Midarezaki Ouka is used to having strange things happen to him -after all, he is the head of the Great Japanese Empire Paranormal Phenomena Bureau of Measures. But when he catches a small cat girl in the shopping district stealing apples, his whole life rearranges to fit a new operation...


Thousands of years ago, Enka the God of Destruction, was killed. However, with a dying breath it claimed that its child would appear and destroy humanity. Now in futuristic Japan, all of the potential children of Enka have been found and placed into a haphazard family.

Teika the lion, Gekka the jellyfish, Yuuka the oni, Ginka the cross-dressing mafia son, and Hyouka the bioweapon--along with their parents Ouka and Kyouka (the ruler of a demon underworld)--all live under one roof in a family frenzy.

There seems to be a lack of reviews of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki where all the episodes have been watched at the time of writing so I shall attempt to fill that void.

The Diary of a Crazed Family, that should tell you something about this anime. In fact, if you were any bit serious about it, it would take your face to the curb and beat it out of you. At least for the most part. But let's get this party started shall we?

There is no real story in Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, each episode could easily function as a standalone short, but that read more

Okay, I'm writing this review before the series has finished airing, which means two things. First of all, my opinion is subject to change by the time it has finished airing. Secondly, I'm basically a guinea pig reviewer.

After reading the synopsis of Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, you may have some light suspicions that this anime may be a bit crazy.

It is crazy. Normally, when you hear of an anime that features an officer of a paranormal agency and six descendants of an ancient monster, you expect it to be some sort of fantasy/sci-fi shounen series. Well, Kyouran Kazoku Nikki throws that convention out the window like read more

The story, well, there is no story. It's just the events of an extremely messed up family, the Miderazaki's, consisting of a cyborg, catgirl, gay son, lion, two oni daughters, a freaky jellyfish, and a military officer human. It focusus on the plan 'Cozy Family'. I forgot to mention all of the people, except the human and the older oni daughter, are children of enka, an evil demon that died a long time ago and said his children will come back to take revenge. this plan was to get the children of enka to enjoy life and to not think about destroying the world. read more

Story: The show wasnt as random as I thought it would be. It keeps on switching between drama and comedy, which is very confusing. There are way too many serious parts, and too few funny parts. If you liked the randomness of the first episode, and want to watch something similar, dont bother watching the rest. With the cast of characters, I feel that the show could have been done a lot better.

Art: The art is awesome, no com...plaints there.

Sound: I think that having different ending songs each sang by a different member of the family is a good idea for their part. The OP read more

Both about normal unfortunate males that are thrown into a random marriage with a not so human bride and go through hell because of their crazy family and friendsxD Very random and funny.  
Both series are fantascial and spontaneous comedies that make a point of flaunting otaku memes to get great laughs. These series use a similar style of over-the-top craziness and ridiculous gags throughout a large cast. Also, parallels can be drawn between the main female leads as spontaneous supernatural loli gods that always get their way. =^_^=

Over-eccentric main girl
flat out crazy scenarios
inhuman subordinates (~ish) 
At times they leave you thinking - "what the hell has just happened". Plot? Who needs solid plot? 
Both of them have great, crazy humor. The action are very fast and chaotic. The characters are a parody of science fiction/ slice of life series, yet they are likeble.  
Both have a self-centered main heroine, both involve a family situation with superpowers, and Ouka and Minamoto are very similar characters on the surface.
