Story; 0.5/10

My first impressions of the show was simple. It was as if there was this massive orgy that involves all the nasty things and a ludicrous amount of gene splicing between Heartcatch Precure, Tatami Galaxy, FLCL, Summer Wars, and bakemonogatari. Well.... Maybe not simple. In fact, there's no simplicity in that at all! But the show seems to appeal in the correct way... At least the trailer did.

I am going to say this right now, however. Whoever thought of the plot for Kyousougiga was on acid. There is absolutely no doubt about it. Honestly, Watching the trailer told me more about the show than actually watching the show. I feel like I'd have to be the mastermind behind the show in order to actually understand it.

Animation; 6/10

What the hell? What is this show? It's a gigantic cluster of almost every color known to man. For some reason the main character (I think) is fighting with.. a clear biscuit hammer? The colors are put everywhere. They are not shy 1 bit about any use of coloration. They might as well have just said "Hey, I'm feeling rainbow tonight. I'll just throw in a bunch of rainbow balls in the middle of the street. No one will notice."

The strong point about this show, which I believe MADE the show, was the fights. The fights were amazing, I didn't what what was going on! First you go left, then you take a right, then you SWING YOUR HAMMER, then back and forth until you're at the 4th dimension. Honestly, even during the fights, the acid this guy was on was so strong now I feel like I'M on acid.

Sound; 6/10

BOOM, CRUSH. Honestly, the sounds made the show feel alive much more alive. Alive to the point to where they are super-animating a living body. They were put at the right moment to compliment the animation.... Do you know what I think? This style of animation shouldn't be complimented if there's no quality story to back it up... But I liked the music.

Characters; 1/10

Let me tell you about the character development. I don't know who any of the characters are at this point. There was no lasting impression and nothing that explained anything on ANYTHING. What were they thinking?! Were they trying to make people relate the characters on their own? That's fine to a certain extent, but this is like blue whale in a puddle of water.

Overall; 4/10

Just.... I don't know what else to say...

BAM! POW! The fights were neat, and I felt like I was on acid the whole time. It prmoised something new and exciting, and it just came out with... What, an extended trailer? I question if this is the actual show. SLOW IT DOWN! It's like frame skipping 50000 frames a second.

All I can say is, if you want to feel like you're on acid for the next 25 minutes, go ahead and watch this show.

Ah, the storyline ... did it have one?

Character development ... Koto got older, wiser, more nebuous.

Symbolism?  Might be rich with this ... but you go run with this.

A quaint spending of twenty-five minutes or so.  Tyman 2007 was not too far off the mark about acid-tripping.

I usually like to go in-depth on an anime, but ... I'm basically done with this one.

A crazy roller coaster ride that explains nothing, but leaves you wanting more.

Koto(human) is stuck in a different world, where youkai, gods and the like are real, and to get back home she needs to find a rabbit, of course a normal rabbit is not enough and she teams up with two youkai boys to wreak havoc around the city of Kyoto.


  • Story is a mystery at this point
  • Animation is good and interesting
  • Sound is good
  • There really is nothing to say about the characters, we only get to see the base of each one and will have to watch the sequals to find out more.
