Average Rating

In September 1998, a string of seemingly random suicides leaves Japan baffled and devastated. But a detective agency specializing in paranormal occurrences notices that there are a few glaring, disturbing similarities tying the deceptively unrelated cases together: All the victims are schoolgirls, and all of them have jumped to their deaths from atop the ancient Fujou Building, a skyscraper that is scheduled to be bulldozed soon. To investigate the cause of these disturbing events, the head of the agency, magus Touko Aozaki, dispatches Mikiya Kokutou and Shiki Ryougi. The kind and surprisingly normal Mikiya serves as a stark contrast to the cold and mysterious Shiki, who possesses the "Mystic Eyes of Death Perception": an abnormal ability which allows her to see, and bring, an end to all things. Dark and philosophical in tone, Fukan Fuukei is the first installment in the seven-part movie series Kara no Kyoukai, adapted from the light novels by Kinoko Nasu.

OP1: None
ED1: “oblivious” by Kalafina


Visuals are very impressive but the story is a lot of nothing and the characters couldn’t have less personality without being inanimate.


Brilliant animation, soundtrack, and introduction to story. Has great themes and character moments. Appreciated it more on my second watch


It was supposed to be an introduction to the franchise, but it’s confusing, pretentious and nothing makes sense.


Вообще не запоминающийся сюжет, но эффекты просто вышка


Looks great but the story was kind of hard to follow. Felt like it jumped directly into the middle of the story without explaining much.


Absolute stellar visuals. Story can be abit wild, can take abit of following. If you know nasu-verse might improve experience


A powerful first entry in the Kara no Kyoukai series of films. A breath taking array of music and mystery, suspense help it rise above.



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
