Since the other answers don't appear to address Mirai Fukuin, I will do that here. First, you must watch Kara no Kyoukai in release order. That is, 1 through 7 in numerical order, then the epilogue, followed by Mirai Fukuin, and finally Mirai Fukuin: Extra Chorus (a half-hour bonus episode included with the BD/DVD release of Mirai Fukuin). To do otherwise ...

In Kite, it's merely a parody reference, with the "Häagen Kazs" name. In Kite Liberator, it's also a parody, with the "Hëegen-Gezs" name (Vanilla flavor in this case). The ice cream is prominently stated to be Häagen-Dazs in both the Kara no Kyoukai movies and the original novel. Shiki and her fridge can also be seen with several bottles of Volvic water. ...

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.

The kanji in Mana's name, 未那, can be read "Mina" or "Mana" depending on how you read the characters (on'yomi vs kun'yomi, or any combination of the two). The meaning that makes sense to me is that her name is derived from 末那識 (manashiki), Manas-vijnana: is the seventh of the eight consciousnesses as taught in Yogacara and Zen Buddhism, the higher ...

Without a concept of death, Mystic Eyes of Death Perception are useless. They work on the basis that death is an intrinsic part of life, as a living being is meant to end at some point, the concept of death is already inside them, which is what the MEoDP bring about. From Tsukihime Dokuhon PlusPeriod - TSUKIHIME Dictionary: Mystic Eyes of Death Perception [...

It is probably related to the fact that "shi" is death in Japanese. The kanji for death is "死", however, which does not appear in any of the names of characters you listed. The word would still be associated with death, (as shown by the tetraphobia that appears throughout Japan). Those characters are all from Type-Moon series, also, so the connection may ...

Weirdly enough, Araya must, in fact, be referring to the fact that "Lio" is one English letter away from "lion". This has to be the case because "lion" in Japanese is 獅子 shishi, which bears no resemblance whatsoever to Shirazumi's name. Of course, Araya should be fluent in English, having lived at the Clock Tower in London for some years, so it's not that ...

Seems like only the first 4 movies are out of chronological order. To watch it in chronological order you would have to watch it like this: Kara no Kyoukai 2: Satsujin Kousatsu (Part 1) (1995-1996) Kara no Kyoukai 4: Garan no Dou (June 1998) Kara no Kyoukai 3: Tsuukaku Zanryuu (July 1998) Kara no Kyoukai 1: Fukan Fuukei (September 1998) Kara no Kyoukai 5: ...

It depends on what you mean by "inanimate." Generally, intangible objects like words cannot be "killed" because they do not exist. A phenomenon like a storm cannot be killed, but the particular event (rain/wind/clouds) can be dispersed. In the Tsukihime Dokuhon Plus Period book, Nasu makes mention that: Ryougi's Shiki Mystic Eyes is superior to Tohno'...

From the Type-Moon Wiki the chapters of the light novel are: Chapter 1 – Overlooking the Scenery (俯瞰風景, Fukan Fuukei) Thanatos Chapter 2 – Murder Speculation (Part 1) (殺人考察(前), Satsujin Kousatsu (Zen)) …and nothing heart. Chapter 3 – Remaining Sense of Pain (痛覚残留, Tsuukaku Zanryuu) ever cry, never life. Chapter 4 – The Hollow Shrine (伽藍の洞, Garan no Dou) ...

From the novel, the doctor said that Shiki jumped the instant before the collision, so there wasn't much physical injury. The head experienced some collision thus put her into a coma. Aozaki also states later that SHIKI died spiritually. From the narrative it seemed that SHIKI died during the collision. At the end of the chapter, Shiki herself states that ...

Well, yes (...mostly). It wouldn't be a particularly good series if it didn't. The big thing to note is that the movies aren't in chronological order - movie #1 is set after some of the later ones. It starts in medias res, in other words. If you really want to find out what the chronological order is, see the answers to this question: How do I watch Kara ...

although this a question from 3 years ago but i just finished watching entire Kara no Kyoukai Series. i just conclude that the guy in front of mitsuru that appears as a 'loan sharks' is actually Shiki's Bodyguard.

This guy's simply the loan shark that Mitsuru was dealing with. He also stands up at attention when Ryougi, the family head, walks in, like an underling would do.
