This is part 3 of the KnK series
This is by far the most disturbing movie in the KnK series. Mostly because of the scene immediately showed after I started the movie.

[Story]: (8/10)
The story of KnK 3 now takes place 2 months before the events of the 1st KnK. I was actually hoping for the 3rd movie to move forward after the events of KnK but I guess we'll be getting more prequels.
One night, while Mikiya is walking, he found a girl lying on the ground and complains of a stomach pain. Mikiya decides to help her. Around the same time, a bunch of read more

Kara no Kyoukai review Part 3

Sometimes you have to take a step back in order to make any progress, and in a sense that's exactly what happens with the third installment of Kara no Kyoukai ~The Garden of Sinners~. After Satsujin Kosatsu Part 1 viewers may have been under the impression that the franchise would progress in a way that would allow for a degree of linearity with the development of the characters, but it seems like TYPE-MOON have their own agenda, and they're sticking to it.

Set a mere two months after the events in the first movie, Tsuukaku Zanryuu (Remaining Sense of Pain), focuses read more

Well here we have it, this is it; the third movie of the Kara no Kyoukai series. And as I have mentioned in my other reviews as well this movie is based on the Japanese novel series, authored by Kinoko Nasu and illustrated by Takashi Takeuchi. This movie is also probably the most anticipated movie by Type-Moon fans.

Well anyway onto this review.

Warning: Their are spoilers within this review, so please watch the movie first if you don't wish to be spoiled.

Story - 9
Well first off the story in the third movie, in my opinion, is much better than the second and first. The story read more

Welcome to the end of film festival week. As promised, we're going to look at Kara No Kyoukai 3: Tsuukaku Zanryuu. Which is also the third film chronologically. Hey, they got one out of four in the right spot. I just hope it's more like the second film (first chronologically) than it is the first (fourth chronologically.) Let's take a look at KnK 3 and find out.

We open the story with a scene of a woman being raped... Isn't that a bit too serious of a scene to open with? This is the type of content you want to give your audience time to brace read more

Anime: Fate/stay night
Artwork in both anime have great resemblances, due to the fact that both stories are written by Type-Moon. These anime feature a world where magic exists, and can be used be a given few people. Furthermore, the female protagonists are sword/knife-wielding bad-ass without descending into the usual dere stereotypes.

Anime: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Most people think that Higurashi is a violent anime. But I think Kara no Kyoukai is even more so. While Kara no Kyoukai's plot development is not as strong as Higurashi's, it offers better action scenes with good graphics and an even better soundtrack. Both are high quality anime.

Anime: Psycho-Pass
Grossly dark but entertaining story's with murderers that are beyond understanding; In Kara no Kyoukai 3 Fujino Asagami and in Psycho Pass Rikako Ouryou among other people.
Both got action and mystery.  
reportRecommended by ParadoxCharlie
Anime: Elfen Lied
Both includes similar characters. In Kara no Kyoukai movie we can also meet girl killing people with invisible weapons or something. They haircolor is also similar. 
reportRecommended by SotN
Anime: Shikabane Hime: Aka
Both feature main female heroines with supernatural powers who fight enemies that are somehow related to the source of their own powers.
Both have a regular male companion to their adventures.
Both have a dense and dark feel to it.
Art is similar.
