Originally Aired: Winter 2018
Kokkoku is an anime with a fascinating premise hamstrung by terrible execution. It’s an adult narrative about a dysfunctional family finding out they can stop-time, only to be caught up in a crisis of cults, monsters, and their own personal hangups. The show is usually ugly as sin, and the ending is godawful, but there are just enough bright spots for me to recommend giving the series a look if you think you’d be interested. At least the first half of it; after that…yikes.
My reviews of Kokkoku can be found on Anime News Network.
