Story Equal parts corny and enjoyable, Kamisama Kazoku is a solid anime, without managing to quite hit on incredible. Parts of the plot will be predictable for anyone who is familiar with anime in general, but it's not without it's twists either. Add to that a well rounded ending that leaves you feeling fulfilled, and you've got quite an enjoyable, short romp. At only 13 episodes, the pacing was rather well done, with no episode feeling like filler for the main story arc.

Story: Simply said, with the story Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann wove, it was akin to a giant mecha grabbing you and dragging you through multiple universes. Starting out as a look on breaking free of restrictions and growing to be more mature, it moves ever on to tackle even larger issues. It was a hell of a ride, and while I find myself stoic in the face of most drama, I shed tears during this journey. And that's what I would describe this as. A journey.
