Yes. I read the books a while ago. Glad someone else has seen it; all my topics keep dieing. I know at least Taiyakioni has also seen it. I cannot wait for the Blu-Ray release to come out.

Wait, is this being released in the US? The ANN page didn't say anything about it being licensed, so I assumed that it wasn't. O.O

Also, someone clarify something for me:

Ah ha ha, I read them about 3 years ago. I think it was Del Ray that bought the right? I know Anime Bostom showed Spiral Paradox a few seasons back but that was subbed, Not sure if its going stateside. I own several of the films, but they are the Japanese limited edition w/ soundtrack. I always stay up to date with e-mails from the official site so I'll post when I get something new.

It was licensed by Del Ray, but 1) Del Ray's website is crap, and 2) from what I've read, it got bought up by Kodansha USA, and there is, like, no information about them, at all.

Ever since their fiasco with the Zaregoto light novels, I really don't trust Del Ray anymore D:

Kodansha on the other hand, are the original publishers in Japan and I feel would do a much better job.

>< I wouldn't know. My interest in light novels just started recently when I realized all of the anime I like lately are derived from light novels and video games, not manga.....(Baccano, Durrarara, Myself; Yourself, etc. etc).

Found my topic pertaining to the Final Movie, Kara No Kyoukai.

http://www.acen.org/...ara-no-kyoukai/

We will have to wait for this release since it is not going to theaters. I wouldn't expect anything too long, though. The chapter in the book was a few pages only.

>< Omg so expensive....

It'll be released at a cheaper price at some point, right? I don't need all the fancy bells and whistles (I want them, but I don't need them). I'd even settle for the DVDs rather than Blue Ray. I just...don't have $500 to spend. ><

I think it'll stay at that price, but this is Japan. Dvd/cds are really expensive over there so if Kara No Kyoukai comes over here, it'll probably be $20 per regular dvd, or maybe $150 for a special box set. That being said, I think there are still cinemas over there marathoning the films.

I know the series is graphic sometimes, but not more than a lot of other stuff out there so I really do wonder why we haven't seen it hit shores.

Yeah. Violence-wise, it's not any worse than Baccano. I wonder if it's not because of the sexual stuff in the 3rd and 7th movies...

I doubt sexuality has anything to do with it when there are books like Mitsudome, IWGP, Yubisaki Milk Tea and others like these being published and released, all of which are M rated manga for strong sexuality, nudity and violence.

True. I was thinking because all of the sexual content in Kara is less than consensual maybe that was why, but... =/

Though something I also saw about Kara No Kyoukai, is not many people really paid attention to it. While it was (as still is) big in Japan, it never got that big of a following over seas here. Even now it is just the 3 of us talking about it, and I just can't figure out why.

Maybe we have those nifty eyes and Kara No Kyoukai are those lines that only we can see :/

Lol. Honestly, the only reason I found Kara was because there are a few clips of it in one of my favorite anime and I thought it looked cool (interesting character designs and whatnot). Otherwise, I probably never would have found it.

I know I'm studying Japanese and all, but I'm not that good yet. Any chance you can tell me the basic gist of what that's saying? ^.^;;;

If you have Google Chrome it comes with an auto translate function that translates Japanese into english for you ( if you're lazy like me and don't feel like looking up Kanji ).
