Characters & Voice Actors
Kyousougiga II is not your normal anime. The sequel to the crazy yet spectacular ONA from last year manages to still carry its charm throughout the series while answering some key questions that arose from watching the last ONA.
Story: (+/-) [1 MAL Point]
If you’re someone who watch the prequel and is hoping that watching the sequel will answer some of your questions, then you’re in the wrong boat. There is no real plot in Kyousougiga II as each episode is quite short and focuses on a different character for the remainder of the screen time. Yet, each episode carries itself well as we learn more about the characters and the mystery that surrounds them.
The last episode was the strongest of these 5 episodes. As it helps answer the biggest question of how did the world of Kyousogiga II came to be. And if you’re wondering if this is the end to the series, fear not it’s not. As the last 2 lines of dialogue of the series, supports the idea of a sequel in the making.
Characters: (+) [2 MAL POINT]
The crazy cast that made the 1st Kyousogiga original is back for more action. As stated in the story section, this series focuses more on the characters and the mysteries that surround them. Each character is original and unique with their personalities being capture well by their voice actors.
The Monk [not Myoue] that reoccurs throughout the series remains to be the biggest influence of all the characters within the story. Hopefully he’ll be focus on more in depth in the future.
Art: (+) [2 MAL POINT]
The same colorful art that was use in the prequel still remains here. Toei Animation does a good job in capturing the world of Kyousogiga by combining the scenery of Kyoto with the bright colors that are the spirits in which form “Mirror Kyoto”. The brief scenes of action are well drawn out. You can tell the animators wanted to create a well flesh world that house the Kyousogiga crew.
Sound: (+) [2 MAL POINT]
The soundtrack of Kyousogiga II is quite mix as it is able to capture any scene quite masterfully.
Got a crazy chase scene? Check!
Do you have strange phenomenon and wanting to focus on them briefly? Check!
Have a connection bond between two characters? Check!
It really is indeed mix and pleasant to listen to. There is no OP song to
Kyousogiga but it does have 5 different ED songs for each episode which leave the episodes on a good note and clearly reflect on what happen during that episode.
Enjoyment: (+) [2 MAL POINT]
In the end, Kyousogiga II is a fun little anime. Even though not all answers of the plot were answer, the world of Kyousogiga carries some of unique characters and art in anime history aiding with a beautiful soundtrack. This is not your generic anime. This is anime that receives all the praise from me for being different.
If you watch the 1st ONA then you should take your time to watch the sequel. You will not be disappointed. If you are, then this is not your type of anime as all anime is view differently among the community.
After seeing the super fast paced prequel or original/beginning of this anime,(no idea how to organize them on MAL since the production is all out of order); I was readily excited to view more of the same. Unfortunately I got something different.
The plot seems to be in each episode standalone of whacky happenings that lead to no where and nothing. There is no set up, no movement, just random senseless activities. I tried my best to put pieces together, but nothing came up. It wasn't a rubix cube and none of the pieces fit. So what did I figure? Nothing. All this anime has become is an excuse to make whacky experimental shorts. No substance at all. I was left drawing blanks left and right. So what do I give something that isn't there?
Story ?/10 still waiting I suppose
The art style and color scheme is what drew me in with the previous production along with somewhat of a plot. But really, I loved the original and this as well for its art. It was zany and had vibrant sequences as well as cut edge angles and sequences. The colors were far out of the norm that you typically get with an standard anime presentation. I'm a fan of zany and art house animation so I kept on going for that sake.
I've actually been reading the manga and it actually had some sensibility in it as far as the plot went. The characters actually had a purpose and the setting was somewhat interesting, but none of that transferred over into the anime. They do nothing here. So they feel as though they just are.
In the end the only reason I even stuck around with this was the hopes that the plot I had previously read in the manga would eventually develop. But sadly it never did. I rate this purely off of my enjoyment for zany art house animation and the silliness presented. I never felt like the producers made sense of the series and I've no idea what they were trying to present. If it is just the animation,(which I truly feel it is); then they have succeeded in that light. I'd recommend the manga as it has very sharp art style even better than the anime. I just hope more chapters are made because there is a plot for it.
Both shows are presented in a strange, nonsensical manner, with a vague "plot" (that may not make much sense on the surface) and lots of crazy action. Both worlds are quite interesting, though not looked upon as much as the scenarios given to the audience.
They both have really good budget towards action scenes in various situations, whilst being creative and experimental with the animation and being supported in unique atmospheres in the world the show is presented in (though both have different atmospheres, e.g colour palettes, music). If you enjoy the wackiness style of one of them, the other should be quite enjoyable too.
Also both are pretty short, but FLCL is twice as long as Kyousougiga 1 and 2 together.
