I finished first and didn't think there was anything special, i saw second - i was very bored, i couldn't watch third till the end, I nearly fell asleep. Would you suggest to read me this novel? Or its just fanboys that voted this novel to be nr 9 on rankings?

Watch through the rest of the movies. the 5th and the 7th movie's are like the best :)

(but the first, 2nd and 4th movie's are the worst..)

Honestly, I think you're bored because you haven't quite gotten to the point where things start to make sense. Besides, movies 5 and 7 are the best of these films, so at least watch those.

late reply but at least watch the 3rd movie, it's also one of the better ones. But it's the kind of thing you have to finish completely to fully appreciate, the story is two interconnected plots and it all comes full circle at the end in a satisfying way.

But seriously, if the movies are managing to bore you, you wouldn't want to read it because Nasu's writing, especially in this (one of his oldest works) is really really wordy and verbose. To some degree it's necessary because he basically establishes the major principles of the universe that Tsukihime and the Fate/ franchise occur in. The movies were cut down for run time in some places but the original work clocks in at like 650+ pages. Although if you have the patience it's a great read and supplements the movies in a few places (most obvious being that movie 6 was cut way down from chapter 6, the other changes are generally far more minor)

Considering you found this boring, I'm going to have to think you are a philistine, and pretty stupid, because you didn't tell us WHY you found them boring.

I'm just going to have to assume you cannot appreciate art, story, and depth.

Hey, hey. No need to project your insecurities onto others here.
There's no need to belittle strangers online just to fuel your false sense of intellectual superiority and worth as a... "connoisseur" of art.
Fuck reality, I am the world.

Some people have bad taste, also besides those that just have bad taste he could also be a troll considering he didn't even say why he found them boring.

You need to be able to appreciate excellent directing and animation, suspense building and brilliant OST with sometimes slow plot development if you want to be able to enjoy the movies. I haven't read the LN so can't comment on that.

That said, because of aforementioned reasons, I never once found KnK boring. Time flew by as I watched them.
top 4 things I rate on
1. the current lunar phase
2. the x-factor
3. number of bitch slaps/episode
4. religious symbolism (levels 1-5)

The 6th movie was obviously the most inferior one. The rest was High to Godlike tier. The Epilogue was so-so.

I can't wait for Mirai Fukuin to come out, damn it. It's gonna be amazing shit.
