By the way, if you shine a white light through a transparent piece of glass, the resulting beam of light would be... white.

To be honest, the first time Kuroh popped up, I thought he was a member of Blue since he was glowing blue, but I think that's just the way the studio animated things.

It's not this site, thankfully, but most anime fans who watch this are all like, 'OH GOD MORE YAOI VIBES'...

*coughs* Check out the early pages, the anti-BL brigade was out in full force, although it's true that some other places (like tumblr) have gleefully latched onto all the (sub?)text and run with it.

The whereabouts (or body) of the current colourless king is still unknown, but it also seems clear that his power, which changes with each incarnation, is to swap his consciousness with that of others.
This is exactly what I got out of it also if I put together all the episodes since the end of episode 7 and further.

Perhaps they want some mystery around who the other kings are, so they call one king "Colorless" instead of white or black. If he was represented by black, the mystery king would be white, and if he was represented by black, it would be black. Keep in mind that they also use white/black symbolism to represent Kuro and Shiro as a kind of hint. We keep the mystery because we don't know if Kuro himself is the black king or if he served the black king, or if Shiro is the white king or the silver king.

Considering that Kuro served the former colorless king (and from what I've read of Stray Dog Story I don't see any reason to disbelieve that claim) I'm pretty sure he's not the black king, the story is just playing up the symbolism of their nicknames.

I know this show isn't doing too good in Japan...though I have my fingers crossed for a second season...if only to answer all of the questions that this season asked, especially in regards to all of the Kings. Interesting that the Green group seems to be the only ones not involved in things.
Really? From what I've heard, sales are doing pretty well in Japan... Especially for side materials. For the DVDs, they are about average, but sales don't usually start picking up until everything's aired.

Spoiler for summary:
Just fyi, all summaries are translated on the facebook page.

They added glossary section on the website. It would be much appreciated if someone translated it. At least some interesting things.

Yeah, from what I've been reading on GoRA's twitter, it seems like the merchandise and side novels are selling out like hot dogs.

Nah, there's nothing to discuss, summary doesn't say anything that wasn't obvious from the preview.

Oh. My bad then.

Good, maybe since it's a success, we'll get a second season? *keeps fingers crossed

Off topic: Is the Side Story with Kuroh translated yet?

The first chapter of Stray Dog Story is out and I saw someone translate a snippet from the novel that covers what the trio was doing when they were hiding from everyone (I think Defade did that one?).

Side:RED especially. It was like, sold out everywhere and requires emergency reprint. I almost lost my preorder too.
