The problem isn't your kanban view, it's your action.  In ir.actions.act_window, view_type only refers to one of two options: form or tree.  98% of the time, you want a form type.  An example of the tree type is the Chart of Accounts view - a nested set of groupings where clicking the text calls an action rather than just expanding another grouping.

You need to take kanban out of the view_type and insert it into view_mode, along with any other views you want present on that action.
