This was my "Best Anime That Nobody Watched, 2018" award winner, so now those of you who don't do subtitles can all completely ignore it as well. I would not blame those who do since it does not contain any of the commonly popular elements of anime. There are no cute idols, no mechas, no martial arts action. Instead the show is a character drama in a spoiler[time-stopped world] where things might not be as they seem at first.

The series is not perfect. It drags at times. I went back a couple of months ago, watched the entire single-cour series in one sitting, and found it more bearable than waiting a week between episodes. However, the characters are compelling, their motivations ring true for the most part, the artwork and animation are both well-managed.

To ANY anime fans who only do dubbed and wish to foray outside their usual bounds Kokkokku is a nice place to start, once the dubbed version arrives. Go for it. You just might like it.

I'm kinda surprised this got a dub considering how kind of out there this one was compared to most anime that came out at that time. Agree with Fred that its the Best Anime That Nobody Watched in 2018, as I loved it! And come on, that OP!
