HIDIVE describes Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Past as:
In this compilation film of the original TV series, Mirai Kuriyama meets a half-human, half-yomu immortal named Akihito Kanbara. In the invisible war between yomu and Spirit Warriors, two unlikely allies find themselves at the boundary between both worlds. With her power to manipulate her blood, Mirai finds herself tangled in a war she didn’t ask for, but ultimately can’t avoid…
They describe Beyond the Boundary -I’LL BE HERE- Future as:
Thanks to her amnesia, Mirai Kuriyama finally has a chance to pursue a life free of the pain of her past. Akihito, meanwhile, finds himself pushing her away to protect her from her memories and from the war with the yomu. Despite feeling an attraction to him, Mirai finds herself at a crossroads: embrace her painful history, or lose what’s important in her present forever.
