Synopsis

In the city where Shiki lives, something triggers a spate of mysterious schoolgirl suicides. The connection between the girls who leapt to their deaths is unclear, although all of them have jumped from the Fujou Building, a skyscraper scheduled to be demolished. Meanwhile, Mikiya, after having gone near the Fujou Building, has fallen into a coma. Shiki heads to the Fujou Building herself to save Mikiya. And waiting for her there…is Kirie Fujou. The girls' suicides and Mikiya's coma were all caused by Kirie. Terminal illness had left her bedridden and immobile in a hospital, but one day, she acquires a spiritual body, a separate entity from herself.

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.

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

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

Opening Theme

None

Ending Theme

"oblivious" by Kalafina
