  • Had to Come Back Just to Write a Review
    This show is fantastic, and with all the recent shows coming out, I felt the need to dig this one out. (Why is this show so underrated??)

    The story is touching.
    The art is vibrant.
    The characters are memorable.

    If you want a fantastic show, give this one a try. Can't hurt.

  • A Modern Masterpiece
    You can tell that this is Rie Matsumoto's baby from all aspects; the careful and intricate writing, the character designs- everything.

    OF all the anime being called underrated, I would say that doesn't fit any anime more than Kyousougiga. It's not for everyone, but it is a gem nonetheless.

    If you are open to trying something different, please give this one a shot, I BEG you, it deserves more ...

  • Worth Sticking Around to the End
    First off, this anime was visually stunning. The animation was beautiful but also stood out by strongly setting an interesting/off-beat tone for the anime as a whole. As for the story and characters, they were unique and interesting but much of the time it felt like everything was extremely disjointed (though even this seemed to be done purposely when everything was tied together in the end). ...

  • Power of Friendship!
    The anime started out great but killed itself the way Myoue tried to do after losing his parents. Everything at the end was solved by "oh never mind Im all of a sudden all powerful now lol."

    The best thing I can say was that the build was suspenseful, but again the climax was just a fart.

  • The endearing tale of a unique family
    For me it's difficult to talk about this show in the same way that it was difficult to make sense out of it, but there's a very apropriate description that I've read somewhere on the internet while discussing the show, during the time it was airing...this anime is not meant to be understood, but rather felt. As such this show is more than a lineal narration of events, but instead an experience ...

  • One of the best anime you'll ever watch.
    Don't just watch the first episode. Watch all of it. Confusing at first, yes. But you'll eventually realize that every single episode ties in with the rest of the other episodes; which is amazing and so worthwhile. This anime has got everything I've ever wanted in an anime making it one of the best of the best in my anime list.

    Romance ✓
    Fighting scenes ✓
    Good storyline ✓
    Awesome supporting ...

  • Deep, and very poetic
    Kyousougiga is a discussion of values, maturation and transformance. It's deep, poetic and beautiful, and often suprisingly violent (no gore). The principal characters are members of a 'family' created by the mind and imagination of an artistic Buddhist monk, living in a 'world' also of his creation... or not. The story moves back and forth between this ideal alternate reality and the one we all ...

  • Don't hesitate, it's beautiful and fun.
    Commit to the universe and this show is a wild ride. It's bold, but ridiculous art style draws you into the dream world these artists bring to life. Don't both if you want something that follows any normal plot conventions, or is packed with fight scenes. Brilliant, but erratic I'd say it's well worth the time I spent on the 10 episodes.

  • Stop reading reviews and watch it already!
    This is one of those rare treats: you click on episode 1 with no real expectations and only the foggiest idea what the series is about, and an hour later you know you've found a true gem.

    To quickly clear up some confusion: the "preview" episode 0 should be watched first. It will confuse you. It will give you peaks at later events in the series. That's ok.

    A few things really stand out: ...
