Synopsis

Koto and her brothers, A and Un are stuck in a strange city causing massive mayhem through the land called Kyoto but not the Kyoto they are from. They are searching for an atypical rabbit in order to return home. Koto, who is the eldest of the three, seems to have some sort of connection to this weird place ruled by a monk, a demon, and a priest.

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

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

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 due to spoilers.
M.P. has more depth and more well developped characters, but Kyousougiga does an excellent job in just 10 episodes. Iif you enjoyed one you will probably enjoy the other.
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.
