I can never stop being impressed at how far Takeuchi's art has come from his Tsukihime days

I'm glad I pre-ordered Sofmap's release of the blu-ray boxset before the cut off date for the store exclusive bonuses. Also pre-ordered it from Animate many months ago when it was first announced, so yeah two copies of the BD set for me just like I said I would do lol. (I am tempted to pre-order from Gamers and Getchu.com for their exclusive bonuses though)

Finally watched this. I don't know what took me so long either.

Simply amazing. They did such a great job, nothing was left unanswered at all, it was complete.

Things sure did get graphic though, too much blood at times. Could have done without the rape as well.

I loved all the characters, especially Azaka, wish we had more of her.

I liked the fifth movie the best. Plenty of action and Nasu goodness to rack my brain.


One question, which has most certainly been answered but I am going to ask anyway: Was the novel non-linear as well?

Yes. The stories were in pretty much the same order in the original work.

Ahh... thanks. That was my biggest question regarding the adaptation. I do plan on watching it again, but I'll do it chronologically this time.

Man... I wish we had more Azaka, lol.

Really? I think that, albeit a strong scene, it was incredibly necessary for the whole development of the plot of the third movie, and I thought it was well handled.

Love Azaka as well, even though she really does not add to the story. But just her interaction with Shiki in the 6th movie was enough.

It was handled good and I don't think it should have been left out...it just...didn't have to be as lengthy.

Well, she presented Shiki with a rival so we had a chance to see Shiki a little jealous.

I think the Kara no Kyoukai series benefits tremendously from watching a second time. There's so many subtle things I didn't catch the first. (Like the full meaning behind Mikiya stabbing Alba).

I hope the BDs are released by someone, then I'll watch it again. Especially episode five. There was so much going on in that one... my mind was in a spiral by the end of it.

Some more little KnK merch I got in today. I just wish the blu-ray boxset would already be released since I've already paid in advance the full amount of the price for my Sofmap order.

Spoiler for latest KnK merch:

That's awesome. I love how the artwork wasn't changed so much. Like in Fate, there is a big difference between the original work and the anime.

May I ask where you purchased this merchandise from? That Ep. 7 poster looks gorgeous.

And was there ever an official art book released for the movies?

Most of it is from Yahoo Japan Auctions though some of the key animation books were bought from Mandarake.

The closest ones to an official art book in full colour for KnK are the full colour key animation art collection (gengashuus) that was released over 3 volumes to cover all 7 movies. They were only sold at Comiket as far as I know and are not the same as the black cover key animation books you see in the photos. Check below to see what I'm talking about

Spoiler:


The black cover key animation art collection books are sold on Ufotable's webshop where one was made for every single movie (Movies 5 and 7 had two made since they were quite long movies) and mainly consist of black and white sketches of certain scenes in the movie. Ufotable doesn't ship internationally so you're either going to have to use a deputy service to buy it or hope to find some of it listed on Mandarake (which some of it are listed right now).

In addition to that, there's also the storyboard e-conte collections where one was made for each movie and the Comiket 77 exclusive Staff Book Message Collection which I posted about on the previous page.

Thanks for the info! I remember seeing the black cover key animation art collection books at the Ufotable booth at the 2008 Tokyo Anime Fair. I didn't pick them up since they seemed rather sparse. Sad that they didn't release a full color art books, as this was definitely the most beautiful series I've ever seen.

These key animation books are sure nice and worth to checking out for those interested into animation but I've only the books of the 5th movie since it's really expensive...

By the way the official website uploaded a picture of the package (thanks to muhootsaver).

Gorgeous.

That looks so nice. I would have to something like that. A hardcover art book with staff & cast interviews, character stats, and other info, is the best bonus. But then again... I don't think I'd spend that kind of money on something like this. (This costs ¥52,500 which is $635!)
