I’m a Kyoanifag

I just realized this now.

Analyzing my top anime, I just realized that most of the stuff Kyoto Animation did are in there (and quite deep at that). Besides being produced with top notch visuals, Kyoani has the knack of trying to make everything perfect. While it works at times and fails at times, apparently on whatever they do. . . I like it.

Clannad After Story – Best sequel ever. It still holds the record as the anime that made me cry the most. Bringing out emotion on me is hard and only a few shows have ever done that, so to be able to do that and even more, Clannad is just amazing.

Suzumiya Haruhi – The first season was just amazing. A totally refreshing take on execution and storytelling by skipping around the chronological order. The characters get develop in totally unique ways.

Full Metal Panic Fumoffu – I love FMP but I have to say, I enjoyed the comedy first and foremost. Imagine that! They made 12 episodes of just pure comedy between Sosuke and Chidori. Oh god I still get the chuckles remembering this show.

Nichijou – It’s one of the strangest comedies I’ve ever seen. It’s random, it’s absurd and it totally hits the right buttons on making me laugh. It especially has scenes that really bust your guts out (even moreso than Fumoffu) like the Mio wrestling episode.

Lucky Star – You could say Lucky Star made a new wave of comedy. It’s just girls doing cute things yet it’s so fucking entertaining. Nothing happens but at the same time, so much stuff just appears and makes you crack up.

I also liked Kanon, K-ON! and now Hyouka.

With Hyouka, Kyoani just took a leap in Slice of Life. From girls doing cute things, to girls doing nothing, Kyoani now makes people that talk about doing nothing. Hyouka has a lot of drawn out dialogue and exposition and you realize, WHY? Episode 6 is imminent of this. Chitanda got mad and asked Houtaro why she got mad. THAT’S IT. THAT’S THE WHOLE FUCKING EPISODE. And guess what? I loved it. I fucking loved it.

This is embarrassing, I never realized it until now but I really am a Kyoanifag.

  1. They can make things I don’t like, but I could never accuse them of holding back in their efforts to make something work, which tends to make me warm up to their work after a few episodes. So yeah, count me in as a fan.

  2. KyoAni is my favorite anime studio too. It started when Haruhi became my favorite series (and still is!) and I also grew to love Lucky Star soon after =) Except for Fumoffu, I’ve seen all their series and even though I don’t adore all of them as much as those two, there hasn’t been one that I thought was bad. Like Cytrus said, I always see effort in everything they do – they’re a unique “quality over quantity series.” Not only is their animation so gorgeous to look at, but they also have a magical way with creating atmosphere and character expressions.

  3. Quite frankly, I’m quite a big Kyoto Animation fan myself and saw practically all their adaptations except for Fumoffu and Munto. The quality in their animations is one of the contributing factors, something that can’t be seen from other studios although others like Ufotable, Shaft and PA Works are up there as well.
