I am not sure how to write a review for this or what score to pick. Hence, the respectful 6 for "fine". This is a mini anthology series consisting of 5 OVA's. Each tells a vastly different story and setting. With little to connect them aside from the somewhat experimental visuals. They're the easiest thing to attach yourself to and be entertained.

I suppose... it is a mixed bag with a little bit of something for almost everyone. If you're not necessarily into comedy, it's still at least worth looking into and a way to pay respects to the work that went into them.

Kigeki is in fact a brilliant old dark comedy before comedy of this day actually meant funny. Its a Dark Comedy in itself where it precieves one thing but is in fact another thing. In this series they are short so it would take you maybe an hour or 2 maybe not even that long to watch the full series but it is a defiantly must see series.
It draws you into its illusion the first second you start to watch it and it keeps your attention until it finally ends. This was a very amazing series to me I have never seen anything like it read more

It is quite simple, but i absolutely loved it, it is a different style of anime, and that is the reason some people dislike it, and this happens cause they dont understand this anime is not here to compete with Hellsing, Gantz, Devilman lady, bleach, Fullmetal or other animes released during the early 2000´s, this here is a OVA of short animations, not a full series, but a compilation of short stories ! So, no ofense to you, but if you hated it cause "that makes no sense" than you probably watched it waiting for the wrong reason, OR, maybe you just disliked it, if read more

This review is for Kigeki (Comedy).

Wow. I don't really know what to say. It's good, that much is certain. It's basically a dark fairy tale about a swordsman and his hobby, and the little girl who finds out about it. I really can't say much more than that without spoiling anything, since it's so short. Just go watch it, there really isn't any excuse since it's just 10 minutes. The animation is very breath taking, in fact it is hauntingly beautiful, and appears as though it was shot through an old film camera, you can see all the artifacts read more
