Having failed 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 only as the Herald appears amidst the chaos, its intent and motivations as cryptic as the very nature of this timeless world.

Newly founded Geno Studio, the replacement to finish bankrupt-hit defunct studio Manglobe's movie project on Genocidal Organ has tasked on this show, along with Golden Kamuy in the next Spring season and posed this as one of 3 new TV anime projects as their start in the industry.
So does this studio have what it takes as they showcase their first wave of anime that graced us? Let's find out.

The story and plot itself is nothing we've seen that stands out, it's just time travel with an object that's regarded as a family heirloom for generations at will, and the organization behind it wants it for read more

A first i was worried that a story about characters moving around in stopped time would be boring, however each episode that has been released has been entertaining enough to make me want to see what happens in the next episode.
I also like how they reveal how certain things work in this world in a relatively natural progression considering the amount of information certain characters have of this supernatural state. Out of all of the shows in this season this show is definitely worth checking out.

Side Note: The promo art makes this show seem like a Steins Gate inspired anime however this story came out read more

my first review ~ enjoy

Kokkoku (cock-cock-coo) is a bad anime.

STORY 3/10
what if a family of idiots got a magic rock that lets them freeze time??
after 10 episodes i can tell you that nothing exciting happens.

At first it was about a family saving the older and younger brother who were kidnapped, then about freezing time with some magical rock, then about the mafia who kidnapped them, then about the main character getting psychic powers with her grandpa, now its about a big green dude trying to kill them. I have been wasting my time with this confusing nonsense. Nothing in it makes sense and nothing matters.

I'm both surprised and not surprised that I'm one of few who seems to love this anime - surprised because it's like few anime that I've seen before, and for the same reason, not surprised.

If you're a fan of David Lynch, surreal, or uncanny-valley sorts of things, I think you might enjoy Kokkoku.

If you're a fan of Junji Ito (from what little I know of his manga), I think you might enjoy Kokkoku.

If you enjoyed Mousou Dairinin (AKA"Shounen Bat") I think you will probably enjoy Kokkoku - in fact, I'm enjoying Kokkoku more than Mousou Dairinin because it has a more cohesive plot happening. read more
