Kyoto Animation has announced their latest anime project “Kyoukai no Kanata“, with the confirmation announced on the official website.
KyoAni had been publishing the light novel series since last Jun. The series had received an honorable mention in the novel category of the Nagomu Torii’s Kyoto Animation Award.
The story follows a high school sophomore named Akihito Kanbara. Although the boy appears human, he is half yōmu and invulnerable to wounds because he can heal quickly. One day, Akihito meets freshman Mirai Kuriyama when it seems she is about to jump from the school rooftop. Mirai is isolated because of her ability to manipulate blood, which is unique even among members of the spirit world. Disturbing events begin to unfold after Akihito saves Mirai.
