Kara no Kyoukai: Future Gospel, Say a Prayer for Shiki Ryougi

March 13, 2014

hisui_icon_4040 Kara no Kyoukai has done surprisingly well as a series of animated movies. The Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night anime definitely have their advocates and have brought in many people to get greater Type-Moon fandom, but they don’t have any real critical acclaim, and are mostly used as punch lines when discussing visual novel adaptations. Ufotable’s work on the Kara no Kyoukai anime stands apart. It showed that a Type-Moon property could be adapted to another medium in a way that could both please and impress the diehards, the casuals, and the professional reviewers. Fate/Zero showed that Kara no Kyoukai was not a fluke.

So the hunger only grew. The fans wanted more of Shiki and Mikiya’s adventures and Ufotable was more than willing to accommodate but the main story was done. So Ufotable looked to find all the minor pieces of Kara no Kyoukai that could still be animated. This has led to the production of the Future Gospel and Extra Chorus side stories.

I will mention that this article is not as much a review as my thoughts on the two movies. Mostly because:

1. Everyone knows my opinion of what a Type-Moon title would be.
2. At this point you have either decided to watch Kara no Kyoukai or not.

It would be very silly to try to start with this story here. You could. It would just be odd.
