Kara no Kyoukai review Part 6

The sixth movie in the Kara no Kyoukai series is, once again, a departure from what one has come to expect. Unfortunately Boukyaku Rokuon (or Oblivion Recording), is a somewhat lacklustre effort compared to the rest of the franchise, and is only carried through by some great visuals and excellent sound.

The story takes place in January 1999 and focuses on Kokuto Azaka, Mikiya's younger sister who was "adopted" by their uncle. She is enrolled at Reien, a school for girls, and is also apprenticed to Aozaki Touko in order to become a Magus.

The movie begins in a fairly ambivalent manner, read more

In the 6th movie, Ufotable has taken Kara no Kyoukai to a particularly awful level. Frankly, nothing other than the nice effects of the anime makes it alright.

I'll start with the good news...
The art and sound direction in Boukyaku Rokuon (Oblivion Recording) are both very nice. If you've seen some of the earlier installments, you'll know how impressive they are. If you have not, well, they are refined and a step above most anime MOVIES (which is a step above anime shows).

Unfortunately, the plot does not shine quite as nicely as the effects. This one focuses primarily on the relationship between Shiki and Azaka read more

Another addition to the Kara no Kyoukai series of films.

To me this film does not seem to be anything more than a 'filler' if you will. This is due to the fact that there is little no development of any of the characters and the only thing that this particular addition brings any light to is the confirmation that Azaka Kokuto does have an elder brother complex.
Speaking of which, it is done in a very cliche manner, however, it does attempt to explore the past of Azaka and Mikiya the reason being 'Azaka does not remember the exact moment that she fell in love read more

Welcome to 2015's Film Festival Week. We're kicking things off with yet another look at UFOtable's Kara no Kyoukai film franchise, based on the light novels by Nasu Kinoko. I've talked about the first five already, but let's reiterate a bit. Previously, in the Kara no Kyoukai movies Mikiya collapses on a couch because he likes dolls and gets left to rot in the first and there is much stupidity. The second goes back in time to Mikiya and Shiki's first meeting and the subtle mystery surrounding it and it's surprisingly good given the first one. In the third, a group of rapists are being read more

This is part 6 of the KnK series
A lot can be said about this film. Some people thought this was the worst film in the KnK series and some people, like me, thought this was a decent film.

(There will be some SPOILERS in my review)

[Story]: (6/10) (SPOILERS)
The 6th movie of the Kara no Kyoukai series now takes place 2 months after the events of the 5th KnK. Apprentice Mage Azaka Kokutou has been ordered by her mentor, Touko Aozaki, to investigate an incident in which fairies steal the memories of students at Reien Academy. Azaka, with Shiki's help, launches an investigation to solve the read more

I'll preface by saying I read the light novels before watching the movie.
I'm going to have to bash on this one.

This chapter in the light novel was originally pretty fanservice-y, but I decided to forgive it since I figured it was to let the viewer relax from the mindfuck that was chapter 5. Also, it could be serious at times, and in her defense Azaka actually was much more mature in the light novel than in the movie. But the movie I could just not take seriously at all. They made Azaka into a moe imouto-type character and changed around a large part of the read more

This was a rather mediocre-feeling entry into the Karo no Kyoukai series. And, I don't mean mediocre by the standards of the series (which is generally amazing), but rather, mediocre in general.

It is set in an all-girls' boarding school and starts promisingly with a speech about blatant incest, but quickly degenerates into a medium-paced murder mystery with no sort of zest, tension, or real zing, at all.

Shiki is almost pedestrian.

Okay, so, this is not really a bad episode, even standing on its own. It is a good drama with a murder mystery and minimal slice-of-life / school drama overtones.

However, it doesn't seem read more

Well… I can’t say I was looking forward to watching this movie.

Yeah, even in my original viewing of this series, I didn’t really care for this movie. I liked it overall, but I always found it somewhat lacking. Still though, considering I enjoyed the last three movies even more than before, that’ll probably also be the case for this one… right?

Well… no. In fact, I think I like it even less than before.

Let’s start with the big thing about this movie: Kokutou Azaka. It’s not uncommon for Nasu works to have a Worst Girl, and unfortunately, Azaka is this. Mind you, I comparison to other read more

story:more or less shiki going and assisting azaka to get rid of a potential faerie problem at a boarding school.

art: still awesome just like the others. :)

sound: brought out the fights in some scenes. :)

character: azaka if a peculiar person, but shiki is still awesome.

enjoyment: was okay. some action and left me wondering on some possible things left unsaid in the movie in a good way. :)

overall: was good and a more subtle episode compared to the previous movies.
