We know that the Green Clan exists, because when Fushimi was in the Blue HQ investigating how HOMRA has hacked the city's system with the video of Totsuka's murder, he said somenthing like "I hope the Greens doesn't notice us". I think it was also showed in ep.3.
What you say is interesting. Now I'm thinking this: the 6 of 7 groups are showed/mentioned except one. And Munakata and Awashima are worried about the strenght of Mikoto's powers and they fear that his Sword of Damocles fall, repeating the case of the Kogutsu crater again. What if the king that hasn't yet been mentioned was the one whose power was so great that his Sword of Damocles fell and created that crater, so he and his clan disappeared?

Gosh, I missed so many details. Nice eyes, Lomanghova.
The other clan still exist. The previous Green King was shown in the K Side:Blue novel. I really hope somebody will translate the novels, from the synopsis alone it expands the world a lot. Even Mikoto's predecessor is introduced there.
The 2nd King, the Golden King's name is Daikaku Kokujyoji according to the official site. He's pretty much the ruler of Japan, that's why Reisi called him "Gozen" (His Excellency) in episode 8. This series needs a second season, the world is so large and interesting to explore. Although, I hope if there is a second season, it will focus on the Kings. As much as I enjoy the series with Shiro as the MC, I'm even more interested in the Kings and their history.

@Koshi_Ibana: Sorry if I'm misunderstanding your last post but after reading it, it seemed to me that you thought we were saying that the Green cland had disappeared. Oh no, we were talking about a completely different clan!
phio_chan had listened all the clans and kings according to their power/importance:
And with this, we have 6 clans of 7: Silver, Gold, Red, Blue, Green and Colorless. But there's a colour left, not mentioned or showed yet both in the anime or in the little summaries of the novels. So, I thought in the possibility of his disappearence because all the things phio_chan and me talked about in our previous posts.
Kuroh also stated that there are 7 clans but maybe the clan left still hasn't been rebuilt or have a new king yet, or it's considered merely simbolic after that accident. Of course, only if the hypothesis Kagutsu crater-missed King&clan it's true -.-u
(Let me know if I'm wrong )
For the novels. One of the admins of this group: https://www.facebook.com/#!/kAnimeGoRaProject is going to buy K: RED SIDE and K: BLUE SIDE and translate them (she'll try in December, now both books are out of prints)! And a third novel, titled BLACKxWHITE will be released in spring 2013 (the admin promised to buy and translate it as well!!).

For me who doesn't touch the novel at all, it feels like there's so much missing from the anime, especially in terms of kings. I hope in the remaining episodes we will be able to see more about them. I don't know if second season will be worth it since so far the plot is really just around proving someone is a bad king and finding out the other culprit. But they don't really do anything strange or bad to complicate the plot. It feels a bit too simple. Hopefully I'm wrong.
But thanks for the info!
And what Lomanghova said.
I haven't read the novel too, only synopsis and the pictures inside. That's why if there's a second season, I want it about the Kings and not some outsider. If you want a more fleshed out world of K, you should also read the mangas and listen to the drama CDs and radio dramas. There's a lot of background info there. This include how Kuro got his sword, Kotowari and Fushimi and Saruhiko going to the same school and having been friends for quite long.
Well, I've gotta say K has grown on me, but it's just Shiro and Kuro's relationship for me, really. The plot isn't very interesting, IMO. Neko can be cute, but she has her annoying moments too. I want to see more of Mikoto. I want answers.
Episode 9 returns to the current state of so-so level after previously interesting speed, I think. No Shiro, no Kuro, but we get to see other characters. I wonder if something happened to Neko since the students started to remember Shiro although the memory seemed blocked. Or that's how it's supposed to be in the beginning?
I love the way Mikoto does things, LOL~ I feel like he got the wrong target? The one speaking didn't seem to be Shiro, but then again we haven't really confirmed if it was Shiro who killed the boy. That seemed like a trap, in addition to Anna's vision.
When I first played the video, I was opening another window and looking at it, so I was a bit baffled when I heard German language (it's German, right?) out of nowhere.
It turned out it was a flashback to the young Adolf.
So I guess before we judge him, the producers want us to know his past first? Hmm.
I didn't think Adolf was so old. So actually this story has something to do with WWII. The kings' power is a result of research done by the first king. Oh, okay.
Anyway, everyone is starting to remember Shiro? This is getting weirder and weirder. And we still don't know the current condition of Shiro and friends. They are surely alive but I wonder what they are going to do.
And the one in the telephone. I'm sure it's the First King. I'll recognize that voice anywhere. Kakki-san, your voice reminds me too much of Natsu.
I guess he possesses another body? And he's calling Mikoto from the school, does he still want to make it seem like Shiro who did it?
It seems like the climax is starting, I can't wait to see the next eps though from the preview... no wonder my friend said the homo level is increasing. Munakata and Mikoto must have a history together.
As a german I'm annoyed... Didn't understand even ONE word... Why are they doing this? It's so annoying...
Well at least we go a bit of Adolfs backstory. Why the hell wasn't the Himmelreich bombed? It looks way to modern for WW2.
BTW, concerning the power of kings according to a guy from tvtropes who seem to have read the novel. what he wrote:
"According to the side novel, all kings are practically demigods who can bend, twist and distort the laws of physics that govern the world to their liking."
" The 'bomb and umbrella' thought experiment, used to describe Kings, states that no matter how many missiles or bullets are fired at The Chosen One, they would all miss him as if being deflected by a giant umbrella. But what if a nuclear bomb were to be dropped on their heads? Its power is such that, even if deflected, it'll still cause harm to The Chosen One. The answer is that fate itself won't allow the nuclear bomb to fall - it'll just hang there in the air, suspended by an invisible umbrella."
Basically, the Kings are pretty much physical gods who can screw the world anyway they want, probably the reason Adolf survive the bombing, while his sister did not.

And yeah, normally it wouldn't be that. We have countless examples of enemies getting very close to each other but it's so obviously fanservice that it's a total fail.
I don't know what exactly to say about episode 10. Nothing much shown... Even from Mikoto and Reishi's meeting, I thought it'd be something super serious, we'd get to look at past of the characters, but no. Except that they've known each other since before, that Mikoto is dying, that the crater in the past was thanks to a king's sword going out of control or something, and that Mikoto can end up like that. And the he cares not about those all.
I guess Shiro and the gang didn't know that HOMRA was looking for them and carefree-ly went back to the school? I wonder what will happen... Waiting for some action here.
