Kara no Kyoukai review Part 1

Kara no Kyoukai (lit. The Boundary of Emptiness), is a series that has taken a long time to become well known. The story was originally created in 1998 by Nasu Kinoko and Takeuchi Takashi (who later went on to form TYPE-MOON), with the first five chapters being released on their doujin website, whilst the final two chapters were released in August 1999 at Comiket 56. The series was picked up by Kodansha for commercial publication in 2004, and this year (2009), will see the series released on the international market courtesy of Del Rey Manga.

Kara no Kyoukai part 1 review :(minor spoilers ahead)

Kara no Kyoukai is one of Kinoko Nasu's earliest ventures and is set in an alternative universe to Tsukihime and F/SN. Kara no Kyoukai is a series of 7 movies, plus some extras."Kara no Kyoukai" literally means "Boundary of Emptiness".The Kara no Kyoukai series is kind of odd in the fact that it is split into seven different movies; most of which are around 50 minutes long, except for movie 5 and 7 which are around 2 hours in length. The first number is the release number, and the 2nd number is the chronological read more

Before i start the review, i would like to give a short disclaimer/warning to this anime, if you do not want to read it, that is fine, please skip to my actual review. Okay, so Kara no Kyoukai is a series of 7 films and 1 OVA epilogue to them, please do not assume that each movie has its own beginning and end like normal movies do, i would rather consider this as extended episodes rather than movies as much like Harry Potter, each one ends on a cliffhanger to tell the one same story and while yes each movie does have its own plot, read more

Kara No Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei is the first of seven movies based on a series of light novels written by Kinoko Nasu and illustrated by Takashi Takeuchi. Despite the first in a septenary - for better or worse - the movie takes a rather disjointed, obscure approach.

You may expect the first in a septenary to chronicle the inception of the cast, or to establish the universe and conflict in the series. Instead, audiences are thrown into the middle of a story which seems like it was written for people with previous knowledge of the Kara no Kyoukai franchise. There's little in the way of read more

Recommendations

Same director, same composer, both based of Type Moon novels, along with both containing a similar feel and atmosphere. If you like one, you will most definitely like the other.
Both are focused around a somewhat kawaii protagonist which both aquire the power to kill "anything" yet still manage to find worthy opponents
Both protagonists have some sort of emotional/mental flaws
Both protagonists "slice" limbs off their opponents
Both are supernatural and dark, full of gore with awesome music
Both protagonists have a male counter part
Both anime are focused around murder or deaths of lots of people
Having seen both of these to the end I can say the only true similarities (they are similar of course) are that although one is male and one female, both anime contain a protagonist that has the mystic eyes of death. They see lines and the way their eyes are perceived are the same (seeing lines, cut through them, things die), and both of them are called "bloodthirsty killer" at least once. Both have a friend of the opposite gender. Tsukihime is more vampire based while Kara no Kyoukai is modern day (sort of)
Both also have a powerful male antagonist.
Similar themes. Both anime have dark atmosphere, some horror and gore mixed in with top-notch action. Very interesting and somewhat complex stories in both of the shows.
Both produced by TYPE-MOON. The character designs of Shiki and Canaan are VERY similar -- they even both have special abilities using their eyes! Also, both anime contain lots of blood and very stylized fights (jumping from rooftops, etc.). Although, Shiki uses a knife and Canaan uses a gun.
Denpa teki na Kanojo and Kara no Kyoukai feel very similar in a couple of ways, the rainy and gloomy atmosphere for both, and the whole murder mystery deal. Hell, even the first time I took a glimpse at both of these shows I couldn't tell the difference between them. Both are equally good and you should enjoy the similarities between these great shows.
