It's clear from the anime that it exists. Some of the characters from the main series are there. As close as I can tell, it's just a side series.

So why do hardcore Type-Moon fans say with resolve that Kara no Kyoukai is not a Type-Moon anime or that it does not exist to them?

    Are you sure you aren't thinking of Tsukihime? I've never heard this about KnK – atlantiza Jul 16 '13 at 21:33
  • Possibly, I know that my friend and I were discussing it on G+ a while back. I could be wrong? – Zilvarael Jul 16 '13 at 21:35

    Maybe. It's the Tsukihime anime that is deemed to not exist, due to how it cuts out a lot of the best parts of the source material. Also, manfaces. – Mark M Jul 17 '13 at 3:30
  • @MarkM just want to add that the Tsukihime Anime follows closely to the Arcuied Route, it does cut out a couple of parts but it's more faithful to the route than the Fate/Stay Night Anime following the Fate Route, people just say that the Tsukihime Anime doesn't exists because it's not considered cannon – Memor-X Dec 24 '13 at 5:18
  • Related, since this question was seemingly based on a false premise: Why is it said that the Tsukihime anime “does not exist”?. Googling about this, I didn't find any articles/reviews/forums/debates that mention this. – Aki Tanaka Dec 20 '17 at 8:15

Kara no Kyoukai, like other Type-Moon series exist in as part of the same multi-verse. While not in the same universe as Fate or Tsukihime, they exist as an alternate universe, like Fate/Extra and Fate/kaleid liner. The characters could in theory meet one another... if the circumstances are deemed right.

Canaan, however is not part of the this multiverse.
