Kara no Kyoukai review Part 8.

There's an old aphorism about saving the best till last, and Kara no Kyoukai ~The Garden of Sinners~ has done just that.

The seventh and final movie in the franchise doesn't simply follow the events of the second movie, but utilises threads from several previous stories to weave an interesting, and sometimes disturbing, tale of obsession. The second part of Satsujin Kousatsu (Murder Speculation), takes place in February 1999, one month after Oblivion Recording, and more than three years after the events in the second movie.

This time around it seems the serial killer from part one is back, and as the read more

When it comes to watching anime, any anime series can keep someone entertained for the entirety of its length. But it takes a truly remarkable series to become memorable among the bottomless sea of anime. Kara no Kyoukai is that series.

Kara no Kyoukai 7: Satsujin Kousatsu Part 2 is the finale of a string of movies based of a series of light novels by Kinoko Nasu. In the final movie, the story revolves around the appearance of multiple murders as well as the disappearance of Ryougi Shiki, and Kokutou Mikiya's attempt to unravel the mysteries of the murders and Shiki's whereabouts.

(Before reading, I would like to say that this is my first review in MyAnimeList and any criticism or feedback would be great. In addition, this is a review of the entire KnK series not just the 7th one. Any recommendations from fellow Kara no Kyoukai fans would also be appreciated. There might be spoilers so WATCH OUT. THANK YOU!!!)

Story:
The story has been deemed confusing as I cannot myself disagree with this notion. However, I believe this vagueness at the beginning of the anime was meant to interest readers as the anime overall had a mysterious aura to it. If the entire story were explained read more

This is the final and possibly best installment of the series Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners. I would like to mention before I begin that if you have a minimal knowledge of the previous movies in the series this may spoil the franchise for you. Let me also say, I have not read the novels, for in a way, I wanted to savor the animation and suspense these movies bring. And boy am I glad I did. When I finished this anime, I was taken back for a moment. It's one of those few anime miracles that occur, a deep breath, an awkward read more

Anime: Shingetsutan Tsukihime
the main protagonists in both share the same name and the ability to see lines which once cut the whole object crumbles. they both have this dark feel to them and involve a series of murders. if you haven't watch neither i suggest you watch kara no kyoukai first as it is a vastly superior story with better developed characters, drama, and romance.

Anime: Another
In both, Another and Kara no Kyoukai (all 7 films), you get the same feeling, that creepy and scary feeling. Both are masterpieces in their genre (horror, supernatural, etc.) and they are worth your time to watch them. They also have gore parts in where you can see how the person is actually dying, or how their extremities are cut and stuff. As I just said, they're masterpieces that no one should miss. 
reportRecommended by estefyrgzz
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: Cossette no Shouzou
(Of course I mean the whole KnK series, not just the final movie.) These titles are similar in many ways. First, they share a gloomy atmosphere, occult themes, rivers of blood & lots of other horrors. Second, both are truly stunning artworks featuring all modern achievements in the field of animation. Third, the plot: the two stories are equally unpredictable, with unexpected sharp turns and mind-blowing endings, and also connected by themes of love, sacrifice and redemption. And last — but definitely not least — the brilliant music by Yuki Kaiura.
