After presumably failing 19 job interviews in one day, Juri Yukawa's dreams of moving out of her parents' home are utterly dashed. Stuck living with her working mother Nobuko, NEET brother Tsubasa, laid-off father Takafumi, and single-parent sister Sanae, the only hope for this family to raise a decent adult is her little nephew Makoto. However, this struggling family's life takes a turn for the worse when Makoto and Tsubasa are violently kidnapped by a mysterious organization and held for ransom. With only 30 minutes to deliver five million yen to the criminals, Juri's grandfather reveals a dangerously powerful secret to her and Takafumi.

By offering blood to her grandfather's mystical stone, the three enter the world of "Stasis," a version of their world where time stops for everyone but the users. Having arrived at their destination, their rescue efforts go awry when they are assailed by a surprising group of people who are somehow able to move around within Stasis. While all hope seems lost, a monstrous giant known as the Herald appears amidst the chaos, its intent and motivations as cryptic as the very nature of this timeless world.

I went into Kokkoku blind, and I was pleasantly surprised. The story, writing, characters, art and soundtrack are all done well. The premise and worldbuilding of Kokkoku are highly imaginative and executed fairly well. The plot struggles a bit towards the middle when Kokkoku seems to run out of interesting ideas to throw at viewers and resorts to dishing out backstories that didn't feel entirely necessary. The main villain was a bit of a cliche, and I think his character could have been more well-rounded. There is some CGI that I found to look out of place. Otherwise Kokkoku is a good short watch if ...

Mixed Feelings
The premise of the anime itself is good, the way the story is built too, but I thought the villain was very poorly used, they used a lot of time to build and then throw everything away. What disappoints me the most are the last two episodes, it seems that the story is lost and they barely explain about the founder. Like I said before, the brute of the anime itself is great, but it falls short at the end.

(PT-BRA) A premissa do anime em si é boa, a forma como é construída a história também, porém eu achei muito mal usado o ...

Kokkoku is an ambitious failure. It failed to understand the limits of its budget, taking on far more than it could handle. Its story is illogical, the art is ugly as sin, the characters are frustrating, and its glacial pacing makes it one of the most boring thrillers I've ever seen. The many interesting themes it juggled are freezing time, a dysfunctional family, and psychic powers, but Kokkoku wastes them on mediocre execution.

The dysfunctional Yukawa family are our main characters. It would be an understatement to say they don’t get along. They hit, yell at, and curse at each other. The main character and ...
