Kara no Kyoukai review Part 2

The problem with movies is that all too often they're lacking in one or two fundamental areas, and unfortunately these are normally the plot or the characters. The first installment of this series suffered from the latter, and while it was still enjoyable even with that flaw, there was always the nagging feeling that something wasn't quite right.

Thankfully this episode begins to address that issue.

The second installment in the Kara no Kyoukai ~The Garden of Sinners~ franchise, Satsujin Kosatsu (Murder Speculation), is actually part one of a two part story arc (viewers will have to wait for the seventh movie read more

Kara no Kyoukai 2 quite possibly exceeds the first movie in almost every aspect.

Recommendations

Blood, gore, mysterious killing (unknown to the public)... both are quite similar in these aspects
kara no kyokai and denpa teki na kanojo are actually 2 different 10/10 anime that are... perfect. they are both completely different stories yet their essences are also completely similar. In other words watching one and then the other will not be like watching the same thing but as if you are watching its ova.. kinda

Opening Theme

None

Ending Theme

"Kimi ga Hikari ni Kaete Iku" by Kalafina
