Animax Asia are providing this English language trailer for K. The series starts on the 5th on TBS and Animax. K is directed by Shingo Suzuki or Mardock Scramble and Makoto Furuta is chief animation director. The show is from the Starchild label, the same people who did Bodacious Space Pirates and Toradora!
