  • Bittersweet but just right
    To put it simply this anime is bittersweet. It's short but gives you everything you want out a gorgeously drawn artstyle, likable characters, and great moments. This anime is sweet but not too much. I enjoyed this much more than I thought I would. 10/10 would recommend easily.

  • Best anime ever!!!!!
    This is by far my favorite anime. It had everything, action, comedy, cute girls with glasses, and an awesome story. So many things could happen in this universe that I'm surprised it's only 12 episodes. If a movie would come out, I would be sooooooooooo happy. I wish it were longer!

  • Good anime - for the first 8-10 episodes I believe
    It was really a nice watch - not too interesting for me when I got to the last 2 episodes. I would still recommend it. It has the making of a really good anime except for the ending - feels rushed - too much issues unresolved. I wish it was a better ending then 5 stars would have been justified.

    But just like my other reviews, this is just my personal opinion - people have different tastes and ...

    Good Characters Meet Awful Pacing
    At the time of this review, BTB is in the process of being rereleased as two movies, one of them a compilation of the series, the other a sequel to follow up on it. It seems, then, that it has acquired a following, perhaps because it comes from Kyoto Animation, but the series itself is, in all honesty, a mess. There are potentially great characters here, almost all of them memorable designs ...

  • Eh it was alright...
    the only reason i gave it a 3 is because the art work was extraordinary! The art was beautiful and and that part of this anime deserves 5/5 stars, but the story line was not that interesting and was simply predictable so id rate that 2/5. Hiromi is the main reason I continued watching he is adorable.

  • Good show with a lot of heart
    Fantastic, high-quality animation and a great balance of humour, action and drama make this series a must-watch. There is a sincerity to the writing that makes the characters and their conflicts feel important. Only a dozen episodes long, Beyond the Boundary doesn't overstay its welcome and has a satisfying conclusion. The beautiful and emotionally intense final arc to the series is what makes it ...

  • Feelsy, But Well Worth It
    Beyond the Boundary pulled me in by having the main character being stabbed in the first 2 minutes. The story moved along at a nice pace, as well as ending not too quickly, which I feel a lot of series tend to do. I loved the plot and how everything unfolded. Solid series overall.

  • Loved it from start to finish!
    A beautiful tale of friendships, heart ache, tragedy and love. Totally not what I was expecting when I clicked on it, but I enjoyed every moment...even the ones that made me cry. All of the characters are likable for their own reasons giving this show a strong cast to boot. I laughed, I cheered, and I sobbed. Two Thumbs up from TheNatchan!

  • I'm not good at making titles
    Beyond the Boundary is my favorite anime. It has beautiful animation and music. The characters are wonderful and interesting. I've heard a lot of people saying that the story is confusing, but I don't understand why. The show only tells you what you need to know, it's a character driven story. Even with the limited information that you get, it's still an interesting world.

  • Amazing! Definitely worth Watching!
    So, I absolutely loved this anime. I typically don't watch much anime -- I suppose I am picky about what I watch and it's hard for me to find a show that hooks me -- I suppose it is the ridiculously long arc that could be compressed into 1/4 of the episodes. Beyond the Boundary is fast paced, but not too fast. I thought the animation was beautiful and I loved the story which had me laughing and ...
