KyoAni’s Kyoukai no Kanata Slated for Fall 2013
Over the past few days, the official site for Kyoukai no Kanata was the host of an “enigmatic” countdown, which led up to today’s announcement of Kyoukai no Kanata’s release this October.
As usual, the official site is filled with information regarding the storyline, staff/cast, and characters. Nothing really new or interesting. I was hoping that KyoAni would at least release a new PV. But alas, my hopes were dashed. Regardless, it’s quite refreshing to see that for once, KyoAni is stepping outside of its comfort zone and attempting a genre other than Romance+School+Slice of Life.
Another action/fantasy series from KyoAni has been my fanboy dream for quite some time, and I’m extremely pumped up for the fall season now. Just think about the tremendous amount of growth that KyoAni has had within the past decade or so. Full Metal Panic! was a masterpiece in its own right, but imagine what kinds of amazing battle sequences KyoAni can pull off now with its tremendous talent/budget. We got a small taste in Chu2Koi, but with Kyoukai no Kanata, hopefully we’ll be given the full dish.
You can bet your ass that I’ll be impatiently counting down the days till Kyoukai no Kanata airs. But, at least I’ll have Monogatari to tide me over till then.
