I have never had an MKV that XBMC can't play and my library is now approaching 1000 films and god knows how many tv shows all in the MKV format.
That being said MKV is just a container, these files that wont play wouldn't be anime videos would they? Anime files are notorious for using obscure codecs.
Also I'd suggest installing media info lite
Code:

once installed right clicking over the bad files will display all the relevant codec information that you can post up to help diagnose what might be wrong with them and XBMC playback
