The dark fantasy follows a high school sophomore named Akihito Kanbara. Although the boy appears human, he is half youmu and invulnerable to wounds because he can heal quickly. One day, Akihito meets freshman Mirai Kuriyama when it seems she is about to jump from the school rooftop. Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is unique even among members of the spirit world. Disturbing events begin to unfold after Akihito saves Mirai.

The Fantasy genre has had its share of great Anime and also really bad ones. I wasn't sure whether I'd like Kyoukai no Kanata or not since it didn't seem to do anything outside the norm. But boy, was I wrong. I actually liked it better than I expected to. Anyways, on to my review.

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

Both series deal with spirits and youkai and the exorcism of them but Noragami is perhaps more entertaining
Both Rika and Mirai have similar personality and character design. Also Yuuta and Akihito are drawn to our lovely female protagonist. In Chuunibyou: our main female and friends are chuunibyou or 8th grade syndrome aka Delusion of Grandeur. They are able to create imaginative battle sequences which we see throughout the series. In Kyoukai no Kanata: everyone has some sort of supernatural powers within them. Both series retain the comedy and drama atmosphere. Kyoto Animation is the same studio for both Chuunibyou, Kyoukai no Kanata and many other series. I would recommend you check out their other works.
