Sometimes a Basic Show Can Be Enjoyable

Fuuka

On paper this show isn’t what I’d deem as remarkable. However, that doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyable.

Fuuka was a pretty straight forward show. It all felt pretty familiar. Boy meets unique girl. They have experiences together. Feeling grow. There is a barrier to overcome. Boy and girl come together. Oh yeah, and there is a band that follows a similar course (because said boy and girl are in the band).

Arguably, one could say a lot of shows follow this pattern. They wouldn’t be wrong. Fuuka just seemed rather obvious in it’s presentation and that stood out to me.

Despite this, I still enjoyed the show.

The animation was decent.

It had pretty good music (which one would hope seeing it was about a band).

As I understand, the story in the anime diverges a bunch from the manga (not too surprising). So, maybe this was why the story was not as compelling as it could have been…Who knows?

 I still enjoyed it and didn’t feel like it was a waste of time despite my misgivings about the formulaic feel of the story. Sometimes that is okay.

 Watch it. Don’t expect anything earth-shattering. Just a pleasant little show about teens, unrequited love, love, and a band.

Attention Parents: Aside from a brief: “you’re a pervert for trying to look at my panties” scene in the beginning, the show is mostly harmless. No real violence to speak of, not fan service-y, low to no cursing. A pretty safe watch.

Until next time: Happy Viewing!

    I felt like the show had a lot of cheesy moments, but I definitely agree with you. It was the typical romance story, but I still enjoyed it. I’m glad you liked it, too 😛

      I would agree with the cheesy moments assessment. 🙂
      It was what it was. As long as you didn’t set your hopes too high, it was fun enough.
