VIZ Media’s Announcements at Anime Central 2013

VIZ Media announced during the company’s Anime Central 2013 panel that it has acquired the rights to the Accel World mini shorts, and will be dubbing the shorts with the same cast that was used for the television series.

The company also announced that it has become the master licensee for the K anime series. The rights include domestic home video, television rights, online rights and distribution, and merchandising.

The story of K is described as:

K 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 supernatural 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 HOMRA, 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?
