Kyoukai no Kanata Episode 10 - The Dream

Akihito isn't dead, but there is a bigger problem. The Kyoukai no Kanata is inside of Mirai as she tries to find a way to destroy its core.

Kyoukai no Kanata Episode 10

Morning after with Akihito? hehe
Woah what?!
LOL you M

That's where she was that one time!

And this time too




Akihito is shown alive right off the bat, but there is something more grave happening. Mirai had transferred the Kyoukai no Kanata inside her body, and is not trying to destroy its core. It's a very interesting turn of events, and this episode was executed rather well.

There were tons of hints and subtle events that people never really paid attention too and during this episode, everything was pieced together. All those times Mirai had secret meetings with Izumi was because Izumi had solely hired Mirai to kill Akihito. After getting too close, she resolved to saving Akihito as oppose to killing him while transferring the Kyoukai no Kanata inside her body. Izumi also looked like she did feel a little regret when it came to Mirai and her decision as she ultimately brought this upon her.

The way the flashbacks occurred flowed smoothly from the 6 months to present time and once we saw what had happened everything clicked. The one thing that I can say about Kyoukai no Kanata is that KyoAni tried to bring out the feels by the rushed kiss Mirai gave to Akihito. Sure she's a super adorable character, but I just wasn't attached to her like I should have been. Then there's Akihito who's presence and role is laughable. Neither these two had me going "aweeeee" but you could clearly see that KyoAni was trying to evoke feels. It's not like it had absolutley no effect, as I did get a bit tearyeyed from the fact that Mirai was disappearing. It actually reminded me of Angel Beats' ending where **SPOILER** Otonashi grasped for Kanade as she vanished..

Next episode it looks like Akihito will enter this world and save Mirai as she tries to destroy the core.  If they do destroy the Kyoukai no Kanata, does it leave a possible opening for 2nd season? The show is named after it after all..



  1. That was a good episode, I'm on the edge of my seat waiting till next week now.

    I gotta say though, truthfully, when Mitsuki was shown in her bikini, I totally forgot there were subs I was supposed to read. I just stared and stared. In the end I had to go back and re-watch that scene just so I could read what was said. And that screenshot you got, 'Rack Attack' lol that cracked me up!

  2. It was a great episode that really answered a lot of questions. As for Mitsuki in her was only the man thing to do. Safe to say I went back and watched that scene again multiple times xD She's just so...<33333333
