so anime doesn't really follow anime. these last episodes made me give up on the anime and I was about to never read the light novel. if it is true they are different then I will give LN a chance. ı hope there isn't anything like the last few episodes in the anime in LN.

I was going to gush about how much I liked the direction the show went in the past ~3 episodes and yes, even the ending, but then I read the last few pages.
Still drinking the Waters of Cynicism, huh guys?

Oh, also KENN is a godly actor and I would kill to see him in more Generic-Male-Lead roles because he can actually play them properly unlike 90% of seiyuu who play these characters.

finally got to sit down and finish watching it. well, regardless of the plot holes, I'm quite satisfied with the ending. I guess I'm just biased since it's my favourite anime studio and my favourite voice actor doing the show. Not too bad. Now I'm gonna go catch up with the LN. Hopefully we'll get to see a second season soon!

This was the most stupidest ending I have seen in a while in any show.. Well except maybe Kamisama's. First Mirai disappears and supposedly dies and then she just magically appears out of nowhere, with absolutely no explanation whatsoever.

I've heard some very interesting things about Beyond the Boundary. When I watched it for myself, there were things I liked, things I disliked, and things I absolutely. Cannot. Stand. More thoughts below...

^ And that's adapting just a portion of the first volume. For that perfect pacing, you may need 36 episodes for the first two volumes of the light novels. But that's impossible.

Indeed that would most likely never happen. I wouldn't mind seeing it if they decide to revisit it once the source material finishes but who knows when that'll happen.

I feel that the material is good enough that a decent adaptation would be pretty good, but the KnK we got just isn't cutting it for me.

The portion of the first volume that they adapted (2/3) consists of roughly 5 episodes of material in the series. The other 7 are anime original. If they did a more accurate adaptation it'd have only taken at most 9 episodes. According to the translator they've only used material from the first volume too. The terrible pacing is pretty much because they decided to make all the changes they did for the anime adaptation.

BD: *3,6** 境界の彼方
DVD: 1,7** 境界の彼方


I think it bombed.

For a KyoAni show, pretty much.
It is still "better" than Nichijou, although it managed to get worse than Tamako Market on he BD sales alone. That said, BD/DVD together, KnK is "slightly" better.

However, in term of sales, it is basically breaking even. Usually, you just need to reach the manabi line (aprox 3-4K units).

They have probably broken even already. Take note that KyoAni has their own shop for purchasing their merchandise and they are known for not revealing their sales figures. For all we know, they might have fans buying the BDs straight from the shop.

If you see the rest of the sales for the fall shows, it still did so much better

Even more than this, they are the top of the production committee so get a much more substantial take of the proceeds than most other anime studios would get for your average sub-contract work, not to mention they also publish the novels and get a cut of all merchandise sales whether sold through their store or not. So in that sense, even if the sales volume were less, they have substantially more to gain than your usual scenario.

I thought the two leads were likable, and they had great chemistry. But the plot was a real mess as so many others have pointed out. I still enjoyed it, but I doubt I'd rewatch any EPs.

so.....recently I finished this anime

it's actually little hard to finish this anime because it has a very good beginning... then we met episode 6.... after that everything is little messed-up

for me, Mirai is unpopular character... I would 1000% prefer Mitsuki and Ai than her
Mirai's personality is little bad.... well, she managed to be a cool person when she's saving Sakura and also she's sacrificing herself for Akihiko

for plot... honestly I don't mind about every original stuffs anime put in the anime
the battle is also beautiful... and a gloomy setting is suitable for the anime
*including episode 6.... I'm very okay with it*
however, there are too many problem with pacing.. and several plot holes

It's little hard for me to judge this series
Maybe if Mitsuki got explored more or somehow could be Mirai's love rival, then I might give a better score
8/10.... because of Yakuzoku no Kizuna and beautiful art
