Hidden within Kyoto is the "mirror capital" where youkai and humans live together and no one ever dies. It is protected by three people—Kurama, Yase, and Myoue—as they await the return of their parents, Myoue Jonin and Koto. One day, a young girl named Koto (same name, different spelling) and her little brothers A and Un wander into the city from a different dimension looking for her mother. A mecha-geek with red eyes, it's not immediately clear whether she's human or youkai. Her arrival upsets the long peace that had ruled the city.

A journey into Kyousou Giga is an experience like no other. It is perhaps, out of all things, most analogous to wandering in a circus, stumbling upon the Hall of Mirrors, and coming back having witnessed a sensational light show. In other words, Kyousou Giga is a show that stands out for its use of exuberant visuals; it displays a charm that is unique and impressive.

However, looks can often be deceiving, and thankfully, this is not the case for Kyousou Giga. Admittedly, the beginning seems bizarre; lots of random, unrelated events occur spontaneously. Nonetheless, a darker narrative, which Kyousou Giga skillfully weaves with read more

A dream is like an imagination. Sometimes they feel so real but other times they fade away like illusions where you’ll never be able to reach it again. But dreams sometimes can be larger than life and when we wake up, we may feel surprised. Kyousou Giga is one of those series that surprised me quite a bit despite feeling like living in a dream. It has a sense of uniqueness and style that will lure you in as if you’re in a dream world but everything feels so real.

Kyousougiga is like a book you randomly stumble upon that you end up reading until you finish it in one-go. Amidst the wide array of classics, bestsellers, and other popular books, Kyousougiga as a book would stand out quietly, waiting to be discovered. And for those who do eventually discover it, Kyousougiga rewards them with a refreshingly original and beautifully heartwarming story.

One peaceful night, a tomboyish girl named Koto accidentally crashes down into the “mirror capital” named Kyoto while chasing a magical black rabbit. In this weird city that models itself after the old medieval Kyoto, Koto discovers her three long-lost siblings that have read more

Every once in a while, there is a show that reminds you why you love the medium in the first place. May it be through the narrative completely enthralling you, the story resonating with personal events or just because it strikes a chord and makes you emotionally invested in what is going to happen. Kyousougiga is that show, and to me it is something that you can only really find in this medium.

One of the first things to notice about Kyousougiga is that this is not the first Kyousougiga anime. The original was released in 2011 and was a 1 episode long ONA produced by read more

Anime: Mawaru Penguindrum
Kyousougiga has more action than Mawaru but these animes share several similarities:
- Unique sceneries and colorful animation trace an intricate plot that starts as utterly confusing, until the end where explanations finally arrive and the riddles are solved.
- Both are plots filled with symbolism, rabbits, a fruit that connects two people and Alice in Wonderland references.
- The main message is "bonds" and the true meaning of family where a character disappears and returns later; also it is presented an unconventional affection between two siblings.
Great soundtracks and Voice acting...and there are many other similarities which are not mentioned here  read more

Anime: FLCL
Both have plenty of frantic exaggerated action. The kinds of things we wouldn't see from regular people and yet there are emotions that are deeply familiar. A sense of belonging, wanting some place to call home, universal kinds of longing in all the craziness.

Anime: Kekkai Sensen
Matsumoto Rie. Those two words, more succinctly and more definitively than any other, link Kyousogiga and Kekkai Sensen. Fairly new to the anime game, Matsumoto is quickly proving to be a very talented director with a distinct style and Kyusogiga and Kekkai Sensen are the biggest proof of this. Set in fantastical alternative versions of real cities, both anime are brimming with creativity, feature a colorful cast and boast an impeccable visual direction. Beyond the superficial level, they also have thematic similarities, with familial bonds and the notion of sacrifice underlying the actions 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.
