Kyouran Kazoku Nikki (狂乱家族日記, The Diary of a Crazed Family) is a light novel series by Akira (日日日), with illustrations by x6suke. A 26-episode anime adaptation was broadcast in 2008. Midarezaki Ouka is used to having strange things happen to him -after all, he is the head of the Great Japanese Empire Paranormal Phenomena Bureau of Measures. But when he catches a small cat girl in the shopping district stealing apples, his whole life rearranges to fit a new operation…
OPERATION COZY FAMILY.
Thousands of years ago, Enka the God of Destruction, was killed. However, with a dying breath it claimed that its child would appear and destroy humanity. Now in futuristic Japan, all of the potential children of Enka have been found and placed into a haphazard family. Teika the lion, Gekka the jellyfish, Yuuka the oni, Ginka the cross-dressing mafia son, and Hyouka the bioweapon–along with their parents Ouka and Kyouka (the ruler of a demon underworld)–all live under one roof in a family frenzy.
The story, well, there is no story. It’s just the events of an extremely messed up family, the Miderazaki’s, consisting of a cyborg, catgirl, gay son, lion, two oni daughters, a freaky jellyfish, and a military officer human. It focusus on the plan ‘Cozy Family’. I forgot to mention all of the people, except the human and the older oni daughter, are children of enka, an evil demon that died a long time ago and said his children will come back to take revenge. this plan was to get the children of enka to enjoy life and to not think about destroying the world. So i guess there is a story. The Diary of a Crazed Family, that should tell you something about this anime. In fact, if you were any bit serious about it, it would take your face to the curb and beat it out of you. At least for the most part. But let’s get this party started shall we?
There is no real story in Kyouran Kazoku Nikki, each episode could easily function as a standalone short, but that doesn’t mean the show lacks continuity or has no real meat within the episodes themselves. Usually there is an Aesop or moral or something or other to be taught by Kyouka-sama and that’s about the only thing that would annoy me. It’s more or less a slice of life. Your mileage may vary. Overall, this is something of a must watch for fans of comedy (personally I don’t know anyone who would dislike a good comedy). That’s it really, so embrace Goddere and may Kyouka-sama smile upon you.
