Kara no Kyoukai review Part 8

Finding a way to end a story can be a little tricky if the tale in question has no "natural" conclusion, and in cases like those there is a tendency towards overemphasizing key events in the plot or particular moments of character development through the use of flashbacks or the ubiquitous clip show before the big finale. There is a problem with this method though, as while it can be effective in the right sort of setting, it also has the potential to ruin a perfectly good narrative. That said, the last hurrah of the Kara no Kyoukai franchise is read more

This is the epilogue of the KnK series
30 minutes of wrap up. That's pretty much it.

[Story]: (5/10)
The KnK epilogue now takes place 1 month after the events of the 7th movie. While Mikiya is walking, he saw "Shiki Ryougi" standing at the exact same spot where they first met about 4 years ago.
If you were expecting something great to happen then don't. This is literally 30 minutes of Shiki and Mikiya having a conversation. What's the conversation about? It's about Shiki's dual personality and the "Shiki Ryougi" that he's seeing is not Shiki or SHIKI. Notice the quotation marks, the name Shiki with read more

What was the point of this Epilogue? Lets toss around a few scenes of characters standing in the rain on a roadside and listen to one of them talk for a half hour about deep deep things (tm) like PHILOSOPHY and EXISTENCE and WHO ONE IS.

I really really wonder why this episode was rated so high. Maybe people were afraid that if they didn't rate such DEEP THOUGHTS high, others would find them dull.

DEEP THOUGHT equals not enjoyable anime.

DEEP THOUGHTS + PLOT can equal enjoyable anime.

Plot, plot, where are you?

Oh boy. So I watched this a while ago, so I may have forgotten a bit about what happened in terms of story... er... well, I think, anyhow.

Story: 1

Yeah so, there's not actually any story in this. I know, sue me, but there's storytelling in the dialogue, should you be inclined to follow it. I'll warn you though, it's deeper than the subsonic frequencies produced in the Mariana Trench while watching Boku no Pico. It's harder to follow than a blind and deaf man in a pitch-black labyrinth while drunk, dizzy, and inexplicably blindfolded. Or maybe I'm just not smart enough to figure it out. read more
