Kara no Kyokai movie

That's what Tsukihime was based off right? The designs are obviously TYPE-MOON.

Yeah, it's often called Tsukihime's prototype.

I ripped the preview from stream, but it's encoded on WMV9 format. Anyone can help me convert it? @_@ I tried a lot of things but it seems no matter what I use the header for the video is corrupt.

Although I was able to watch it in WMP... ._."

You can download the trailer here: http://stage6.divx.com/Anime-PV/video/1 ... oukai---PV

It's in Divx format.

Ugh, I wish Kyoto Animation would put on hold Key's games for a while and do some remakes for Type Moon. ufotable doesn't seem to have an uber track record either.

Looks good. I'll def watch it when it goes out. Hope they get a decent composer for that too as in some cases the OST makes up for the shortcomings.

is there already something known about which part of the story they're gonna show? I doubt the movie has enough time for all stories, unless they;re gonna rush it. I also wonder about the chronology of the movie, again I doubt they're gonna follow the same one as the novel, at least not in that detail. Also, I wonder if the stories will be tuned down a little bit :] (I seem to wonder and doubt alot -_-;;)

Might give a whole new look on the story, or it might retell the story. Atmosphere would probably be the thing that should set it apart from the novel. although I'd much rather finish reading the novel then watching the move, it could be something to look forward to ^^.

Actually it's going to be 7 movies I believe. Not just one. So it will cover the whole book.

Wiki says;
The series is also slated to be adapted into an upcoming anime movie divided into 7 chapters, set to be animated by ufotable. The first chapter will be released in early winter 2007 at the cinema Theatres Shinjuku.

Must be something like 20 minute chapters then. Seems like something they could use to milk a profit.

I really doubt it will be a set of 20 minute chapters. That would be a supreme waste of money to bother with a theatre release per chapter when theyre not even a half hour long.

I'd expect each chapter to be at LEAST 45 minutes long if not more.

They can't possibly be 20 minutes each. Anime episodes are longer! I hope they're going straight to DVD's. (Just because people not in Japan will get them faster.)

Yep, seven chapters, each corresponding to a chapter of the book. Chapter " " (blank) has apparently been officially pronounced unmovie-fiable.

Chapters:
1. Fukan Fuukei = A Scene from Above
2. Satsujin Kousatsu (Zen) = An Insight into Murder (First Half)
3. Tsuukaku Zanryuu = The Remnance of Pain
4. Garan No Dou = Cathedral Cave / An Empty Space [<- characteristic wordplay]
5. Mujun Rasen = Spiral Contradiction
6. Boukyaku Rokuon = Recording Forgetting
7. Satsujin Kousatsu (Kou) = An Insight into Murder (Second Half)

If my memory is correct each chapter does form an episode, with a beginning and and end, so it's definitely going to be something more than one movie chopped into seven parts for better marketing.

I am definitely going to see this one. Wonder if I can get my old friend in high school to tag along. The viewings are supposedly uber late but that's never been a problem =3

*edit*
You know, because I have nothing better to do with my time, being a hikikomori NEET, I'll translate the episode synopsis' I found on the typemoon page here: http://www.typemoon.org/kara/main.html Excuse my broken English and my less than poetic way with words.

and I’m sure her body was a sword.

Maaya Sakamoto (Aura in .hack) as as Shiki Ryogi
Rie Tanaka (Morgana in .hack, Suigintou in RM) as Kirie Fujo

And guess who's doing the music for this...Yup, that's right. Yuki Kajiura! The movies are now officially guaranteed to be good =)

edit: Good lord the rest of the cast is like the all-star team as well O.O

Good lord they're pulling in the big names. O_o Sakamoto Maaya did the OP for RahXephon too, yah? But yes, Kajiura Yuki is definitely going to make this a good one. :)
