As the title says, I saw episode 2 (or rather movie 2) of the much-lauded Kara no Kyoukai and it still sucked balls. Why do people like it? The art is average, save for some nice stills of backgrounds. The story is boring and the pace is turtle slow. The characters, Kokutou in particular, does not behave realistically. He is a psycho, far more so than Shiki. Shiki herself is alright, but nothing special. The good old ancient-family hidden-deadly-skill silent girl who learns the power of love via a caring normal person.
I really felt quite bored throughout, maybe except the part where Shiki was trying to kill Kokutou.
Let’s hope movie 3 will be better, it looks better in the preview already.
Can anyone tell me why the two movies so far are so highly praised?
