Surprised at how many people give 5 such high marks. As someone who's actually been educated on things like story construction I found it to actually be rather poor from a technical standpoint. 7 on quite the other hand did just about everything right. The rest served their purpose as backstory, but ultimately felt like a mixed bag of storytelling quality. Type Moon has always had a weakness for not establishing the rules of their stories, which leads to things often getting more and more extreme without the viewer having any basis for what 'reality' is and isn't in the story world. In fact, I nearly lost interest when what started as a relatively realistic world in movie 1 suddenly had fairies and robots and wizards and zombies by movie 6. While 7 didn't really address that problem it sufficiently swept it under the rug and tied things together excellently while simultaneously telling a standalone arc that was easily head and shoulders above the rest. The entire series definitely has its merits--there's enough interesting things going on to keep you wondering and wanting to find out what comes next. Movie 7 was just the only one that couldn't be accurately described as a mess (albeit an enjoyable one).

This guy. This guy knows how to criticize movies. *thumbs up*

Wow, I guess I'm in the minority, because I liked 4 (The Hollow Shrine) the most. In fact, it was the only one in the entire series that left me feeling more or less satisfied writing-wise. There was a lot of Touko-san, which probably added to the enjoyment. :3 It was also interesting to see Shiki overcome her trauma - both physical and mental, and learn to use her powers (although she did become OP way too quick, tbh - hardly any development there).

I did not like 5 *at all*, I'd rate it below 1,3 and 7 easily.

I feel like movie 2 and 4 are a little underappreciated.

Since I finally got to watch the last one, might as well put them in order, for the sake of future reference:


Glad that most people agree that the 5th one is the best, and the Azaka's story is the worst movie :> Although I honestly don't get the appeal of the last movie, huh... to each their own, I guess. Plus, I'm really not the fan of Shiki's backstory episodes, both of them were pretty boring for me.

For me it's 5 > 7 > 3 > 2 > 4 > 1 > 6

Sadly none of them really impressed me as much as I hoped, but 5, 7 and 3 (5 in particular) were still really really good.
