Stunning visuals and music as always. Azaka's a great girl.
Being able to change people's recognition using your own words is quite something, I like the idea of that. The movie itself was amazing. Definitely worth the wait. Plus a little more moe than the previous ones, heh. Loved this. Never got the feeling it was rushed. Conclusions usually come quickly, no complaints there. At first I thought it might be a weaker movie but it then totally dragged me in.
Gonna rewatch it later tonight.
windy said:Yeah that's what I thought when the theme song started playing. Nice touch.
Azaka's first line being quite similar to (but also the opposite of) the first line of fairytale was cool.

Drop kicking a giant flower fairy. Awesome.

There's only one more movie left and that explains the second half of Episode 2, so how does that tie in??
The last movie is the last one chronologically. The post-credits scene ties in to the first two movies chronologically, but the events of movie 7 will be the most recent ones.
wut. no i'm asking how the "post-credits" scene ties in with the story.
of any timeline lol.

One of the weaker movie in the series.
Definitely the weakest. I wish Shiki would have done something, she sat on her butt for the whole story. Wasn't she supposed to help Azaka since only Shiki could see the fairies? Azaka just solved the whole thing on her own.
Should have been longer.

Good movie, with a very enjoyable main character (Azaka is much cooler than her brother for sure ;)), but far from the 3rd (THE masterpiece of Kara no Kyoukai) and the 5th (although hugely overrated on MAL). Great animation, art, and fairy battle obviously. I'd say it's one of the 3 less interesting ones though, along with movies 1 and 4.

Where to start? Okay, basically Incest is not the main theme, but I can understand why it is called The Garden Of Sinners, Im not kidding. Second of all, Boukyaku needed a lot of Mikiya, hes an interesting character; I can't find a reason why would he not cry before a lose of a sibling, the gazing star scene with Azaka at the end touched my heart altough I find quite disturbing the logic of being inlove of a brother.
The whole Ouji / Kurogiri / Kaori issue was a bit overloaded with unnecessary drama, I foresighted that something like this was going to happen so they could include Azaka on the plotstoryline. We know a lot of Mikiya even tho hes almost not even in the series; quite obviously that hes a main character and hes the most important person for Shiki in all this. Continued by all of this, the epic fight of Azaka Vs. Ouji with the omagawd music on the background, fluent movement of the characters when they're fighting; ridiculously awesome. I always bristle before the animation of Kara No Kyoukai.
Araya Souren; Why can't he just die for once and all eh? Its so annoying to see him on every single movie without knowing whats his role on all of this, yeah, quite clearly stated that he was friend of Touko along with that blonde Clown in Mujun Rasen -I forgot his name- but can't they just make it clear whats his point? Why hes such an annoying cunt? Anyway back again to the movie, I wonder what the heck was that canibal at the end along with Araya? Could be that he'll be in the next one? Highly doubt since Satsujin Kousatsu is all about Shiki and Mikiya's past, could be that they're going to explain what happened on that highroad when Araya appeared in front of them then inmediately after a jumpback in time to the future? Ah well, the last one will probably explain it all.
Overall it was entertaining as hell, can't find a reason why someone wouldn't like KnK movies. The best one for me has been the third one.
EDIT: Nevermind I know why Araya is out in the end now talking to that canibal guy, He was one of the classmates that appeared in the first half of Satsujin Kousatsu, so it was obviously a preview of the next movie.

Even more stunning visuals than before (at least that's my impression) and great music.
On the other hand the movie was too short and missed out on going a bit more into the important parts instead of dragging some unimportant ones. The story was a bit simple, too. It felt a bit unusual for KnK, though I didn't dislike it. But it was weaker than several other ones.
Two things I didn't really get, though:
1. What was that flower? A minion of that magus which controlled the fairies?
2. How did the fight with the magus end? It seemed to me Shiki was able to stab him, though it was mentioned afterwards that he is still alive?

But anyway http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=67705&show=40#msg4095329 .
Damn. I was hoping Kokuto would have to make good on his "I would like Shiki even if she were a guy" statement.
Or wait, didn't she have a male personality anyway or something?

Not sure if I still remember it that clearly, but I think she originally had a male and a female personality. The male one fell kind of in love with Kokuto, but died later on in the accident. Now the female one is trying to act male in an attempt to replace her missing half. But it seems her initial dislike of Kokuto slowly turns into love, too.

Unless I'm missing something here, the male Shiki never fell in love with Kokuto as far as I can remember. If she did, she wouldn't have, you know, tried to kill him. If anything, I thought the female Shiki was the one who slowly developed something for Kokuto. And Touko says the current Shiki's personality is more like a new third personality because she isn't a complete normal school girl like the original female shiki and isn't entirely cold like the original male shiki (because she displays a really playful attitude sometimes).
and i don't think shiki's ever really disliked kokuto to begin with.
Well, maybe love was not the right word, but a strong liking it is. I rewatched that scene in movie 2 again and it's the male Shiki that liked Kokuto and the female one who tried to kill him and didn't really like him initially in movie 2. The male one clearly states that the female side has the complete control over the body. So you got it the other way round.
