Kara no Kyoukai - The Garden of Sinners Number 6: Oblivion Recording Review

30 JUL

Yeah, it's got one hell of a long title if you were to write it out in full...hence why I'm going to refer to it simply as Kara no Kyoukai from now on.

I'm not going to write this in your standard review format.  Simply because it would be trying to write a review for each episode in a 13 episode series and trying not to relate them to the others.  The trouble with Kara no Kyoukai is that it is one continous story that jumps back and forth, slowly building up the picture, so that by the end you finally know just where all the films link in with another.

That said, the 6th installment was something of a disappointment on the whole.  Don't get me wrong, the animation, soundtrack, vocals and characters are of the same high quality as the previous films.  What it lacked was the Shiki presence, something which I felt was needed somewhat.  It seemed to not focus on her as much, but rather exploring the world of the magus.

It had a lot, LOT lighter tone to the piece with more comedy and some moments which made you burst out with laughter...something which Kara no Kyoukai rarely does.  Either way, it just didn't have the same feel as the previous films, but it does help explain just some of the background of the films and just how widespread the mysterious world is.

On the whole, its worth watching if you've seen the previous ones....just because its Kara no Kyoukai and its outstanding quality.  Just don't be too disappointed by the film and remember, we've got the final one to come (Study in Murder: Part 2) which will hopefully show us exactly what happened after film 2.
