About Kyousougiga Blu-ray/DVD
Kyousougiga the Complete Series contains episodes 0-10.5 of the anime directed by Rie Matsumoto.
In Kyoto, nothing changes. No, not *that* Kyoto, but rather the "Mirror Capital" Kyoto, the world inside of a painting! Colorful, beautiful, but static, the people of this world live an idyllic, if boring life. That is, until Koto appears, like a wrecking ball slamming into still waters.
Koto's never met her mother, and in search of clues about her missing parent, she winds up in the very place she's supposed to be, yet least expected. What unfolds is a tale of a crazy, mixed-up family, where the father has mysterious powers, the mother is a goddess, and the siblings have an intense rivalry that will finally see its conclusion... even if that conclusion brings about the attention of the Shrine, an organization dedicated to protecting the multiverse.

Happy to own this little-known gem.

Kyousougiga is one of finest examples as to why I love japanese animation and storytelling. Its crazy plot, fun-filled characters, and witty dialogue are sure to draw you in from the get-go.
There's actually lots of bonus content too! Content includes: the TV series, the ONA series, Clean OPs and Closings, CMs, and sponsor cards. Here's a little tip on episode viewing order. Watch ONA ep 00, TV eps 1-6,, ONA eps 1-6, then TV ep 7-10.
Note for DVD purchasers
If you're buying it for just the DVD (yet to buy a Blu-ray player or live in Region B/C land) then it's worth noting that you get the 11 TV episodes on the DVD, and the Episodes 5.5 and 10.5 extras.
The rest of the extras, including the ONAs are on the Blu-rays only.
Beautiful, confusing start but joyful ride

THIS is what animation should be! Fantastic worlds and realities that just can't be reproduced as well in live-action.
This is Alice in Wonderland realized as a superior (or at least pretty) anime TV series.
This is seriously one of the prettier looking series I've watched in a while and I really like the main character, Koto. Very spunky girl!
Recommendation: Unless you absolutely have to be a completist viewer, watch the TV version of the series. The ONA is basically a sneak-peak, "Cliffs Notes" version of the series. The TV series has the complete story and makes more sense! Also, it appears that every bit of the ONA was reused in the TV series so you won't be missing any animation (that I could see) if you only watch the TV series.
This series is a revelation -- more people should watch it.
Great license for Discotek to pick up! Reward these guys because they take risks most of the other companies aren't...
