Kyousougiga (2012)

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 read more

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 read more

Kyousougiga is definitely a piece of work, but I might have to warn you that it may not seem to be very coherent at first. The ONAs definitely aren't very coherent, but having watched them a few times, I can say that the story means very little. This kind of thing does apply to a lot of slice-of-life, where the episodes stand alone and the anime is more centered around other elements.

You might be confused as to why I rate it so high. For an anime that wasn't meant to have a real coherent story at first, they did a read more

Recommendations

A series of connecting outlandish characters and events, filled with chaotic supernatural happenings and warm feelings of friends and family.
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.
Supernatural happenings and the importance of connections with people abound.
Colourful and at times nonsensical anime about the relationship between demons and the human world, chock full of references to Japanese mythology and starring a mysterious protagonist who is not what they appear. The animation is very high quality, especially in action scenes, and there's always something to look at due to the rich art styles. While Mononoke is a historical series with a set of goals for each arc, and Kyousogiga is set in the modern era and depicts random events, the elements of mystery and madness tie them together and make them, if nothing else, a joy to experience.
A group of young protagonists get caught up in an extended chase sequence, with demonic foes and an overarching mystery behind it all.
Quirky supernatural humour with some action thrown in. It's hard not to draw parallels between Yuuko and Lady Koto.
