Life; what is it but a dream?Hidden in an old ink painting is the "Looking-Glass City" of Kyoto, where demons and humans live together and anything broken is instantly fixed. Created by Myoe, a Buddhist monk with the power to bring drawings to life, and his lover Koto, a black rabbit given human form by a kindly bodhisattva, the city is now ruled by their three adopted children: the secretive temple priest Kurama, the aristocratic yet childish demon Yase, and Myoe's lazy girl-crazy successor Yakushimaru, who have grown estranged and jaded waiting for their parents' return. One day, a schoolgirl from another world, also named Koto, arrives with her "brothers" A and Un to search for the black rabbit, who she believes is her long-lost mother too.Kyousogiga is an original net animation written by Izumi Todo (a pseudonym for the staff of Toei Animation, who are also the minds behind Ojamajo Doremi and the Pretty Cure franchise) and produced by Toei Animation with the collaboration of Banpresto which debuted on December 2011 on Nico Nico Douga. From September to December 2012, five additional shorts were released which expanded the setting and characters. After it garnered sufficient attention, a TV series was greenlit for the Fall 2013 anime season.

Another manga adaptation following the TV series began serialization in November 2013.The series contains a lot of Buddhist imagery along with Alice Allusion motifs.
