A Midsummer’s Oblivion Recording of SHINING FINGER

August 8, 2009 at 1:52 am 3 comments


I knew I should have seen it coming. No really.

I love the movies, really, they’re a blast to watch, even though there have been some… … … liberties taken with the original script. But this has got to be the most liberal take on the events of Oblivion Recording, a shocking twist from the first five movies, where the scenes of the novels were animated just as I’ve seen it in my head. And might I add, these scenes were grisly, edgy, dark, and not very forbidding.

Personally, I feel that Kara no Kyokai is extremely dark in nature, and while I do appreciate ufotable for trying to lighten the mood, but by doing so, they have destroyed the darkest, most tragic part of the book (Murder Speculation 2 notwithstanding, of course, Lio must kick the proverbial bucket.)

[HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS]

Oblivion Recording is dark, disturbing, and horribly tragic. Kurogiri Satsuki knows how to speak the Unified Langauge and took up magic because one day, he was kinda kidnapped by fairies and he killed them all. In doing so, he lost the ability to recall and recognize his own memories. And then his parents disowned him. Ouji learnt magic out of deep-seated guilt complex that sprung up from not being able to help her friend in her time of need. And she was attracted to Kurogiri Satsuki because she was SO RONERY.Kaori… …. you know what? Just read this. If I went on, I’d probably break my own heart.

Let’s just say because ufotable decided to make Oblivion Recording AZAKA AZAKA AZAKA MOERU WA YO. they pretty much rewrote Oblivion Recording. I’m extremely conflicted about this, since the movie isn’t bad, per se, but because the story is lost in doing so, I’m mad. Really angry.

Apologies for the IRC log, but that’s how I felt AFTER watching.

    I really liked the movie… But I did miss the darker parts of the story, which are the ones that made the story for me😦
