Ratings & Reviews
Don't Miss Out On Owning This Masterpiece!
by Mr. Eclect
When Type Moon, Ufotable, and composer Yuki Kajiura get together, it's always magical, but 'Kara no Kyoukai'(aka 'The Garden of Sinners') film series is downright EPIC. This film series is easily Ufotable's greatest achievement animation-wise--and Lord knows they've done great stuff since--it has a great storyline, and despite its dark horror/thriller genre, it's also features a great love story: Shiki and Mikiya are one of the best couples in the history of anime. Yuki Kajiura outdid herself here; her best OST, plus she introduced the world to her vocal supergroup Kalafina, too. So if you can handle dark material, this is a Must -Own series!
It'd be 5 stars but the price is bad.
by Zachary Anderson.
The series of 8 movies is a masterpiece. I already have a limited edition version of this set but I'd purchase a second copy in an instant if aniplex didnt gouge the prices of their licensed products. If you have 250 to lay down, this is a must have to purchase.
An essential for the true otaku.
This is not a set or series for the casual, but for the true otaku. Aniplex of America is expensive, but then they also market anime in America more closely to how it's marketed in Japan, and for a seven movie set from them the price is not all that bad. I imported this from another place back when Right-Stuf didn't have it, and it was well worth the price. This is (so to speak) the continuation of Kino Nasu's Tsukihime visual novel. For the uninitiated that's the guy who created the Fate franchise. The animation is outstanding. The story is complex and requires true attention to follow it clearly. The box is very nice. If you're looking to step up from the casual shonen anime of your youth and take a bite of real fandom, then Garden of Sinners is a good first choice.
A Modern Classic Anime That Still Holds Its Own
by Pierre -
The first time I had heard about this anime was from a friend of mine who introduced me to the computer fighting game Melty Blood, after that it was the interactive eroge visual novel Tsukihime of which there was a short anime series based on the first story arc of the game. Kara no Kyoukai or as it is known to fans as the Garden of Sinners was more or less of a type of spin-off in which Tsukihime has a similar universe and yet there are references to certain characters fans of the "Nasu verse" as some people put it would pick up.
The art is amazing, the storytelling fascinating and the music is superb (nothing less from the amazing composer Yuki Kajiura and the trio known as Kalafina). One of the things that really caught my attention that occurred to me would require multiple viewings was the various sayings that Touko Aozaki kept bringing up in each chapter (the anime also had me look at things in a philosophical manner, if you're into that type of thinking).
Overshadowed by Fate, a rare masterpiece of the medium
by belteshazzar -
When I started my journey with the Fate series last year, I never imagined I would end up discovering this as well. The Garden of Sinners is a "sister" series to Fate, which was also created by Type-Moon. They exist in the same universe, but it has been completely overshadowed by the ginormous Fate franchise. I feel that anyone that considers themselves a fan of Type-Moon's work, heck, even just a fan of the medium, should give The Garden of Sinners a chance. I will say this: it is very much less accessible than the Fate series. As such, it will require multiple viewings to make full sense of it, but believe me, it's worth it. Next time you play FGO and see Shiki, it will be hard not to get a smile in your face. This is a true masterpiece, and another superb work from ufotable... which also animated the Fate series! Do yourself a favor and watch this.
Incredibly deep series
by Alex -
The Garden of Sinners is a masterclass in deep dialogue and creative style. Most of the dialogue will make you think a lot about many complex subjects that most media never touches. Pair that with some interesting pacing choices and you have a unique and incredible experience. Also, the films don’t go in chronological order but they are meant to be presented in this fashion. Ufotable also showcases their incredible CGI and lighting to make an atmosphere like no other. Plus, the art is very good for it’s time. On top of all that, Yuki Kajiura’s soundtrack is God tier. It’s a shame these films aren’t more popular in the west.
The blu ray release is great with promotional art and story summaries in the booklet. The art on everything is phenomenal and the box itself looks sleek. Btw the box has a gloss finish so it’s really hard to get out of the plastic wrap without cutting it. Overall, I highly recommend buying this set. It sure is a treat to own such a stunning series on blu ray.
An Agency Fixer Takes Point into Paranormal Investigations
by MKY -
Born from a clan of Demon Hunters, Shiki Ryougi is usually armed with a Tanto, but also wields a katana. With her 'Mystic Eyes' Shiki can see the perfect 'line of death' in any opponent in combat. She also operates for a Magus named Touko, along with deductive genius/friend Mikiya in dealing with the supernatural.
Ufotable produces an astonishing movie series that's graphic, mysterious, and confounding. The musical score is top notch, the background scenes are outstanding, and the combat sequences are visionary artistry. Because the movies aren't presented in chronological order, they can be very confusing to viewers. You can watch them in the correct order: Movie 2, Movie 4, Movie 3, Movie 1, Movie 5, Movie 6, and Movie 7 for the story to make more sense.
For mature audiences containing bloody/graphic/violence, and for Shiki's complex dual personality of 'Female Hunter' & 'Male Assassin' only enhancing the mystery behind her unusual powerful abilities.
A remarkable film collection!
Great, but it's not a complete collection.
by Planet godzilla -
The box is good, it's got all the movies in the main series and it even comes with a art book, but it doesn't have the "future gospel" movie or the short "extra chorus" which is a let down.
For $200 dollars it really should come with those side stories, especially since this is the only physical release the series has and the only other way to watch them is on crunchyroll which actually has the side stories but if your internet sucks(like mine) them that's not much of a option.
So other then not having the side content it's a perfect box set, but for that price it really should have the side stories
