Synopsis

The story is set in a fictional world in which normal people and supernatural beings called youmu coexist. These creatures can be found in various shapes and sizes, and even though they are mostly harmless, some of them can be very dangerous and feral.

Things start changing when Akihito Kanbara, a high school student who is half youmu, meets a girl named Mirai Kuriyama, who is a spirit hunter with the rare ability to manipulate her own blood. Mirai is very wary of youmu in general so she attacks Akihito, but gets surprised when she sees that his power is being able to heal quickly, making him almost invulnerable. They soon realize that they will need each other's help in order to survive the attacks of dangerous monsters that are coming their way. Will these two very different people be able to work together towards a common goal?

Background

Kyoukai no Kanata covers the storyline of the first two volumes of the light novel adaptation. It has been licensed by Sentai Filmworks in North America, Hanabee in Australia and Animatsu Entertainment in the United Kingdom. It was also simulcast on Crunchyroll.

Watching Kyoukai no Kanata is like riding a train but as it moves, it goes down spiral, into the abyss, and finally reaches trainwreck at the shadow of the pit. Don’t get me wrong, the show has quite an promising premise with the style of a dark fantasy genre. It’s something that Kyoto Animation haven’t tried before in the past so Kyoukai no Kanata should set its par high with this new style, right? Wrong. This series is fails at various levels and if you’re expecting a deep engaging story with well developed characters, then look somewhere else. It doesn’t break any boundary or go read more

"Judgement prevent us from seeing the good that lies beyond appearances."
-Wayne Dyer

There is one thing I will rarely, if ever, do. That is give the show a rating before watching the entire show through. That doesn't mean that I don't have preconceived notions about the show and have some idea how I'm going to rate it. As a human being, I am flawed with the inability to look at something objectively from the beginning. That being said, I felt like I should take the time to address all the people somehow climbing over each other trying to stick his or her opinion down the throat's read more

Damn, I feel like one of the few people who really really loves Kyoukai no Kanata on this damn site. I guess it's explaining time because as I really really like it I want it to have a halfway decent review. (especially since most of these seem written from a bias perspective from someone who only watched the first 3 episodes.

Kyuokai is not perfect, but it makes up for a lot of its flaws with gorgeous animation good laughs and a completely enjoyable ride the whole way through. The story of KnK definitely isn't original in the slightest to start off. Like everyone is saying read more

"No amount of great animation will save a bad story."-John Lasseter

When news came out that Kyoto Animation was going to make a supernatural anime me like many others were surprised and excited. A supernatural show with great animation made by one of the most popular anime studios in japan? What could possibly go wrong with Kyoukai No Kanata? Almost everything,apparently.

The story is set in a fictional world where Supernatural creatures called Youmu exist. Youmu come in various shapes and sizes. Although most Youmu are harmless. Some could be hostile and dangerous. To stop these Youmu from harming read more
