Kyoukai no Kanata (Beyond the Boundary)



LN website: http://www.kyotoanimation.co.jp/books/kyokai/

An anime for the Kyoto Animation published light novel Kyoukai no Kanata written by Nagomu Torii and illustrated by Chise Kamoi is in the works. The novel recieved an honorable mention in the novel category in the 2nd Kyoto Animation Awards in 2011.

Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is unique even among members of the spirit world. Disturbing events begin to unfold after Akihito saves Mirai.
FINALLY!

For reference here's the CM for the light novel:

Excellent - KyoAni actually trying. They can do amazing things when that happens.

For the curious here was the staff for the CM last year:
Staff
Director/Storyboards: Taichi Ishidate
Character Design/Animation Director: Chise Kamoi
Key Animators: Chiyoko Ueno, Naoko Yamada, Rie Sezaki, Nao Naitou, Rika Oota, Tatsuya Satou (Animation DO)
In-between Check: Kiyoka Negi
Color Design: Kana Miyata
Special Effects: Shizuka Uno
Backgrounds: Tomoki Hirashi
Director of Photography: Tetsuo Umetsu

Ishidate has been rarely used since Nichijou and Kamoi drew the illustrations for the light novels. This was the project I felt that was most likely prior to last week's Chuunibyou CM.

What the hell? I always assumed that the vid was a commercial for Kyoani similar to the swimming one earlier. I'm so glad I was wrong

Oh boy, I hope this announcement doesn't stir the "KyoAni shouldn't waste their talents on SoL moeshit" crowd too much.

Dammit, those key animators ... weren't most of those guys in the Disappearance and Hyouka staffs? It might be too good to be real so I'm going to take a nap and come back when my mind is clear.

I saw "Kyoto Animation", read the title, and thought it read "Kyoukai no Konata" and had the impression it was a Lucky Star spinoff.

The premise is quite different from your usual KyoAni fare though, which should be interesting.

Synopsis looks interesting so are the glorious visuals. This is also the first KyoAni anime I think I will definitively watch.

This is so awesome. I remember seeing that CM and wishing it would happen. I really hope they can keep that level of animation.

Just stop complaining "moeblob" all the time
Although I agree that moeblob has been keeping KyoAni doing their best, I think it's not your place to hate KyoAni just because they do "moe" shows

Back to the topic, it will be interesting to see KyoAni doing a concept that is different from the anime they usually do

Nice, it's been too long since we saw Kyoani go all out like this.

This is one of those times where the plot almost seems secondary to the production, but hopefully, it won't be too bad either.

Kyoani finally getting out of their comfort zone after so many years. I'm hyped.

I figured it would be years before I even saw a glimpse of a KyoAni show that actually looked good after Hyouka. You have my attention now Kyoani, don't screw it up.

No! It's still based off an existing work, it has to be original!!!

Is what I'd say if I were grasping at straws as a hater lol
