Kuzu No Honkai:The Thin Blurred Line Between Love and Lust

Have you ever thought how great it would’ve been to have a romantic drama with the cast of Evangelion+Eva Heinemann+Light Yagami?No?So,it’s just me,huh?Well your getting one anyway.It’s basically Texhnolyze set in high school.
Love is a flawed concept and as a human being who are a flawed creation,it always leads us to make mistakes.Mistakes that we can never take back,which becomes a part of us and haunts us at every turn.Kuzu No Honkai is an anime that tries to subject these mistakes.It’s not perfect but it’s pretty bold in it’s execution.This anime has a big cast an

d for the most part they do their job pretty damn well.The females in this anime are far better than the males.Specially the character of Akane Minagawa was very well set up and the execution was perfect up until the final act.That’s also my biggest gripe with the show.Even after having such a good start the show falters on the last act.It becomes a bit too much blissfully optimistic.I don’t have problem with the idea that they went for in the last act,it’s the execution I have all the problems with.Even then it was pretty decent.It’s a gorgeous looking show with top notch animation and a fantastic musical score.The score fits the theme and the ending track is probably my favorite ending track of all time.Although the show deals with a lot of psychological issues,it’s not as subtle and in-depth as I would’ve wanted it to be.It kind of left me disappointed in that department.A lot of people are saying that it’s actual life. Not make believe love stories.No,it’s not.It’s as unrealistic as a generic harem.Nothing is actual life.That’s why they are work of fiction.But the characters did have really good characterization and they use sex as psychological moral metaphor.Yes,they use it more than they should but it’s still pretty damn good.I don’t usually talk about voice acting but the woman Chika Anzai who voiced Hanabi did a fantastic job.This anime is certainly not for everyone.To a lot of people it’s going to come across pretentious or a generic harem with good visuals and music but the anime still is an interesting view of that same generic concept and the first 6 episodes are more than worth your time
