I got around to watching this just recently.
Holy shit that was amazing. Let's have some discussion if you guys don't mind. I got some questions about the plot.
Why did Shiki think she was the murderer when she wasn't, and how did she end up at the scene of the very last murder where she met Mikiya?
Why was Mikiya knocked out in the tower suicide episode?
Also I'm trying to figure out Mikiya as a character and how it fits into his relationship with Shiki. Particularly how he doesn't want anything in life or have any goals. Let's talk fags.
I honestly loved it for the art style but otherwise didn't like it all that much. It sure was pretty.
I guess it's not for everyone, but I think everyone can agree that Ufotable and Yuki Kajiura are a match made in heaven.
Yeah, also because I was watching it raw I think Shiki ended up confusing the shit out of me. I couldn't tell if it was a guy or not for so long only for both to be sort of true. And maybe some of the more profound stuff went over my head.
The ghost making people jump was interesting enough too.
If you read the books you would know the crazy classmate does it all. Shiki is a creature of habit and he takes advantage of this and commits the murders where Shiki will be walking. It is explained he had a hard time doing it infront of her house but he managed to do it to confuse her even more.
>Why did Shiki think she was the murderer when she wasn't, and how did she end up at the scene of the very last murder where she met Mikiya?
Firstly because she has multiple personalities, she thought it was SHIKI doing it. Secondly, she was drawn to the murders, whenever she went out for a walk she would always find them. Also Lio was probably stalking her.
>Why was Mikiya knocked out in the tower suicide episode?
Pretty certain he was being subjected to Kirie's inlfuence.
I want to fuck SHIKI. S/he seems like a pretty cool person.
But no one wants to fuck you.
Yeah the non-chronological format and the fact I didn't read the LN's made it difficult to keep up with. Also that classmate if probably the most hateable antagonist I've endured in a while. Felt like a huge relief when Shiki killed him.
Shit, I just remembered that Godot's Word guy too. I didn't really get his entire role.
Should I read the novels or just watch the movies, or perhaps I should do both? Also, when watching the movies, would it better to watch them in release order or chronological order?
I can't say whether or not to read the novels, but watching the movies in the order they presented it was fun. Kinda like watching Haruhi in the broadcast order if you've ever done that.
One thing I loved about this was seeing all the proto Nasu characters. Using Kotomine's VA for Araya and Shirou's for that redhead was such a tease, fucking loved it.
You should read them. It's not like you have anything better to do.
But I'm reading Tsukihime right now.
How strong would Fujino be with her Mystic Eyes combined with clairvoyance?
Well, the only story that suffers a lot of changes is Oblivion Recorder,if you're interested.
You mean, how she ended up at the end of the third movie?
Pretty sure she's just about the strongest esper on the planet at that point, depending on whether or not Shiki really counts as an esper.
Kara no Kyoukai was my first TM work so I was shocked to see Nasu reuse designs for Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night.
But Tomoe wasn't voiced by Shirou.
