A very popular early work from Kinoko Nasu from the Tsukihime & Fate fame, the Kara no Kyoukai universe has meet great success as an animated film adaptation, novels and radio dramas.

Kara no Kyoukai depicts a world were the true dark nature of the human being is being reviewed and exposed by shocking and ruthless events, and in the center of it all we have Ryougi Shiki, the true heir to the long lived, wealthy and mysterious Ryougi clan and Kokuto Mikiya, a would be normal high school student if it wouldn't be for his amazing deductive & investigative progress.

The moment Kokuto and Shiki meet is the moment that the wheel of fate started to turn, however is this fate moving forward naturally on it's own accord, or is it all being orchestrated from behind the scenes by an enigmatic persona? Only time will tell.

Really cool story, but i would watch the anime movies. They tell the complete story. Go to wikipedia to find the right chronological order to watch them. If not it can be quite confusing.

Quite an epic story. The romance plays a big part in this story and its deep and touching. The ending is good and overall I was happy i used my time on this.

Kara no Kyoukai is my long time favorite story. Actually, in my opinion, it is the best of all the Nasu's works. It has its unique eerie atmosphere, nicely done action and from time to time even some philosophical thoughts. You need to play attention to the story, because it is anachronistic and very confusing (which helps the overall theme and feeling of the series), but I had no problems understanding it. It's also one of those works which prove, that you don't need gigantic explosions, hundred characters and DBZ-like powers to create stunning battle scenes.

Definitely recommended, especially if you are fan of Kinoko Nasu's other works.
