First Anime Review

I’m going to attempt my first review of an Anime. So be warned now, there will most likely be spoilers as I learn to do better reviews. I’m going to keep this one short and make others longer as I get more comfortable doing them. Please give me feedback on the review. Let me know what I could improve on.

For my first review I chose Fuuka. It’s a great anime with amazing music. Fuuka is categorized as a drama, romance with a music theme. Fuuka was directed by Keizou Kusakawa.  Fuuka starts out with Yuu Haruna, voiced in the English dub by Aaron Dismuke, heading to school. He has his phone out going through it like any teenager would. Yuu stops to look at a music poster of his old friend Koyuki when a young woman screams for him to get out of the way.

That go’s as well as you might think. The young woman jumps over a sign sitting on the walk and lands into Yuu. They both fall to the ground. Thanks to Yuu’s death grip on his phone he never dropped it. This of course leads the young woman to think Yuu took pics of her underwear. So she takes his phone and smashes it on the ground. That is how Yuu and Fuuka meet for the first time.

Between the love triangle and the misunderstandings, Fuuka gives you all the feels you would expect from a music themed anime. It quickly became one of my favorite anime’s and has already been added to my re-watch list and my buy list. If you have Funimation than I highly recommend streaming this one.  That’s my short take on Fuuka. Leave a comment and let me know what you think.

  1. Fuuka was a tough anime. It was well drawn, and reminded me of Nana, only with two singers rather than one. The toughest part is the guy is in the position of having two different women obviously needing him, but he can only have one. It kinda reminded me of Nisekoi, also. That was a show where there were two women who NEEDED him, and three others which would probably have managed to satisfy themselves as a mistress. Its rare for a show to produce a harem where choosing one is obviously destructive and hurtful. Tenchi Muyo had a similar limitation, only Tenchi was too dumb to realize he was part of a polygamous culture by birth, so the solution to his troubles as “Select ALL”. Fuuka doesn’t have this option, and it was interesting watching him be stunned by their abilities and attempts to win him over. He’s not completely hopeless, either. He’s competent, if new to music, and his girl next door has a serious claim, every bit as strong as the punk rock girl with the great voice.
