Uchouten Kazoku, alternatively named The Eccentric Family, was a show which I had limited knowledge about, prior to delving into the pilot episode. It’s a show permeated with numerous unorthodox, or true to its name – eccentric elements, which were evident immediately through its visual style. Conventional it is not, and luckily, despite its flaws, the pleasures I’ve derived from this show have proven that the show is not merely ostentatious with its flair.

The show’s protagonist is Shimogamo Yasaburou, belonging to the tanuki, who are, in Uchouten Kazoku’s setting, naturally adept shapeshifters. Tanuki live alongside the humans and tengu in the world, and we read more

Uchouten Kazoku and Bakemonogatari are two anime that are all about being extremely well-executed. Both feature brilliant characterization, wonderful art, and writing that skirts the line between comedy and drama in a way that really draws you into the lives of the characters.
I think that "family bonds" is one of the things which make these two quite similar with a quirky, normal, but different setting. Both are quite touching but also have their turn of fun. Similarly, they're also manageable in length and don't drag out, making it well paced and interesting.
