An intense Horror/Psychological/Mystery/Drama/Supernatural/Romance, that has great characters, animation and plot. It's a movie series made up of 7 movies. I don't give 10/10's very often but this definitely deserves it. Now this is something I recommend EVERYONE to watch.
The animation and the fight scenes are amazingly beautiful and so are the characters design. The story is built so that it kinda relies on the watcher but I found joy in unraveling what the author was trying to do.
The writing was good, if a little strange. Much of the speech was philosophical, and the movie makes fun of it by having a character refer to the themes as 'something from a cheap novel' but like everything else, the script served to enhance the tone, both where it was and wasn't there. The main character, Shiki, caught my heart the second I laid my eyes on her and never let go. She's intense, serious, but still very emotional. The supporting characters didn't play that big of a roll in the film, but none were unnecessary.

It might not be for people that don't like complex stories but this was an amazing watch and I would still recommend them to watch it.
WARNING: This movie series is very gruesome. Please be at least 16+ to watch this.
