Kara no Kyoukai Chapter 1: Overlooking View

(空の境界/第一章 俯瞰風景)

To be perfectly honest, I had a lot of anticipation riding on this movie. I’ve been a fan of Type-Moon since Tsukihime came out, and the favorable progression from the anime version of Tsukihime to Fate/Stay Night (good to better, but still not great) gave me plenty to hope for in this. I’m also surprised by the format they chose for Kara no Kyoukai; each chapter will have its own little movie. The end result?

One of the most enjoyable (if not one of the shortest) movies I’ve seen in a long time. Even if you aren’t a Type-Moon fan, this movie has a lot of polish, and a lot to offer. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of this animated.
