The Garden of Sinners: Watch Order for the Movie Series

Let’s talk about the “Sinner’s Garden” watch order. Kara No Kyoukai, also known as “The Garden of Sinners,” is a dark anime with a unique role of hope and light amid darkness. To add to the uniqueness, unlike other series, this anime is a movie series. Yes, the anime is not a 12 episode series with different seasons, it is more of a series of films. This way the audience can connect and better reflect on the events that are unfolding.

The overall theme of the anime is action, mystery, supernatural, and thriller, but when taken in depth the anime feels very stimulating and introspective. This is the kind of anime that will make you think about your own actions and morals. The story takes place in a parallel universe when disturbing events begin to take hold of Japan in 1998. After a little investigation, we find connections between all the businesses. The series follows the investigation of the cases as the mystery unfolds.

The light novel was written by Kinoko Nasu and later illustrated by Takashi Takeuchi. The studio that made the anime was Ufotable. Other notable animes from the same studio are Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba, God Eater, Fate / Zero, etc.
