Long ago, there was a monk named Myoue who could bring anything he drew to life. He quietly lived with his wife Koto—a black rabbit in human form—and their three children: Yakushimaru, Kurama, and Yase. One day, the high priest of the land concluded that Myoue's drawings caused too many problems for the locals and ordered him to find a solution. In response, the family secretly fled to an alternate world of Myoue's own creation—the Looking Glass City.

Everything was peaceful until Myoue and Koto suddenly vanished. Their three children are left to take care of the city, and Yakushimaru inherits Myoue's name and duties. Stranded in this alternate world, their problems only get worse when a young girl—also named Koto—crashes down from the sky and declares that she is also looking for the older Myoue and Koto. Armed with a giant hammer and two rowdy familiars, Koto just might be the key to releasing everyone from the eternal paper city.

Ending Theme

I am moved. Kyousougiga emulates so many works that I am deeply fond of. From Eva's unconventional character build-ups to FLCL's signature humour, adding in bits of Gainax's flair and even hints of Shaftism. But perhaps the most noticeable analogue is Ikuhara's Penguindrum. Not just in the way Kyousougiga swaps background characters with literal cardboard cutouts, but mainly in the themes it shares surrounding family and how, in the face of inexplicable ideas like fate or, in this case, divinity, that familial bond triumphs over all else. It's a confounding and conceptual but ultimately an immensely profound journey.

Kyousougiga firmly follows the idea that "rules are ...

This anime is a complete experience. I can only hope to gain something more than what this anime offers. Every aspect of it is impeccable, art by itself, flawless. The most important thing to me is the story and I think that that's the most difficult aspect to flawlessly deliver on, which this anime does, for me at least.

So, this is a masterpiece in my book. It reminds me of the anime Shiki and Shinsekai Yori because of the level of quality that the whole package that the anime is has. These three anime are different, but it can't get better than what this anime ...

Mixed Feelings
All the babes in this anime already have boyfriends!
I can see how some people might be into Yase, but she has mommy issues, and is part demon so I would advise against asking her out if you value your life.
That pretty much leaves Shouko as most eligible bachelorette. Shouko’s dedication to her work may make her seem unapproachable, but I’d be willing to bet she’d be willing to go out with just about anyone if they could keep those kids out of her hair for a day. So there’s your in.
Kyousou Giga feels like a lot of care was put into making every aspect of ...
