Beyond Boundaries – Anime Review!

Oftentimes, we read reviews so we can get an idea of ​​what the anime is all about. On this basis, we decide whether to watch the anime or not. So in this post, we are going to review the anime called “Beyond the Boundary” also known as “Kyoukai no Kanata” in Japanese. Beyond the Boundary is a Japanese light novel series written by Nagumo Tori and illustrated by Tomoyo Kamui. Kyoto Animation helped the series reach its audience in many ways; From publishing light novel series to anime production.

The anime had a very small 12-episode series in fall 2013 under the direction of Taichi Ishidate. Furthermore, there are two Kyoto animation films as well. I think this is the technical information for the Kyoukai no Kanata series. So without further ado, let’s take a look at what the story is in the Beyond The Boundary anime, and then we’ll review it.


There is no exception to the plot, just a group of teenagers trying to save the world from monsters. Mirai Koriyama is a descendant of the World Warriors spirit and a high school student. She could use her blood to forge a weapon like a sword. Being a world spirit warrior, she has a mission to save the world by hunting down “youmu” (creatures made up of negative human emotions). Once, while she was on the roof of the school, a curious man, Akihito Kanbara, appears to be a rare, half-Yumu, half-human breed. The first thing Mirai does is kill Akihito with her sword after tasking him with killing the day. However, Akihito is immortal and cannot be killed.

Beyond Borders – review

Let’s start our review of Beyond The Boundary or Kyoukai no Kanata, shall we? The first thing that happens in the anime is that our characters are trying to kill each other. However, one might assume that they drift apart after trying to kill each other, but they form a friendship. The reason is that the male protagonist has a fetish for girls with glasses. Although Akihito is immortal, he was far too elusive for the show. This style is followed in anime in general. The plot is not very original, but it will keep you entertained throughout 12 episodes.

The mix of life segments, comedy, paranormal, and action is done very well. While one would never complain about the characters and their development, and with an otaku who likes to see a cute girl in glasses, there are some problems with how the plots are presented in the anime. There are very few occasions when the plot is explained in the show. Otherwise, there are some things that will never be explained. There are specific episodes in the anime that seem to stretch. Although not a bad thing but for a movie with 12 episodes, the episode extension might seem irrelevant.

Another thing this anime is about is the fetish of girls. Not only does the male protagonist have a fetish for the girl, but his father also. His father is a youmo who is married to a woman who loves to disguise. Do I need more talk? Furthermore, there is another male character of importance who represents the entire otaku culture with affection for his sister. Although the plot can be confusing at times, you will love the animation and the connection of the characters.
