Beyond the Boundary

30 minutes

One day, high school student Akihito Kanbara instinctively goes to save his fellow schoolmate, Mirai Kuriyama, from committing suicide. Following his pleas, Mirai suddenly stabs Akihito with a sword formed out of her own blood and is shocked to discover that Akihito is an immortal "half-youmu"—the offspring of a supernatural creature called a youmu and a human. After learning that Mirai is a Spirit World Warrior —specialists who protect humans from being affected by youmu—and the last surviving member of her spirit hunting clan, their lives become intertwined as Akihito seeks to help Mirai gain the confidence to kill youmu so that she may stop attempting to kill him as practice. In Beyond the Boundary, youmu are supernatural creatures that appear throughout the series and can only be seen by those with a supernatural affinity. They are said to be the physical materialization of human animosity such as negative emotions including hatred, jealousy and malice and therefore as long as humans exist, youmu will continue to exist. They can exist in many types of shapes and forms with some even having a human appearance. There are also rare cases when a youmu and a human mate and produce offspring called Half-Youmu. Most youmu are relatively docile and coexist with humans without them even aware of their presence. However, there are times when a youmu's behavior upsets the balance, so the Spirit World Warriors are sent in to kill them. Upon death, a youmu produces a Youmu Stone which can be appraised and traded, hence providing a source of income for a Spirit World Warrior.

Bundled with the seventh Blue-Ray/DVD volume of Kyoukai no Kanata. Episode 0 takes place two years prior to the TV series when the Nase siblings meet Akihito for the first time in a mission for Hiroomi. Mitsuki follows her brother on this mission and their goal is to subjugate Akihito.
As Mirai and Akihito reunite, Izumi demands that Yayoi tell her exactly what a half-youmu is. However Yayoi makes a quick escape after warning them of the Society's movement. At the same time Akihito uses his youmu powers to defend from the Beyond the Boundary's attacks before he and Mirai make their way to its core. Elsewhere, Shizuku, Sakura, Hiroomi, Mitsuki and Izumi confront Miroku, however he seals himself and Izumi inside a barrier to prevent outside interference. Back in the Mirror World, Mirai and Akihito just narrowly reach the Beyond the Boundary's core where Mirai manages to impale it with her sword. Meanwhile, Hiroomi enters Miroku's barrier and learns that both Miroku and Izumi harbor youmu within their bodies in addition that Izumi isn't the person she claims to be. Izumi then impales Miroku with her spear who seemingly self destructs. Meanwhile, Akihito and Mirai face and overcome their dark memories inside the Beyond the Boundary's core and find themselves in a ferocious battle against an army of youmu. Finally, as the Beyond the Boundary emerges, Akihito beats it into submission and reabsorbs it back into his body. With the Beyond the Boundary gone, the Mirror World and Mirai begin disappearing and Mirai and Akihito share a tender moment before she disappears. Sometime later the world returns to normal, with the Beyond the Boundary incident being covered up and Hiroomi taking over the Nase clan. As Akihito laments on a life without Mirai, he suddenly runs toward the school roof when her ring disappears and reunites with her. After declaring his feelings for her in his own way, Akihito returns Mirai's red rimmed glasses.
