According to the official website of light novel "Kyoukai no Kanata" (Beyond the Boundary), which is published by KA Esma Bunko, the light novel publishing arm of Kyoto Animation, the studio is making an anime based on the light novel. No more details are available yet. So far, including the volume to be released next week, there are two volumes of the light novel.

Last year, Kyoto Animation made a CM to promote the light novel:



Catchphrases in the video:
"A person like you who looks so well in glasses must not die."
"Do I look like a normal human?"

From the blurb of the novel:
The story is about a high school student named Akihito Kanbara who was born between human and Youmu. One day he meets a young girl named Mirai Kuriyama on the roof top of the school as she seemed to be about to jump from there. Mirai is unique among members of the spirit world in having a "blood" ability and she has been fighting all by herself. Akihito sees a lot in common about himself in her, and he decides to help her. However, around them unsettling events start to develop...

Kyoukai no Kanata on MAL

Topic Locked.
Please move discussion of this series to the most recent news thread.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Hooo? An anime that KyoAni doesn't seem like they're just phoning in?

Skipped Tamako but Hyouka was interesting enough. Will definitely check this out

This was only a matter of time because it will be getting a 2nd light novel just like Chu2koi did and they were both "honourable" mentions in the novel category of the KyoAni awards.

Looking forward to it... based on how Chu2koi was presented :)

symbv, how are the male KyoAni fans reacting in Japan? I recall some of them were not happy at KyoAni for releasing that "swimming" CM.

EDIT: Someone has already made a queued DB entry for Kyoukai no Kanata.

Can't wait for some delusional people to think that the Swimming CM might get expanded into a proper series because of this.

Although I already knew that the LN and CM will probably get anime adaptation, but just want to say
Finally!!
Good move from KyoAni :)
The synopsis looks interesting and somehow different from typical anime that they have done
Will definitely watch

I have absolutely no idea what is this. Just like Mondaiji and OreShura, a LN that publishes limited copies, that turn into mainstream after anime airs, might be the fate of this series if it does well. I'll keep my eye on it.

Sounds generic, girl with glasses is ugly and seems like they can't get away from Kon art style but who knows, maybe checking the first episode won't hurt. I would be nice to see some action series from KyoAni since slice of life and comedy is not their strong point anymore.

But yeah, it would be nice to see some action series from them

LN published by KA Esma BUnko is usually quite obscure, not least because it is sold in very few places - I suspect most of the sales go through KyoAni's own store. In this aspect it is not like Mondaiji or OreShura, which at least are much better known than this one even before they got anime adaptation.
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

Anyway, I'm glad for this one. I thought it was planned already and was disappointed when I found out it wasn't~

Can you rewrite the first sentence of the news post? It just feels off to read but I don't know how to explain it well. There's something incorrect in the structure and the way some statements refer to the subject of whole sentence. It probably doesn't matter I guess but I just felt that it needs to be corrected.

Also, it would probably be good to highlight "catchphrase" and "synopsis of the novel" for the post and remove the "said:". Something like:

Catchphrase of the video:
"A person like you who looks so well in glasses must not die."
"Do I look like a normal human?"

Synopsis of the novel:
"The story is about a high school student...etc"

Just my 2 cents.

Otherwise, looking forward to it. I like what I see in the video.

Grammatically I do not see issue, but I can see the structure may look a bit confusing so I added a few words to make the sentence clearer.

:O Saw the video last year and was really intrigued by it but got disappointed that it wasn't an anime.

Now I'm all hyped up for it! :D
Haven't watched Tamako Market yet but Hyouka was just wonderful.

Excited! :D


My forum picture is awesome. #sorrynotsorry (tumblr)

No one's fighting it really, it's just that the probability of it becoming an anime is next to zero. this anime is based off of a light novel, not a "CM".

I watched this CM not too long ago and thought, "God damn it KyoAni, you're making something boring and unoriginal like Tamako Market but not something interesting like this..!?"

Looks like I'm wrong.

Either way, I'm glad it's this and not swimming anime. Actually, I'd prefer a season two of Tamako (which probably will never happen) over swimming anime.
