Koto, A and Un traverse a colorful, bizarre and alternate Kyoto, causing plenty of collateral damage along the way. They’re looking for a special rabbit that can possibly help them get home, but plenty of challenges stand in their way including a robot, the meddling Council of Three, and endless exploration yet to be done!
Naota Nanbada is a boring young boy who leads a boring life in a boring town. His older brother has left for America, and the closest he comes to any excitement is when his deadbeat dad has too much sake. But things change one day when a bizarre girl zooms up to him on a scooter and smacks him in the face with her guitar. What's more, once Naoto returns home he discovers that this strange woman has arrived ahead of him and moved in! Not only does she constantly engage in perverted activities with Naota's father and flirt with the young man himself, but she also claims to be an alien who is searching for the ‘Pirate King.' Now, Naota must learn to live with this new intruder, deal with an odd government agent who sports exceptionally large eyebrows and the mysterious Medical Mechanica, and come to terms with the fact that there are a variety of robots and weapons emerging out of his head - amongst other things. Perhaps boring wasn't so bad after all...
If you enjoyed the crazy, frenetic animation and character designs in Kyousougiga, you're bound to enjoy FLCL.
Are you looking for crazy, off the wall anime that has such a fast pace that you simply stare in awed fascination, wishing you knew what the plot was? Look no further than these two anime! With mentions of alien/fantasy forces at work, crazy fight scenes, and an intriguing cast, you'll wonder aloud "What am I watching, and why do I find it so awesome?"
Both are crazy anime with surreal plot and mad charachters. They are both very short but well made. Action is extremely laud, funny and so damn fun. Both anime have excellent following music and soundtrack. If you liked the madness of one it would be crime not to watch other one.
Both FLCL and Kyousogiga are filled with purdy and trippy animation that perfectly encapsules all the antics that the characters are up to. Neither bothers to make all that much sense and might not always care to explain what's happening to the viewer. If you want exposition you should watch something else. Anyway, if you liked either of these you should really check out the other one.
Ryuuko Matoi is a fiery, feisty girl on a vengeful mission: she’ll find her father’s murderer at all costs, with only a giant red scissor blade as a clue to the villain’s whereabouts. Using the item as a weapon, she fights her way into the terrifying Honnouji Academy to track down a lead, unaware that the institute is brutally governed by a student council that’s anything but ordinary. Wielding special “Goku uniforms”, the group, led by president Satsuki, uses superpowers to keep the student body in check - but things are about to change now that Ryuuko’s in town!
You need an anime where everything is crazy and where pacing is completely bizarre and makes no sense whatsoever? Yep, this is it. These two resemble one another really good. Even though there's a big difference in plot and charachters, there's something about the insanely fast pacing that will appeal to fans of either one of those.
If the incredibly fast pacing, and crazy on screen action and characters is what you fell in love with with either of these shows, then the other is guaranteed not to disappoint. Both are just 100% crazy from start to finish, and it's great.
If you liked the animation and energy of Kyousougiga but wish it would just slow down and make some sense, you might want to check out the Heartcatch Precure movie. You probably don't need to have seen the series to understand the movie (though it would be more enjoyable/emotionally fulfilling if you do).
Both are colorful and cute movies with great fight scenes, though Heartcatch is nowhere near as frenetic and psychedelically-animated.
In Japan, a team of scientists have created a medical breakthrough: a device that allows the wearer to enter the dreams of a patient, for the purpose of healing. The talented Paprika is a master at her profession, but complications have now appeared in the form of a “dream terrorist” – an unknown foe who inserts nightmares into the minds of those who use the device. The victims are swept up in a ghoulish parade of dolls, kitchen appliances, and musical animals, and are reduced to a vegetable state – or worse. Now, Paprika and the team of scientists must delve into the minds of those affected to figure out the source of the tampering before more people, including themselves, are damaged beyond repair.
Paprika's plot is perhaps more coherent than Kyousougiga's, but what strikes me as similar is the wild use of color, detail, and texture in the art, as well as a story set in a fluid reality where you're not quite sure what world it's taking place in.
