Kara no Kyoukai review Part 4

One of the hallmarks of a good story is the ease with which it can suspend the disbelief of the reader or viewer, and in that respect the Kara no Kyoukai franchise has been good, but not truly great. That said, the fourth installment, Garan no Dou (The Hollow Shrine), is a tad more introspective than previous outings, and it may signify a shift into a higher gear for the series.

I really like many of the TYPE MOON series and one of them is Kara no Kyoukai. And this chapter is very interesting and fascinating.

The animation is very clear, many scenes were dark but this just add more mystery and thrill, just what this anime is. There are many abstrac obscure scenes and in this time, you're not going to see many bloody scenes, however, routine scenes are intriguing, too. I like the character design but I think is kind of little cliche, both of the main characters read more

In the chronological of kara no kyoukai this should be the second episode to watch..continued from kara no kyoukai 2:Satsujin Kōsatsu from this episode it will answered most of the question that involved to other episode,its answered why Shiki got the eyes and what the eyes ability was and also introduction or why Touko want to involved to Shiki and this movies also how Shiki want to work or to used his ability by working under Touko and the last credit its show who was the person that responsibility for all the case that Touka involved to..
As for the char and the background there's nothing read more
