Review :

Kyoukai no Kanata has been one of the most demanded come back anime since it has been aired. It plays an imaginary yet treatable plot we could ever dream of. It is perhaps one of the most successful, and well-planned story to be a movie. Kako-hen , although, is a compilation of the entire series, (I skipped most of the boring scenes) caught my attention to cling on it. The ending is something I didnt look forward to, but getting to know more of the next is really exciting.

Mirai-hen, in other terms, is good for it's name as a movie. The episode runs for one and half hours and didnt keep any boring scenes. The plot mood is serious and mystery is kept through out, but the action is a bit lacking. 

I was hoping for the battle of Kuriyama Mirai and Kanbara Akihito (youmu). The relation of each characters is still there and when times that they were somewhat broken is still felt. The script, lines, and character facial design have helped to improve the story build up. Again, it was lacking on/kept hidden on how Ayaka-san and Izumi-san were related. Ayaka-san line was " You cant even ever kill her, I have fight against Izumi-san" as she was talking to Nase Hiroomi, Izumi-san's little brother. I recommend and I hope that there was a flashback, and somewhere on those scenes it'll stir the story between them. 

The movie , we all know and hope for is the feels, did a great job on that. It gained my sympathy, understanding, and longing for the situation to end. Each characters theme was well-pointed, especially to Hiroomi's dedication as a head of the Nase household. More importantly how double-sided each lines the characters says. From the previous series, Fujima Miroku said " We can finally be one. " I was sacked and believed it was a love scenic lines but it isn't. The music scores used is non-catchy , not feeling and has no impact at all but it wasnt just that bad.The setting is okay, same as always but the dark scene, when Kanbara-san said "so this is what Mirai's memories" is somewhat ridiculous, he was wounded and as in his background I didnt know Kanbara-san can soul leap into one's body. hahaha. Anyhow, seiyuu's portrayal syncs from the series. Directors and staffs should be proud of this anime. I guess the most attention would be is on the storyboard. It is well-planned, catching, mysterious, and lovable movie for an anime series. 

Kyoukai no Kanata the Movie is highly recommended on its' fans, shippers and mystery fanatics. I dont really watch series that has a movie, except for Detective Conan. This experience is refreshing and gives me high expectation of who will fall in the same as an anime series having a movie. This movie is conversable to its viewers.

Rate : 10/10
