Fuuka – 11
What in the world just happened? In the span of 20 odd minutes we saw the show head go down an irreversible path and then turn around..?
What the Flying fu..
With Fuuka’s sudden departure from The Fallen Moon last week being a pretty big game changer, I was ready for big things to happen this week. Between the band falling apart and the strain on Yuu and Koyuki’s relationship, I don’t think it was too far of a stretch to expect the other three members to have problems of their own. And honestly, I thought it was pretty amazing that we got to see The Falling Moon spectacularly fall apart. With a majority of the band members finding something to fill the hole that the band left, I wouldn’t have minded if things ended with Yuu being stuck in a crappy mood with Koyuki by his side.
Except, that’s not what happened. After watching three out of five members of The Fallen Moon start to devote their life to other things, I was flabbergasted that Yuu was somehow able to convince them all to come back. Especially when you consider things like Sara on the verge of joining another band and Mikasa literally giving up any attachment to music in order to be an obedient child. Don’t get me wrong though, I for one really love unrealistic come back stories and what Fuuka is doing right now feels just like that. But man, it would have been nice to see the show go down a less followed path in the anime scene.
HOWEVER, I don’t approve of Yuu and Koyuki breaking up. The two were literally made for each other and Yuu literally had a once in a lifetime opportunity staring him right at him. God thinking about what happened makes me so salty I don’t even want to talk about it anymore.
So, as it was clearly pointed out in the comments last week, we’re entering unknown territory. Early on the in season I accidentally read that something happens to Fuuka around this point in the story but the anime went and drastically changed things up. Something I think is pretty cool but makes me wonder — why did Fuuka have to go and have a giant personality shift? She’s supposed to be the girl who keeps on running head first into the headwind. But instead we’ve been given a rather negative Fuuka who can barely keep her smiling face on in public!
Hopefully we get some drastic change next week.
With this week’s episode dropping everything on us all in one go, it looks like all that remains is whether or not Fuuka and Yuu get to have a happy ending. And seeing how a lot of other things are riding on whatever decision Fuuka makes, hopefully we’ll all get a happy ending. See you then!
