After planning to rewatch and seeing the remix gate of seventh heaven. It made me curious, if the chronological timeline is quite clear, why they decide to kind of scramble the chronological order for 1st to 6th movie? Aside from the direction does it have any meaningful reasoning plot wise than to do it chronologically?
Kara no Kyoukai was designed to be out of order, just like the movie Memento was designed to go backwards.
I watched it chronologically once, but it doesn't work very well. Some of the slower movies are used to set the mood early on, putting them where they are supposed to go chronologically wrecks the flow.
