Just as a quick review of what I think about this second part:
- the story is straight forward, explains pretty much every "mystery" the first part set up
- feels like there's slightly less action, but definitely more story telling
- still beautiful graphic, great action and exceptional music score
I can't really think of any cons about the movie. Yet the ending is somewhat a let down. It is a great closure, but it just feels like there should be more.
Karas absolutely has the potential to be made into a series, in which case the audience coule have a better chance to fully appreciate the story. I guess my disappointing feeling came from the fact that a story with such potential to have deep characters development and complex story line is squeezed into a three hours movie.
Karas, nonetheless, is a great anime that should not be missed by anime fans. The first part (the prophecy) definitely requires a bit thinking, but if you can overcome it you'll find yourself enjoying one of the best action animes.
The action (admit it, is there another primary reason to have watched Karas?) is nearly nonexistent. What little action does occur happens like it does in most other mundane anime: Big, dusty explosions that conceal all vision, single sword strokes, etc. The elaborateness of the fight scenes is completely gone.
The graphic quality changes from the first one too, and not for the better. The superb blending between CG and hand drawing that made the first one so beautiful is markedly gone. You end up with an awkward non(mix) of CG and hand drawings, with the hand drawings resembling typical anime (though in the upper tier) and CG reminiscent of Saturday morning cartoons like Beast Machines. And after watching The Prophecy, that's a letdown.
Basically, Karas: The Prophecy (the first volume) is an exceptional anime. Karas: The Revelation is just anime.
1. Story - the story is pretty interesting for what it is. Demons and humans have a clash of sorts and Karas basically keeps the peace. The characters are interesting, the main character himself is especially mysterious and you can ally feel the characters feelings.
2. Animation - Beyond words! I cannot be more impressed. When I saw Final Fantasy XII I almost soiled myself, but Karas...In the words of Neo from the Matrix "Woah" The integration of 3d animation with 2d animation is nearly seemless, not to mention the combat in the series. I mean Newton, Einstein, and Boyle have to be rolling in their grave because of the physics defying action. The studio also brings in new concepts of speed and strength, and a new way to exemplify them.
Overall this was an amazing anime and I DEMAND A SERIES OR ANOTHER MOVIE POST HASTE!!!
