Kyôkai no Kanata: kako-hen (2015)

As the film is a direct sequel, this review contains spoilers for the TV series

The first part of a two-part movie. The story is a recap of the TV series.

Beyond the Boundary (Japanese: 境界の彼方 Hepburn: Kyōkai no Kanata) is a Japanese light novel series written by Nagomu Torii, with illustrations by Tomoyo Kamoi. The work won an honorable mention in the Kyoto Animation Award competition in 2011. Kyoto Animation has published three volumes since June 2012. An anime television series adaptation, produced by Kyoto Animation, aired in Japan between October and December 2013. An original video animation episode was released in July 2014. A two-part anime film project premiered in March and April 2015.

The Beyond the Boundary anime series ends on a happy note. After taking the monstrous force known as “Beyond the Boundary” back into his body, series lead Akihito resigns himself to a world without Mirai, the girl he loves—only to have her reappear suddenly and give the appearance that everything will turn out alright. But as we learn in this film’s major twist, while that may have been a happy moment, it was actually far from a happy ending.

While Mirai has indeed been resurrected, she has no memory of any events of her life before the final moments of the series. She has no idea who the boy standing before her is or why he seems crushed when she says she doesn’t know him.

Thus comes the film’s major dilemma: Is it better to remember or forget?

The story takes place one year after the TV series. Akihito, half human and half youmu, fights against a new threat that intends on seeking Mirai whilst protecting his closest friends.
