  • Essence of family is not always blood related
    This story may be a wild dimensional hopping acid trip visually, but the setting works for the world they are hidden in. It has great variety characters, god's, mad scientist, demon, priest, etc... With multitudes of emotional impact joy, sadness, hope , excitement, etc.. A unforgettable masterpiece with very bright vivid colors.

  • Excellent series; adding it to my DVD collection.
    This was an excellent series! Parts of the story were a little confusing, but the two x.5 episodes helped explain some things. Overall the story was excellent, the animation and music were fantastic! This is one I plan to keep on DVD. A heartwarming tale of a family that shouldn't exist asserting their right to. Definitely worth watching.

  • Unique and powerful? Check. Moved to tears? Check.
    EPISODE 0 is a synopsis of episodes 1-6. Either skip it or know that while its shows a lot of the basics of what happens it skips ALL the major story-building.

    The story has an amazing dichotomy of being about family and the full existential crisis of reality.
    Will everyone love it? No. However, I sure as hell did.
    Why might someone not like it? Maybe a little too existential at times. (By no ...

  • And Then the Story Really Started
    4 Star - Nice. I would watch this again or acknowledge in public that I'd seen it ( . . . maybe 3.5)

    This is one of those annoying plots that you can't fully review without spoiling everything that happens, because, even more so than most stories, how it's told is just as important as what it's saying. I love the direction, scene composition, even the title of the episodes (so random?). ...

  • #386. Eternal wonderland.
    Fleeing from the world's eyes, the priest Myoue and his anthropomorphic black rabbit wife Koto took their three children and fled into Myoue's creation, Looking Glass City. Eventually both Myoue and Koto vanish, leaving the responsibility of Looking Glass City to their children, this included passing down the name of Myoue to the youngest son, along with its duties. The eternal paper city sees ...

  • A definite yes - rewatchable, too! (no spoilers)
    Note - it's abundantly clear that the storyline was tweaked from the original idea after production/animation had begun - consequently, there are incongruencies in many scenes. They don't affect the 'main' anime all that much, but they do alienate Episode 0/Preview from the rest of the anime. Recommend only watching Episode 0 after finishing from Episode 1 ...

  • Absolutely amazing, and way too underrated
    Its zany, chaotic and charismatic in seemingly every possible way. Every single character is completely original. It's not afraid to be itself. It's completely different from any other anime I've seen, and I've been watching anime for the equivalent of half a year, each year. for 10 years. FYI: YOU NEED TO WATCH THE WHOLE THING TO FULLY APPRECIATE IT. It's absolutely stunning with its vibrant ...

  • 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). ...
