Anime Review: Kyousougiga Is One Stunning Anime

Koto from Toei Animation's Kyousougiga

We all love anime thats look sharp, crisp and vibrant. Kyousougiga is one of the more beautiful anime that was outshined by the larger titles when it debuted in late 2013. It was a small, 10 episode run that managed to captivate audiences with its dazzling sights and frankly confusing pace.

The story of Kyousougiga follows a young girl name Koto as she ventures into another world in an effort to find her family. There she finds an estranged family of siblings, Myoue, Yase and Kurama as they rule over the world their father (named Myoue) and mother (named Koto) had created for them to live in and enjoy a long life. Sure the story isn’t one that wows right off the bat, but it does have some weight to it.

The anime has a solid theme department as it manages to tackle issues concerning family, religion and finding that reason for being. It has something for everyone. Honestly, I had a hard time swallowing the story alongside trying to keep both the same named father/son thing straight.

But what the anime ruins with confusion it makes up for with unique storytelling. It is definitely a deeper life story worth watching.


What makes this anime so enjoyable is just how simply beautiful it is. Frankly it is an anime that dazzles me every time I throw it up on the screen. It is a hidden gem, a diamond in the rough if you will in terms of the art direction. Toei Animation has done a wonderful job at creating a world that is just frankly stunning and oozing with detail. This detail even extends beautifully into the character development, giving each character a unique quirk to their personality. While the anime is short lived, the characters develop at a comfortable pace for the viewer.

If you have also seen this colorfully unique title as well, let me know how you felt about it in the comment section down below. I personally wish that a second season would pop up soon, but I guess that will just have to wait.
