While walking home, Mikiya Kokutou comes across a familiar sight: Shiki Ryougi standing by a railing amidst the falling snow, just as when he first met her four years ago. While the two talk of their past and shared experiences, Mikiya realizes that something is strange about Shiki; rather, this is not the woman he has come to know, but an entirely different entity that dwells within Shiki's body...

I really liked Kara no Kyoukai. Some of the chapters are more fascinating to me than others, some more ecchi male gaze candy. It has intricate lore and mysterious, conflicted characters who reveal their natures over time, and who are multi-dimensional. I will note, in case the following is ultimately a consequence of the translation, that I listen/watch in English.

Shuushou is... I don't know if it's because I am spoiled by paying attention to literature and philosophy, but this felt like the pseudo-mystical musings of an adolescent who thinks theology, ethics, sociology, and science in general are all too boring to be true. It's like ...
