Anime Elimination Tournament – Winter 2017 – Week 8

Establishing a ranking is getting more and more difficult with each passing week. I’m going to regret each anime that gets eliminated at this point.

I don’t really know which anime I liked the least, actually. Each one was pretty good in its own ways, but there needs to be a decision.

Here’s the ranking:

  1. Gabriel DropOut
  2. Little Witch Academia
  3. Kuzu no Honkai
  4. Masamune-kun no Revenge
  5. Onihei
  6. Fuuka

Bye bye, Fuuka.

Haruna Yuu, the main character of this anime, is an introverted boy who spends a lot of time on Twitter. One day, he meets Akitsuki Fuuka, who is your typical bright cheerful girl. Fuuka loves to sing and pushes Yuu and other people to form a band with her. Fuuka is a big fan of Hinashi Koyuki, who happens to (conveniently) be Yuu’s childhood friend.

Predictably, an awkward love triangle develops. Perhaps not even that, since it seems that Koyuki is the only one conscious of her own feelings. The show was pretty interesting at the beginning, but the lack of character development made it quite boring already. At the end of episode eight we are left with a cliffhanger: maybe something is starting to develop… but I had enough.

Basing on the previous episodes, I fear that whichever cue won’t be developped as well as I wish it to be, and the anime that are still in the game are all quite good, so there is a certain level to keep  by now.

Do I recommend it? Actually, yes. It’s by no means a bad show; don’t set your expectation too high and it should be a good anime to spend your free time with.
