“Kyoani Finds A Way” is a phrase that has been shopped onto a picture of actor Jeff Goldblum playing his role of Dr. Ian Malcolm from the movie Jurassic Park during his now famous catch phrase scene of “Life finds a way.”


The phrase “KyoAni Finds A Way” originated on 4chan’s /a/ board as a parody macroimage of Dr. Ian Malcolm’s now famous Jurassic Park phrase “Life finds a Way.” It is meant to be a way of expressing either amazement or sarcasm at the ability of anime studio Kyoto Animation (a.k.a. KyoAni for short) to always find new and inventive ways of showing off the “moe” genre and sometimes to rehash old versions in new ways whether successful or not.


In 2011, Kyoto Animation’s anime version of 4coma series Nichijou received high praise for it’s epic animation quality and hilarious comedy presentation. However despite the high praise it failed to sell well (as compared with other successful KyoAni animations such as “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya”, “Lucky Star”, and “K-ON!”). In June of 2011 a thread was crated on 4chan’s /a/ board showing the dismal sales figures for the show. During this thread an anonymous user posted the now famous shopped picture of Dr. Ian Malcolm with the phrase “KyoAni finds a way to fail!” typed beside it. The picture itself however only had “KyoAni Finds A Way” on it. The archive of this thread doesn’t exist. The picture and phrase were seldom used after this until August of 2012 when the sales figures for Kyoto Animation’s next series “Hyōka” were released for the first BluRay disk release. The sales figures showed Hyōka selling extremely well. The picture of Dr. Ian Malcolm and the phrase “KyoAni Finds A Way” made a return this time as praise for Kyoto Animation having bounced back from the bad sales of Nichijou. This time the picture and phrase stuck. The picture and phrase received an even further boost in usage in October of that same year after Kyoto Animation’s next show “Chūnibyō Demo Koi ga Shitai!” (She has Eighth-Grade Disease, but I still want to Love Her) began to air. This time the phrase and picture usage morphed into a new usage into it’s current usage of describing how Kyoto Animation continues to reinvent the moe genre with new and cuter character designs and personalities. {{URL|}} The meme continues to grow in popularity to this day and revives itself after every new series Kyoto Animation releases.

I have mixed feelings about KyoAni. On one hand their execution is excellent, and they did give us the likes of Haruhi and Clannad…

But K-ON, oh K-ON!

Anyways, the spread is minimal. It’s more of an in-joke based macro among anime communities.

Though I will say I agree with the sentiment of this macro. And…why is this labelled NSFW?
