters of the reigning/governing kings?
