Technical masterpiece!
1 January 2010 | by (Tokyo / Toronto) – See all my reviews

Note: This will be a review for all 7 "Kara no Kyoukai" movies. Each film is about a different incident, but there are a lot of flashback scenes that explain past events in latter films. All the movies should be watched in sequence like an anime series rather than individual films.

"Kara no Kyoukai" literally means "Boundary of Emptiness", is a dark fantasy anime about a girl with super powers fighting her urge to commit murder.

Animation quality is absolutely insane, even in theatrical anime standards. Every scene is filled details and wonderful coloring. In fact, animation in these films rival Byousoku 5 Centimeters (2007), which I consider to be the most photorealistic film that retains the anime feel to the drawings.

Sound is almost equally stunning, each scene with perfectly matching BGM, and especially dramatic orchestrated music for fighting scenes.

Each film is directed by a different director, and all 'episodes' have different feel to them, but they're relatively consistent and well-done. I especially liked the 5th film: "Mujun Rasen (Paradox Spiral)".

You will most likely be very confused by the time you finish watching the first 3 movies, but pieces start to connect, and you'll be drawn in to the story. However, I feel the characters could've been developed a lot better (since total run-time of 7 movies are close to a two-season-long/26ep anime series). Also, there's just too much skipped between each incidents, sub-main characters like Touko and Mikiya's sister had smaller roles than I would've liked.

Still, audio/visuals are simply perfect. That alone makes "Kara no Kyoukai" a worthwhile anime to watch, and it's definitely one of the most well-produced and complex anime 'series' ever.
