The Kagerou Project is a series of {{Vocaloid}} songs by producer Jin(Shizen no teki-P), with character designs by artists Shidu and Wannyanpuu. Each song in the series is connected to each other to tell a story centering on a group of people with [[MagicalEye special abilities that are born from their eyes.]]

The series also has a [[LightNovel/KagerouDays novel]] written by the producer himself. It currently has five volumes. These come together with the [[Music/KagerouProject songs]] and [[AllThereInTheManual information released by Jin]] to tell the complex plot behind a town that seems to be hiding more than it appears.

Mekakucity Records, the second and last album for the series, was released on May 29, 2013.

A manga is also currently being serialized monthly on Comic Gene and is illustrated by Mahiro Sato, and as per the announcement in the Children Record booklet, an anime produced by StudioSHAFT under the title "Anime/MekakucityActors" began airing on April 12, 2014.

If you're interested, there are more in-depth guides to the series [[https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dnEiuBKTgjoVO0xjKmeo7QR4Cumw_qBC2Km_4FyQDwU/edit?pli=1 here]] and [[http://pkmnbreedergold.tumblr.com/post/31755847307/afterstories here]].

'''[[Characters/KagerouProject Now has a character page.]]'''

'''Seeing as the series is spread across different media, there are separate pages for the [[Music/KagerouProject music]], [[Anime/MekakucityActors anime]] and the [[LightNovel/KagerouDays novel]]. Please put tropes specifically referring to those under their respective pages.'''
!! Kagerou Project contains examples of:
* [[ABoyAndHisX A Boy and His Cybernetic Girl Program-Thing Who Enjoys Pranking Him]]
* AmbiguouslyHuman: Konoha.
* AllThereInTheManual: Some of the information about the characters are only mentioned in the accompanying booklets for the music cds.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: The Mekakushidan's eye powers tend to be connected to things they wished for prior to [[spoiler:their deaths]]--Takane was narcoleptic and wanted better mental stamina, Haruka was frail from his congenital illness and wanted an idealized body, Momo wanted people to notice her and not just her genius big brother, Seto wanted to be able to understand people's feelings without having to talk to them, Kano wanted to hide [[spoiler:the evidence of his mother's abuse]], Kido [[spoiler:internalized her family's abuse so badly she wanted to just disappear]], Shintarou wanted to be able to go back to the day Ayano died, [[spoiler:Ayano herself wanted to be able to stop her dad]], and so on. There are exceptions to this rule, but virtually all the characters who do have powers relating to these wishes have experienced a lot of emotional turmoil because of their powers.
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: All members of the Mekakushi Dan have a color associated with them (Kido - Violet, Seto - Green, Kano - Black, Mary - White, Momo - Orange, Ene - Blue, Shintaro [[spoiler:and Ayano]] - Red, Hibiya - Light blue, Konoha - Yellow-green). Hiyori is also associated with pink.
* DeadAllAlong: In a sense. [[spoiler:The entire main cast died at some point, but came BackFromTheDead]].
* DomedHometown
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Ayano]]
** [[spoiler:Shintarou due to the above in Route xx.]]
* EveryoneWentToSchoolTogether: Shintarou, Ayano, [[spoiler: Takane/Ene, and Haruka/Konoha.]] Before all the incidents happened. The latter two were in a special section of the school but still interacted with the former two.
* GroundhogDayLoop: Hibiya and Hiyori, [[spoiler:and on a larger scale, all of the characters due to Mary resetting the timeline when Kuroha kills them.]] Implied with [[spoiler:the rest of the main cast]] as well.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Shion, Mary's mother, was actually half-human. Thus Mary is only one-fourth Gorgon and three-quarters human.
* IdentityAmnesia: The serious, more deadpan Konoha used to be [[spoiler:the happy-go-lucky Haruka Kokonose. They still share a few traits.]]
* InsideAComputerSystem: Ene happens to be living in Shintarou's computer, though she can also inhabit phones and tvs.
* MagicalEye: Some important characters have eye abilities.
* PlotTriggeringDeath: [[spoiler: Ayano's suicide.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Many, if not all, of the characters have this in common.
* TheWallAroundTheWorld
* [[YouCanSeeMe You Can See Us?]]: [[spoiler: When Kuroha spots the gang at the park while under Kido eye's ability]]
