Synopsis

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...

OPERATION COZY FAMILY.

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.

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

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

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

If I could summarize this series in one word, it would be: inconsistent. The bright style, hectic OP, and bizarre premise make this seem like this will be an absurd comedy. Ok, there is a lot of that there, I won't deny it. However, there are certain episodes, especially the ones that delve into the characters' pasts that are downright depressing. The switch is rather jarring at times, especially when they do it multiple times in a single episode.

Also, the series tends to take itself too seriously at times. It's as if half the staff thought they were still in serious mode, when everyone else 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.

Anime: Macademi Wasshoi!
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)

Anime: Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
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.

At times they leave you thinking - "what the hell has just happened". Plot? Who needs solid plot? 
reportRecommended by shine_heaven
Anime: Zettai Karen Children
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.
