  • The series is regarded as being set in an alternate parallel universe to TYPE-MOON's other series, Tsukihime and Fate/stay night, which make references to Kara no Kyoukai. The protagonist of the series, Shiki Ryougi, possesses the same abilities as Tsukihime's protagonist, Shiki Tohno, and Aoko Aozaki's sister Touko Aozaki is a major character. In Fate/stay night, Touko plays a small role in one ending, although she is not directly named.
  • One of the first installations of the Nasuverse and the spiritual precursor of both Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night. The story is centered on Ryougi Shiki, a girl who, after having a near-death experience, can see the lines of death. With these Mystic Eyes of Death perception she can kill anything with just a simple knife. She's working under Touko Aozaki and solves various Magic-related mysteries. The originally novel series got adapted into a series of anime movies and it ended just recently (2007-2010). Unlike the anime versions of Tsukihime and Fate/Stay Night, the movies are made by Ufotable.
  • Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners ("The Edge of Emptiness"/"Empty Boundaries") is a novel by Kinoko Nasu of TYPE-MOON/Notes fame; however, it was written before he became involved in the Visual Novel business. While considered by many to be the prototype of Tsukihime, it is much, MUCH more complex, sometimes to the point of being Mind Screw. So much so that some people don't want to accept that they are related at all, other than the fact that they are made by the same people.

  • Kara no Kyoukai: The Garden of Sinners ("The Edge of Emptiness"/"Empty Boundaries") is a novel by Kinoko Nasu of TYPE-MOON/Notes fame; however, it was written before he became involved in the Visual Novel business.

So much so that some people don't want to accept that they are related at all, other than the fact that they are made by the same people. Shiki Ryougi is a girl who grew up in a family imbued with supernatural powers. In particular, certain members possess something close to dual personalities; the "male" and "female" sides, who are aware of each other, are both conscious, and essentially the same person with different qualities. This dual consciousness combined with her upbringing has led her to reject other human beings. When she was in high school, she met a caring classmate, Mikiya Kokutou. During this time, murders are occurring throughout the city, and one night, Mikiya happens upon Shiki standing over a corpse, knife in hand. Despite this scene, Mikiya believes that Shiki couldn't have killed that person. Slowly, Mikiya creeps into Shiki's life, until Mikiya grows too close to her. June 1998. Shiki Ryougi wakes up from a coma; her eyes are bandaged. In her mind, she feels only " "--utter void. Her memories are a blur, and she feels disconnected from them, as though they are not her own. Her doctor tells her that it was a car accident. She wants to be rid of those eyes; eyes that stare into the void. A woman stops her, saying that they are "too wasteful to destroy"; after all, they are the Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. Kara no Kyoukai follows Shiki and the Garan-no-dou detective agency as they meet various, seemingly unconnected aberrations occurring within the city which seem to have something bigger behind them than it first appears. It is one of the earliest works within the Nasuverse, and as such also introduces most of The Verse's fundamental concepts, including souls, Akasha, Counter Force, Magic and Magecraft, and Origin.
