I started the series with this movie instead of 1 for a better understanding and so far most of it made sense. I could define the two Shikie's. I absolutely loved the art but one that that I did not like were the paused that it had.

I liked this more than the first one. It still looks pretty and sounds great. I did feel that there wasn't enough story for the whole 60 minutes but given what they had, the pacing was good like in the first movie. I guess a bigger story will emerge with later movies, but standing alone the stories of the first movies haven't been that impressive. The characters still feel rather distant because we were shown more about the relationship rather than what makes them tick. Shiki's split personality wasn't explained unless that's the "thing" she inherited from her father, nor was it explained how in the first movie she had lost at least one arm and acquired some sort of psychic hands. Particularly Kokutou still feels like an empty slate, there's not much you can tell about him. I could say this was well done because I'm looking forward to seeing more even though I don't normally like mysteries.

I think one thing to consider about Kara no Kyoukai is that each movie isn't necessarily meant to be a stand-alone film, rather it is a whole series of films divided where in which it was meant to be viewed in three parts. The first part encompasses Movies 1-3, the second encompasses Movies 4-5, and finally the 3rd part encompasses Movies 6-7 and the Epilogue.

Each part can be taken as a short season. Furthermore, you can also take it this way: Movies 1-4 is like Season 1, Movie 5 is the true OVA/Movie, and Movie 6-Epilogue is like Season 2 that is set after Movie 5. Hope that helps! ^_^

well that was confusing, in the end, they just let the murders go?? and it seems next movie will show how she got that psychic arm.

Finally we were able to understand a little of the history of the characters. I never imagined that Shiki had double personality and these deaths were quite disturbing.

Just to point out, you do realize he was just trying to prove her innocence right...?
I don't think many people realize that Shiki is actually borderline insane herself, and Mikiya going out of his way to do all that just shows how much he really cares for her.

This was Amazing. My eyes were glued to the screen. The first movie was kind of boring and confusing, but this one was just amazing. Can't wait to watch the next movie.

Ok movie. Slow movie.
I don't understand why he keeps belevies Shikki. Quite stupid, should of tell the police she is the killer. Don't like him.

Pretty good, better than the first one in my opinion with more intense scenes and great animation especially during the second half of the movie. It was also easier to keep track of what was going on in this movie than it was in the first movie. I give it a 9/10.

I'm not sure why people like this better than the first.

I didn't even like the fight scenes in the first, but it still was better. The whole "flight or float" thing was interesting, as was the talk about suicide. The soundtrack was also better in the first movie.

This one however was just pretty boring. I guess playing Tsukihime made it not very surprising there was two Shiki's and that she was behind the murders, so there was zero twist. And it just seemed so weird, I don't think anyone IRL would stay with a girl like Shiki, because she is crazy. If someone told me IRL they had two personalities and acted like that I'd nope the hell out of there.

Visuals are gorgeous, music is stunning, directing is beast.

But the pacing is horrible. It drags on too much. Scenery shots were way overused. And such a small plot didn't need so much time to be executed right.

this basically

The characters are dull. The main guy is a weird stalker who's just too persistent, and the main girl is a dull emotionless girl who hates everyone. I can't remember anyone else playing any significant role other than the uh servant of Shiki.

Anyway 5/10. Will give the series one more movie before I call it quits.
