Alternate History Psychic Action Anime ‘K’ Premieres Tonight On Neon Alley

It’s boys on the run from their despotic rulers in the 13-episode series hitting Neon Alley, the web and PS3-based streaming service tonight.

Debuting tonight on both Hulu Plus and Neon Alley, “K”:

From the official synopsis:

…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 series, which will be simulcast in Japan, is from some of the creators of “Bodacious Space Pirates” and “Listen to Me, Girls. I Am Your Father!” so you know you’re not in for an espcially serious or deep piece of drama. Neon Alley’s broadcast will be in Japanese with English subtitles, the latest same-day stream from the ViZ’s anime and movie streaming service. Recently, they announced that the subscription-based service, which debuted on the PS3, would be coming to the web as well.

The series airs 10 PM PST/ 1 AM EST.
