I figured out what makes KnK bad. It's basically Bakemonogatari, but without the Mushishi ingredient.
Hard to put into words but for one, Araragi is a friendly lecher version of Ginko, while Akihito is just a friendly lecher. There is a lot more playing with names and words in Monogatari and Ginko than there is in Kyoukai no Kanata.
In Kyoukai no Kanata, things are resolved through fights while in the other two, there's usually something deeper than that.
Please go to sleep and never wake up again.
Nah. KnK was able to hold my attention span and didn't bore me to tears.

what a shit family
I bet thats why he's a siscon. Everything else in his life is shit. I wonder since izumi's power is like freezing and he's always wearing a scarf. He said it was part of his abilities but I have to wonder.
If you watched Shinonome, both Izumi and the glasses guy have a past and he's like her stalker whose only interest is causing shit. But yeah, the Nase family structure isn't what you call a family. The patriarch is cooped up like the Pope, and the ones leading the clan are children compared to him.
Oh, and a Spirit World Warrior has distinct "side effects" to their powers. All we know is that Hiroomi's "side effect" is being cold all the time and Mitsuki's eyes see lights of the world in a chartreuse hue.
Episode 5, Chartreuse Light.
>I thought mitsuki's chartreuse hue vision was just symbolism that she was depressed
Except we see both the festival lanterns in the last part depicted as both having a regular color and a chartreuse light. Depression isn't also usually represented by such a "healthy" and "bright" color such as chartreuse.
What makes KnK bad is the cop-out ending and complete lack of closure on whats up with Izumi's past.
The idol episode was also shit and wasted time that could have been spent on developing the cast and plot, should have been a BD bonus or something.
