I've just seen the first episode/OAV/movie-rendition and this has to be one of the best organized story I've seen in a while that is told in such a straight forward manner.

As Kaoru said already, going back to 20 minutes of anime dosage was less than ordinary. I can't wait to watch the 2nd rendition.

Anidb (as unreliable as it is) lists the 4th movie as being 50 minutes long.
From the little I've read of the novels, the length of the 4th chapter onwards(epilogue aside of course) starts to grow. Big time. I'd actually think it would be around the range of 90-120 minutes to be honest.

You're referring to the fifth chapter, which has been confirmed to be around 2 hours (longer if necessary) by ufotable.

The Kara no Kyoukai novel has kanji that exist outside typical use by even most native Japanese speakers. A few combinations of such kanji have to have their readings guessed (although, most Japanese readers would be able to ascertain the meaning of the kanji). If you can read just "a little" of it, that's already pretty awesome. (I'm assuming you're not a native-born speaker).

The reason this story's so well done is because 1.) it was originally written as a novel and 2.) it's Type-Moon. The animators not only provide spectacular art work, but also seem to want to stick to the story progression in the book (I haven't seen the newest episode).

At least, that's how I feel the animators are doing it.

I stand corrected, and yeah the fourth movie has aired on the 24th of May.

Yeah, I'm not a native speaker and my brain fried trying to read half the first chapter. The rest I tried to skim. So yeah that's where my not-so-accurate estimate of the word count came up. Damned Nasuspeak...

In addition to the two factors you brought up, I feel that the Ufotable, the animators needs some credit as well. By making the changes from the original novels are nothing but cosmetic/time-saving(from what I remember from the 1st chapter) and not working their creative license too much, they retain the essence of the original material. Not to mention I bet they wanted to avoid the debacle that was the Tsukihime ani-, uh you know what I mean.

<-watched the third movie
Wow.....that was wonderful

I seriously thought
Spoiler for the ending:


Spoiler for Not really. But just some details. If you haven't read the novel don't watch:


Of course...I'm a Fujino fan. So this chapter will remain my favorite for now.

I was quite worried, too, especially when the medical problem was explained, but I kept hope with a certain Tsukihime far-side route in mind, and sure enough... A little satisfaction/relief, at anticipating that.

A love triangle would be awesomely terrifying. Those girls don't mess around!

This third movie is by far the best of the three. For the first time, the story feels "complete".

Same. When Kokutou smiled. I smiled. The music coming in was perfect aswell.

I hope we get some doujin material related to that

Well all the movies so far have tried their best to be complete (all ending on a somewhat happy note).
But yes the third movie has more satisfaction than the last 2. It's finally a REAL happy end.

3rd entry in this series has proved to be just as much of a piece of art as the 2 that preceded it...Just wonderful.

It really does feel hard to find consistently good storytelling like this anymore...Their may be some that have one or two truly brilliant tales to tell but this really has continually delivered beautifully crafted stories.

I can only hope this series gets the recognition it deserves to be licensed.

Enchanting as usual, but I found this episode more confusing as well. Fujino's condition and how it relates to her powers warped my mind for the duration of the episode.

Spoiler for Fujino's past:

The only cure for that is to lurk moar. But for now we'll say that the image conveys a favorable impression.

Is it really that hard to understand? It's best not to explain it to him since I'll get a bit graphic.

It was definitely the most graphic of the films.

In both violence and the starting scene.

I'm a Fujino fan too, so this is currently my favourite.

The cards themselves aren't important.
